Penthouse Plaza Vieja
A lush hideaway in central Havana
- Two en-suite rooms
- Rooftop terrace
Overlooking one of Havana’s most elegant and lively squares is Penthouse Plaza Vieja, a private house that despite its location, feels like a hidden gem.
There are just two en-suite rooms, which although modern in their design have maintained plenty of character with original features, ornate ceramics and paintings.
One of the highlights is the roof terrace, bursting with lush green plants and colourful flowers. Breakfast is enjoyed under the shade of this canopy while further back guests can enjoy views out across the bustling Plaza Vieja.
Penthouse Plaza Vieja is located in the iconic Escorial Building, the smell of coffee drifting up from the roastery below as you wind your way up the staircase to the top floor. When you want to explore, the old city with its colonial architecture and plethora of cafes is right on your doorstep, but when you simply want to relax then there are few better places to do it than on the rooftop in the company of your accommodating hosts.
