Popular with cruise ship passengers who extend their vacations to savor the city, the Havana is about equidistant from the Moderniste sights of the Eixample and the Gothic Quarter. Room decors are in soothing tones of brown and beige, with dark polished hardwood floors and black-lacquer desks. The rooms are comfortably ample; upscale accommodations on the 6th floor have private terraces. Double doors and double-glazed windows provide better-than-average soundproofing,
but the rumble of the subway is palpable on the lower floors. In season, the rooftop deck, with its small plunge pool and bar-café, is the place to gather.

More for the Business traveller. For the money I would stay elsewhere. Location ok, very noisy.

The hotel is very nice and the rooms are very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. But our room overlooked a run-down courtyard in the neighborhood, which was disappointing for the price of a 5 star hotel. The hotel relies too much on the cruise lines booking the before and after stays. We would stay there again if it was $150/night less.
