Check Availability
  • The 32-room Tejadillo was restored in 2000, and this establishment is situated in an old colonial house just one block north of Habana’s most well known plaza (Plaza de Catedral).

    This is a rather eccentric establishment, with a curious though not unpleasant layout and an even more peculiar but quite useful range of facilities. The warren-like floor plan is due to the hotel being composed of three restored Havana mansions dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The hotel’s two inner patios are oasis from the hustle and bustle of Old Havana.

    Overall it is a good value option and 17 of the 32 rooms have kitchenettes, though some rooms facing away from the street are windowless.

    Room description

    Spacious and with high ceilings, accommodations at the Tejadillo come in various shapes and are generally welcoming. A number of rooms may be converted into triples and about half come equipped with fully functional kitchenettes – ideal for traveling families. Rooms with windows have nice views of the cobbled streets below, and are preferable to the windowless quarters, which tend to be somewhat somberly-lit. The decor and furnishings are discrete and give the accommodations more of a comfortable and functional air than one of colonial opulence.

    Location:

    A half-block away from the Old Town’s Cathedral, the Tejadillo is a short walk away from the major squares and a good variety of museums and restaurants, including the renowned and lively Bodeguita del Medio. Spared the hectic pedestrian traffic of a street like Obispo (where other well-located hotels stand), this is as good a point of departure for an exploration of the Old Town as you can come across.
