Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Florida in Old Havana. I am poco a poco researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel’s ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.
My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.
You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.
Best wishes for 2008
