Our OpinionPlease note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.
OverviewIn the centre of Old Havana facing Parque Central. Approximately 25 km from the Havana airport and 130 km from the Varadero airport.
We start our 14 day trip in Cuba in Havana.This is our hotel for three days.It is a luxurious hotel in the middle of town.Also the oldest hotel in cuba.They have a nice roof terrace.A great breakfast buffet.Staff was friendly. From this hotel you can easily walk to the main attractions in Havana.Because of the large amount of cabs opposite of the hotel you can even go further.
We visited the hotel for lunch and were amazed by how beautiful the building was. The interior is stunning! The saying 'Don't judge a book by it's cover' strongly apply here, however. We sat inside for lunch and ordered sandwiches. 2 of us ordered bacon, chicken and salad sandwiches. Unfortunately, they had run out of salad but we said just the bacon and chicken would be fine. The bacon was more like spam, the chicken was dry but the bread was fine.We waited about 10 minutes for the bill before giving up waiting and going to the bar to pay.When we came to pay, the bill was higher than it should have been because they'd charged us for different sandwiches. When I queried it, the lady behind the bar got very aggressive in her tone very quickly. She said we had been given the 'super sandwiches'. They were FAR from super!! She was insistent that that's what we'd had, so that's what we were paying for. I was incensed by their absolute rudeness and would highly recommend popping in to see the beautiful interior and skipping all else!
If you are after a nice hotel in the centre of Havana then the Hotel Inglaterra would be hard to beat,it is the oldest hotel in Havana but still in great shape,great character and lovely feel about the hotel.You walk out of the front door and most of the time there will be a band playing in the hotel's seating area,look out and you will see the park right in front of you,all around are classic cars,only down side,we got woken up most mornings before 7am from banging and staff talking very loudly near our door on the first floor close to the medic centre,might be ok on other floors.Food was fairly basic the same as all Havana.There was entertainment every night in the hotel Parque central.Don't pay any more than $30 per car for an hours ride in a classic car,the rep tried to sell us a trip for $65 each,staff are more friendly if you can speak a bit of spanish
This hotel is centrally located on the square and is a fabulous piece of history in Havana.It is by no means 5 star luxury but if you want to experience how Havana was before the revolution this is the place for you. The rooms are comfortable although warm and the bathroom areas are large. The buffet is a bit hit and miss but there is a lovely rooftop bar with live music to keep guests entertained of an evening. It is however a little loud so if this bothers you you're probably well advised to get a room on a lower floor. There are more modern and luxurious hotels available but for the price and location the Inglaterra has a great atmosphere in a beautiful building.
Stayed here for 2 nights, the decor and high ceilings and the atmosphere was really humble, the waitress rose is a key part in the hotel during the day, she is so lovely. The food was delicious and the sandwiches lunch time in the bar/lobby area are so tasty. The room was lovely and had fantastic character, few things needed upgrading like shower but was still ok. Enjoyed my stay thankyou
