Cuban hotel receives a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

Posted: 02-Jun-16 13:46

Five-star hotel Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal has been honoured with a Certificate of Excellence by the American travel company TripAdvisor, the number one website offering peer-to-peer advice to worldwide holidaymakers. The Cuban hotel is located in one of Old Havana's most charming colonial squares, in a building commissioned by a Spanish alderman at the end of the 18th century.

Cuban hotel receives a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

A luxury Cuban hotel, where tradition and modernity blend in a very peculiar way, has been selected by TripAdvisor as one of the most recommended places to stay in Havana. The American travel company honoured Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal hotel with a Certificate of Excellence, a distinction that marks a year of glowing travellers´ reviews.

Located in the San Francisco de Asis plaza, close to the sea, the hotel stands as one of the best-preserved buildings erected in the 18th century, but it also excels with the minimalist and contemporary decoration of the interiors.

Tourists reviewing the majestic colonial property on TripAdvisor say that its location makes the Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal a very convenient accommodation for holidaymakers visiting the oldest part of Cuba´s capital. In the vicinities of the building are various art galleries, shops, and cafes, including the prestigious and elegant Cafe del Oriente.

But most importantly, the hotel is also adjacent to the San Francisco de Asis basilic, a grand building dating back to the 16th century and which now hosts exhibitions and the best classical music concerts in the city.

Do you happen to like Architecture? Do you enjoy colonial surroundings? Is within-a-walking-distance an idea that appeals to you? Then you should stay here!!!!!”, wrote an American tour guide manager on TripAdvisor when reviewing the Cuban hotel.

From the terrace of the old palace now turned into a hotel, guests can enjoy a privileged view of Old Havana, the colonial part of Cuba´s capital. There is a perfectly positioned telescope enabling visitors to take in more up-close views of the city while the onsite restaurant there serves high-quality food and cocktails. Reviewers on the internationally popular website recommend mojito to those who enjoy a good tipple, and seafood as the best choice for a fresh meal.

In their comments on Tripadvisor tourists also make reference to the beauty of the interior courtyard of the Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal hotel, typical of the colonial architecture in Havana. The contemporary design of the rooms and other facilities blends interestingly with the courtyard and the baroque-style facade of this six-story building.

The Certificate of Excellence awarded by TripAdvisor accounts for the quantity and quality of the reviews submitted by travellers in a one-year period. This recognition helps travellers identify the top properties offering high-standard services.
