Stayed at Hotel Los Frailes during our visit to Cuba last year, a few days at the start of our 2 week holiday, and a couple of days at the end. The hotel is in a great location in Old Havana. Your taxi can only...More
We had walked past this hotel a few times, when we one day decided to visit for some drink or coffee.
It was interesting to have a look and a rest inside near the bar area.
The information we did get about the rooms without...More
It's worth wandering in through the bar of this artful hotel to see the beautiful green courtyard and take a peek at the exposed section of the old water storage tank below ground. There are number of life size bronze depictions of hooded friar standing...More
We were dropped off by shuttle in a deserted square late at night. Found the hotel due to the metal monk outside. The room was without windows, as befitting an old monastery, but there was plenty of lighting. The room and bathroom were large with...More
Having researched the hotel in advance, the main reason we booked the hotel is its vicinity to the old town/squares and the hotels character. Fully aware in advance that the room had no windows and this is due to it being terraced between other buildings....More

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... More
