HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 7 – If you’re one of those people who prefer lavish hotels and being pampered by the service staff, I wouldn’t recommend you stay at Havana’s Hotel Deauville.
But if your hope is to enjoy a spectacular view of Havana, then I don’t believe there’s a more appropriate place to accomplish that aim.
Located on the seaside’s Avenida del Malecon and Galiano Street, about a 15-minute walk from the very heart of Old Havana, the Deauville is a perfect watchtower from which you can contemplate the lumbering entrance of ocean liners and freighters into the Cuban capital.
From its upper floors you can appreciate the mixture of architectural styles that compose this city, which seems frozen in time and menaced by the decay that has supposedly resulted from the lack of investment in repairs and improvements to its surroundings.
