We just spent a week at this hotel and loved the Old World decor and ambiance. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. Its location across from Parque Central couldn't have been more convenient and we walked everywhere. We could even return part way through the day and go

We went here a couple of times during the day for a light lunch. Sandwiches were ok but hit and miss whether you actually got served. Good place for people watching but annoying with band coming around after a couple of songs to ask for money.

This hotel is staffed with warm, friendly, well educated and thoughtful people throughout. Like most of Cuba, the food there isn’t impressive but the high ceilinged lobby dining area is pleasant for breakfast and tea, if a trifle boisterous. The guest room we had was recently

Dear MarinTraveler1: Thanks for choosing our hotel and share your comments with us, we really appreciate it, they are really important for us to continue improving our services. We are sorry for the inconvenience of the noise and please accept our apologies for that. Isolation of the rooms is something we have in plans for this year although we wanted to explain that live music in our hotel is only until midnight. We would like you come back soon to our hotel and become this place your favorite in Havana. Best regards, Ania Mastrapa Pérez Public Relations Hotel Inglaterra

Joannie, first of all, excellent choice. The hotel is old but is impecable. For sure there are better hotels in Havana, but they would cost a lot more. And for sure there are a lot of worts options. So, I was nicely surprised. The only thing are bad are the toiletres. Bring your own. The food is pretty decent. The breakfast is good enough and for sure you are going to find something the you like...the pastries are home made, sometimes they have some lack of "finesse", but the taste is good. For my surprise, not too much sugar. More like the european taste than the american...The best of all of this hotel is the location. You can do almost everythinh in a walking distance. And all the old cars are parked at the front of this hotel...4 last tips: the rooms are incredible cold, go to the rooftop of Inglaterra and also, just cross the street and go to the Manzana, the best rooftop in Havana. Dont worry, the drinks are really affordable, like 6 - 8 US dollars. And also, stop by at the famous El Floridita for a great daiquiri...I miss Havana.

I gave them my UK visa credit card at check in to set up a tab for spend in the hotel, which worked OK. I exchanged GBP currency at hotel although rate is not as good as at government exchange bureaux at airport. You might get a worse exchange rate for USD. If you use cab from airport to hotel, you will need CUC to pay the driver, so you may need to change at airport.

"It is probably quieter in rooms at the back but you get a great view of street activity and classic cars from the balconies on the front."
"Didn't stay here"
"best views are the rooms with a balcony."
"Be prepared for rude, surly staff who do not care about their guests"
"Higher rooms offer more quiet atmosphere."
