Hotel Caballeriza is an unusual horsey-themed hotel in Holguin, also known as City of Parks. 

Hotel Caballeriza, as its name in Spanish indicates, was formerly a stable for the cavalry of the Spanish army, and the horsey theme dominates the décor and furnishings throughout. It is situated in the attractive little low-key port Gibara on Cuba’s unspoilt north east coast. Paintings of horses are ubiquitous; wagon wheels decorate the walls alongside antique clocks and wrought iron candelabras. Dating from 1810, the property has been renovated to a high standard while maintaining the Spanish colonial architectural style of the residences of the 19th century Cuban aristocracy. There are 21 spacious guest rooms with air-conditioning, set over three floors around an inner courtyard with tables and chairs where you can sip a Cuban coffee. The hotel has its own bar and restaurant.
