Conde de Villanueva (Habana Vieja) Havana

                The Hostal or Hotel Conde de Villanueva is the former residence of Claudio Martínez de Pinillos y Cevallos, second Count of Villanueva and a Spanish merchant. The tastefully restored 18th century mansion is located in the heart of  Old Havana on Calle Mercaderes, within walking distance of everything you want see. The building was restored in 1998 and turned into a boutique hotel run by Habaguanex. The hotel has only 9 rooms (7 standared & 2 junior suites) and named after famous Cuban tobacco-growing regions catering to cigar smokers. The property even contains one of the best cigar shops in the city. The rooms are arranged around a courtyard, the leafy tropical space being home to a pair of peacocks. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and most have a balcony overlooking the street. There's even a lovely restaurant downstairs. However, the big attraction for many cigar enthusiasts, myself included, is the cigar shop on the 2nd level.
