Raquel Hotel, Havana, Cuba

This old hotel is a wonderful example of Havana at her finest…It could have been wrapped in tissue paper it is still so intact. I’m not sure what the rooms are like, but you’ll be paying around A$250 for one of their standards

This is the blurb from their site….

“The historic city hotel was established in 1860 and was then located on Calle Amistad. Around 1888, it was relocated to its present position on the busy corner of Prado and Neptuno streets. In 1911 the hotel was completely rebuilt, and when it reopened it was regarded by the press of the day as the most modern hotel in the city and ranked amongst the top eleven hotels in Latin America. The hotel of today combines modern and colonial elements in its architecture to create a wonderful unity of present and traditional styles. . There are 54 standard rooms, three suites, and six junior suites available, in addition to a lobby area with a reception desk manned around the clock, a hotel safe, a cloakroom, a currency exchange facility, and lift access. Guests at this air-conditioned establishment may also take advantage of the restaurant, the two cafes, the bar, and the selection of shops.”
