After having read some bad reviews I was worried about my choice. But the reality had proved to be the opposite. If you are in search of the true feeling of old time luxury, this is a place to be. Absolutely beautiful outside and inside, high ceilings, very tasteful renovation with old touches, like antique elevator, ceramic tile flooring, mosaics everywhere, etc. Good helpful staff, good breakfast, and it was incredible that after the breakfast they did the survey, I pointed out that they needed to bring true Havana fresh bread instead of unedible international version for toasts, and to my surprise, the very next day they indeed delivered the local bread! Bathrooms are in good shape. We did have large room with two balconies overlooking Amargura street. It really made us feel like we were right in the middle of Havana life!
Romantic terrace on the roof is a perfect place to hang out. The view from the terrace is not as great as from Ambos Mundos, but the last one recently had been renovated and it lost all the old charm, becoming like any other terrace in the world, while Raquel terrace is something special.
Do not miss Cheese and wine cafe exactly opposite the entrance to this hotel, good local and Spanish cheeses, wine from Chile and Spain.
