Casa Azul Hotel Monumento Historico
Painted in sweet sky-blue shades and garnished with white trimming, this 19th-century home opens onto interiors as delectable as its charming facade. Inside, a colonnaded patio wraps around a courtyard garden, while the elegant furnishings and decor are a step back into the past. There are plenty of gilded mirrors and oil paintings, candelabras and ornate lamps, wooden antiques, and even a rocking chair or two. It’s an intimate place with just eight guest rooms, which don’t shy away from old-world refinement and are dotted with gilt, chandelier glitter, and gleaming patterned tile floors. Regal touches include lavishly large bathrooms with both whirlpool tubs and walk-in showers, plus high-end toiletries and well-stocked minibars. The hotel has a small outdoor pool that makes for a refreshing dip in the heat, as well as a restaurant serving international fare. And guests are just a block away from the prestigious Paseo de Montejo, which offers other dining options and attractions.
