At $40 a night this classy hotel is a bargain. Situated on Plaza Marti is is easy to go almost anywhere. On weekends the streets are blocked for a good fair. Hotel includes breakfast and teh restaurant is very good. The breakfast is filling and the coffee- you guessed it - rocket fuel. There is a nice bar and when I was there on Mother's Day everyone was in a good friendly mood.The roof has another bar that opens only in teh evening. Wifi must be gotten outside in the park.

We arrived unannounced and found a cramped dark little room: clean, good AC and a working safe. The Lobby is a trip back and time and architecture. Comfortable to sit and enjoy the open window, have a drink, relax and plan the next outing. The restaurant was great value.

We stayed at Libertad for 2 nights in November, 2017. It is a stylish old hotel with beautiful colonial design. It is very clean, has good air conditioning and the staff are wonderful. The restaurant was equally impressive. If we're ever in Santiago again we would love to stay there again.

I can't really comment the rooms, because we never saw them. We choose this hotel because it looked charming (at least from the outside) and seemed to be good value. We made a reservation that was confirmed 3 months before. When we turned up and presented the prepaid voucher, the woman at the reception started to look in papers, asked if we had other voucher (?) and made a phone call. Then she told us that they didn't have us on the list and they had no room for us! She then turned the back at me and attended other guests. I asked her what to do, and she said: I don't know, and turned away again. I stayed put, and when the doorman (!) came to my help, she very reluctantly, made some more phone calls, and we were followed to nearby Hotel Rex (also the Islazul chain).

We decided to stay here because of the price, across the street from Plaza de Marte, the good news is that it was a good value, clean and safe. The only negative was that on the roof was a noisy bar and the Plaza was always packed with noisy events. This was not always a bad thing as we went out into the Plaza often and saw so many interesting events. I suggest definitely spending a couple of nights here and then a couple of nights at a different location.

The Libertad has only 17 rooms, all of which are up a flight of stairs in a building with no elevator (lift). Keep this in mind if you have difficulty walking stairs. You can walk up another flight to a rooftop bar that gives a view of the adjacent plaza. On the main floor there's an adjacent restaurant where you can have the included breakfast or can order dinner. The breakfast was nothing special, so I didn't consider having dinner there. Extra points for service, though, since they opened early for me one day so that I could have breakfast before heading off to the bus station for an early bus. I liked the location on the Plaza Marte, but some might want to be a bit closer to the Parque Céspedes. There's a jazz club and a grocery store across the street, and a popular bakery nearby. The room was adequate, but I was unable to get hot water in the shower either morning that I was there - for me, that's a big negative. The WiFi worked well, but the hotel didn't have any of the Nauta cards that you need for surfing the Internet, so I had to wait at the ETECSA office (6 blocks away) to buy the necessary cards. The WiFi signal is fine in the lobby and bar areas, but not in the room. I doubt if I would stay here again if I returned to Santiago. It's not that the Libertad is bad, though, but just that I saw other places that I would prefer to try on a future visit.

I have no complaints about this hotel. It's pleasant, clean and well located. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We had a room towards the back and noise was not a problem despite the party going on in the square opposite. Breakfast was okay and the roof bar gives a good panoramic view of the city. The hotel has wifi, but you need an eteca card.

We took a tour of the entire island and Santiago was our first stop after Varadero. I have to say that this hotel was our best experience from Santiago. It is placed in the new center of the city, very near to a plaza where they have wi-fi, so sometimes we could use it from the hotel lobby. The rooms are a bit small, but they are clean. Because usually the building in Cuba do not have windows and the hotel lobby was open, we did have a problem with the noise and we staid in a room that was not on the part with the street. As an inconvenient, the breakfast dishes did not vary too much but the taste of the food was very good. We staid 2 nights and also had dinner at the hotel's restaurant, again, no complaints here. The staff was really nice and helpful.

Nice hotel very well located on the Plaza de Marte (city center) with clean rooms. I stayed there for 2 nights in a room (without window) during the Carnival in July 2015. The breakfast is included but quite average and basic compared to what you can get in a casa. The receptionists were quite helpful with all the travelers struggling to find an accommodation during this busy period. Overall nice impression although it is not as good a value for money as a casa.
