Een absoluut hoogtepunt tijdens uw rondreis door Cuba is de stad Havana, de fascinerende hoofdstad van Cuba. Veelal zal Havana uw beginpunt zijn van uw vakantie in Cuba of tevens uw eindpunt van uw reis. Havana is hoe dan ook een stad waar u minstens 3 dagen moet verblijven; er is immers zo veel te zien en te doen dat het zonde is om Havana in een sneller tempo te bezoeken.
Bovenal is Havana een gezellige stad met vele Spaans-koloniale overblijfselen. Het is er altijd druk en gezellig en overdag zijn de Amerikaanse auto's uit de vijftiger jaren een opvallend straatbeeld.
"Don't expect much"
overpriced and under nice sweet maids, grumpy front desk people - very full of themselves. I mean, they work at the desk of a hotel, why not be! and then there is the $5 internet cards sold every where else for $2. Very disappointed to pay $500 a night for a beautiful old building - with GREAT entertainment - but little things just not right. place would have been a good deal at $60 a night. MAYBE
"Great location and senseof history. Ridiculous price!"
Havana is awesome- go now and enjoy it before it changes. Great architecture, music, old cars and cocktails. Even the restaurants were better than we hoped. The Mecure Seville is full of history- its referenced in Graham Green's Our Man in Havana and was Al Capone's residence of choice. Its stunning outside- like a grand Andalusian palace although most of the rooms are in the less attractive extension. The lobby was lovely if a little faded- we chose the hotel because it was central and had a pool but the pool was run down and we were too busy exploring anyway. We knew that there was a shortage of hotels when we booked - we did our whole Cuba trip directly with the accommodation rather then use an agent. So supply and demand means pricey rooms- but a combo of poor exchange rates and additional fees for credit card we ended up paying nearly 700 Cuban Dollars- almost Â£700. For three nights!! The room was really shabby and not clean. There was no operating lift to our seventh floor, bedding was thin and worn, hot water was sporadic and I got locked in the loo! Breakfast was in the stunning rooftop dining room and was very good- lots of choice and some great bread. The fruit loaf or chocolate bread was yummy. So yes its got great character but no excuse for grubby rooms. We stayed in Casa Particueres in Cienfuegos and Trinidad at a fifth of the cost and twice the service. I'd recommend booking one of these rather than this old wreck.
"Rustic experience "
Arrived and was greeted by friendly staff. Music was playing in the reception. Lively buzz. The room felt authentic - relatively basic but rustic and part of the Cuban experience. Sheets are slightly starchy so not the best bed. We stayed on the 6th floor which al Capone apparently stayed. If you are an early sleeper ask to stay on the side away from the music as there is music playing constantly till around 10ish and you can hear it quite loudly in the room. The air con was difficult to work out - it didn't allow for the temperature to change. Just on or off. The safe didn't work but they sent someone straight to fix it. Pool was nice - however the food by the pool was awful. Do not eat there. We had spaghetti that was completely uncooked and crunchy and when I asked for it to be re cooked I think they heated up what I had and didn't give me fresh food and was still a little hard. There is constantly music playing which allows for a fun environment. Drinks and food is cheap. Internet is expensive - 4.50CUC an hour and it's quite hit and miss. Great location, really close to lots of the main attractions like the capitol. Can get taxis easily - but walking is straight forward.
The fourth time I have spent 2 weeks each time at this hotel. Having stayed at 4 different properties in the area from 3-star to 5-star, this remains my favourite. I stayed this time in the same room as my first stay here, Room 614. Very satisfied with the room overall, but some updates needed in drapery, etc. The staff were friendly and kept the room very clean, attending immediately to any small problem such as dead batteries in the TV clicker. Outside the room is a small plaque mentioning that Al Capone took the whole 6th floor for him and his associates. Hotel Sevilla opened in 1908 and in 1919 became the Sevilla Biltmore, associated with the Havana mafia. The staff throughout the hotel were wonderful. Breakfast was buffet and filled with a good assortment of foods. The chef made eggs to my and other guests preference. Another pleasant 2 weeks. I want to return, but I think there has been a change of ownership. My price for the 2 weeks included flights from Toronto, Canada, transfers, hotel with daily breakfast for a cost of about $1700 CAD. Looking at costs for the same package in November 2016 and in June 2017, the price for each time is about $4800 CAD. Almost the same as the 5-star a block away! Maybe back to the Hotel Parque Central next time?
"Great location, colonnial style charm"
Not European luxury - but it's real Havana and that's what we wanted. Colonial style charm and a great ambience. Rooms massive(well ours was). Always a Salsa buzz and music in the foyer. Nice simple breakfasts and good service. Staff, like everyone we met in Cuba, helpful and friendly. Location though absolutely perfect for exploring the city on foot which is well worth the tired legs. Tip - find the old derelict Bacardi Rum headquarters 2 mins from the hotel and pay 2 CUC to get to the top - best little known view of the City you will get. You will of course find something to moan about if you are that way inclined but hey get in the Cuban spirit have another Mojito and chill.
