We stayed in Hotel Florida for one night only in February, arrived in the evening and were told we were lucky - we got a free upgrade to a Suite! Probably our booked room was gone by the time we arrived but who cares. The suite was amazing, very stylish colonial interior, reception and bedroom, two balconies, nice bath (wet ceiling but hey, we are in Havana).
The architecture of the building is amazing, spent an hour or so exploring, loved the inner court.
In terms of the noise from the salsa bar, yes, it was loud (even on 2nd floor), the birds started singing at 5am, the external unit of air cons was noisy too and obviously it doesn't help if you turn it off (the exterior unit keeps on running). These are complains from some people who missed the point and chose the wrong destination I would say! If you are in Havana, go out till late, dance, drink, enjoy the amazing atmosphere - if you do so you won't even care about the little lack of comfort I mentioned, and will sleep like a baby.
The breakfast is kind of poor, but you will learn to appreciate it and take as much as you can to keep you going all day as it is difficult to find anything to eat in the city.
