MESON DE LA FLOTA Located in the old part of the city, away from the hassle and buzzle of the road traffic. It is a restaurant with 5 bedroom hotel. The restaurant serves decent food. There is a live band every night (sometimes during lunch as well)with flamenco dancing. The band reverberate throughout the neighbourhood from 8ish and stops at... More

Even though it's above a restaurant with a Flamenco show, the 5 room hotel was lovely. Beautiful rooms with high ceilings , large wood doors, big bathrooms. Very friendly staff serving both hotel and restaurant. Great location to Plaza Vieja and other attractions. Felt a little like old Spain charm. Flemenco dancers were a nice alternative to salsa.

What we loved most about this hotel was its location - right in the middle of the old town (the most tourist friendly, most looked after area of the city). It's right between a number of nice plazas where there are plenty of nice bars and restaurants. The hotel was good value for money - we had a nice big... More

Close to the heart of the old city, traditional dancing is good to watch but goes on most nights until about eleven pm. Staff very friendly, food is good and reasonably priced. Rooms are spacious clean, maintenance is not on the top of the priority list, yet everything works. Beds are average and bar downstairs serves a good selection of... More

We stopped here for a late lunch, and caught the end of a flamenco show, which seemed OK. Fairly standard tourist menu at tourist prices. Portions were a decent size. Staff were friendly enough, but I suspect they had had a busy lunchtime, because the waiters all disappeared while we were eating and we had to get the bar staff... More

The first 20 minutes were surprised about our reservation, rooms large but reeked of sewage , too expensive for such an accommodation.Seek immediate casa particular or much more expensive hotel , no heat as the casa particular , I am not satisfied

This inn has five rooms upstairs, very comfortable and nice decorated. Breakfast was included but not very special. Evening program in the restaurant was very good, I loved the Flamenco show. To make sure the guests could sleep, the show ended around 22.00 hrs. Nice staff who was very helpful and friendly to me.

Did not even know that it was a hotel, but it is a good restaurant choice.Had lunch there as we were walking in Old Havana. Nice ambiance and great Spanish wine list though a bit expensive. The food was good and well priced especially if you consider the 7 persons Flamenco band/dancers.

We got one of the 5 rooms they have. Upstairs from the restaurant. No check in desk or reception. You just go to the bar and say you have booked a room. And what a room! Must have been 7-8 meters to the ceiling. Spacious and nice furniture. The bathroom was a dream. Both bathtube and shower. all with golden... More

I stayed 4 nights in the hotel and as my heading indicates it is a very nice hotel with very few rooms. Breakfast starting tropical juice and fruit salad was great. The flamenco at night was a bonus. It started at 8 and ended at 10 so we did not lose sleep. Location perfect, right in the center of the... More
