Hotel Inglaterra Havana - Getting there

One of Havana's oldest Hotels, Iglaterra, also enjoys one of the best locations, opposite Parque central, next door to the Gran Teatro, el Capitolio, within a 5-minute walk to calle Obispo which leads to the colonial part of town where guest find an extensive selections restaurants, bars, terraces and of course historical sites.

Visitors to Havana generally arrive by international flight to Jose Marti International Airport or by convenient domestic flight from elsewhere in Cuba. From Havana's Jose Marti International Airport you have the option to take a taxi or convenient hotel transfer* to your hotel. However if you are about to explore larger parts of the country, renting a car offers you lots of flexibility and a great sense of freedom. Some of Cuba's most popular destinations can be easily reached by car, the roads are generally in good condition and traffic jams are still a rarity.

From the hotel you can walk to all the interesting sites in Central and old Havana including El Capitolio, El Prado, the famous sea boulevard El Malecon and of course the colonial architecture of old Havana including mansions, palaces and impressive fortifications. Other ways to explore Havana are by booking one of many exciting excursions or by boarding the "hop on hop off" open top sightseeing bus that stops close to the Inglaterra hotel.

The restaurants in Old Havana increasingly notice the stiff competition of the private restaurants or "paladars", which have greatly improved the overall level of culinary offerings in the capital. Most of them are located in regular city streets all over town.

Nighttime is a great time in Havana. For Salsa dancing we recommend Casa de la Musica in Miramar where top salsa acts get the crowd moving. For a slightly lower key experience you can count old Havana bars where talented musicians often liven up the place. Music lovers will enjoy the Jazz venues in the Vedado district such as La Zorra y el Cuervo, the slightly more contemporary Jazz Café or El Gato Tuerto, which features different styles of traditional Cuban music including steamy Boleros and Trova.

Havana is one of the most cultural capitals of the Caribbean, which organizes many cultural festivals like the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema, the Habano Cuban Cigar Festival (Feb.-March), The International Ballet Festival of Havana (Oct.-Nov.) and the Havana Jazz festival (December).

Another big attraction, especially popular among the locals, is the Havana Carnival (Augustus) where Costumes, light, music and dance make for an interesting spectacle. In case you wish to plan your trip around any of these great events we suggest you check the exact dates in advance because they tend to slightly vary year by year.

*You can book a convenient collective or private transfer during the reservation process.
