We stayed for seven nights in April 2013. I requested room 819 when I booked and it’s a room with amazing view. The room is looking down the Prado and can see the harbour and the light house. The room has an amazing view at dawn. The hotel itself is old and nostalgic but slightly overpriced. It is just round the corner from Parque Central and Capitol Building. The location is ideal for sightseeing. The room has TV, AC, Fridge and a Safety box. The reception has money changing facility. The roof top restaurant has amazing view. Sloppy Joe at the back of the hotel is an excellent bar with good choice of cocktails, tapas and sandwiches.
You must put aside 25CUC for exit tax at airport. Also a Travel card is a must – this can be obtained from cubadirect.co.uk. Havana is an amazing city. There are Hop on Hop off buses T1 and T3 leaves from outside Hotel Inglaterra costing 5CUC for a round trip. T1 covers most of major sights around North West of city including the Revolution Square. T3 covers North East covering number of beaches. T2 bus is no longer in service. Click http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g147271-s302/Havana:Cuba:Getting.Around.html for more useful info.
