|Steps from the Plaza Vieja and just two blocks from the Plaza de San Francisco de Asis (two of Havana's most beautiful squares), the Hotel Los Frailes exudes contemplative serenity.
The staff pads along the hushed corridors in grey friar robes, their cheerful, expressive faces making it clear they do not belong to a religious order. Everything here radiates serenity, spirituality and devotion, but squarely within a touristic context.
The inner mezzanine gallery is bright and appealing, with lush hanging plants and attractive decorations. The original water cistern was rediscovered during the renovation, providing interesting historical detail; art objects from different eras provide context. The cozy seating areas are as inviting for reading as for sharing a cocktail, served by a merry, costumed friar.
Speaking of cocktails, during his visit, Pope Benedict XVI blessed the welcome cocktail traditionally offered by hotel management to newly-arrived guests.
When morning has broken, guests cross the street to restaurant "La Marina", where breakfast is served. Blue and white checkered tablecloths create a surprisingly Mediterranean setting after the serenity of Hotel Los Frailes.
