Hotel Inglaterra

4* out of 5 stars

When in Cuba, experience history at its most profound. Hotel Inglaterra is the oldest hotel in Cuba, founded almost 140 years ago, in 1875. One of the classiest hotels in Havana, it's definitely a magnificent place to stay when in town, one that helps you sense the magic Havana lives on. To some, it may feel more like home than they've expected – La Inglaterra in Spanish means England.

The hotel building's value to Cuba's heritage is unquestionable – it has been declared a National Monument. Its neoclassical façade fits harmoniously into the landscape of the great city of Havana; its stained-glass windows, heraldic symbols, original mosaics from Alicante in Spain and grilles brought from Seville add that touch of originality into this beauty you won't stop taking pictures of.

The hotel's central location is ideal for discovering the hidden secrets of Cuba's capital. Close to the graceful Paseo del Prado and Havana's Grand Theatre, as well as the city's many other breathtaking sites for sightseeing, shopping, dining and simply just being, the Hotel Inglaterra is perfect for those willing to experience the passionate Cuban vibes. Most of its historical rooms that come in all shapes and sizes overlook Havana's Central Park.

At the hotel's à la carte restaurant The Colonial you can try the local Creole cuisine or opt for an international option. The La Sevillana cafeteria is open 24 hours a day.
