Hotel Gaviota 1511
The 2-star hotel Gaviota 1511, small but very comfortable, is located in the center of Baracoa, the first of the towns founded by the Spaniards after their settlement in Cuba. For this reason, it is one of the best options for those who wish to discover the city.
Founded in the recent 2011, in celebration of the 500 years of the town, the Hotel 1511 was known as Hotel Legrá during the times of the Spanish colony. Then, in 1961, it was renamed Hotel Liberación and closed years later, due to the increasing deterioration of its facilities.
Among the major attractions near the hotel is the Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, a monument that preserves the famous relic of the "Cruz de Parra", placed there by Cristóbal Colón himself, as well as the Casa de la Trova.
In general, the Hotel 1511 does not have many services, beyond its snack bar, which has capacity for just over 12 people and offers cocktail services, beverages in general and light foods. It does not have a restaurant, although the central location of the hotel, just a few steps from the Plaza Independencia, allows you to find several paladares with very nice offers nearby. There is Internet service with prepaid cards.
On the other hand, the hotel has 15 rooms, divided into two blocks in a two-story building. Each room is heated and has a private bathroom, satellite TV, telephone, safe and mini bar.
Although small and somewhat simple, with a very sober elegance, the Hotel 1511 is a very good option for those who are visiting the hospitable Baracoa.
