Hotel Nacional de Cuba

Hotel Nacional de Cuba 5str

Distinguished and stylish, the Nacional is as remarkable for its history as for the superb location that it enjoys.

The eight-storey Spanish-style property rises on a hill-top overlooking the Malecon, affording guests and visitors panoramic vistas of both the Old Town and Vedado district. Once a site of pirate landings and a Cuban stronghold during Havana’s one-year siege by the British, the majestic gardens that surround the hotel are a formidable and welcoming spot after a day of sightseeing and as relaxing a place to enjoy a drink and a sweeping view of the Caribbean as you can hope for.

A well-dressed porter welcomes guests at the entrance of a long, soaring lobby, where the Hotel’s luxurious, aristocratic ambience immediately strikes the eye (the eclectic combination of Moorish tile-work, Elizabethan chandeliers and ceiling beams, recalling a Medieval church, may help explain why world-renowned Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier once referred to the edifice as an “enchanted castle”). The lobby is often teeming with visitors and tour groups; coupled with the ever-busy bar just beyond the doors that open onto the gardens, this gives one the feeling of a hotel that never sleeps.

Equipped with six bars and a well-known cabaret, the hotel is also a setting for live son performances, aquatic spectacles and even sporadic fashion shows, not to mention the venue for the Havana International Film Festival in December, when one is likely to spot renowned figures of Cuba’s culture and art scene and even the occasional Hollywood star. The Nacional, however, is not aimed exclusively at night-owls or entertainment-seekers: a well-equipped business centre, currency exchange locale, nine meeting rooms (including the spacious Taganana Hall, used for press conferences) offering interpretation services, and an entire executive floor with express check-in and cyber-café accom?date the business traveler and convention or congress participant alike.

Boasting a guest-list crammed with such personalities as Johny Weissmuller and Buster Keaton and illustrious figures like Winston Churchill and the Duke of Windsor, the Hotel Nacional’s restored and welcoming accommodations are a window to a bygone era of class and distinction.

Barcelo Habana Ciudad

Barcelo Habana Ciudad  5str

Barcelo Havana Ciudad is a 5 star hotel casually sophisticated and comfortably appointed for business or leisure, it also benefits from the striking colors used as part of decoration and that are typically used from Barceló’s Hotels styles.

Located at the heart of Havana’s financial district and just overlooking the famous 5th Avenue this contemporary hotel offers a selection of dining-bar options including the “El Olivo” international Restaurant, “Don Quijote” Spanish cuisine restaurant, Snack Bar “Las Tapas”, Cafeteria “Barcelo Habana” and Lobby Bar “Daiquiri”

Melia Cohiba

Melia Cohiba  5str

Offering 462 magnificent rooms with super views past Havana’s seafront avenue, the 22-story Meliá Cohiba stands at a privileged intersection in Vedado’s commercial and leisure area.

Its four Regal Service floors are ideal for businesspeople and afford excellent facilities equipped with cutting edge technology.

The hotel’s renowned Habana Café is an exceptional restaurant whose memorabilia evokes the Havana of the 1950s. 1950's.

Saratoga Boutique

Saratoga Boutique  5str

A relatively new addition to Old Havana’s hotel offer, the Saratoga is a stylishly luxurious establishment which combines charming early century elements with inventive and tasteful modern décor and facilities. Though the interiors were completely rebuilt and refashioned (3 floors were added to the property’s original 4), the eclectic, chiefly neo-classical façade has been restored and recalls the days, in the 1930s, when artists and other cultural luminaries gathered there and the spot was enlivened by the Anacaona all-girl orchestra.

The hotel’s immediate surroundings are, admittedly, somewhat noisy and not aesthetically pleasing. This minor shortcoming, however, is more than compensated for by the Saratoga’s privileged location: at the south end of Prado, the hotel is across the street from the Capitolio and Gran Teatro and a relatively short walk away from the seawall and Obispo, one of the main access points of the colonial heart of the Old Town.

Inside, guests are greeted by a daring and sophisticated interior design that sets a new tone for hotels in the area, evoking the kind of cosmopolitan spirit one might come across in New York or another big city. The mezzanine bar, under an atrium skylight, epitomizes this feeling with its mixed furnishings, tall palms and large mural showing a Cuban landscape. Just as inviting are the Anacaona Restaurant, its intimate adjoining bar and the rooftop restaurant, which offers good views of Prado and places of interest such as the Partagas cigar factory.

