Santiago de Cuba welcomes new Hotel Imperial in the heart of the city

Posted: 31-Oct-16 12:26

Although its reopening hasn’t been much publicised, as of last September, Santiago de Cuba has one more quality lodging space right at the heart of the city. After extensive renovations works carried out throughout its 1915 exterior and interiors, this updated boutique property is sure to charm and delight visitors. Its location on busy Enramadas street, the city’s main shopping artery, only steps away from scenic Parque Cespedes, make this newly refreshed hotel one of the most coveted.

Santiago de Cuba welcomes new Hotel Imperial in the heart of the city

A brightly shining gem has just opened in Santiago de Cuba, the island’s pearl of the east. But this is more than a new hotel opening, it’s a relic from the past being brought back to its yesteryear glory with added modern conveniences that don’t look one ounce out of place against its colonial furnishings and décor.

Not just any ordinary hotel development, the reopening of the Hotel Imperial, rescues from oblivion a 20th century jewel, set in a stunning colonial building, the exteriors of which have also been fully brought back to their former beauty. With all repair works having been carried out with painstakingly meticulous care to preserve and protect the hotel’s original features and layout, guests will feel like stepping back in time to 1915s circa once they enter its threshold.

Combining historic values with an eclectic style, rooms have been furnished with modern beds and facilities while the scenic rooftop bar and restaurant offers a more modern atmosphere with striking views over the city.

Its location is also worthy of praise. Standing right on busy Enramadas street, Santiago’s main shopping artery, on the corner of lively St Thomas street, guests will be ideally based to explore the city’s historic centre on foot. The leafy and utterly romantic Parque Cespedes is just steps away, and it’s the perfect place to peek into the daily ways of life of this sultry Caribbean city. From guitar-strumming aficionados to flirting couples and heated chit-chats, this is one perfect people-watching spot, day or night.

Hotel Imperial, belonging to the Cuban chain of Encanto Hotels, offers 39 modernly equipped guest rooms, complete with air-conditioning, satellite TV, telephone, safe and mini bar. While it may not be the most luxurious place to stay in the city, it certainly is one of the top ones to stay at, not least of all because Santiago de Cuba is in dire need of more world-class standard hotels.
