Palacio O´Farrill Information


Perhaps one of the main charms of Hotel Palacio O'Farrill is the neoclassical beauty of what was the residence of don José Ricardo O'Farrill y O'Daly, a wealthy merchant from the Irish county of Longford. O'Farrill was involved in the slave trade and owner of sugar mills and arrived in Havana in 1715 and founded one of the wealthiest families of the colonial era.

Too expensive considering facilities, food and service. Theoretically well located, near to La Habana vieja (downtown) but the corner in which hotel is placed is full of annoying people (during all both day and night)

Room Number:
207

Arrival:
Ok

Rooms:
Too dark, and dirty

Restaurants and Bars:
Low food quality

Big rooms, surprisingly not as noisy as expected, bearing in mind its tightly-populated district, reasonable value on agency rate, restaurant the main let-down, and cheeky bell-boy implying that a ten dollar tip would be appreciated! The location, on the edge of Havana's old town, is the real attraction. The Malecon is within walking distance, as are many plazas and decent restaurants. WiFi would be a definite plus - one PC with scratch card codes for internet is an unnecessarily antiquated system, even bearing in mind the limits of connectivity in Cuba.

Rooms:
Spacious, reasonably clean, AC worked all right, safe in room, sense of privacy

Restaurants and Bars:
Disappointing

Other Comments:
Staff a little on the officious side, but nothing too outrageous!

A lovely place to stay in the heart of old Habana.
The staff were excellent and when asked on our first night where would be a good place to eat away from the hotel the door man actually walked us to a delightful roof to restaurant - excellent service

The building, a former sugar merchant's house, is stunning; the location in Vieja is excellent; our room was largely fine (although the enamel on the bath was cracked in several places and there were uncomfortable plastic mattress protectors on the bed underneath otherwise decent sheets). Most visitors seem to be put on the third floor, which is pleasant enough, though the grand living quarters are on the second floor. Our view was over the top of neighbouring houses, which is to be expected in this central location.
Staff. We came across one lovely, very helpful receptionist. The other one, Mariela, is aggressive and rude, and, frankly, seemed to us to be more keen on pocketing a few extra CUCs than providing a service. It was not just with us: we witnessed similar behaviour to an Austrian man who was trying to book an extra night. She basically told him he didn't have time to book online, so pack up and get out of your room now.
When disgusted by her behaviour, we asked to speak to a manager, she shoved a leaflet and a business card in front of us, told us she didn't understand my Spanish, and said write your comments on the website.
That said, when I tracked down the hotel manager who was in the building, she was charming, very helpful and, I hope, will soon deal with this problematic member of staff.
Breakfast. Why oh why do these hotels insist on serving 'American coffee' which is more like dishwater than coffee and decline you an expresso on the menu when they cost a mere 1 national peso just round the corner (there are 24/25 national pesos to a single CUC)?
