Saskia and Will are here to help give you the inside track.

The hotel's beautiful baroque façade blends perfectly with the minimalist yet elegant furnishings and interiors of the hotels., with walls decorated in artwork from renowned Cuban artists. There are 27 guest rooms, equipped with all modern amenities. Rooms are enhanced by indirect lighting and unconventional colours and combinations. The suites are slightly bigger with a lounge and, our favourite, a Jacuzzi.

The hotel has an a-la-carte restaurant which serves delicious Cuban specialities, as well as international dishes. The bar and lounge area is a great spot for a post dinner cocktail, but is also available during the day for light snacks and beverages. Breakfast fans will not be disappointed with a wide variety of options to chose from to kick start your day.

There is a roof top terrace situated on the sixth floor of the hotel, inviting visitors to use a telescope to observe old Havana and experiencing the atmosphere of being in the middle of the old city. It is also a little bit romantic up there, if you don't mind us saying.

Don't miss a stroll through old Havana while being there, home to the Convent of San Francisco de Asis, which hosts Havana's best concert halls and some of the top choirs and chamber music concerts in the city. Visit the Basilica, the popular Lions Fountain and the bronze statue of El Caballero de Paris, one of Havana's most cherished personages. Pocket parks, trendy restaurants, fabulous shops and nightlife are located just steps away from the hotel.
