On the fourth floor is recharged ornamentation and arches windows, supported by slender columns. Its architectural elegance adds aesthetic value to the overall environmental monumental area of Parque Cespedes.

The pinnacle of the building is through a simple entablature where architraves, friezes and cornices have simple trim. As interesting detail denticles appear in each section corresponding to the pillars. People in the entablature are highlighted. Above shows the parapet, and massive stone also with pillars that mark the different sections.

Entering the hotel majestically in the lobby we met with a wide corridor for a coffee room, with magnificent views of the Parque Cespedes. The remaining floors are for rooms with access through large and sculptural stairs. His eclectic style enhances its magnificence.

The part of the Casa Granda called ROOF GARDEN was planned in December 1916 by Carlos Segrera itself, work executed under the action of developer Gerardo Vegas. From here you can see beautiful views of the city.

Between 1993 and 1995, this elegant structure was a general rehabilitation of which was main architect designer Sandra Alvarez Barthelemy. Today remains one of the distinguished buildings of this city, and with it part of the history and culture of Santiago de Cuba.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Casa Granda in Santiago de Cuba City. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2017
