Founded in 1875, the Inglaterra is Cuba’s oldest hotel and has been declared a National Monument. It was exceedingly popular in the nineteenth century and is still favoured by visitors who particularly enjoy hanging out in its covered café, having drinks or sandwiches on tables individually decorated by Cuban contemporary artists and watching the world go by. Some members of the world are given to hissing at one through the potted plants to try to sell you coins with Che on them, or a newspaper, or rather more exotic wares, but if that vexes you there is always the wonderful Seville-style tiled bar to visit, with its gilded flamenco-dancer statue, thought to be of the celebrated nineteenth century Spanish courtesan La Belle Otero. The rest of the ground floor of the Inglaterra is also lavishly decorated, with chandeliers, stained glass, ornate wrought iron, marble floors and moulded ceilings.
