Miramar VS Old Havana

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to stay at the Occidential Miramar for 2 weeks. We are doing an air + hotel + breakfast package.

I have been reading hotel reviews on various sites re: Occidential Miramar - but they are all dated 2003 / Early 2004 (trip advisor, yahoo travel etc.)

Question 1: Is there anyone who can provide me with a more recent review / experiences of the Miramar? Room standard, restaurants etc.

Some websites state that Miramar is far from everything. Approx. travel time states 15 min to Downtown, others state 5 minutes.

Question 2: Is Miramar really far from downtown Havana and Old Havana? What is the approximate taxi fare? Can we take a bus?

I am just debating whether it is worth it to stay in Miramar ($$$ on taxi) or try to find a hotel more central.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
