We just returned from a week at the Silken Gran hotel Havana, What a fantastic hotel, We payed £646 for 7 nights in a basic room, it was a lovely cool room with a nice view overlooking the street, I was a little skeptical about staying there as i heard the metro underneath was proving an issue for some guests but this seriously isn't bad as some people have made out, we were staying on the 3rd floor and you can barely here it.
The hotel itself is very impressive along with its rooftop pool which was bigger than first thought, there are also some impressive views which can be seen, every single member of staff we came across spoke English and couldn't help us more even if they tried, they made us feel very welcome , the gentleman on reception even lifted our bags up to the room even though we said it was OK,the location of the hotel is just right, its bang in the center, 10 minutes from Las Ramblas and 10 minutes on the metro to the beach/port.
If you are staying at the hotel on a friday/saturday you must attend the Live Jazz as it really adds to the atmosphere. We didn't eat at the hotel but had a few cocktails, Yes they were expensive but they really put there effort into them.
Overall this hotel is absolutely fantastic, the best i have stayed in, i would recommend this hotel to anyone. We loved it so much we are booking again for next summer.
Tip: If you want to head down to the beach, head to the "girona" metro station on the next street from the hotel, it costs 1.40 for 1 single on any route on the line, get off at barcelonetta and your there.
