Hotel El Bosque rises in a quiet and residential neighborhood of Havana, it is located only meters from a huge park known as “El Bosque de la Habana” (Havana Forest) and some 10 km away from the city’s historical center.
With its 5 stories and 62 rooms it’s a rather big hotel with very nice friendly staff. However, it must be said El Bosque is not modern or sophisticated; just a simple hotel that can be comfortable enough for spending a few nights in Havana but with rooms that need updating and not so good food.
All guests can use the facilities and services of the neighboring Hotel Kohly (some 700m away and of the same chain): buffet-style restaurant, cafeteria and bar, swimming pool, bowling room, gym, sauna, business center, car rental, etc.
All in all a decent place for spending a night or two in Havana if one doesn’t need luxuries, likes peace and quiet and is OK with taking taxis to visit the city’s main attractions.