The prevailing mood of elegance and tasteful design carries to the hotel’s accommodations, which combine classical elements with modern facilities (such as Internet access).

Other attractive features include outdoor parking, wi-fi in communal areas, a highly modern gym, massage services, a well-equipped business centre and two meeting rooms.

One of Havana’s classiest (and most expensive) hotels, the Saratoga is probably not ideal for those seeking a discretely colonial or authentically Cuban setting. Visitors who can afford this establishment and seek intimacy and modern-day comforts will, however, be hard pressed to find a better option.

NH Parque Central

NH Parque Central  5str

NH Parque Central Torre, new section, of the prestigious NH Parque Central, it is also a 5-star luxury Hotel, that will be opened in the coming weeks. Both sections complement each other and are connected via a tunnel.
The magnificence Complex NH Parque Central and Torre combines the elegance of the Spanish colonial style with the ultimate modern services and facilities. They are surrounded by numerous famous buildings, as the Capitol the Theater Garcia Lorca, famous for its excellent presentations of ballet. Within walk minutes, are the Cathedral of Havana, the Arms Square, shops, museums and other complementary services.
The classic Greek style swimming pool, and the terrace with bar/restaurant located on the top floor of the NH Parque Central, have splendid views of Havana, shared by the majority of meeting rooms and Hotel rooms, including exceptional views of Parque Central and Paseo del Prado.

Santa Isabel Boutique

Santa Isabel Boutique  5str

Palatial in magnitude and elegance, the Santa Isabel enjoys what is perhaps the most privileged location of all hotels in the area: facing the charming Plaza de Armas (a cobbled square flanked by colonial-era constructions, museums and restaurants), the long, three-storey property is literally in the very heart of Old Havana, close to the sightseeing beat’s most interesting sites.

The colonial grandeur of the façade is well matched by the large, air-conditioned lobby, where crystal chandeliers, ostentatious upholstered sofas, and period furnishings take one back to the time the property was owned by the Count of Santovenia, a member of 19th century Cuban nobility. A less formal and more relaxed atmosphere is found in the shady Spanish-styled courtyard which adjoins the lobby, where one can enjoy a fine cocktail or quiet read at one of the tables surrounding the central fountain.

Off the lobby is the Condado, a posh restaurant appointed with antique furnishings that extends the general mood of elegance found elsewhere in the hotel.

In addition to affording a spectacular view of the Plaza, the hotel rooftop is a place of some historical significance: in 1830, the Count arranged for a hot-air balloon, carrying a flower-decked basket, to lift off from here, in honour of princess María Isabel Luisa. Though some efforts have reportedly been devoted to re-staging this spectacle as part of the hotel’s entertainment offer, guests will have to content themselves with the magnificent vista, refreshing breezes and recorded music for the time being.

Accommodations at the Santa Isabel have the colonial charm found at several other Habaguanex hotels. The long terrace overlooking the Plaza, shared by west-facing rooms, is doubtless one of their most attractive features. The hotel suite has also known a number of famous guests, including ex-US President Jimmy Carter, Jack Nicholson and Sting.

The Santa Isabel is the kind of formal, high-class establishment that might not suit all tastes or wallets. For those who can afford this rather pricy establishment, the hotel has plenty of history, colonial appeal and an unparalleled location to offer.

Gran Caribe Hotel Victoria

Hotel Victoria  4str

Any cosmopolitan city is mighty proud of having a small, elegant, central hotel with features of its own, and specially cozy, where businessmen and professionals may go in search for comfort their working sessions require, being given a personal and executive attention. In Havana, that's Victoria hotel. Located in Vedado, it is at a walking distance from the main trading offices, airlines and local foreign companies offices. Traditionally intimate yesterday, elegant and executive today.

Gran Caribe Hotel Habana Riviera

Hotel Riviera  4str

Rising next to the ocean in western Vedado, the 16-storey Riviera looks like something out of 1950s Las Vegas or Miami, an airbrushed postcard taking one back to a very different time and world. Stylishly modernist, the building’s 50s look (and feel) carries past the revolving door entrance over to the grand lobby, whose original structure, furnishings and décor have been so well preserved that one wholly expects to come across a group of velvet-clad lounge lizards savoring mojitos and Cuban cigars or a group of mafiosos talking shop on one of the old-fashioned sofas.

