At a Glance
- bathroom fittings are high quality
- the hotel is located in an awkward location, and is not as central as many Habaguanex properties
Palacio O'Farrill Review
Adjacent to Havana Bay and Cathedral Square, this hotel was once the house of Don Ricardo O'Farrill, descendant of one of the wealthiest and most affluent members of the Spanish-colonial aristocracy. The entrance courtyard is impressive, if not as snazzy as that in some of the older buildings in the heart of the old city. The hotel, which opened in 2007, has a signature restaurant, Don Ricardo, serving Cuban and international cuisine. The Chico O'Farrill snack bar features latin Jazz.
