The boutique Hotel Beltran de Santa Cruz – the former mansion of a marquis – would make the perfect setting for a film set in the 18th or 19th century. But rather than black and white or sepia-toned, this movie would be in full Technicolor: the Beltran is one of Old Havana’s most colorful hotels.
Yellow, green and Caribbean blue walls, window shutters and hand-turned wooden balustrades fill this hotel with bursts of color. Natural light, filtered through beautiful dark blue, red and orange ¨vitrales¨ – arched, stained-glass windows – add another layer of color and hue to the intimate interiors here.
With only 11 rooms, this intimacy translates to guest accommodations and service. The Beltran de Santa Cruz also has a meeting room worthy of a former palace.
The open air patio, once the scene of the marquis’ domestic activities (or children’s play area), has been transformed into a welcoming terrace with bar. This is common in many of Havana’s historic hotels and is a good spot to enjoy some liquid refreshment combined with a touch of history.
The Hotel Beltran also has a convenient Old Havana location, set on quiet San Ignacio street. From here it’s just steps to Plaza Vieja, one of Havana's most beautiful squares.

The Beltran’s historical flavor is maintained in the standard rooms where wrought-iron and wood furniture serve as striking complement to mosaic tiled floors. All fixtures and facilities are modern, but blend in well.
Junior Suite Room
Junior suites are similar to the standard rooms in that they’re decorated with wooden furniture and wrought iron beds, but the layout is more spacious. Suites here have all the modern facilities typical to a room in this range.
Address: San Ignacio 411 entre Muralla y Sol, Habana Vieja, Old Havana, Havana, Cuba.
This sweet little hotel on a small, lovely street, where laundry hangs on nearby balconies to dry, gives a taste of genuine Havana. From here you can walk to picturesque plazas, museums, and restaurants through streets filled with unique architecture.
