Cobbled streets showing off the patina of time, dozens of pigeons flying around the colonial plazas, churches, statues, carriages with horses, parks and a thousand other details characterizing the oldest part of Havana, Habana Vieja.
In the air it breathes tradition, respect and sensitivity, superb tropical plants abound, the museums, the old Colonial houses used as cultural centers. The extensive work of restoration and conservation have been of such magnificence and efficiency that they only needed little imagination to believe in the past century.
In the heart of this wonderful micro world you are welcome nell'Hostal Convent of Santa Brigida Order of the Holy Savior of St. Bridget. The building was built in the first half of the eighteenth century, when Count Don Lorenzo Ruiz de Alarcon y Montalvo Montalvo will set up his residence. The building has undergone an excellent restoration ended with the inauguration attended by President Fidel Castro.
The Order of the Most Holy Saviour of Saint Bridget was founded in Sweden in 1344 from Santa Brigida. Today it has missions in much of the world.
The architectural complex of the Convent provides the dual function of the Convent and Hostal, first dormitories and other areas of Bridget and areas designated for guests: the rooms, restaurant, library, living rooms, patio and the Chapel.
The cleanliness and order are perfect, nothing missing and nothing goes too far. There is hardly a stay superior in its ease, comfort, peace and beauty.
The cuisine, prepared by Bridget seems to have emerged from celestial cuisine. Guests will have more attention as room service, air conditioned, telephone and cable TV.
All services offered are guaranteed only by the careful and loving sisters Bridget who speak perfect Italian, and who never fail to serve with a smile.
The revenue of the House of the Sisters of St. Brigid are employed by the Order in works of charity and assistance to sick, elderly and children.
