Armadores de Santander: Comfort at Havana's Entrance

The Cuban capital, a city that boasts over 500 years of history, traditions and culture, is one of the most relevant attractions for thousands of vacationers who visit the largest Antillean Island every year.

With a population of more than two million, the City of Havana has a historic center where dozens of buildings are showcases of different architectural styles that have left their imprint on the city.

Old Havana is one of the hot spots in the development of the leisure industry in the Cuban capital, since many vacationers are interested in walking its streets, full of colonial history, and staying in hotels that are reminiscent of past centuries.

One of these options is the Armadores de Santander Hotel, run by the Cuban company Habaguanex S.A., which is in charge of administering all tourist facilities in Old Havana and is attached to the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana.

The building's history dates to the 19th century, when Don Ramón Herrera y Sancibrián came from the Spanish city of Santander and settled in Havana.

A major ship owner in that Spanish port city, Herrera y Sancibrián was named Count of Mortera by Royal Decree on January 20, 1876.

He contributed to the name of the building, since he was the proprietor of a fleet that operated in the Caribbean. His company transported cargo and troops from and to Spain, and its offices were located in the building that houses the hotel today.

The hotel consists of three buildings, constructed by José Cabrero Mier, a native to Santander, a city that is present in the coat of arms on the upper part of the main building. The big gate at the main entrance bears the initials J.C. after the building's owner.

Before being included in the list of establishments run by Habaguanex S.A., the building was the seat of the Balearic Center, a charity and welfare association for Spanish residents.

The hotel has 39 comfortable rooms, including a special suite and two junior suites, all of which are equipped with all modern amenities needed to enjoy leisure in an urban environment.

The rooms are refreshed by the sea breeze, and from many of them, such as the terrace on the top floor, guests can enjoy the privilege of seeing from their balconies the ships arriving in and departing from the Havana bay.

In the hotel's gastronomic offer stands out the Cantabria Restaurant, which serves typical dishes from the region of Santander and from international cuisine.

With all these characteristics, the Armadores de Santander Hotel is a unique offer that those who come to Cuba to get in contact with its past cannot refuse.
