We are passionate about design. We love to combine elements and create objects that will define spaces that 'feel good'. At FAUNA, we have meticulously handpicked every piece, a result of several years of selecting, restoring and collecting. Good taste and warmth characterize our work and is what we have aimed to achieve at FAUNA. We have created a space where fine design and details abound all around. Mid Century furnishings, Art Deco treasures and other miscellaneous antiques coexist with contemporary art and several custom made pieces to form an eclectic mix that make this accommodation so unique.
We have updated the buildings facilities with some of the latest hardware. Carrara marble stairways and colored vitreaux coexist with super fast WiFi hot spots and Inverter Technology Air Conditioning, original plaster crown moldings and mosaic tiled floors are side to side with Smart TV Led Screens and digital keypads for opening doors. We supply ourselves with hot water through a bio mass wood pellet boiler located on the roof, the very best in energy efficiency. Every one of our rooms and lamps is lit by LED lights, ideal lighting for enhancing the hundred year old American pine wood floors.

what our guests have to say:
"FAUNA is gorgeous! The owners have amazing eyes for design and have created a beautiful space in the heart of Ciudad Vieja. The location is great and surrounded by delicious restaurants and parks, and is very walkable. The place itself was sparkling clean, safe (especially as a solo female traveler), and very relaxing. Soledad and Jeronimo are also lovely. Highly recommended. Would 100% come back :)"
