Fodor's Expert Review Hostal Valencia
Calle de los Oficios 53, esq. de Calle Obrapía, Havana, 10100, Cuba
Although the bougainvillea-draped central patio is more reminiscent of Seville and Andalusia, the theme at this restored 18th-century mansion is really Valencia. Each room is named after a Valencian village or town—such as Jijona, Silia, or Alzira. Request the Morella Room, which has a private rooftop patio. Filled with beautiful colonial-style furniture and original ceramic tiles, the hotel makes quite an impression. Following the eastern Spain theme, the on-site restaurant is known (and named) for its paella.
- creative room design
- the showers tend to be on the weak and lukewarm side
- hotel doors close at midnight, making it impossible to experience Havana's nightlife