A bit over 50 years ago, such an encounter might not have been rare: the hotel was established by mobster Meyer Lanski in 1956, and the property’s short-lived immersion in the world of mafia transactions and gambling is well-documented (the curious spherical structure next to the main edifice, painted in vibrant hues, was once a casino, acoustically designed to take the sound of chips and slot machines into the hotel and seduce guests).

Thanks to the ingenious building design, all guestrooms have views of the Atlantic, taking full advantage of the splendid location: at the north end of Paseo, right on Malecón, a short distance away from Vedado’s entertainment offer and an insignificant cab ride away from Old Havana.

The hotel has a fairly ample food and drinks and entertainment offer. The spacious lobby bar is set next to a row of large glass panels that place one almost literally next to the water, and the Mirador de la Habana restaurant has very nice views of the littoral and city. Reportedly one of Havana’s better nightclubs, the Copa Room Cabaret is the stage for a Tropicana-like show and operates as a disco into the early morning.

Guestrooms, visibly built with comfort in mind, have space aplenty.

Other attractive features at the Riviera include an outdoor swimming pool (with the original, three-level diving platform), a beauty salon, shops, a humidor and free parking outside. Traveling businesspeople or anyone organizing an event or conference also have many options in terms of meeting spaces, including the former casino, today a conference hall equipped with its own bar and stage. A less publicized detail is the modern artwork that graces the lobby and entrance to the hotel, which includes pieces by renowned Cuban sculptor Florencio Gelabert – a fact that could prove of interest to anyone with an eye for modernist art.

Chic, comfortable and tinged by a nostalgic air, the Riviera is a well-located option in the Vedado area. .

Tryp Habana Libre

Tryp Habana Libre  4str

The capital's most emblematic hotel, the Tryp Habana Libre stands on a privileged location right at the center of Vedado, very close to the bicentennial University of Havana and the mythical Malecón, just a few steps from the popular ice-cream parlor Coppelia, from several ministries and institutions and from the Havana Rampa. The twenty-five-story hotel rises majestically and offers an incomparably charming view of important places in the Old Havana, the bay and the sea.

At the Tryp Habana Libre, you will find a wide variety of services and attractions that go from its rooms overlooking sea and city; its four thematic restaurants and bars; spacious rooms equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for functions, congresses and conventions; and the renowned Cabaret "Turquino".

Presidente

Presidente  4str

The Presidente was built between years 1925 and 1927. Completely rebuilt in 2000, keeping all the flavor from its recent history, shared by all the personalities that choose it as their lodging when visiting Havana.

The client will be able to enjoy its “Lobby museum”, to rest in the swimming pool, or will have the possibility to enjoy the Havana life just withing minutes walk.

Gran Caribe Hotel Inglaterra

Inglaterra  4str

Discovering colonial Havana is an additional pleasure for the guests of the Hotel Inglaterra, the oldest hotel in Cuba, which soon will celebrate its 130th anniversary.

Inaugurated in 1875, the Inglaterra is currently one of the oldest and most classic hotels in the city. The building has been declared a National Monument due to its value as part of Cuba 's heritage. Its beautiful neoclassical façade contrasts with its interior decor, which recreates the atmosphere of the colonial period, featuring beautiful stained-glass windows, colorful mosaics, Spanish heraldic symbols, window grills, and intricately worked ceilings.

Guests will enjoy the exclusive Colonial restaurant and La Sevillana, the unique bar and coffee shop. On the highest floor, a terrace bar and grill offers magnificent views of the city.

Located in an exceptional setting, in the most authentic heart of Havana. Next to Paseo del Prado, the Parque Central and the Gran Teatro de la Habana, it is the ideal starting point for discovering the charms of Havana.

Ambos Mundos Boutique

Ambos Mundos Boutique  4str

Though the figure of Ernest Hemingway is immediately and almost invariably invoked in any description of the hotel, the Ambos Mundos' most attractive attribute is doubtless its magnificent location: steps away from the Plaza de Armas, the restored, 1920s establishment stands at one of the liveliest intersections in the Old Town, close to just about all of the most interesting sites of Havana's colonial centre.

Hemingway, who stayed and wrote most of For Whom the Bell Tolls here during the 1930s (his room, 511, is today a much-frequented museum), is not the only famous writer or luminary the hotel welcomed in times past: Federico García Lorca is rumoured to have made a stop here, and Cuban filmmaker Tomás Gutierrez Alea (director of Strawberry and Chocolate) was among the young intellectuals who participated in the festivities once held in its roof garden.

