About the Homestay
Hostal D 'Cordero is a house located in the center of the city, very close to Leoncio Vidal Park, in the historical center of Santa Clara. Built in 1930 with eclectic style for residence of Dr. Elio Fileno de Cárdenas, who was Senator of the Republic for the province of Las Villas from 1940 to 1948.
The property has 5 comfortable private rooms, high strut, with natural ventilation and air conditioning. The first of the rooms is decorated in Venetian style, followed by another one that has an elegant Louis XVI furniture, both with old baths with marine motifs. Also, room number 3 responds to the taste of the decade of the 50 with all its restored pieces and an extensive bathroom that also responds to the way of the time. As a special detail this piece holds a large-scale painting by local artist Juan Ramón Valdés Gómez (Yiki). The last of the rooms stands out for its Louis XV decoration, a large window with beautiful stained glass windows and a living room with wicker furniture in the Diana style, as well as an abundant collection of Cuban and foreign paintings, old and contemporary.
The rest of the house also remains decorated with several collections of paintings, porcelains, crystals, bronzes and lamps, among other elegant objects. The living room and the parquet show beautiful mosaics imported from Italy and furniture that belonged to the Cuban poet Dulce María Loynaz, National Literature Prize in 1987 and Miguel de Cervantes Prize in 1992.
It also has a large central courtyard surrounded by a corridor with graceful columns, ornamental plants and a pergola that invites to rest and inspires tranquility, as well as an old fountain that represents the logo of the house.

Casa splendida e raffinata. Molto calda e affettuosa l'ospitalità di Orlando e della sua famiglia: ci hanno anche coinvolto, con discrezione, nei festeggiamenti (con tanto di suonatori e torta) del compleanno della figlia. Una splendida esperienza!
Cadre , accueil, nourriture, chambre , hôtes : tout était parfait !
Orlando's was our outstanding homestay in Cuba! A boutique hostel a short walk from the main square. It has a lovely courtyard garden where you eat evening meal and breakfast. It's worth pre-booking a meal as it's pretty good and there is not much in town. Everybody is welcoming and the hostel features lovely colonial touches and interesting art. M.
De loin la plus belle maison, la meilleure chambre, la meilleure table et le personnel le plus avenant et attentionné de mon séjour à Cuba.
The Orlando's house was the best among houses that I had stayed during travelling Cuba. The house was beautiful and clean, the meals were delicious. And the staffs were very kind and perfect also. Machos gracias~
Das war für uns die beste Unterkunft während unserer Rundreise
A really elegant house in the colonial style. The rooms are large and comfortable.The meals were exceptional and were served in a courtyard amidst exotic plants and a sparkling fountain. We could stay only one night but would like to have stayed longer.
Lage und Ausstattung sind perfekt für die Erkundung der Stadt.
Eine der schönsten Unterkünfte, welche wir hatten.
Frühstück im idyllischen Innenhof mit Springbrunnen und Palmen.
The Hostel and the Owner and Staff were great. Highly recommend incl. the food. Good location and services.
We loved our stay in Santa Clara with Orlando. The house and court yard/ garden area is a little oasis offering a great location to all attractions in the city.
The staff was very friendly making us feeling most welcome during our stay. The food was amazing (lobster menu to be highly recommended), the bedroom and facilities we very clean so this casa is highly recommended and we are looking forward to staying here again during our next visit.
Kind regards, Monica + Helmut
