Los Frailes is a small and attractive hotel located in a narrow, busy street of the old city, only a few steps away from the "Plaza Vieja" (Old Square) and "Plaza San Francisco de Asís" (St. Francis of Assisi's square) .

The building dates from the 18th century, and was once the mansion of Marquis Pedro Pablo Duquesne, Captain of the French Navy, at the time visited by "la crème de la crème" of Havana's society.

After a major restoration, it reopened as a hotel, decorated with a religious theme.

The employees are dressed in the habits of friars, the lamps and furnishings recall those of a medieval abbey, and two attractive copper statues of monks welcome guests at the entrance and the lobby, the latter is always very lively as it is constantly visited by groups of tourists, their guides, as well as passersby curious about the unique attraction of the place.

Its 22 rooms are set around a pleasant inner patio , with a well, a fountain, and greenery cascading from the top. The rooms feature high ceilings, spacious bathrooms and the walls are treated to convey a sense of age.

Before making a reservation it might be useful to know that some of the Standard rooms have no windows, therefore they do not receive natural light, something that some guests do not like, while others appreciate the ambiance of the place and the advantage of its excellent location to visit the Historic Center of the city.

If natural light is truly important to you, we recommend choosing one of the Junior Suites which offer balconies overlooking the street, although in addition to clarity there will be some noise: music from the neighboring Café Taberna "Amigos del Benny", voices and noises from the hustle and bustle of the city, but this is definitely part of the charm of being in Havana!

The hotel bar is off to one side of the lobby and the restaurant "La Marina", serves breakfast every morning to all hotel guests.

We recommend it for: its perfect location, in the heart of the old city with most places within walking distance, and its undeniable character, charm and peaceful atmosphere.
