There is nowhere in the world quite like Havana and a trip to Cuba wouldn't be complete without a few days exploring its cobbled streets. Crumbling yet elegant, exotic and vibrant, it has escaped the consumer driven trappings of chain restaurants and shopping malls and remains an open air museum lost in time. The old quarter of Havana dates from 1515 and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's centre has mainly been pedestrianised which makes it a pleasure to stroll around.A number of colonial houses have been sensitively converted into charming hotels with plenty of atmosphere and retaining many of the original features. All the hotels mentioned are located in the historic, old part of town. We have listed our favourites, but if you have a hotel in mind which does not appear please let us know.To plan your Havana holiday, call our Cuba specialists today for more information.
