Hotel Inglaterra

Havana, Cuba

Virgin rating

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.

We took this hotel for the location and décor, boy did we get it correct. Brilliant choice I have to say. Walking distance to everything that you need to see on that side of the river. And a classically built building. Frank at reception is brilliant at his job nothing is to much trouble for him. Rest of the staff are equally as helpful. … Read more
We took this hotel for the location and décor, boy did we get it correct. Brilliant choice I have to say. Walking distance to everything that you need to see on that side of the river. And a classically built building. Frank at reception is brilliant at his job nothing is to much trouble for him. Rest of the staff are equally as helpful. Remember this building is 130 year's old, but it is holding its own in Havana. Thanks to all the staff if any of you read these reviews. God bless. I'll be back sometime.

I stayed at Inglaterra and it was fine. The real treat was the rooftop, a beautiful view and really inexpensive drinks. I hosted a few small parties up there, they even let me supply my own band of locals. Last March (2022) I wanted to go back to the rooftop but alas the entire hotel is closed.

They have a rooftop terrace which was closed so we went across road. Great location entrance hall nice such a shame about the rest. Read less

I had long wanted to stay at the Inglaterra, it's such an iconic Cuban hotel and when the time finally came it didn't disappoint. The best things about it are the location and the very cheerful and friendly staff. Rooms have lovely high ceilings and a very restful feel along with great views. I had an excellent corner room with 2 balconies, one looking over the Parque Central and another over San Rafael. You really feel you are in the middle of things at the Inglaterra, being just a short walk away from so many historic sites. Vivian and the staff did everything to make me feel comfortable. Highly recommended! Read less
