The Sevilla Biltmore, as it was known before the Revolution, was one of the establishments (from 1939) owned & run by Havana’s Mafia network. Santo Trafficante Junior had shares in it, & its principal owner, the Corsican-Uraguayan Amletto Battisti, was the kingpin of "La Bolita", the city’s lottery racket, the Oriental Park racecourse, & the Casino Nacional.

The Sevilla hotel has a rather curious layout but its public areas are very attractive. The prevailing decorative style is, as one might expect, Moorish-Andalusian, with a profusion of lustre-glazed cuerda seca tiles.

The lobby and courtyard bar are welcoming and the Hotel Mercure Sevilla is one of the only three hotels in the area with a pool (the other two are the Parque Central and the Saratoga).

The Hotel Sevilla is located just off the elegant Paseo del Prado, the public promenade which links Parque Central with the Malecon Ocean Drive; so is ideally placed for exploration of Havana’s historical centre.

The rooms are very satisfactory, but the very best part of the Mercure Sevilla, much frequented by those in the know, is its rooftop restaurant in what was once the hotel’s grand ballroom. It has wonderful views of the city & the sea, & if you can get a table next to one of the balconies you can revel in blissful ocean breezes on hot summer nights. The food is very good, owing, we assume, to the hotel’s French ownership.

Until about 2005 the hotel was known as Hotel Sofitel Sevilla.

Details of Standard Room  
Standard rooms at the Sevilla are delightful: light and spacious, with original Colonial furniture mixed with good replicas. The walls are rag-painted in sunny yellow, the curtains are bright and cheerful and the cool tiled floors a blessing to hot, weary sightseers’ feet. The clean, bright bathrooms are tiled in white and grey. There are excellent views over Havana from rooms on the higher floors.

Details of Standard Superior Room  
The Sevilla’s junior suites are a slight disappointment in terms of size, for although they have small sitting rooms separated from the bedrooms by a short corridor, the sizes of both sitting room and bedroom are fairly small. However the decorative style of both rooms and bathrooms is the same pretty combination of yellow and Provençal colours as that of standard rooms and there are some delightful touches of extra luxury such as the Empire style day beds upon which one feels virtually compelled to recline in a silk tunic, tossing one’s ringlets a la Meduse and requesting one’s partner to peel one another grape.

Guide to Old Havana
The heart and soul of Havana is the old town Habana Vieja, declared a Heritage of Mankind Site in 1982 by UNESCO. It was keen to preserve the beauty of its architecture and promote the historical importance of its role within the region.

The following are just some of the interesting places to visit: Plaza de Armas, centred around a statue of the patriot Cespedes and emcompassed by shaded marble benches and second-hand booksellers, is the first public square built in the city. Plaza de la Catedral is perhaps the most beautiful square in the Caribbean which is surrounded by examples of the finest baroque architecture in the country. El Templete, small neoclassical temple which marks the spot where the first Mass was said in 1519. Castillo de la Real Fuerza is one of the oldest forts in the Americas, it holds modern art exhibitions downstairs and the battlements afford good views over the harbour. Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, the seat of government and governor's residence was transferred from the fort to the built. The presidential palace and then the municipal palace until Castro seized power it is now Museo de la Ciudad de la Habana. Museo de Arte Colonial, fine palace constructed in 1720, its yellow courtyard and little-altered architectural features are complemented by a large collection of 17th- and 18th-century furniture. Calle Obispo is Old Havana's most important and smartest thoroughfare, pedestrianized with missile heads as bollards.
