We had the pleasure of having our small intimate wedding at this location about two weeks ago and I have to say that it was put together beautifully. We had local friends and my family come from Canada and everyone thought it went beautifully. Our rooms were nice and clean, with air conditioning and wifi accessible which is soo nice! I would say the walking distance is a stones throw away from the centre of town but different people have a different idea of what walkable means. In my case it takes 2 minutes to walk to the centre therefore it is 100% within walking distance so take that as you will. The owner and staff are truly hospitable, likeable and accommodating to your needs and have gone above and beyond to provide great accommodations and services. We have since our wedding come back once to stay in the city and I always look forward to staying here. We would not recommend another hostal in the city apart from here and will always come back here when we need a place to stay. Also something worth mentioning is that the covid protocols are very good here and they show great concern to make the health and safety of clients as a priority. All in all, If you want a beautiful venue with great staff within a good distance to the town square I highly recommend staying here. There are many different hostal options around town but D'cordero is the one that has a very good reputation throughout town and also had the ability to meet our expectations when we got here. Also if you want to do a wedding here as well would recommend!!! But due to space I would suggest no more than 20.

Don't bother looking at staying anywhere else. This place is amazingly good value. The location is just a couple of blocks from the main square, the rooms are beautifully decorated as are the lounge areas. The courtyard where you have breakfast is gorgeous and you can also order a dinner to have during your stay and I highly recommend that as it's great value and a beautiful meal. The staff are wonderful and so helpful. They organised for a tour guide to show us around Santa Clara as we only had 1 afternoon there. Ignatius was excellent. He took us to see the major sites and he knew all of the history and his English was great too. All in all, totally loved this place and was probably my favourite place to stay in Cuba.
