Iconic building reopens as new Cuba hotel in Holguin
A brand new hotel and former historical building has just opened its doors to visitors in the small colonial town of Gibara, in Cuba's eastern province of Holguin. Built upon the ruins of what was declared a National Monument in 2004, the new Ordono hotel is set to seduce history-loving guests in search of enriching cultural experiences during their Cuba holidays.
Cuba’s Tourism Minister, Manuel Marrero recently attended the re-opening ceremony of an iconic hotel in the Caribbean island’s eastern province of Holguin. After undergoing a thorough renovation and restoration process, the Ordono Hotel is now ready to welcome guests planning to spend Cuba holidays in the country’s quaint and picturesque coastal town of Gibara, in the city of Holguin.
Once a historical and architectural marvel that had slowly wiltered after the passing of the years and the near-total abandonment, the Ordono Hotel now majestically rises once again in a building that was named a National Monument in 2004.
Now joining the chain of Hoteles Encanto, a collection of historical hotels in Cuba that have special heritage value and which comprise many colonial mansions, fully renovated to their former glory, the newly reopened property has been fully restored to provide guests with 27 rooms over three floors, while maintaining its original layout and colonial look, now fully refreshed.
Accommodation at the new hotel includes a suite and a junior suite while facilities also include a rooftop bar offering uninterrupted views over the picturesque colonial buildings of Gibara and its surrounding areas with vast expanses of coastline and rolling hills.
Mr Marrero said that thanks to this new property the town of Gibara would grow in popularity among travellers seeking cultural and historical value during their holidays in Cuba. As an immediate ripple effect of new visitors arriving to the town, the tourism minister also added that Gibara would develop with further accommodation options in the pipeline and more infrastructural investment to appeal to a new influx of tourists.
The small but beautiful town will massively benefit from tourism and Chairman of Cubanacan Company (the managing company of Hoteles Encanto) said that the hotel stands out with its selection of exclusive services, comfort and beauty, therefore, he urged its staffers to bet on Cuban cuisine and do it at all its top.
The new four-star Ordoño Hotel comes back to life with its former look fully refreshed, where builders followed the style of its initial construction, in-keeping with its original features and colonial allure.
