Santa Clara, a lively town with a rich, revolutionary history, is a popular destination, but was often zipped through en route to somewhere else. The lack of comfortable, well-appointed hotels in town was partially responsible. All that changed in 2012 when a major capital investment updated and repaired the Hotel América.

Originally built in the 50’s, the Hotel América is a landmark building (some Art Deco details remain on the façade) in the city center across from the iconic Coppelia ice cream parlor. Thanks to the renovation, everything here feels bright, fresh, and clean, including the 27 standard rooms.

The América is a stylish, comfortable boutique hotel with an emphasis on service. However, there’s no elevator here, which may be important for visitors with mobility issues.

Breakfast and dinner are served in the small, but well-designed, restaurant and cocktails are mixed in the lobby bar. The pool (on the roof) is big enough considering there are only 27 rooms here.



Hotel América is located in downtown Santa Clara, 100 meters from Parque Vidal , the city’s main square. Santa Clara is the capital of Villa Clara province, in central Cuba, about 50km from the northern coast. The city is 280km west of Havana, 196km from Varadero and 114 km north of Trinidad.


Standard-no-Windows Room
The standard rooms are fairly small, but nicely decorated in a lime green, grey and white color scheme. All rooms have a private bathroom (shower only), air conditioning and satellite TV, hairdryer and safe-deposit box.

These rooms lack windows, the Hotel has few rooms with a window; which has to be requested on the reservation and will be confirmed upon availability upon arrival.
