Restored colonial mansion in the heart of town, with spacious rooms, high ceilings and plenty of colonial character.

This attractive colonial mansion of Hotel del Rijo has been lovingly restored and oozes colonial charm. It is centrally located in Sancti Spiritus on the leafy Plaza Honorato del Castillo, just south of Parque Serafín. Its understated rooms are ample in size with high ceilings and pictures of the city from earlier eras in its history; some have views over the square and church tower.

The building wraps around a pretty patio with fountain – also the location of its small restaurant.  This is connected by wide arched corridors to other relaxation areas with pastel walls and historic character. There is a TV lounge and bar leading out on to the plaza.
