Quick Overview

The Comendador, unique for the intimacy and silence of its inner spaces, is the ideal spot for seclusion and meditation. Its architecture resembles the city’s older Spanish-Muslim houses, with a bent entrance on one of its sides. The house, in a privileged spot thanks to its proximity to Arms Square and San Francisco Square, receives the sea breeze blowing in from the port, visible from the balconies of its comfortable rooms. The Hostal Comendador has a tavern called Onda, named after a region in Spain, that evoques a countryside tavern and serves many different variations of the typical Spanish tapas and exquisite wines.

Maximum occupancy: 1 adult + 1 child


This comfortable little hotel, which shares some facilities with the adjoining Hostal Valencia, is housed in an eighteenth century building which belonged to the family of Don Pedro Regalado Pedroso y Zayas, who was a ‘Comendador de la Orden de Isabel la Católica’. The Hostal Valencia has become so popular that it is often frustratingly fully booked, but the Comendador is, if anything, even better, and certainly quieter, although it is slightly more expensive.

The rooms are very comfortable indeed, and unlike the Valencia they have air conditioning – indispensable in the summer months. Highly recommended, whether you choose a high-ceilinged room on the upper floor or a more cosy one on the mezzanine. The right-hand back room on the top floor has a charming view of the Diana, Princess of Wales Garden and the ships coming and going in the harbour. The tapas bar on the ground floor is excellent and is much frequented by European residents of Havana.

The Comendador was restored and is now run by the Office of the City Historian of Havana, so all its profits are reinvested in the restoration of the city’s historical centre.
