Hotel Sevilla

The Sevilla Biltmore,as it was known before the Revolution, was one of the establishmentsowned and run by Havana’s Mafia network. Santo Trafficante Junior hadshares in it and the Cuban-Italian owner, Amletto Battisti, was thekingpin of the city’s lottery racket. The Sevilla hotel has a rathercurious layout but its public areas are very attractive. The prevailingdecorative style is, as one would expect, Andalusian, with a profusionof lustre-glazed cuerda seca tiles. The lobby and courtyard bar arewelcoming and the Hotel Mercure Sevilla is one of the only three hotelsin the area with a pool (the other two are the Parque Central and theSaratoga).

The Sevilla Hotel is located just off the elegant Paseo del Prado, thepublic promenade which links Parque Central with the Malecon OceanDrive, it is ideally placed for exploration of Havana’s historicalcentre. The rooms are very satisfactory, but the very best part of theMercure Sevilla, much frequented by those in the know, is its rooftoprestaurant in what was once the hotel’s grand ballroom. It haswonderful views of the city and the sea, and if you can get a tablenext to one of the balconies you can revel in blissful ocean breezes onhot summer nights. The food is very good, owing, we assume, to thehotel’s French ownership.

Until recently the hotel was known as Hotel Sofitel Sevilla.
