Historic Hotels
The Hostal Valencia was the first Old Havana mansion to be converted by the Office of the City Historian into an hotel. Originally constructed for Alderman Sotolongo, a member of Havana’s Town Council, a large part of the building had actually collapsed by the time it reached the head of the queue for restoration – the remainder was braced against surrounding edifices with a complicated structure of wooden scaffolding. Once this had been removed and the ruins consolidated, the collapsed section was rebuilt and balcony railings in this area have been left plain to indicate to architectural historians which part is restoration and which recreation. The Hostal Valencia is modest in style compared to establishments such as the Santa Isabel and the Saratoga, but its charm and very acceptable prices ensure an almost constant waiting list for bookings.

Entering the Valencia, one passes through impressive colonial portals to a large hall which in spite of having been built at the end of the eighteenth century has a distinctly seventeenth century atmosphere; this is carried on throughout the general layout of the house and such details as the terracotta-tiled staircase, enormous mahogany beams and cobbled courtyard which is framed by bright green ferns and long strands of malanga vine trailing down from the upper floors. The establishment’s two bars continue the general impression of antiquity with low ceilings and dim lighting so that one fully expects a pirate to come lurching out of the gloom clutching a half-drunk bottle of rum and muttering about dead men’s chests. The people who work at the Valencia are especially kind and helpful and greet clients like old friends, which they generally are as many people return to the hotel again and again. The restaurant on the corner is renowned for its huge iron pans of prizewinning paella and the coffee from the courtyard bar is sublime.

Detaļas Standard Room  
The 11 standard rooms at the Hotel Valencia are exceedingly welcoming. High-ceilinged with huge mahogany and cedar beams, most of them contain some original antique furniture as well as reproduction Colonial-style pieces and a couple have fragments of original eighteenth century mural paintings. They all have Spanish names (Jijona, Gandia, Valencia, etc.) and are decorated with Spanish memorabilia and old photographs of festivals all over the Iberian peninsula. The bathroom facilities are not luxurious – shower rooms and loos in separate tiled cubicles off the main rooms with basin units actually within the rooms – but standard rooms at the Valencia are outstanding value for their relatively low prices and there’s almost always a waiting list for bookings. All of the standard rooms are twin bedded.

Detaļas Junior Suite  
The three junior suites at the Valencia are named Alicante, Castellón and Alzira and all of them overlook Calle Oficios, Havana’s oldest street. The towering double doors to their balconies, vast sleeping areas, high ceilings, generous seating spaces and colonial furniture all emphasise the sense of history that permeates this wonderful old building.

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.
