The Encanto Palacio Azul Hotel, the first establishment of the Hoteles E brand in Cuba, was inaugurated in the central province of Cienfuegos.
Tourist authorities said that during the first stage, 50 Hoteles E will open in places of historic and patrimonial interest in the cities of Havana, Camaguey, Santiago de Cuba and Baracoa.
According to the experts, restoration works in the buildings that will house the hotels have been painstaking to keep their harmony with the environment and to preserve local traditions.
In the case of the Encanto Palacio Azul Hotel, the original building was a mansion constructed 87 years ago.
The building has a Spanish colonial architectural style with French influence, a common characteristic in most buildings in Cienfuegos.
The establishment offers seven rooms (two doubles and a triple) and will be run by the company Hoteles Cubanacan.
