Hotel Inglaterra

Paseo del Prado 416, Havana, 10200, Cuba

Inaugurated in 1875, this is Cuba's oldest hotel and there's much to admire here—photographs of old Havana, intricate Andalusian tiles, the shield of Spain's Catholic kings behind the bar. Rooms are gloomy, but they seem more "real" than those in the glass-and-steel high-rises; Graham Greene stayed here when he last visited Havana in 1958. The ground-floor Gran Café del Louvre is a great people-watching spot, the roof-terrace restaurant has unparalleled views, and all the sights of Centro and La Habana Vieja are a short walk away.

PROS

  • you can't beat the location of this hotel at the foot of La Habana Vieja
  • the patio has live music daily

CONS

  • room design and amenities are below standard, especially considering that this is a historic property