A spacious and tastefully decorated lobby opens to Obispo and Mercaderes, main arteries of the sightseeing circuit often crowded with tourists. The lobby, decorated with an attractive and modern-looking corner fountain, housing art exhibits and featuring a piano bar where jazz and other musicians occasionally perform, is itself often crowded with visitors and is a lively stopover in its own right. The old, 1930s elevator, though said to demand some patience, is a charming detail.

The Del Monte meeting room, with capacity for as many as 100 people, can accommodate conferences, business gatherings and weddings.

Not all of the Ambos Mundos' rooms have views, but those that do overlook the cobbled and picturesque expanse of Obispo and Mercaderes, which benefit from their proximity to the Plaza de Armas: costumed performers, including mulatta florists in colonial attire, old fortune tellers, a squad of soldiers in period English uniforms and a carnivalesque troupe of actors on stilts, are sure to enliven these vistas during your stay at the hotel.

Though close to the action, the Ambos Mundos is not lacking in the quietude and intimacy one will probably seek after a day around town.

Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal

Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal  

OPENING IN 2010!!!
History and modernity come together in this building that at the end of XVIII century belonged to Don Sebastián de Peñalver. At the beginning of the XIX century the property changed hands to the successors of the IV the Marquees of San Felipe and Santiago. The minimalistic interior blends perfectly with the baroque style of its façade. The Hotel Marqués de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal is the first Habaguanex Hotel on San Francisco de Asis Square.

The hotel benefits from a privileged location, nearby the Convent of San Francisco de Asís, home to one of Havana’s best concert halls, dedicated to chamber and choral music. In the vicinity you find the Carmen Montilla gallery, the elegant Café del Oriente, the business center of Old Havana (Lonja del Comercio), the popular Museum of Chocolate and the Cuban Contemporary Ceramics Museum.

From the roof top terrace on the sixth floor of the hotel, visitors can use a telescope to take in the splendor of old Havana. San Francisco de Asis square, with it’s many pigeons and charming Lions Fountain, carved out of marble from Carrara by the Italian artist Giuseppe Gaggini, also treasures the statue of El Caballero de Paris, one of Havana’s most cherished personages.

Telegrafo Boutique

Telegrafo Boutique  4str

Cuba’s oldest hotel, the establishment first opened its doors to the public around 1860, some years after the first telegraphic station was created in the country (the property’s name may in fact have been inspired by this). Moved to its present location in 1888, by around 1914 the hotel rooms and restaurant boasted telephones that afforded guests both national and international services, at a time when even public restrooms were a rare and novel luxury.

The creation of a third floor in 2001, when the hotel officially re-opened for business, marks the culmination not only of restoration efforts begun in the late 90s but also of the vertical expansion of the building, which was originally one-storey high.

Standing at the intersection of Prado and Neptuno, the hotel is a short walk away from the seawall, close to several and renowned places of interest in Old Havana – the Capitolio is practically next door – and well located for an exploration of the colonial part of the city.

Inside, only the high ceilings and supporting arches offer an inkling of the establishment’s past: the lobby, re-done in a colorful, eclectic style and tastefully appointed with modern furnishings, has the feel of modish art gallery. The style carries over to the large snack bar, where the remains of tall, brick arches (retained from the original structure) contrast artfully with the newer décor.

The spacious rooms, too, have been modernized and are comfortably appointed (only some have the preserved remains of original walls). Though the hotel guest list includes a number of interesting personalities and figures (such as archeologist Heinrich Schliemann, credited with the discovery of the city of Troy), the privileged location and robust facilities (including a classy restaurant) will likely be more appealing to guests than the establishment’s history.

Raquel Boutique

Raquel Boutique  4str

A stunning work of architecture, the Raquel contrasts dramatically with its not-so-picturesque surroundings, a rather humble residential area whose one, redeeming virtue is its proximity to the Plaza Vieja and other sites of interest in the Old Town.

The hotel’s ornate and eclectic facade is well matched by the interiors, which are likely to make a powerful first impression: shining marble floors, polished columns and posh period sofas surround you in the kind of palatial luxury you might expect to find in a presidential mansion or high-class art museum. The most striking feature of this grand lobby is doubtless the curved fanlight which crowns a high atrium past the reception desk, which lets in soothing tones of yellow and draws many glances skyward.

