Typical for Santiago are the many offerings of apartments at extremely low prices in the center of the city. The Altura Suites group is excellent. Their apartments are clean, neat, well stocked with kitchen appliances, and an efficient, friendly staff.
In Havana we will stay at the historical Hotel Colina.
The Colina is generally regarded as the coziest and friendliest of Vedado’s budget hotels. It is located between the University and the Hotel Habana Libre.
The 80 rooms are basic, with air-con, satellite TV and intermittent hot water, plus there’s a good people-watching sidewalk café just off the reception. Though not exactly luxurious, it’s a good option if you like the location and want a good price.
