On Calle Oficios the view from street beclons you to enquire and explore within as it looks into a charming and green courtyard. It is a hotel but our interest was to taste an authentic award winning paella. And it did not disappoint,either in taste, ingredients and quantity. Good friendly service if just a little slow - but a paella...

Old and traditional hotel right in the centre of things on the pedestrised road between two of the main squares in the old town. All you need in Havana is on your doorstep. We had a lovely big room facing the internal courtyard. Two not so good things - the toilet is off the bedroom but only separated by a...

From David the bell hop to William at the front desk...wonderful service and hospitality which only added to the fun and ambiance! I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend the property. It was the perfect way to end our travels!

What a nice little hotel. Friendly staff, which is not standard in hotels in Havana, with good rooms that are large and clean. As anything in Havana it can be a bit noisy outside as the neighbourhood wakes up around 6 AM. Recommended. Even the restaurant, which specialises in Paella is good and located in the courtyard.

As usual when you go to Havana it is very important to stay at the Colonial city and not to look for accommodation in another part of the city. A lack of taxies and a lot of things to do at night - that's the reason why I like to stay at some very modest, clean, cozy hotels in the...

We had the pleasure to stay in this history-infused building—which offers a stunning picturesque courtyard adorned with greenery and beautiful tiling and a front desk manned by someone who could pass as Obama’s twin brother (Seriously!!!). The rooms (accessible by stairs over 2 floors) are somewhat simple, but have A/C and even cable, with US-CNN (!). Breakfast was included in...

The desk lady is rude and awful, but do not let her rudeness detract from your view of this hotel, or of Havana. Ask for Mario or Daniel if you need any assistance during your stay. Hostal Valencia is a gem, conveniently located at Plaza San Francisco, close to cafes and nice restaurants. It is a two minute walk to...

We booked a couple of nights at the end of our land tour in Cuba, this hotel was great value for money and very well restored and cared for. Great location in Havana Vieja and good food available too. Have already recommend to others and will stay there or similar Hanaguanex again when I return to Havana.

The hotel is rated as 3 star, 1.5 would be a generous estimate. We stayed here at the beginning and end of outer Cuba trip, on two different rooms, Silla and Alicante. One at the side of the hotel and the other at the front. If you want to sleep do not get a room at the front, it is...

Best location in Havana vieja, within short walking distance to most attractions Havana vieja has to offer and yet in a quiet and pleasant location. Charming colonial building arranged around a central patio which accommodates a nice restaurant. The hotel is tastefully renovated, not to perfection , reserving all past character and charm. High ceiling, painted walls, lovely patio etc....