This "lavishness" is not the only delightful peculiarity which sets the hotel apart from others in the Old Town. The Raquel is also known for its references to Jewish tradition and faith, which consist of various decorative items (such as a stone engraving of a star of David at the reception) and symbolic artifacts (mezuzahs affixed to room doorframes) scattered about the establishment. The elegant hotel restaurant also serves typical Jewish cuisine, such as borscht and latkes.

Though the surrounding buildings detract from the view somewhat, the rooftop solarium is a good spot to enjoy a drink or gaze lazily at the city. It is also an attractive venue for wedding and other ceremonies or gatherings.

Fitness buffs or those wanting to work up a sweat can avail themselves of a well-appointed gym just below the lobby entrance. A massage service is also offered.

Arranged around the impressive atrium, the accommodations are comfortable and stylishly decorated, sharing in the eclectic elegance of the establishment.

Palacio O'Farrill Boutique

Palacio O'Farrill Boutique  4str

In a very privileged location in the old Havana, a magnificent neoclassic palace is reborn. The hotel is a place of excellence without equal thanks to its rooms, its restaurant, its snack-bar, its inner courtyard with a very old well and a magnificent skylight and its roof-top terrace with a great perspective of the city. The influence from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries on the architecture and decoration of the hotel, causes an exceptional effect of history and modernity in the guests that can enjoy the unique experience of living three centuries at the same time.

Armadores de Santander Boutique

Armadores de Santander Boutique  4str

Facing the broad expanse of the Bay of Havana, the Armadores de Santander stands where the city's colonial past meets its present-day life and attractions.

Though a short walk away from the busy and lively Plaza de San Francisco, at the doorstep of the Old Town’s sightseeing beat and attendant bustle, the hotel is just far enough away from the action to afford the peace and quiet many travellers seek, turned nostalgically towards Havana's days of booming maritime commerce.

The colossal wooden doors, arcade and wrought-iron hanging lamps that greet you at the entrance recall a time of horse-driven carriages and cobbled avenues, and the restored, 19th-century interior and furniture - though bordering on the sombre at places - has class and charm. The long and elegant lobby bar is nestled pleasantly between the avenue and this sober setting.

The terrace and port-facing rooms have amazing, panoramic views of the bay, where the glistening waters are traversed by ships the day through. Tempered by a generous sea-breeze, these are magnificent places to take your breakfast, enjoy a quiet read or let your mind wander out to sea, past the glitter of port-lights at night.

Conde de Villanueva Boutique

Conde de Villanueva Boutique  4str

Conceived with cigar-lovers in mind, this tastefully restored 18th-century mansion has a rustic colonial charm and intimate feel to it that makes it just as ideal for sightseers and couples seeking a relaxed, quiet atmosphere.

The hotel's prime location - quite literally the heart of the Old Town - is somehow spared what some might consider attendant drawbacks, such as hectic traffic or noisy thoroughfares: opposite a small, shaded park, on narrow and cobbled streets that are pedestrian-only, the property is pleasantly situated in an airy and soothing context.

Earthen tones and open, sun-drenched spaces predominate inside, where restoration efforts have left fragments of colonial mosaics and fixtures from the period intact, for an overall effect of authenticity and unassuming grace.

A mere nine rooms are arranged around the inner courtyard, on two levels. The sense of privacy and calm is heightened by the thick, limestone walls that keep both noise and heat outside the accommodations.

Cigar aficionados, tobacco enthusiasts and smokers in general can savour a broad range of brands —and even custom-made habanos—in the cloistered penumbra of a small smoking lounge, located on the mezzanine. One of the wings of a well-stocked and low-ceilinged walk-in humidor and cigar shop, here you can order Cuban cocktails as you nestle into comfortable leather armchairs.

The San Diego del Valle meeting room, with capacity for 60 people, may be rented for conferences, cocktail parties and business rendezvous.

A well-located and intimate establishment, the Conde de Villanueva stands out for its simple and discrete atmosphere.

Gran Caribe Hotel Plaza

Hotel Plaza  4str

Once home to a wealthy Cuban family, later the head office of an influential local newspaper (which, in the late 19th century, was the stage of a violent attack by a pro-Spanish mob), the Hotel Plaza will soon celebrate 100 years of operations and, like other properties in Old Havana, it has no shortage of stories to tell.

