Lonely Planet review

This elegant hotel (1914), artfully described by Graham Greene in his book Our Man in Havana, has 58 rooms and a classic red-and-white-striped front awning. Greene used to stay here in the late 1950s where he enjoyed relaxing on the streetside terrace, while his famous pen captured the nocturnal essence of the city as it wafted up from the bustling square below. Half a century later, the atmosphere is little different.

Aside from Che Guevara posters and some seriously erratic service on reception, not much has changed. The hotel's 5th-floor Roof Garden Bar is well worth the CUC$2 minimum consumption charge and the terrace just above Parque Céspedes is an obligatory photo stop for foreign tourists on the lookout for bird's-eye city views. There's music here most nights and an occasional buffet on the roof.

Our independent authors have visited Hotel Casa Granda and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Santiago de Cuba.
