Only 30 km from Varadero beach in the center of Matanzas, the recently-restored Hotel Velasco (dating from 1902), combines a friendly, luxurious atmosphere with personal touches.

Hotel Velasco – with its eclectic architecture and great historical and cultural value – is one of the most important buildings in downtown Matanzas. The interior renovation made elegant use of marble, granite and precious woods, accentuating the historical feel of this small hotel.

Hotel Velasco received the Hoteles E (Encanto) logo and is part of a project with the aim to rescue architectural landmarks in historic urban areas and upgrade them with modern amenities so they can be put in to service as tourist hotels. Hoteles E are designed to support Cuba’s burgeoning cultural tourism sector while emphasizing personal attention in an intimate atmosphere.

Hotel Velasco offers 17 comfortable air-conditioned rooms – 10 standard rooms, 4 mini suites and 3 junior suites. All have a bathroom with toilet, air-conditioning, TV, phone, mini bar, safe-deposit box and Internet service. Rooms with balconies overlooking the busy road and park still are quiet thanks to heavy wooden shutters. On the top floor you can enjoy great views of the city and the Bahia de Matanzas.

The hotel is only a short walk away from the Sauto Theatre, the old City Hall, the Church of San Pedro de Versailles and the Pharmacy Museum.
