Hotel Los Frailes

Traveler (343)
Panoramas (21)
Dining (7)


As if it was a space for contemplation, the Hotel Los Frailes translates the visitor to the ambience of an abbey of the medieval era. Monks represented in copper sculptures, religious altarpieces, as well as other details, comprise the decoration of this site convenient for resting. A lobby bar with art-works and stained-glass windows and a peaceful inner patio with a fountain and a well, turns the hotel into one of the most beautiful of the Centro Histórico. The hotel employees, dressed in customs inspired in the clothes of the Franciscan monks, invite the guests to a singular ceremony.

We made reservations in this hotel based on recommendations in the "Top ten" Cuba travel guide. Upon arrival in early November, we registered in the evening and spent a very bad night. The A/C was noisy and the following morning there was no hot water!

You can tell this hotel must have been lovely once. My friend said she'd stayed there about 12 years before and it looked as though they'd done nothing to it since. Such a let down as it's quite expensive for Havana but we wanted to treat ourselves for a few days. The rooms

we paid a 'fair' bit for the room via the online system. Accepting the fact that this is how things go in Cuba. Upon arrival the check in was smooth. The doorman however tried to tout tickets and dinners to us without end. One of the down sides of Cuba, as we have had many such

They can really prepare a good mojito, but looks like to me that the main reason for them is to make you drunk and cheat you. They tried to cheat us for 50 CUC without any excuse. “MONKS!!!” Be careful, nice place, but ... There a lot of another places without this behavior and

The staff were dresssed as monks plus there were metal 'statues' of monks which gave the place a touch of character. Only came in to try their version of the mojito. Bit pricey at 4 CUCs but strong and a good flavour.

Hello, If you go to the nearby Plaza Vieja, there are lots of streets going off it, with many restaurants; most with live music. Many eateries have menus with prices outside. We ate in one restaurant for around 8-10 Pesos. The next day we ate next door to that one and had half a chicken, rice and sweet potato fries for 6 Pesos and a large burger and fries for 4 Pesos. Just wander about and you will find plenty of good cheap eateries. As regards changing money, as luck would have it, the restaurant where you go for breakfast from the hotel is about 20 seconds away, and across from there is a bank, which is where we changed our money. You have to sit and wait until the guard ushers you to a teller. And there is a shop next door to the Hotel Los Frailes Hotel selling bottled water, and also cans of Heineken for 1.20. Have a great time

We booked our whole Cuba through The Holiday Place - 5 days in Havana and 10 in Varadero - so not sure how much this hotel cost, but the holiday overall was very good value (c £1300) and this hotel was one of their options. Hope this helps.

I would think so. The hotel concierges/receptionists all get a commission and your tip so are usually keen to book things up for you. Enjoy your trip.
