Hotel Conde de Villanueva, a four-star hotel, is located in the historical center of Havana City in Cuba and it’s a tastefully restored 18th-century mansion that it has a rustic colonial charm and intimate feel to it that makes it just as ideal for sightseers and couples seeking a relaxed, quiet atmosphere.
The hotel features one of the best and most respected cigar shops in town, La Casa del Habano, which rents out private humidors allowing regular clients always to have access to their own private reserve. The nine rooms of Hotel Conde de Villanueva are named after tobacco plantations and the paintings and photography that can be admired throughout the hotel have tobacco as their predominant theme. Guests just love to observe the "torcedor" (person that rolls the cigars) at work. He has set up shop in the hall of the hotel and very much enjoys talking with you about his special skills. Naturally you can purchase one of his freshly made cigars.
Located in what used to be the former 18th-century mansion of Claudio Martínez de Pinillos, the Villanueva Count, this hotel has been designed for travelers who are looking for a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, especially cigar aficionados who will agree that Hotel Conde de Villanueva is a cigar lover’s paradise.
