Nigel's Special Hotels
Founded in 1875, the Inglaterra is Cuba’s oldest hotel and has been declared a National Monument. It was exceedingly popular in the nineteenth century and is still favoured by visitors who particularly enjoy hanging out in its covered café, having drinks or sandwiches on tables individually decorated by Cuban contemporary artists and watching the world go by.

A hiss through the potted plants could signal your chance to buy a coin with Che on it, or a newspaper, or rather more exotic wares. But if that vexes you there is always the wonderful Seville-style tiled bar to visit, with its gilded flamenco-dancer statue, thought to be of the celebrated nineteenth century Spanish courtesan La Belle Otero.

The rest of the ground floor of the Inglaterra is also lavishly decorated, with chandeliers, stained glass, ornate wrought iron, marble floors and moulded ceilings.

The pavement café has a distinguished history. It used to be known as La Acera del Louvre (the pavement of the Louvre café which stood on the site) and became a meeting place for supporters of Cuban independence from Spain. A prominent Spaniard was even converted to their cause on the site – on 27th November 1871, when the Spanish military captain Don Nicolás Estévanez, heard the shots of eight innocent medical students being executed he broke his sword in two and renounced his military career with the words ‘Humanity and justice are more important than my fatherland’. Stirring stuff, and although the Inglaterra isn’t one of Havana’s most shipshape hotels it is extremely popular for its evocative atmosphere and location.

Rooms at the Inglaterra are cosy rather than sleek, but given the age of the building it would be churlish to expect gleaming sophistication. The rooms come in all shapes and sizes and those facing the street are more spacious than those facing into the building’s courtyards.

Interiors are rather chintzy, with rose-strewn frills and flounces on curtains and bedspreads. The chandeliers are horrid but the old built-in cupboards are endearing. The modern furniture is slightly bashed about but the colonial rocking chairs found in some rooms are attractive. The original tiled floors are very pretty.

Please note none of the rooms at the Inglaterra are double-glazed. Please be prepared for a certain amount of ambient racket from canaries in cages, passing traffic and voluble Cubans.

Guide to Vecā Havana
Havanas sirds un dvēsele ir vecā pilsēta Habana Vieja, kas UNESCO 1982. gadā deklarēja par cilvēces mantojumu. Tā vēlējās saglabāt tās arhitektūras skaistumu un paaugstināt tās vēsturiski nozīmigo lomu reģionā.

Tālāk ir norādītas tikai dažas interesantas vietas: Plaza de Armas , kuras centrā atrodas patriota Cespedes statuja un ir aptverta ar ēnainiem marmora soliem un lietotu grāmatu tirgotājiem, tā ir pirmais publiskais laukums, kas bija uzcelts pilsētā. Plaza de la Catedral , iespējams, ir visskaistākais Karību jūras krastā, ko ieskauj labākās baroka arhitektūras piemēri valstī. El Templete , mazs neoklasicisma templis, kas atzīmē vietu, kur 1519. gadā notika pirmā mesa. Castillo de la Real Fuerza ir viena no vecākajām Amerikas fortēm, kurā tagad atrodas mūsdienu mākslas izstādes, kas izvietotas lejā un nodrošina labu skatu pāri ostai. Palacio de los Capitanes Generales , valdības atrašanās vieta un gubernatora dzīvesvieta tika pārcelta no forta ēkā. Tās bija prezidenta pils un vēlāk pašvaldības pils līdz brīdim, kad Castro uzņēma varu, tagad tas ir Museo de la Ciudad de la Habana. Museo de Arte Colonial , skaists pils, kas bija celts 1720. gadā, to dzelteno pagalmu un mazliet mainītas arhitektūras iezīmes, papildina liela 17. un 18. gadsimta mēbeļu kolekcija. Calle Obispo vecā Havanā tā vissvarīgākā un gudrāka caurbrauktuve ar gājēju pārejām un raķešu galviņām kas aizvieto stabus.
