Madero Bed and Breakfast

Hostel Madero

Madero Bed and Breakfast is a smart guesthouse in the historic centre of Havana. 

Madero Bed and Breakfast is one of a new generation of small Cuban guesthouses and hotels which are considerably more upmarket, contemporary and stylish than the traditional homestay. This popular and well regarded choice is in the very heart of historic Havana just a quick stroll from the city's principal squares.  The six guest rooms and one larger suite with balcony are distributed over three floors and all tastefully furnished in modern muted colours and pale wood, all with up-to-date private bathrooms.

You are welcome to make use of a spacious living room and kitchen on the ground floor and there is a rooftop terrace with comfy armchairs. (The property is also known as Hostal Madero, but it is certainly much better appointed than what we would normally expect from a hostel!), with excellent service from the eager-to-please, mostly English-speaking staff.

Our Expert's Opinion

Blurring the lines between homestay and boutique hotel this is a wonderful example of how to do it right, the location is second to none with access to Havana's grand historic centre just seconds away, I'd suggest getting out and exploring the increasing number of great bars and restaurants on your doorstep.
