Hostal La Habanera Reception
La Habanera is a charming and budget-priced hotel on the main street, just steps from the main plaza, is housed in a recently restored colonial-era building dating from 1867. For better or worse, the original colonial tile-work has been replaced with rather soulless contemporary ceramics, but beautiful hardwood doors are a lovely touch.
The location is a major plus for sightseeing, but it comes at a price: At night noise from the partying in the square and the nearby rooftop La Terraza cabaret can wake the dead.
Lofty ceilings assist air-conditioning in keeping things cool in the 10 bedrooms that surround an atrium courtyard, and four upstairs rooms open onto narrow balconies.
Modest yet tasteful tropical-themed rattan furnishings and lively autumnal color schemes in the bedrooms contrast with simply colonial-style decor and clinical whites in public arenas.
All rooms have lofty ceilings, plus two twin beds – so honeymooners should plan accordingly. Four rooms share a balcony over the plaza. Satellite TVs offer four international channels, and modern bathrooms sparkle.

The 12 rooms are all spacious, with high ceilings, bright patterned bed linens, rattan headboards, and sparkling tile floors. All come with two twin beds, and for a budget option, you'll be surprised to find a large television, with four international cable channels. The best rooms are the four that share a long broad veranda overlooking Calle Maceo and the Central Park.
