As it was our first trip to Cuba I wasnt quite sure what to expect of anything, so we decided to stay in a hotel instead of a Casa Particulare (sp?). As it turns out, our reservation at the Hotel Raquel wasnt the best way to go so we left after only one night. Hotel Florida was full, but they really wanted to help us so they gave us a suite at the price of a regular room!! The hotel is amazingly beautiful, air conditioned, spotlessly clean, and the staff was incredibly helpful in every way without being pushy! Comfortable beds, hot water, the perfect location, and great food all added to what was a perfect experience in Havana!
The down side is the price of the rooms, which can be as high as many hotels here in Los Angeles.... but given the last minute accomodations, and the certainty of having a clean, close and nice place to sleep it was well worth it! We might be more adventurous when returning to Cuba, but will never not consider Hotel Florida!
