Fodor's Review

Adjacent to Havana Bay and Cathedral Square, this hotel was once the house of Don Ricardo O'Farrill, descendant of an Irish man who made his fortune in the sugar trade. The entrance courtyard is impressive, if not as snazzy as that in some of the older buildings in the heart of the old city. Each floor of the hotel is dedicated to a different era, either the 18th, 19th, or 20th centuries, and rooms are decorated accordingly. Try to ask for one with a private balcony. The hotel has a signature restaurant, Don Ricardo, serving Cuban and international cuisine. The Chico O'Farrill snack bar features Latin jazz.
