If you are looking for an attractive boutique hotel which is perfectly placed for enjoying central Matanzas, you will have a memorable time at Hotel Encanto Velasco.
A stay at Encanto Velasco is like stepping back in time with stunning colonial features like high, ornate ceilings, marble columns & a beautifully designed bar. The hotel was renovated in 2011 & provides a wonderful mix of colonial & neo-classical features, together with modern comforts. Fronting the main plaza of Matanzas, Velasco is only 50 yards from the famous Sauto theatre, one of Cuba’s national treasures. It is also a short walk from Matanzas Bay & numerous bars & restaurants.
The large atrium in the centre of Velasco’s restaurant gives it a comfortable airy feel, even on the hottest days, & the restaurant serves good quality food at reasonable price, though breakfast can be fairly basic. The bar at Velasco is particularly attractive with beautiful wooden features & great service from friendly staff. The coffee here is also not to be missed.
Velasco hotel has no lift so guests with mobility issues may not benefit from the stunning views afforded from top floor rooms. But, whatever your mobility, if you want stunning surroundings in an unbeatable location, you will not find anywhere better in Matanzas.
