  • The Hostal Valencia was the first Old Havana mansion to be converted by the Office of the City Historian into a hotel. Originally constructed for Alderman Sotolongo, a member of Havana’s Town Council, a large part of the building had actually collapsed by the time it reached the head of the queue for restoration.

    The Valencia is decked out like a Spanish posada (inn), with hanging vines, doorways big enough to ride a horse through and a popular on-site paella restaurant. With a bit of imagination, you can almost see the ghosts of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza floating through the hallways. Right in the middle of the historical core and with a good price this hostel is an excellent old world choice, with good service and plenty of atmosphere. Book early since this is generally full all year round. Highly recommended.

    Room description

    Simple, yet very charming rooms are set around a central courtyard garden with lush tropical plants. Upstairs is definitely to be preferred. The big rooms have marble floors and soaring, exposed beam ceilings, and historic details like brass bathroom fixtures or antique phones. Beds are a little hit-or-miss.

    Location:

    The Valencia Inn, located in a privileged corner just 200 meters from the Plaza de Armas (Arms Square).
