WHERE TO STAY — HAVANA HOTELS


LUXURY



Hotel Nacional

Hotel Nacional
Calles 0 & 21, Vedado
7/873-3564
www.hotelnacionaldecuba.com
Considered Havana's flagship hotel, although rooms at this 1930s grand dame are overpriced. Excellent restaurant and cabaret, and the garden terrace is the place to relax with a cigar and rum cocktail.

Hotel NH Parque Central

Hotel Parque Central
Calle Neptuno between Agramonte and Prado
Centro Habana
7/860-6627
www.hotelparquecentral-cuba.com
A beautiful hotel with a superb location and excellent facilities, including two fine restaurants and a cigar lounge.

Hotel Santa Isabela

Hotel Santa Isabela
Calle Baratillo #8, Plaza de Armas
Habana Vieja
7/860-8201
www.habaguanex.com
Steeped in colonial ambience, this 18th-century edifice is fitted out in stylish colonial fashion. And the location can't be beat.

Hotel Saratoga

Hotel Saratoga
Paseo del Prado #603, corner of Dragones
Habana Vieja
7/868-1000
www.hotel-saratoga.com
The city's most deluxe hotel exudes sophistication, although the Moorish-style restaurant serves dismal food.

MODERATE

Hotel Ambos Mundos

Hotel Ambos Mundos
Calle Obispo #15 at Mercaderes
Habana Vieja
7/860-9530
www.habaguanex.com


Hotel Florida

Hotel Florida
Calle Obispo #252
Habana Vieja
7/862-4127

Hotel Inglaterra

Hotel Inglaterra
Paseo del Prado #416 between San Rafael and San Miguel
Habana Vieja
7/860-8594
www.gran-caribe.com
Popular with tour groups, this hotel has disappointing rooms; the atmospheric restaurant and a fine location on Parque Central make amends.

Hotel Plaza

Hotel Plaza
Calles Zulueta & Neptuno
Habana Vieja
7/860-8583
www.gran-caribe.com
A towering 19th-century building where guests are serenaded in the sumptuous lobby. Rooms and dining here are a let-down. Go for the location.

Hotel Mercure Sevilla

Hotel Mercure Sevilla
Calle Trocadero #55
Centro Habana
7/860-8560
www.gran-caribe.com
Made famous by Graham Green's Our Man in Havana. The lobby and rooftop restaurant here have fine Mughal details, but room decor is ho-hum.

Hotel Telegrafo

Hotel Telégrafo
Calle Neptuno and Paseo de Prado
Centro Habana
7/861-1010
www.habaguanex.com
A charming restoration of a colonial-period hotel, rooms here are surprisingly modern.

PRACTICAL

Hostal Valencia

Hostal Valencia
Calle Oficios #53 at Obrapia
Habana Vieja
7/857-1037
www.habaguanex.com
A great value just off Plaza San Francisco, this hotel resembles a Spanish bodega, complete with Spanish restaurant. Rooms have marble floors and modern bathrooms.
