Check Out This One Of A Kind Cuban Influenced Hotel In Tampa Bay

I’m so excited to share another amazing staycation destination with you! Hotel Haya is located in Historic Ybor City and inspired by one of Ybor’s founding fathers, Ignacio Haya.

When you step foot into the hotel you immediately notice how it embodies Ybor City’s eclectic flair while incorporating Mediterranean-influence throughout the building design and decor.

Hotel Haya  features a pool in the courtyard where the bar serves cocktails and can host intimate concerts for guests to enjoy. The property also has over 5,000 square feet of readily available meetings and events space.

Hotel Haya has more than a hundred guest rooms available for booking and remains unique in so many ways with its homage to Cuban culture from the food to the design.

Whether you’re a local looking for a special staycation spot or a visitor to town eager  to learn more about our city’s rich history and the diverse cultural influences embedded here, Hotel Haya is the place to book!

For point of reference, Hotel Haya is located on 1412 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL 33605.

If you’re arriving to town through Tampa International Airport (TPA) the hotel is a quick 16 minute drive away. The Cruise Line Terminal is about 0.9 miles from Hotel Haya and Amalie Arena is about 1.7 miles away.


During my stay I enjoyed the two queen bedroom, with a max capacity of four people.

In the two bed queen guest room , you’ll enjoy their 300 cotton thread count sheets, ultra comfy duvet comforters, 49′ flat screen TV, blackout draperies, and bedside wireless charging pads for your tech devices.

Hotel accommodations provide a 24-hour front desk and room service for guests.

I love the matte black finish throughout the bathroom, the elegant branded bath robes awaiting in the closet, and the views of beautiful Ybor from the balcony are immaculate!

Feeling hungry? Satisfy your cravings at Hotel Haya’s all-day, Cuban-inspired café !

Whether you’re wanting to sit down and enjoy a bite to eat or  in a rush and need to grab and go Café Quiquiriqui is a great spot!

Here you can sip on Cuban coffee, enjoy authentic café con leche or refreshing bottled juice that’s locally sourced.

When I visit I love to order their empanadas to snack on!

Can’t forget to mention that they have cigars on hand for you too!

The hotel has a plethora of dining and drinking options with 152-seat ground-floor restaurant called Flor Fina (menu) , 42 cafe that I mentioned in detail above and the Pool Bar (menu).

Cant forget their stunning walk in lobby where they have hand sanitizer and masks available to guests and visitors in need. Also their spacious  interior courtyard near the swimming pool and lounge area is great for hosting a meet up with friends or an intimate event.



I also love how the hotel tapped local talent for the artwork you see on the walls, fixtures that you see on the ceiling and so much more!

The photo below is actually an original that the hotel was able to preserve and place on display for guests and visitors to see!

So what do you think?! Would you plan a stay at Hotel Haya or come by to visit their Cafe or amazing restaurant or bar?
