Hotel El Comendador Old Havana Reviews A great 3 star Hotel in Old Havana, Views of the cruise port and harbor entrance, central old town location.

Hotel Comendador in Old Havana is a beautiful colonial 18th century mansion turned into a comfortable little hotel, which shares some facilities with the adjoining Hostal Valencia. The property belonged to the family of Don Pedro Regalado Pedroso y Zayas, who was a ‘Comendador de la Orden de Isabel la Católica’ and as such has become his namesake for the hotels name.

 Hotel El Comendador havana rooms

The Hotel Comendador rooms are very comfortable with centralized air conditioning and tastefully decorated.

The hotels architecture resembles the city’s colonial Muslim style Spanish from the Seville region of Spain. The hotel is located in a privileged area thanks to its proximity to Arms Square and San Francisco Square and the constant sea breeze channeled in from the Havana Cruise port which is also visible from the balconies of its comfy hotel rooms.


The Hotel Comendador is managed by the Habaguanex Hotel Group and has a tavern called Onda, named after the region in Spain that evokes a countryside tavern and serves many different variations of the typical Spanish tapas and has an extensive cellar of international wines. The Comendador is highly recommended, whether you get a high-ceilinged room on the upper floor or a cozier one on the mezzanine level of the hotel. Some rooms on the top floor have picturesque views of the Diana, Princess of Wales Garden and also the cruise & merchant ships entering the harbor of Havana.

The mezzanine rooms, although a little less spacious in terms of ceiling height, are also delightful with their decorative iron beds and tiny windows within larger shutters white painted opening to the street below, and similarly decorated washrooms. Many clients favor the mezzanine rooms as being cozier and more welcoming than the grander option upstairs.

The Hotel Comendador is one of those little gems that has yet to be highly publicized but we highly recommend for a peaceful stay in old Havana, right in the very nerve center of the Old quarter of Havana. The closest rent a car office in Old Havana to this Hotel is situated at the Hotel Parque Central
