Fodor's Review

Named for a mesón (tavern) frequented by Spanish sailors in colonial times, this hotel in the heart of the Old City has five rooms with every modern amenity and spotless bathrooms. The bar's nightly flamenco performances are worth a look, and the restaurant's Spanish cooking offers respite from Antillean fare.

Check out the flamenco dancing

Highly recommended. Beautiful, old, small hotel, with 12 ft ceilings, balconies onto the street, right in the midst of Old Havana. Great location, spotless rooms, decent food and good value.
