Lonely Planet review
Cheap Cuban hotel chain Islazul breaks out of its ugly Soviet-themed concrete block obsession and goes colonial in this venerable sky-blue beauty on Plaza de Marte. Eighteen clean (if sometimes dark) high-ceilinged rooms and a pleasant street-side restaurant are a bonus. The belting (until 1am) rooftop disco isn't.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Libertad and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Santiago de Cuba.
