This is a must for a visitor. The architecture and culture engulfs you. Don't rush thru. There sounds and smeells. Beautiful historic area. We ate at a few places both were great. There are may pick one and enjoy.

Old Havana was slightly different due to COVID-19, but still Havana. Cuban spirit, despite masks, was still there.

Horrific service
Sep 2020 • Couples
Firstly we got greeted with a warm welcome on the door but once we was in it was like we was invisible. Staff continuously walked past us not making any eye contact. In the end we had to ask the door staff to get somebody to serve us which then took another 10 minutes for a waitress to come to us. Exactly the same when asking for the bill!!! Staff was more interested about entertaining themselves and dancing behind the bar.

Only good thing I will say David delivered excellent service
Aug 2020 • Friends
Came here for my friends birthday. Had tapas ( 9 dishes) and a few gins recommended by David which was amazing, we told him what we like and he would make excellent recommendations he didn't disappoint excellent customer service from him.

Food.. Unfortunately tasteless and that's 9 dishes.. None of the dishes were " wow"
I guess if you drunk and want a bite to eat it's ok, just not coming out to dinner.
The calamari was very chewy we left that and the bread was hard.
Potatoes were cold.
Other things were edible

Stay in old Havana... it is so beautiful, has so much character and history. The architecture is amazing It has such diverse neighbourhoods. The restaurants are great... not the tourist ones. The shops are great. The people are amazing. The music an drew buskers are alive and thumping and so talented. Such a huge range of accommodation. Great free walking tours available and so much to see and do. Love it

Daily free trips to Havana courtesy of the hotel
Oct 2019
Last year my g/f and I stayed at a lovely hotel called "Panarama" located just outside of Havana , probably a twenty- five minute drive to the old town of Havana. The modern Panarama Hotel has a glassed- in elevator and rooms were very spacey with a refrigerator, air and modern bathrooms. Our room looked out to the large pool and bar around the back. The complementary breakfast was huge with plenty of meats, eggs, fruit , cakes etc. Often they had a small Cuban group play in the evenings. One certainly doesn't need a car while there, as there are plenty of taxis in the area and outside the hotel. Prices for a single was under one hundred dollars. There was a large shopping area across the street,though food was in short supply and expensive We often walked to various restaurants in the area. Havana was amazing and we went daily, photographing the areas and people. Usually we headed to Obispo Street which is closed to traffic and there were endless people, bars and restaurants. Hemingway spent much of his time while writing his novels at some of the hotels there. Change your Cuban Cu.s Your money will go a long way (25-1) in the local currency. Changers are on the street but be discrete and careful. . An ice cream goes for ten cents as compared to cu.s. which easily is one to two dollars ( tourist price) The Hotel Panorama offered free daily trips into the city .We usually tipped the driver who picked us up at a special location, and took us back to the hotel.

Fantastic free walking tour on our first day in Havana
Jul 2019
Definitely recommended - just bring some good walking shoes and drink as the tour is long, but we’ll worth it!
