Hostal San Basilio

Boutique hotel in Santiago de Cuba

The lovely eight-room San Basilio (named for the original name of the street on which it lies) is cozy and refreshingly contemporary – with a romantic colonial setting including a petite patio dripping with ferns. Rooms come with DVD players, umbrellas, bathroom scales and mini bottles of rum. Alas, some mattresses need replacing. A small restaurant serves breakfast and lunch.
