Me and Richard Danks
We’re bang in the middle of Havana’s old town.
Excursion to El Nicho. This is about the point my blood turned to rum.
The main atrium. Pretty epic, especially after a 10 hour flight and a couple dozen sleeping pills. This courtyard leads out to the piano bar ‘Maragato’ and the restaurant ‘Floridana.’
Mr Richard Danks working from the elegant lobby. The chequered marble was almost pornographic.
Hotel Florida don’t really fuck about in terms of grandeur.
All marble everything.
Obligatory hotel bathroom selfie.
Havana essentials. Rum and toothpaste is the new gin and juice.
Attention-seeking marble woman.
Highs + Lows
The interiors of the rooms and the atrium are phenomenal example of colonial Havana architecture. You can literally feel the history.
They will gladly help book lunch, dinner, excursions etc. from the lobby.
The breakfast was standard, not special

Colonial Luxury Hotel
Grand. Very very grand.
Havana Old Town. The heard of the historic district.
Live music nightly in the piano bar. Cigars-a-go-go.
- Year Opened
- Designed By
This is a colonial elegant structure that dates back many many years.
Yes, complimentary continental breakfast
Yes, a very simple one.
Very cheap rum. Cheaper than the mixers. You have been warned.
Gotta pay by the hour, but that's standard in Cuba...even for locals.
Bring them, but it's a quiet place that does not cater to kids. If your kids love marble, you've come to the right place.
