Hotel Inglaterra

Havana, Cuba

The hotel

Every bit the gilded old-world glamour you’d hope for in Havana, Hotel Inglaterra first opened its doors back in 1875. Since then it’s welcomed the rich and famous, drawn in by its authentic colonial styling, its legendary roof terrace (which features a grill bar for good measure), and its unbeatable location — facing Parque Central and just steps from guidebook favourites like the Capitolio, Gran Teatro, and the pedestrianised San Rafael boulevard. As well as the rooftop grill, there’s the breakfast venue El Colonial, the chilled-out La Sevillana café bar, and Gran Café el Louvre, a sidewalk sanctuary whose bohemian collection of patrons past have ranged from musicians to poets, and where today you can listen to live music as you watch Havana’s hubbub outside from one of its old cast iron seats.

Very nice hotel but they treat the Cuban clients badly. They do not let the Cubans in. I still thought that it had ended. They only let those who believe.When I told him why it can not happen, my friend told me to the door. is the manager who does not let the darkest

Charming old Havana hotel in a perfect location. Easy walking to most sites in central Havana. Don’t expect big modern spacious rooms. Closet is not full height so no long ball gowns or dresses/suits, We got a balcony room overlooking the square with views of the old vintage cars but also lots of street noise and live and loud music from the outdoor lobby bar. The noise did die down by 10 o'clock though. Backside of the hotel would be better for a light sleeper. The bathroom is tiny with no real space for your toiletries, best to have a hanging traveling kit. Nice towels but no wash cloth so bring your own. Air conditioner is quiet, at least quieter than the noisy street. Whoever designed the place opted for much more spacious hallways and antechambers than in the room itself. Complimentary liter bottle of water, first 1 hour of wifi, and 2 drinks per room which can be redeemed in the top floor bar or off the lobby. Staff were friendly but business like. There is money exchange downstairs at the front desk with the same rates as the banks. The in-room safe opens with your key so no personalized way to lock it but it is roomy enough for my large iPad Pro and my 13 inch MacBook Air both stored leaning in the back after some maneuvering. Seems to be popular with large tour groups. Read less

We stayed here for 1 night while we explored Havana. We were able to check in early even though we hadn’t booked it. Lovely clean room with air conditioning. Roof top terrace was amazing especially at night with the live band. Would definitely stay here again.

This was our first visit to Havana so we wanted to experience the city as it should be. This hotel is right on the edge of old Havana was just what we wanted - original architecture and genuine Cuban atmosphere. The hotel is a little dated but that is what Havana is! Breakfast was fairly basic and the service could be very slow. It could take several requests for more coffee! The hotel really needs to improve on this. There is a roof top bar which is great with views across old Havana. Please note that hotel can be noisy at night with live music and lots of people close by the hotel. BUT this is why we chose the Inglaterra for some authentic Havana. The Bar was limited and we were over charged on one occassuion so take note of your bill. Overall an authentic Cuban hotel all within walking distance of old Havana. A great hotel to experience the city. Read less

The hotel was in a great location, it was very easy to get anywhere from there. The rooms were comfortable. The WiFi wasn’t great and you had 1 hr free and had to pay for each additional hour, but they often ran out of WiFi cards. The rooftop bar has a great vibe, with a view, live music and a good crowd. The buffet breakfast was decent also.
