Tobacco, rum and Che Guevara

A travel blog entry by milla_taylor

As soon as you touch down, you know you have arrived in Cuba. Driving into Havana is like a Cuban introduction through all the iconic images that we know and recognise with this country.. driving in an old 50s Chevy we pass image upon image of Che Guevara, men smoking cigars on the roadsides and hot air filled with traditional Cuban music playing …

CHE GUEVARA

A travel blog entry by sgaudun

The Viazul bus to Santa Clara and the classically art deco Hotel Florida. This is where the Revolution was won by Che Guevara when he derailed a government troop train using a caterpillar tractor and decimated the government troops in a crossfire. There is an impressive statue, memorial and mausoleum dedicated to this famous Argentinian doctor and …

Dirty Havana Trilogy

A travel blog entry by julian-sarah

... unique place I have ever been to, not that I am that well travelled, but even for Sarah nothing else has topped it. People say you could spend days just walking around New York City looking at the city lights, well I think you could spend weeks walking around the streets of Havana in awe at what was and what it is today. All I can say is that before the revolution Havana must of been the creme de la creme. Even after 55 years of zero maintenance and dilapidation the ...

AN OLD CITY AND AN ART CITY

A travel blog entry by rachel21601

From the moment we landed in Miami the weather has been sunny and warm, but not too hot. We begin another perfect day with a walking tour of Havana Vieja, Old Havana, or as we learn, properly called St. Christopher of Havana. The present site, the third of three, was established in 1519, 88 years before Jamestown. Not everything in Old Havana is old; rather there is a pleasant mix of architectural styles: the 16th century fortress, currently a ...

Cigars, rum and old cars..?

... teeming with! They are simply beautiful and very hard not to become obsessed with. The drive through the torrential rain into Havana showed us lush green landscapes, dilapidated buildings, propaganda splashed upon building walls and huge paintings of Che and Castro.

Our hostel was amazing- tall ceilings, decorations and memorabilia from around the world and the best feature- lobster for dinner!!! Our first day we wandered around ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Florida Havana

    Already needs a refresh

    from

    Great location an easy stroll from the Plaza de Armas and Plaza de San Francisco, and neither too far from the Parque Central (also less than 10 mins stroll).

    The best.....

    from

    The best hotel that I stayed at on my three visits to Havana during my Cuban adventure.

    Extremely friendly,polite and helpful staff.I was upgraded to a corner suite room on arrival, well three rooms actually all with balcony!.The hotel exudes colonial charm and sits on one of the main pedestrian throughfares,Obispo, in Old Havana. It really makes you feel part of your surroundings...you can smell the history!

    Believe me if you can forego the use of a swimming pool then you will not do better than to book yourself into this hotel.

    For your information the other hotels I stayed at were the Raquel and the Parque Central which were both good hotels in their own right but were always runners up to the Florida when it came to service and all round charm and appeal.

    A little expensive but very nice

    from

    Lovely large rooms with beamed ceilings and big bathrooms, simple elegant furniture. Charming inner courtyard. The location is great, right on the busy Calle Obispo.

    Breakfast was disappointing. Overall the hotel is a little expensive.

    Our room was unavailable when we arrived which seems to be a recurring problem in Cuba.....

    We checked out several other hotels while in Habana and would also reccommend Raquel, Santa Isabel, Ambos Mundos (slightly scruffier but fun), Telegrafo and Sevilla if you want a pool. Don't reccommend Nacional or Parque Central. Much better to stay in old or central Havana if you are on a short stay.

    Great location but can be noisy

    from

    The hotel was great, and as people have mentioned, it has a fabulous location and the staff are friendly.

    It has a piano bar with live music most nights in a very well sound proofed room. However, the hotel can be noisy when this bar closes at 2am - mainly due to drunk people finding their way back to their room - although having done this myself once, I can't really complain. It's the mojitos.

    As another reviewer also commented, the car park gate at the side of the hotel is very squeaky and can wake you.

    Only one criticism of the hotel itself, which is that the bedroom floors were always dusty and dirty so I don't recommend bare feet, especially if they are still slightly damp from the shower !!

    No problems with dodgy plumbing.

    from

    This hotel was excellent. We stayed for 2 nights in October 2004.

    The hotel is full of character and the courtyard area is lovely.

    The room was ideal - very high ceilings, with a lovely marble bathroom. Our room had a fridge. The breakfast at the hotel was fine too.

    Its the location that makes it, right on the Obispo, but still quiet. Walking distance to anywhere in Havana Vieja.

    Top tip: Ask for a tour of the Grand Theatre -- its spectacular and we got to see a ballet being rehearsed.

    Gracious hotel

    from

    Good location to walk around Havana Vieja. Our room (Junior suite) was big enough with veranda, People are nice, the bar has nice atmosphere, the pianist there was very good.

    Great hotel in old havana

    from

    We stayed in this charmingly renovated hotel in July - lovely accommodation - clean, friendly, very well located. Breakfast was a good buffet, covering all tastes. Only the creaking car park gate at the back of the hotel sometimes woke us up - but that can't be helped! no issues with power cuts or dodgy bathrooms, as in other hotels....

    Hotel Florida - fabulous

    from

    The Hotel Florida is in a grear location, right in the heart of Havan Vieja. Beautifully restored, with huge rooms, lovely and helpful staff and great breakfasts. Highly recommended!

    Hotel Florida-by far the best

    from

    If you want to be in the most historic part of Havana-in Habana Vieja-this is by far the best hotel. It is a confortably small hotel with aproximately 15-20 rooms. The building is a renovated stone colonial structure with beautiful rooms. The cielings in the rooms are 12 feet high with iron balconies that look over the narrow walking street in front of the hotel. The bathrooms are marble and tile. It is like being in a palace; the rooms open up to inner courtyard with corinthian collumns surrounding the lobby below. Suprisingly, the Florida was the same price as the other hotels (the Plaza, Inglaterra, Sevilla, Ambos Mundos, etc) but at least three times as beautiful. We unfortunately stayed at the Plaza for the first 6 days of our 8 day trip. Next time will be spent at the Florida.

    A great place to stay in Havana

    from

    This is a wonderful hotel (for Cubans standards). Located in Havana Vieja in a renovated colonial building. Clean, not too big. A great band plays in the bar almost every night.
