I was having problems booking a hotel for my trip of 30 days, so I thought I would try a few hotels .. just to see what they were like..
The Hotel Terral is a great hotel.. they say its a 4 star but I would say that it was a 5 star Hotel..
The I have stayed at most of the hotels in Havana and this has to be the best I have been to.
It does not have the old age characteristics of the National hotel or any of the older ones, it is a new modern Hotel.
I got a room on the 4th floor (401)..
The elevator is small but modern with no problems.
The room was very large with a walk-in closet, a separate wash area with two sinks a bath area and a very large bedroom with a large bed and couch.
The water is hot and plentiful, I loved the shower and Jacuzzi.
The bed was queen size and very comfortable with lots of pillows (10) plus extras in the closet.
The couch was large and very comfortable to sit on while watching the TV.
The small fridge was filled with everything plus there were packages of nuts to nibble on if you wanted too.
The balcony was wide and the full length of the room with 2 lounges on it.
There was very little noise from the Malecon. You really had to strain to hear it.
The breakfast was quickly served and well presented.
The chicken dinner I had one night. was one of the best meals I have had in Havana.
The faults of the Hotel.. Yes.. there were a few..
I was out one night and returned at 4:00 am. The shutters over the doors were down and no one was in sight.. After about 5 minutes of shaking the shutters, reception appeared and let me in.. I don't know why everything was locked uptight..
The tables in the restaurant do need glass tops, as another has already said, and I would suggest the seats get a cushion, as the wooden slats look nice but are hard to sit on for any length of time.
The staff were very good with the exception of asking me 2 or 3 times if I wanted the same thing.. They seemed to be a bit confused as to who was serving me.. I guess it was a case of to much service, and that is a rare thing in Cuba.
Would I recommend this Hotel?? Yes.. I would, but remember it is a bit of a walk to the old section of town and it is a very modern Hotel.
I took a few photos of the room I was in but they are not great..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Terral Hotel is the first hotel of the Habaguanex s.A. Company located in Malecon Habanero. It is described as an urban hotel, modern and avant-garde design. The decoration of the building was conducted by a group of Cuban artisans, using black wood as primary and predominant element.
