Hotels in Remedios, Villa Clara
Hotel Encanto Mascotte
This little hotel is housed in an 18th-century building overlooking the main square. It was here, on February 1, 1899, that General M?ximo G?mez and Robert P. Porter (the U.S. Commissioner) met to negotiate the terms of the dissolution of Cuban forces at the end of the Spanish-American War. Now run by Cubanac?n, the hotel is popular with tour groups and individuals and makes a splendid base for exploring Remedios and beyond.
Recently restored, it evokes a simple colonial charm, beginning with the downstairs restaurant ? the best in town, despite its homely furnishings. Upstairs, the 14 rooms have lofty ceilings and satellite TVs, and those facing the plaza feature shuttered doors that open to wrought-iron balconies with views. The original floors have been replaced with modern ceramic tiles. And bathrooms feature modern fixtures, including shower-tubs.
