Colonial loft stands on the top floor of a Neo-Classical building at the heart of hip artistic Vedado, within steps of trendy restaurants, entertainment nightspots, Hotel Nacional, Malecón, and 5-min drive to Old Havana. Designed around a contemporary interpretation of traditional colonial architecture, the 5m-high open space features a mezzanine level stretching from one side of the apt to the other, and two terraces with comfortable dining/lounging areas with breathtaking views of Havana.
Loft is situated on a quiet tree-lined street in a residential area of Vedado (the downtown sector of Havana and one the city’s most vibrant and beautiful neighbourhoods).
The apt has 3 bedrooms where we can accommodate up to 6 guests. The apartment itself is a symbol of the very place you are visiting: the original Carrara marble floors and wood doors are there, but all the bathrooms are beautifully updated and modern. Each bedroom has plenty of space, bedside tables and lamps, and doors to close and lock. The beds are welcoming and comfortable (2 kings, 1 queen), linens and towels are all provided, and each room has its own AC. With a modern spacious kitchen fully equipped with everything you need, two very spacious terraces for smoking cigars under the night sky, and lots of tropical house plants.
When you arrive at the house, you will find people whose main concern is to make you feel at home. We will greet you at the curb, help you carry bags, greet you with mojitos and Cuban appetizers. We will set you up with a local phone should you have emergencies, and (if you wish) be there in the morning before you even wake up to make coffee and breakfast.
The apartment is completely private for the use of registered guests only. You will be asked to provide identification (passport) on arrival and sign in. These steps are in keeping with Cuban government policy. You will have your own keys to the apartment for your stay. These keys must be returned at check-out.
The building is not wheelchair accessible and there’s no elevator. The apartment itself is on the first floor, which means a ground-floor entrance level and then 1 high-ceilinged floor above it. However, the staircase has a good railing, the stairs are solid, with a medium riser height. We are happy to help you with your luggage when you arrive and leave the villa.
Check-in and check-out: the manager of the property will meet you to check you in and get you settled, and then again when you check out at the end of your stay, so we’ll need your arrival and departure information. We ask that you give us the maximum notice possible if there’s a change in your scheduled arrival or departure (e.g., a flight change). Also, please cooperate with the set check-out times so we can prepare for the next guests. However, if you would like some flexibility in check-in or check-out times, please make any such request in advance and we’ll do our best to accommodate everyone (outgoing and incoming guests).
Interaction with guests
Upon arrival you will be welcomed with Cuban cocktails and appetizers. We will give you the keys of the apartment, our own curated guide of Havana, and a walk through of your new home. We very much enjoy interacting with our guests, helping them get the most out of our city. But if you’d rather that we didn’t exist, we understand. That’s up to you!
Open your eyes and wake up with the fresh clean sea breeze from Malecon surrounded by the colonial spirit of the island, smell the fresh Cuban coffee and warm milk, “café con leche” as Cubans families call it, with delicious Cuban sugar. Enjoy tropical fruits and homemade juices. After that, walk along the Malecon just two blocks from the house and enjoy Havana!
