Café and Crafts
If you’re looking for a fantastic place in Port-au-Prince to unwind and also find some unique souvenirs? We recommend the Papillion Enterprise and the Clay Café, located just a short drive from our Port-au-Prince hotel. Visitors to the café can get fresh, delicious smoothies as well as lattes, food and big screen TVs usually playing sports matches. If that weren’t enough, there’s also Papillion Enterprise, a store section in the café where visitors can browse incredible handmade jewelry, dolls, ornaments and unique apparel as well. All these items are made from upcycled materials by local artisans, and Papillion Enterprises is meant to benefit and bolster the Haitian community by empowering workers and ensuring they are properly compensated for their work. So not only do you get a one-of-a-kind quality product, you’re also supporting local Haitian commerce. Celebrate with another smoothie!
Address: Rue Cassagnol Prolongee #14 | Delmas 75, Port-au-Prince
Located off the central town square it has good security and is the obvious expat place to stay. Nice garden breakfast area near a well received pool. Tranquil after the huddle and bustle outside. Rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable and the hot showers a blessing.
“PG from Florida”
I really enjoyed the family atmosphere at Leplaza hotel . Every single staff was very nice courteous, helpful , professional from the security guards to the receptionists , the staffs at the bar and restaurant . I had the greatest times of my life because everyone make feels at home especially at the reception and the bar- restaurant . I strongly recommend Leplaza Hotel . My rooms were nicely cleaned daily . I want to go back soon because they made me feel special . I want to thank all the staff about their warm welcome .
A very pleasant atmosphere and helpful staff greeted me upon arrival. Vladimir, who quickly handled my special requests, was especially helpful. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel for all travelers, whether on business or vacation.

“Great Haitian atmosphere”
We really enjoyed this property. The staff was very friendly and even went out of their way to accommodate us, by letting us check in early after flying all night. The atmosphere was very laid back just as most Haitians are.

Great experience. All the staff was very helpful and the rooms were very clean. Vladimir and James were very supportive and helpful as well. The front desk and restaurant was high class. We will definitely be back.
