This hotel has 158 rooms, including 140 doubles, 16 triples and two suites, all with modern amenities.

Owned by the Cuban hotel chain Gran Caribe and managed by the Spanish company Roc Hotels, it is currently a privileged place for insular tourism.

The stage stands out for its links with Cuban art and culture, as a host for relevant international events and festivals, both ballet and other modalities, as well as being close to Casa de las Américas and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. .

Even, the TripAdvisor network considers it well located, with the number nine in terms of that parameter among 89 hotels in Havana, and Holiday Check has 84 percent cumulative satisfaction, among other websites of this type and fame, that highlight it .

In terms of their markets, hotel managers mention Germany, and countries of South America are on the rise.
