Historical Traveller Reviews of Silken Gran Hotel Havana

Great hotel - great location

from Robbo
Stayed at the Gran Havana hotel for 5 nights in June/July 2005.
I was a little apprehensive after reading more recent reviews about the standard of the hotel but we could not fault it, it definitely warrants the 4* rating. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly and whatever we asked for was no problem (although their English was not great).
Our standard room was spacious and the air conditioning was great. Bathroom was very nice with all stocks of bath gels, shampoos etc. restocked daily.
The hotel is in a great location, just a couple of blocks along the main Gran Via to the main tourist areas.
The rooftop pool was very nice and there was plenty of space to sit at the end of a days sight seeing. As there are some business travellers in the hotel, there is less demand for the pool so more space for tourists.
The bar in the hotel was always open when we came in of a night for a late night drink around 12.30 / 1.00am.
Overall we could not fault this hotel and would definitely recommend it.

Perfectly situated hotel

from SobiWan
We stayed in this hotel for our honeymoon. Initially we booked a standard room via Expedia, but on arrival got upgraded to an Executive room on the 6th floor. The rooms were very clean, the staff very friendly and approachable. The location of this hotel is perfectly situated for tourists as it's a 10-15 minute walk away from Las Ramblas. Many of the other tourist attractions are within walking distance eg. Sagrada Familia 20 minutes. I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent City

from Goldentrippers
We asked for a room on an upper floor to avoid traffic noise and they fitted us into the fourth floor. The rooms are good size, clean comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay, No more than eight minutes walk from Catalunya square, even less from other metro stations and we would thoroughly reccommend this hotel to others who want comfort and convenience. We will be going back again!!!!

s OK, but not a 4 Star Hotel

from LBF123
Spent a couple of nights at this hotel last week. All in all the hotel is OK - but as other reviewers have stated, it's not a 4 Star property. Room (considering the price) was a disappointment - it feels like it needs an overhaul/update. Also, the hotel is a few blocks away from all Placa Catalunya, Barri Gothic, etc. - not as close to the sights as many other hotels. You can hear the rumble of the Metro train (about every 3-5 minutes) until it stops at midnight (I was on the 6th floor and it was definitely a very noticeable noise). The dining room was fine, it's expensive for breakfast (16 euros for the buffet) so we opted to have breakfast elsewhere! Staff at the front desk overall was pleasant. We wouldn't stay here again (based on location and price), it's a hotel that truly didn't leave any particular impression.

Good location, 3 star quality

from spenjul
Stayed at Gran Havana for 4 days in Feb 2005 with my boyfriend. Everything was OK at this hotel but it is no where near a 4 star status. All the furnishing and decor is pretty old and shabby, the towels are thin, etc you can tell this hotel went through some cost cutting measures. Don't pay over EUR 150 a night to stay there - its not worth it.

Good points: Staff very friendly and helpful, good location withing walking distance to all the attractions.

Happy to recommend the Silken Gran Havana

from Arnie21
Stayed in a spacious 6th Floor Executive room with 40sq ft balcony. Great Location to explore and the centre of Barcelona, very friendly and helpful staff and a super breakfast buffet. All in all this hotel is highly recommended.

We arrived for a two night stay after our cruise. Hotel was very clean and staff very friendly. Room was great. Within walking distance to all attractions. Front desk was prompt with all requests. Would reccommend this hotel to all.....

Good hotel...could be better

from ehall0527
I stayed at the Gran Havana one night before a cruise. Our first choice was all booked up.

Pros: The decor in the hotel is very nice and the room was more than what I had expected. Marble bathrooms with large shower. Good location. The best part was wireless(B) internet access.

Cons: Traffic noise outside is noticeable but not loud. Wake up call was never made. Expensive food.
