We are located in the heart of the city, in the historic center of the so-called "Athens of Cuba". Just 300 meters from the Sauto Theater, a national monument, located in the foundational square of the city "Plaza de la Vigía", which has a wiffi area, in front of it is the Firemen's Museum and in the vicinity the promenade of the San Juan River among other attractions. Close to the house is the exchange house for coins, markets, bars, restaurants and the Havanatur branch (rental of guided tours to different destinations). We are halfway between Havana (100km) and Varadero beach (30km) and 20km from the "coral beach" diving center.

The room has all the comforts: split air conditioning, hot and cold water, refrigerator, safe, a double bed and a staff, bed linen and towels with daily change, mattresses with good comfort, large terrace overlooking the colonial city. 

We offer breakfast service and light meals not included in the room price

In our house we communicate in Spanish and English, we are sociable, we like to meet new people. We love nature and we feel committed to protecting it, due to that we decided to name our hostel "Polymita", alluding to these endemic molluscs of the Cuban fauna, whose shells have the most colorful and exuberant colors, considered one of the most beautiful on the planet .

    Ich hatte einen tollen Aufenthalt bei Mónica in Matanzas. Sie war sehr hilfsbereit und hat sich super um mich gekümmert. Das Zimmer ist sehr sauber, hell und geräumig. Die Lage ist auch optimal, um die Stadt kennenzulernen. Ich kann das Zimmer bei Mónica nur weiterempfehlen.

    Muchas gracias por la maravillosa estancia, Monica.

    Ein wirklich netter Aufenthalt bei Monica. Das Zimmer ist sauber und man kann dort gut schlafen. Leider ist es etwas laut da das Casa direkt an der Hauptstraße liegt. Dennoch zu empfehlen.

    Hostal Polymita es una opcion perfecta a precio modico, para viaje familiar hasta 3 personas y ahorrar dinero si fuera el caso. Las condiciones de la habiatacion muy buenas, aire acondicionado sin ruido, colchones con confort, habitacion espaciosa y limpia. Se respira paz y tranquilidad, se siente como estar en casa. Mi estancia fue maravillosa. Los propietarios son una familia educada y acogedora. La Sra Monica conoce muy bien su ciudad y brinda ruta para que conozca de la mejor forma Matanzas, a pesar que estuve poco tiempo la ciudad merece mas tiempo para recorrerla. LO RECOMIENDO 100%, si volviera a Matanzas, sin dudas volviera a Hostal Polymita
