Once a general store, this majestic three-story colonial oozes character. Renovated recently with designs by young architects, it has maintained enormous rooms, particularly on the 3rd floor, some with details like filigree pillars. There's 27 in total plus a lovely roof terrace. Run by Cubanacán.
Throw in exemplary service and an ethereal Gibara setting and you'll feel like Louis XIV kicking back in Versailles (without the guilty conscience). Best hotel in Cuba? Definitely a contender.