Albert Einstein once stayed and dined at a sumptuous banquet here, and the long guest list includes luminaries such as Isidora Duncan and Babe Ruth (whose former accommodations, suite 216, are today a kind of museum of nostalgia for baseball lovers, complete with El Bambino’s bat and ball).

Such details are only part of the Plaza’s historic charm, which immediately strikes the eye in the lobby. Arriving guests are greeted by an original and colorful tile floor, beneath a beautifully-restored bas-relief ceiling supported by white columns. This impressive layout surrounds a large, pleasant lobby bar, where light filters down from stained-glass skylights to a central fountain and planters. Indeed, the décor here makes such a powerful first impression that the upper level halls, with modern tiling, are a slight disappointment.

A block away from Prado (a broad, pleasantly shaded and historic promenade in Old Havana), the Plaza is also privileged in terms of location and makes for a splendid departure point for explorations of this part of town. The Capitolio and Gran Teatro are virtually across the street and Obispo (a few blocks away) takes you to very heart of the city’s colonial centre.

Rooms at the Plaza are spacious and sober and a number of them are graced by a private balcony. If you’re looking for a view, however, the rooftop Bar Solarium is the place to go at this hotel, especially if you would like a privileged look at the impressive Bacardi Building. A more intimate setting is found at the 2nd floor inner patio, ideal for savoring an afternoon tea.

With an elegant restaurant and a more economic, less formal eateries, the Plaza also offers moderately good options for eating in. Other attractive features include an executive meeting room (located on the 5th floor), with capacity for 80 people and technical facilities such as a video projector, a money exchange locale, a professional torcedor rolling Cuban cigars on order next to the lobby bar, and dance lessons offered daily to guests free of charge.

A charmingly old hotel, the Plaza will doubtless please those who seek history-rich properties and more practical types in search of a comfortable, well-located establishment.

Mercure Sevilla

Mercure Sevilla  4str

One of Havana’s Oldest hotels (the establishment turned 100 in March of 2008), the Sevilla has many stories to tell and is privileged in more ways than one.

A popular meeting place for Cuban high society from the time of its inauguration in 1908, in the late thirties the property came to be owned by an Uruguayan with ties to the Italian-American mafia (a notorious character like Santo Trafficante owned shares in the venture). Mobsters, however, would not be the only well-known figures to frequent the hotel: in addition to Al Cappone, luminaries like Enrico Caruso, Graham Greene and Josephine Baker grace the long guestbook.

The Sevilla is situated off Prado, close to Malecón and to places of historical and cultural interest such as the Capitolio and Gran Teatro (a short walk north or south, respectively, takes you to these locations). It is also well located for touring Old Havana and its colonial centre: nearby Obispo takes you to Plaza de Armas, one of the epicenters of the sightseeing circuit.

Inside, the large, spacious lobby combines elegance with a welcoming, cosmopolitan atmosphere which is altogether refreshing. Unlike other establishments in the area, the appeal of this spot is not exclusively visual or historic: in addition to the traditional Cuban music performed by a trio (a nearly ubiquitous offer), the hotel organizes salsa and campesino music days (when a grille is set up in the patio), and a professional troupe stages flamenco performances twice a week. Once a month, original silent films are projected on a screen assembled in the lobby area, to an amusing piano accompaniment that tries to set the mood, attesting to the establishment’s inventive commitment to culture.

Other attractive features include the palatial Roof Garden, an enormous and supremely elegant restaurant with great views of the city, an arcade with shops which adjoins the lobby at its far end, a money exchange locale, and a meeting room which can seat up to 45 people. The hotel is also one of three in the area that boasts a swimming pool, and the poolside facilities are surprisingly well equipped (there is a modern gym, a sauna and massage service).

With enough atmosphere to please visitors seeking historically interesting properties, the Sevilla combines class, a lively cultural scene and an excellent location.

Florida Boutique

Florida Boutique  4str

Located on Obispo, one of the main, pedestrian arteries of the Old Town, the Hotel Florida affords a feeling of being close to the throbbing life of the city (though the narrow and crowded thoroughfare may prove too busy for some). Well-positioned between Parque Central and the Plaza de Armas, it is one of the best points of departure for an exploration of the Old Town that you can ask for.

