“Beautiful Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2006

Having read many poor reviews on the hotel accommodation in Havana we were not expecting much but we where pleasantly surprised!

The hotel itself is in an great central location close to all the sights! The rooms are basic but clean and beautifully decorated!

The service was excellent and all the staff where really helpful and happy!

We will definitely stay again next time we are in Havana!!!

I have been in Cuba serveral times, and my favorite place among all the beautiful places in Cuba, is Havana Viaja(Old Havana) with is romantic colonial buildings.

El Comendador is one of these buildings. It´s tasteful decorated and is placed in a quiet sidewalk to the more busy, but beautiful Calle Obrapia. There is no noise from the street.

The rooms is very romantic decorated with new but colonial style furnitures. The doors is blue, which make you feel that you are in a greek island - in a positive way. The service is execellent- they will do everything for you and they treat you as you are part of their family. It is one of these places I would prefer if I should be on a honymoon. You are in the middle of Havana, but you feel you are on a island on your own - quiet and peaceful.

At Hotel Valencia where the breakfast is served, you can also get tapas and other Spanish crusines.
The breakfast is not worth mention, and that is a general observation I have made on all hotels around Cuba - spartanious and dull.

But I can strongly recommend this hotel for it´s quietness and beautiful decorated rooms and friendly service and good value for money!
