Hotel El Comendador


Hotel El Comendador Considered Exceptional for its intimacy and internal spaces, COMENDADOR is the perfect accommodation for retirement and meditation.
Its furniture, with simple renaissance elements and some refinished original pieces from our heritage combine to satisfy the most demanding clients ideas about modern comfort.

The former palace, like many of the oldest mansions of San Cristobal de la Habana, has a strong Moorish influence, with the main entrance to one corner.

Close to one of the most important squares in Havana, ( Plaza de San Francisco ) it is caressed by the sea breezes coming from the nearby harbor and entranceway to the Bay of Havana, which can be appreciated from the balconies of its magnificent rooms.

The Inn also boasts a typical 18th century tavern with the name of “Onda”, a region of Valencia Spain. On a rustic bar, different Spanish “Tapas” are offered along with exotic wines of the region.

Old woods from the original mansion were preserved during the restoration, old barrels and pictures from that region decorate the tavern and its outdoor cafe.

This property was originally built in the early 18th century by Don Pedro Regalado Pedroso y Zagas and was refurbished in the 19th century when a mezzanine was added which distinguishes this mansion form others in the area.
