Fodor's Review

Joaquín Gómez, a wealthy merchant, built this mansion in 1836, and it functioned as a hotel from 1885 to 1950. In 1999 it reopened after a complete restoration. Today a light, elegant reception area leads onto a colonial archway that gives the hotel an old-world atmosphere, making it one of the top choices in Habana Vieja. Its simple room design, lovely architecture, and quality fixtures give it an edge over many of the district hotel picks, although some rooms are far superior to others, and some are in need of a lick of paint. Rooms facing the colorful Calle Obispo are your best bet. Notice the contemporary stained-glass ceiling on the upper floor as it spreads a rainbow of color onto the elegant marble stairway. The hotel also has a lively piano bar featuring live Cuban music daily from 7 pm to 1 am.
