La Reserva is one of our favorite accommodations in Cuba. Located in the vibrant Vedado neighborhood (like the Brooklyn of Havana), the recently renovated colonial mansion contains traces of the city’s cosmopolitan energy from the mid-20th century. That being said, it’s tucked away on an unassuming residential street, offering a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The entryway is tastefully decorated with contemporary Cuban art, reminiscent of a 1920s Parisian salon. The mansion even features a contemporary gallery space. Cross the garden to the patio, where you can dine in the mornings or retreat to in the afternoon with a good book. Choose from five private rooms or rent the entire home for a truly exclusive experience. Each room features modern ensuite bathrooms and expansive king size beds. Splurge for the balcony area with private seating.
