Hotel Tejadillo is very centrally placed in the very heart of old Havana facing the Cathedral Square, just around the corner from the famous Bodeguita del Medio and 10 minute walk away from the Malecón.
The Tejadillo also has its very own history as it is formed by 3 houses built back in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is decorated with paintings that show the reigning eclecticism in Havana, with unique pieces of pottery and with travellers that have become copper statues.
Its spacious and well-illuminated lobby resembles the captivating living room of the Havana mansions from the 18th and 19th centuries, leading to a breakfast room, The Cathedral, named after the nearby church and Cathedral square.
Rooms (32 in total) are clean and spacious. No luxuries but featuring modern bathrooms. Many of them don't have windows since they face onto an interior courtyard (where breakfast is served every morning); but if you are lucky enough to have one with a balcony you will enjoy the street views.
The hotel has two inner courtyards: La Arcada and La Yagruma. The first has an evocative mural of the arches and galleries of the old city. The second is reserved for moments of peace and contemplation. There is also a bar that opens onto the side streets.
All in all a charming, colonial style hotel in a perfect location to explore Old Havana, its streets and museums.
