TravelPod Member ReviewsGran Caribe Hotel Inglaterra Havana
The hotel is okay, but overpriced and has not really 4Star. It's location is good but it is very old and needs refurbishment. The breakfast is okay but do not dine here. The food isn't good.

... short, our no-fee Citibank card was useless in Cuba because Citibank is an American company and is embargoed in Cuba (we couldn't even access their website), so we had to use our high-fee Mastercard to withdraw money for our time in Cuba (if I was to come to Cuba again I would just bring all the cash I needed in Euros). We were staying in Havana Vieja (the old town), which is a fascinating place, where people open the doors and windows of their tiny, ...

Lots of km today, maybe 650, almost without any stops. We know "the highway" very well now. One policeman has stopped us and he told us it was the third car he stopped today, all 3 with Swiss drivers license. He laughed. We found policemen in Cuba very kind and helpful.
