About Hotel Conde de Villanueva
The Hotel Conde de Villanueva offers nine rooms behind its merry red and green façade in the heart of Havana's historic district.
Look for a pair of giant riveted doors along quiet Mercaderes Street to locate theHotel Conde de Villanueva, where a cool hall, lobby and reception area await inside. Don’t be surprised if you’re greeted by a colorful king peacock strutting his stuff in the leafy central patio, where tropical plants keep things shady.
Up the stairs, with their characteristic green wooden banisters, is where the hotel’s secret is kept: here on the mezzanine, you’ll find one of the most prominent cigar shops (Casa Del Habano) in town. A comfortably pleasant lounge invites you to smoke an artisanal cigar, manufactured by the highly-skilled on-site "torcedor" (cigar roller). Whether you’re a long-time enthusiast after a good smoke or just looking for one of the world’s best cigars as a souvenir, this shop, with their knowledgeable staff, can help.
Nestled between two of Old Havana’s iconic squares, Hotel Conde de Villanueva offers intimacy, comfort, and coziness to tobacco aficionados as well as nonsmokers.
