Hotel Armadores de Santander


Hotel Armadores de Santander This majestic hotel stands up at a corner on the Avenida del Puerto, a main street which surrounds the perimeter of the oldest area of Havana. Its architecture and interior decoration resemble the style of those buildings located in the Santander harbour, Spain. Hanging from the ceiling you will find very similar lanterns used in old vessels, all along the three buildings belonging to the complex. Eclectic and neoclassic styles are shown in perfect balance in this hotel, where architectural integration was achieved after hard restoration work. Roman and Corinthian elements could be identified on both columns and faade. The original building was built in the 19th century. The name comes from tradition. Installation was originally used as main offices by several ship-owners from Santander, Spain, including the Count of La Mortera, owner of an important fleet that sailed the Atlantic Ocean bringing goods and troops to Cuba in past centuries.
