  • The Hotel Palacio O’Farrill is a terrifically grand neoclassical mansion standing on the corner of Cuba and Chacon Streets near the port of Havana. Its owner, Don Ricardo O’Farrill y O’Daly, made his fortune in the slave trade and owned several large sugar mills. The entrance hall of his house is almost ludicrously impressive, with a toweringly high ceiling and vast iron-studded polished door.

    The Palacio reopened in 2002 with each floor reflects a different period: the first floor is 18th-century in style; style; the second incorporates 19th-century elements; and the third-floor rooms have a modern, 20th-century look.

    Room Description

    Firm mattresses and well equipped bathrooms with deep soaking tubs mean you can get comfortable in the huge standard rooms here without feeling like you’re in a museum.  The suites are huge with balconies opening onto Old Havana streets. Nice touches abound such as coffee table books, antique lamps and cane rocking chairs.

    Location:

    Palacio O’ Farrill Hotel, located on a corner in Old Havana, near the picturesque Bay of Havana and Cathedral Square, is a perfect example of neoclassical architecture, in vogue at the dawn of the 19th Century.
