We had 2 nights at the start of our visit to Cuba and 2 nights at the end. Walking into the hotel the first time showed what a magnificent old building it must have been in its prime. We had a standard room initially - big enough and appeared to have everything needed. But, the toilet wouldn't flush, the smoke... More

On entering the opulent courtyard of the Palacio you're immediately taken back to a time in Havana when luxury may have rivaled the European capitals. Hold tight. The rooms are simple with absolutely no frills (with the exception of a strong AC) and make no hints of a particularly luxurious stay. Coordinating the hot and cold water of the shower... More

Stayed 3 nights. Hotel Staff are all friendly. Breakfast on the terrace and nice harbour view. Pizza in the bar is bad taste. Neighberhood is not so good.

We stayed at palacio o' farrill 2 nights during our holyday in l'havana. The hotel is phantastic, an historic building located in the heart of old town havana. The rooms were huge and tidy. The only bad parts were the breakfast which I didn't find too much impressive and the fact that some of the room facilities were not fully... More

This hotel is in a good location for getting around the old town on foot. The neighborhood is safe and an easy two block walk to the old cathedral square. there are bars and restaurants close by. the rooms are a bit weathered, but generally comfortable. Water pressure was spotty for evening showers. The breakfast was average. One of the... More

Hi. My wife and I stayed here for a week. The location is very handy for the old town. As others have mentioned, the building is lovely especially the courtyard, where you can have breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, it was consistently poor (and I'll eat most things). I wasn't expecting European quality of bread/pastries etc but thought that the fruits... More

I loved this hotel, despite its flaws. Great old colonial palace with lovely courtyard to have drinks or breakfast and friendly staff (especially the doormen). Location is great too--in the heart of old Havana. As with most all Cuban hotels, the bathroom shower/tub wasn;t great (hot water, pressure, etc) but still it was a great value for the price. The...

We stayed at this hotel during our tour by Authentic Cuba. The hotel is located near many of the sights to see in Havana. The building itself is a restored house and is very impressive. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. Food is average. We stayed there for 2 different stays and both rooms were clean and comfortable. Only problem... More

Beautiful colonial building, charming interior courtyard with commanding stairway, stained glass, etc... The guestrooms varied - some better than others (bigger, updated...), some with small balconies & views. Friendly staff, music in the courtyard during meals and cocktails. Great location - everything in Old Havana is within walking distance, including the Malecon.

The building itself was very palatial and very nicely restored. The hotel staff were so wonderful and were so pleased to do anything for you. The rooms were huge and all quite different with windows and doors that could be opened to hear the roosters wake up call and the sounds of the streets. The bathrooms were interesting,, although very... More