Arriving guests are greeted by a finely-carved, glistening art-deco statue of a nude belle, a remarkable sculptural work that has become one of the Florida's identifying charms. Past this reception area, the establishment's stately colonial past is announced in a Spanish-styled inner courtyard, where bare-stone columns, hanging period lamps and a glass fanlight provide a hugely relaxing ambience.

The elegance of the property, common to all restored mansions in the Old Town now operating as hotels, carries over to the restaurant, equipped with a well-stocked bar. A less formal and livelier option is the hotel piano bar, where Cuban music and jazz are performed live every night.

Accommodations, designed to recall the colonial era, have a kind of austere simplicity to them which contrasts with the hotel's public spaces. All are agreeably spacious and well-appointed. Guests arriving or departing by car can avail themselves of a lot just across the street. The narrow and busy grid of surrounding streets, however, makes walking a less stressful alternative. With more than enough taste to satisfy the discerning tourist, the Hotel Florida is also ideally located for those who wish to explore and be close to the city's cultural life.

San Miguel

San Miguel  4str

A stay at the San Miguel Hotel will probably feel like a privileged sojourn at someone’s private mansion, a treat for those who prefer small, intimate settings.

As in many of the Old Town’s properties now operating as hotels, restoration efforts here have been guided by taste and fidelity to historical fact: most of the San Miguel’s furniture and décor is original, and the discrete, modern-day fittings blend imperceptibly with these. Some furnishings, such as the upholstered arm-chairs and sofa in the seating-area-turned-lobby-bar next to the reception show worn, faded patterns, signs of use which add to the feeling of authenticity and intimacy.

With only 10 rooms, the San Miguel is the kind of cozy establishment where you can reasonably expect to make friends with the staff and be on a first-name basis with them. Despite the aristocratic elegance of the interiors, there’s no stuffy etiquette or protocol here: guests will find hotel spaces welcoming and feel at home as they to take their meals in the sunny 2nd-floor restaurant and hall, the adjacent Sevillana terrace or the roof terrace, which has a killer view of the harbour and the Morro complex lighthouse, across the bay.

Off the Malecón, the San Miguel is also an excellent starting point for any sightseeing venture into Havana’s Old Town and its historic sites.

Beltran de Santa Cruz Boutique  3str

An elegant big house from the 18th century, located very closely to the Old Square, opens as a cozy hotel, where the combination of modern and old architectural elements stresses the originality of its attractive design. The Beltran de Santa Cruz hotel, an exquisite place that is reborn in the old city, will leave indelible memories on you.

Del Tejadillo Boutique

Tejadillo Boutique  3str

The splendid location and welcoming interiors are the Tejadillo’s most evident charms. At the intersection of narrow and cobbled streets, the hotel enjoys an intimate and relatively quiet setting in the colonial heart of the Old Town, around the corner from the Cathedral and many - as well as diverse - sites of interest.

Inside, space and comfort take precedence over genuineness and “old-world feeling”, which only suggest themselves in an unusual layout and mix of styles that will probably arouse the curiosity of attentive guests. History, we learn, had a significant say in this: the property is actually a fusion of three mansions from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

Most rooms are arranged around a small, pleasant courtyard adorned with a central fountain and pierced dramatically by a tall, tropical tree. Though a number of these lack windows, all are spacious and favoured by the quiet and cosy surroundings.

Guests can take their breakfast or enjoy a meal at a cozy and discretely elegant dining area or its adjacent, well-kept courtyard. Past the eatery is a small, pub-like bar with tall, barred windows that look out onto the cobbled thoroughfares, where the Cathedral stands but a block away.

Park View Boutique

Park View Boutique  3str

Less appealing in terms of history than most hotels in this part of town, the Park View is a good, practical option for tourists wanting to explore Old Havana and spend a bit less on accommodations.

On a narrow street facing the less than picturesque façade of an old building, the hotel is just off Prado (a broad, tree-lined promenade) and around the corner from both the seawall and several places of historical and cultural interest (including the splendid Cuban art building of the Fine Arts Museum).

The lobby is narrow and its furnishings somewhat plain. Still, there is a cozy, welcoming feel to it that is not without its charm.

A better view of the city is afforded by the Prado, a modestly appointed restaurant on the top floor.

Discrete and comfortable, the Park View continues to profit from what has always been one of its chief privileges: a great location near the old and modern parts of Havana.
