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.
"Run-down and not worth the money"
Itâ€™s very difficult to find decent accommodation in Havana to tolerable prices. I thought being part of the Mercure chain would be some kind of proof that you get value for your money or at least a certain standard, but boy was I wrong. The hotel claims a whopping four stars, which is so overrated that itâ€™s not even funny anymore. Those four stars offer you small, damp rooms that are outdated and dirty, full of black hairs. It didnâ€™t help much that the maid had made a swan out of my towel. Noise insulation is non-existent. The hotel offers loud live music both in the lobby and in the 9th floor restaurant. My room was on the 6th floor, and I could hear both the songs and the clapping, as well as snores from the room nextdoor. Your basic needs will be fulfilled; thereâ€™s not very efficient A/C, thereâ€™s a not very efficient small fridge, thereâ€™s hot water and then thereâ€™s supposed to be wi-fi (1 CUC/hour), but at times itâ€™s so slow that itâ€™s impossible to surf the web and even to receive emails, then at other times itâ€™s fast enough to watch videos. Wi-fi requires a scratch card, which are sold at reception should they happen to have any. During my stay they ran out. The breakfast room on the top floor boasted singing birds â€“ which flew in and out through the open balcony doors at random. Not very hygienic. The buffet was adequate with some fresh fruit, bread, cheese etc. Omelettes made on request. The one good thing about this hotel is its location right on the Prado, a few minutes from Parque Central and within walking distance of all the sights in Habana Vieja and the MalecÃ³n. Thereâ€™s also a reasonably-sized outdoor swimming pool and sunbeds, open 10â€“6 every day. Most staff members were reasonably friendly. They could, however, try to get rid of the hellomyfriendwhereareyoufrom guys who gather around the main entrance. I paid an exorbitant room rate of 210 USD/night and received what I would rate less than three-star accommodation thatâ€™s worth a third of the price at most. Itâ€™s sad â€“ I could see myself returning to Havana one day, albeit to a different hotel, but with hotel rates soaring through the roof, it simply makes no sense.
"Amazing location, great live music!"
A trip we waited 40 years to make, our family came for the first time to Cuba where one of us was born and left as a child. It was a big decision where to stay, but we are very glad we chose the Hotel Sevilla. This hotel has an incredible location in the center of Old Havana, right next to the famous Prado walkway. Very large with Moorish tile everywhere, it even has a huge Figure 8 shaped pool in the center of all the action. You hear the cars whizzing by and feel the credible breeze that never stops surrounded by antique ornate crumbling buildings. All the rooms have very high ceilings but are very varied in size and amenities. The three rooms on the 7th floor our family occupied were different in every way yet we paid the same for all three; size, bed type, amount of rooms, and views. Our rate included a breakfast that was extremely comprehensive, with freshly cooked omelettes, a selection of fruit, yogurt, cereals, freshly baked bakery items, cold cuts and was in the beautiful 9th floor restaurant. The lobby level interior courtyard had very professional live music for hours each day, and we enjoyed many drinks and meals there. The waiters, especially Hector, were extremely attentive, fun, and made us feel quite welcome. We converted all our money to dollars right in the lobby, and received a fair exchange rate. One night we had dinner in the 9th floor exclusive restaurant which we found to be priced much more fairly than the local restaurants we walk to in the Old Havana neighborhood within blocks of the hotel. With ten foot high French doors, open to a panoramic view of the city at night, we ate to the sound of live opera singers and enjoyed a selection of lobster entrees that were incredible. We could easily walk one block to buy liquor and snacks to keep in our room and walk to all the major squares that any tourist would want to see for their first time in Havana. In the whole trip the only drawbacks were the hour and a half it took the woman at the front desk to check us in, and some of the other waiters were not as pleasant as they should have been to our large family group spending lots of $. Our room's electricity blew each time we used the hair dryer, and the place could use some repairs, but that is the story of all Havana! This hotel choice was the best decision we made in planning our trip. We are glad we came here and would certainly stay here on our next trip back!
"Affordable and good service"
Although the hotel is very old, the service is excellent. The staff from the maintenance and cleaning to the General Manager were very attentive. The music in the lobby was great and the location is terrific.
I have booked this hotel for my forth coming birthday and as yet have not experienced an overnight visit . As a long time visitor to Cuba I have had the pleasure of spending time in their bar and the music The reason for my review is the comments about being ripped off by the currency exchange. While I don t condone the actions of the employee I fully understand the financial pressures on the Cuban people by the American policies . Loosing 10-15 cuc is nothing compared to what tourists face in Mexico and some of South America Tourism is the life blood of Cuba and they take it very seriously .We must always be careful when traveling but also understand what the people live with
"Not up to Mercure Standards"
We expected this hotel to be a treat after a week of staying at Casas Particulares while touring the country. It was an expensive disappointment. A 4PM check in, what's with that? The room was small and in dire need of a fresh coat of paint. Mattress was thin. Public areas, particularly the pool change rooms were not maintained. Pizza at the pool bar was slimy. We had an early departure so could not take advantage of included breakfast. However we were told that a continental breakfast would be available from the lobby bar. Unfortunately, nobody seemed to inform the bar that this service was available.
