Casa Vitrales occupies a republican building that had its origins in the colonial era. Its restorations have preserved the charms of bygone times in an architecture that evokes the spirit of a Havana colonial house: set around a central patio with great openings and water tiles of varied designs. In this unique environment each place acquires its own personality with contrasting elements of design which add dashes of color and modernism.
Combining the elegance of a luxury accommodation and the familiarity of a private estate, Casa Vitrales offers 6 superior suites and 3 standard suites, with a decoration that is set towards rest and comfort. All of them possess natural lighting and air conditioning. You will also have to your disposal a Chill Out terrace in which you can organize events or enjoy by yourself the magical experience of living in Havana.￼
The terrace is an open space ideal for resting. It is a modern space where the vegetation, the easy chairs and a Balinese bed recreate the simple aesthetics of a Chill Out environment. Because of its privileged vantage point location it possesses views of the Bacardi building, the Museum of the Revolution, the mythical Saint Angel church and of the coming and going of the ships from the bay. It is possible to organize events, enjoy aperitifs, dinners and drinks in this space.
The second floor, evokes the spirit of colonial Havana architecture through elements that have been inherited from previous epochs. It is composed of open spaces of great height where the balconies with long white linen curtains, water tiles that form shapes on the floors, and stained-glass arches on doors and windows with colorful designs set the decoration. The furniture distinguishes the elegance of the wood with designer armchairs and rustic Ácana (hard reddish-brown wood used for fine furniture in Cuba and South America) benches. Great paintings of contemporary Cuban painters are place all around the house, creating a light and organized atmosphere. All the rooms possess a cozy interior bathroom and air conditioning. ￼
The third floor is a sophisticated and contemporary environment, it uses decorative elements of contrasting colors, pure lines and the predominance of the color white. Here the rooms are of a Boutique class.￼
