Meet me at the Saratoga Hotel, Prado 121, Havana. Facing Fraternidad Park.
Offers guests the ultimate in service and comfort.
While in Havana visit our famous Sidewalk Cafe. The most colorful place for a glorious evening.
Delicious food, drinks of the best.

I am looking for a hotel, preferably in Havana Vieja or within walking distance of Capitolio.  Should be clean, with hot & cold running water, air conditioning, fan, attached bathroom, etc.  Price range per room - Convertible Peso or US$35 to 40 per night.  Initially for 2 nights from November 11.  Check out 13 November.  Then again upon return from Isla de Juventud on 17 or 18 November, 2004 for 3 or 4 nights.  Can anyone suggest please?

  35-40 dollars a night???.....Forget Cuba and go somewhere in Central America.This is Havana,not “El poŽ dunk” Banana Republic !!!!!....
  The elegant but soon to need a facelift Hotel Plaza,abt. 80 USD is the best deal.Do not even show up to Havana without a reservation !!!! Other good Hotels on Parque Central and on the Prado are The Parque Central(hotel),Inglaterra,Sevilla and although not yet open ,the 5 star Saratoga,across from the capitolio…..
  You could try the gorgeous Casa del Cientifico on Paseo del Prado…..I think they only have tepid water and only a fan and shared bathrooms.last I saw,55.00 per night.In a gorgeous turn of the century mansion.GOOD LUCK !!!
  As for Gerona (Isla de la Juventud)....Good luckX2 !!!!
