Hotel Description

An intimate boutique hotel next to Sancti Spíritus' Iglesia Mayor on the city’s main plaza, this mansion (1818) was once the residence of renowned doctor Don Rudesindo García Rijo, after whom the hotel is named.

Fully restored and opened to the public in 2001, the Hotel Encanto Rijo is a gem. The former mansion’s bright blue façade combines with columns, wrought-iron balconies, and blue window shutters to serve as a guest magnet. Indeed, it’s one of the most popular properties in Cuba’s provincial travel portfolio and among the city’s most iconic architectural examples.

Like many grand houses from the period, this one features a central patio. Once used for domestic activities, today it’s a peaceful, leafy spot to enjoy breakfast or sip a cocktail or cold beer.

The colonial atmosphere here is enhanced by lanterns, wooden staircases, wrought iron details, rocking chairs, French carpentry, brick walls, tiled floors, angelic sculptures and beamed ceilings. Such attention to detail is maintained in the 16 guest rooms.

Next to the Plaza Honorato and close to the Nuestra Senora de la Caridad church, other interesting sights within reach include the Casa de la Trova, Parque Serafín Sánchez and the medieval-looking Yayabo Bridge. This 500-year old town is full of intriguing colonial sites – have a walk and look around!
