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.
"A historic place to stay in the best part of Havana"
We arrived at the Tryp Habana Libra via a taxi from Varadero airport on an extremely wet Saturday in late May. Although it was raining steadily, it was still warm and the welcome we received was very friendly. Havana is a bit of a culture shock, being in a communist country with few export opportunities and thanks to the Donald, a somewhat constrained tourism industry (Americans face a number of restrictions if they wish to visit). This means the city is rather run down (to put it mildly), it is however full of artwork, interesting architecture and friendly people who will do their best to ensure you enjoy your stay in their wonderful city. The hotel has 25 floors and is located on Avenida 23, Calle L in the La Rampa part of the Vedado district. Our suite was on the fifteenth (1518), which proved to be spacious, comfortable, in good repair and with efficient air conditioning. The electrical sockets were of the twin blade type. Once registered, the Reception staff will happily change Sterling and other Hard Currencies (but not USA Dollars) into Cuban Convertible Pesos without you needing to produce your passport. A 24 hour diner is located on the ground floor while breakfast and other meals are served in the main restaurant located on the first floor (for us Brits) or the second floor according to the locals (and the lifts). We were staying on a Bed and Breakfast basis and the breakfasts were very good indeed. Plenty of variety and as much as you wanted to eat. Bottles of Cava were provided as well as the constituents of British and Continental breakfasts. The restaurant was bright and clean and well staffed (throughout our stay in Cuba it was noticeable that hotels were staffed to a much higher level than is the norm outside of this country). The hotel is full of Cuban artwork and is also historically significant was it was the base for the Headquarters of the Revolution for the first three months of 1959 following Castro's overthrow of Batista. As well as a nightclub on the top floor, you are entertained by a typical Cuban trio outside one of the Bars on the ground floor. we noticed that one of the hotel staff actually serenaded guests during the trio's nightly performance (he had a very good voice but as neither of us spoke Spanish we have no idea of the title or subject of the song he chose to sing). We found the Habana Libre an ideal base for exploring Havana, the Malecon was a short stroll away and the main tourist destinations within easy reach, especially if you make use of one of the many classic cars that tout as taxis in the city. Food, drink and transport were all very reasonably priced and the locals invariably did all they could to make your stay a memorable one.
"Not your average melia"
This was the old Hilton before the revolution.Now its one of the 3 melia hotels in Havana. The hotel offers 1 hour wifi cards for USD5, however the wifi was pretty weak and unstable but this is a norm in Cuba. The lifts were very slow and sometimes stopped at random floors and some were very old and not refurbished. At first, we were given a normal room and it was horrendous. The room was quite dirty and was old. These were NOT one of the refurbished rooms. However, we realized that was just our temporary room and we got upgraded to the premium room on the 23rd floor and that room was very nice. It was extremely clean and was comfortable and had an excellent view of the city and unlike many hotels in the city, was very modern. I highly recommend splurging a bit to get the premium room as it is FAR better than the normal rooms. The location was pretty good and was near old Havana and various sights. The lobby of the hotel was very nice and clean and there were a few restaurants/bars and many shops selling cigars, alcohol etc. Pricing was pretty good compared to other hotels but I would recommend staying in casas(B&Bs/Home stays) instead. Cheapest to book with the hotel themselves instead of the aggregators.
"Excellent central hotel"
Just returned from Cuba where we spent out first three nights at Tryp Habana Libre. Reception were very friendly and quick to check us in. Rooms very large but as most reviews state very tired and worn, although for us it added to the charm. Take time to study the artwork and wonderful photo history of this magnificent hotel. Adequate complimentary shampoo/conditioner and shower gel. Rooms cleaned every day to a very good standard. Pool area nice with plenty of sun loungers, perfect for a dip in the pool after a long morning sightseeing. Visit the top floor bar/restaurant, wonderful view over Havana. This hotel uses 110v flat pin plugs. Perfect location for exploring this modern side of Havana. Took a car tour around Havana in a Cadillac with an excellent guide who explained the history very well. Well worth doing. Downsides for us: - Changed sterling cash into CUC but very bad rate at the hotel, better to change up at the Airport when you first arrive Booked half board in advance but found we could only use one of their restaurants which was more like a canteen and the only drinks you could have were local beer,sprite or local coke/orangeade served in the can. Water in small bottles. All drinks had to be purchased for evening meal, food ok but not really comparative to local restaurants in price or quality so I would not recommend paying for half board. Breakfast however was good. Entertainment in various parts of the hotel good, enjoyed a night with trio of local artists singing in main reception, one member of staff joined in and was very good. These local artists i assume are busking and not hired by the hotel. Most will ask to sell you a CD at the end. Beware though we paid 10CUC assuming we were buying a CD of their own music compilations but what we got was a few songs burnt into a CD of very poor quality and not one sung by those we watched. Don't let that stop you giving a tip though as they rely on this money to live on. All in all a fantastic time in Havana in a hotel steeped in history.
I had a really nice stay at this hotel and has a lot of history inside here as this was basically the White House for Castro when he first took power. You can actually stay in the room that was his office
"Tired but clean"
I was like many others of mixed feelings due to some negative reviews but overall was very pleased with our three night stay in the Tryp Habana Libre. We stayed on the 18th floor looking out towards the old town, the room was very dated and some of the fixtures and fittings were to say the least a bit care worn and rough around the edges! But the maid made sure it was spotless everyday and it was the facilities were adequate for a place to crash. We stayed on a B&B basis and I would recommend the Breakfast facilities whole heartily. A great choice of food all to a very high standard. We never tried the other restaurants in the hotel but did use the bar a couple of times but did have a bit of trouble with some of the staff's total lack of english but it all worked out well with a bit of pointing at menu's Etc.! Excellent location for the local amenities and walking onto the old town We also used the swimming pool on a couple of occasions which was very pleasant despite the road noise from the streets below. All in all it was pleasant enough for a short break
