An authentic colonial guesthouse can be found after crossing the magnificent large doors of the Hotel del Tejadillo. The house is decorated with paintings that show the reigning eclecticism in Havana, with unique pieces of pottery and with travelers that have become copper statues. Its spacious and well-illuminated lobby resembles the captivating living room of the Havana mansions from the 18th and 19th centuries, leading to a breakfast room, The Cathedral, named after the nearby church and Cathedral square. The hotel also has two inner courtyards: La Arcada and La Yagruma. The former has an evocative mural of the facade arches and galleries of the old city. The latter is reserved for moments of peace and contemplation. Both inner courtyards are a sign of good taste and the wish of taking you in as a family would do.
