This is one of the last jewels rehabilitated by Habaguanex, a company run by the Office of the City Historian of Havana. Named after the native chief who ruled over the territory of Havana at the time of the arrival of Spanish galleons, Habaguanex restores iconic landmarks of Cuban history to accommodate tourists, and then puts the profits back into other restoration projects in the old city centre.
Many of the original elements of the three-storey historical building remain, including stone arches and beautiful stained glass with red and blue accents. These are cleverly juxtaposed with ultra-contemporary furniture and lighting.
The 12 lovely rooms are very comfortable and fully loaded with all the mod-cons, including Wi-Fi and air conditioning.
