About us

Residencia Santa Clara bar


Around 2015 we decided, as a family, that we wanted to build a small boutique hotel that was artistic and yet warm and personal. We also wanted to use as much recycling material as possible. The Casotel concept was born: a mixture of a casa particular and a hotel, the best of the worlds.

After a lot of paperwork and frustrations, we managed to open in 2019 and then had to close again due to Covid 😥. Despite the short time trading, we have been consistently amongst the best hotels in Havana and for that we specially thank our wonderful staff. Come to discover “your” Cuba with us 🫵


Residencia Santa Clara

We have to thank our rapid growth and solid position amongst the top properties in Cuba to the values we hold dearly.

More than Guests

Our guests are more than just clients, and we make them feel special every time we can.

Value for Money

We don’t overpromise and everyone can rely on honest and clear advice of what to expect.

Quirky yet Practical

Whilst we are proud to be different, we don’t have unusual designs/solutions for the sake of it.


Residencia Santa Clara is the only hotel we have but we have the ambition to build more following the same principles of recycling, quirky yet practical, use of local artists to infused the property with an authentic local connection and, above all, a friendly and distinguished service. Our vision is to have the most coveted boutique hotel chain in Cuba.
