On a narrow street of Old Havana, the Los Frailes hotel stands just a few steps away from the majestic convent of Saint Francis of Assisi and the busy Old Square. The former mansion of the fourth Marquis and Captain of the French Navy, Don Pedro Claudio Duquesne, once visited by the finest nobility, ecclesiastical dignitaries, military authorities, renowned artists, the best of Cuban and foreign society, has become today the perfect place to enjoy the sound of silence and meditation in the pleasant afternoons of the old city. Right at the entrance, a copper sculpture of a monk welcomes visitors, inviting them to an imaginary trip to a medieval abbey. Its lobby bar, comfortable rooms -only the 4 mini-suites have balconies- and quiet patio, decorated with outstanding works of art, its enigmatic and intimate atmosphere combined with the suggestive sound of a water fountain, invite you to contemplation and meditation in this exclusive inn. Havana's "José Martí" International Airport, 12.4 miles.
“Just do not book this hotel! ”
Why? Most rooms do not have a window! Staff is NOT friendly, no matter how hard you try to get a friendly word out of them. The breakfast served is really not enough for a mouse, quality is horrible of food and drinks. We tried to cancelled our pre-paid nights after 2 nights trying to adjust to this hotel, but canceling is out of the question there. Roommaid however was kind after generous tip. please be smart and do not pay over 200$ per room but go to a good recommended casa particular for much less and get way more quality and kindness.
