Facilities of Hotel Santa Isabel

There are two bars in the Hotel Santa Isabel the "Santovenia" and "Jaruco" .There is one cafeteria "El Globo" and “ El Condado” restaurant divided in two living rooms: the Pink Hall (a reserved restaurant) with capacity for 24 people and the Blue Hall  with room for 26 persons. The elegant restaurant and the welcoming patio of the hotel are exclusive true pieces.

According to Julia Woodruff description, columnist of the time, the patio was "full with small tables, and in the center there was a beautiful stone piece with ferns and flowers sprouted, as well as jets of water that fell inside a pond with brilliant colourful fish”.

In absence of that spout, it was opted for a solution that reinforces the historical sense with which the palace was restored: in the center of the patio, there is a fountain that also remembers the one that existed long ago in the Santovenia fifth house, property of the family and erected in the Calzada del Cerro  in 1841.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the famous and historical Hotel Santa Isabel. 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 and supplying some of the photographs.

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

Best wishes for 2024
