History of Hotel Encanto Palacio Azul

The Hotel Encanto Palacio Azul built among the years 1920 and 1921 with an eclectic style, designed by Alfredo Fontana, an important Italian architect whose value of use initial was as estate of housing of the high Cienfuegos bourgeoisie; and later on it would be headquarters of several entities, up to the 2004 that it was transformed into hotel.

The conversion of the building into a hotel is a typically and eccentrically Cuban affair. a meticulous restoration that respected their original architectural securities, it was possible to rescue the one that a beautiful jewel is considered.

Reinaugurated on Tuesday September 4 the 2007 as Hotel Palacio Azul, the first of a new project (Encanto Hotels) that is not another thing that the recovery and restoration of facilities with patrimonial securities in the main historical squares of Cuba, to transform them into hotels, and to distinguish them all with custom services and of excellence.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the famous and historical Hotel Palacio Azul in Cienfuegos City. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2017
