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.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.
