Havana is a surprisingly expensive city to stay in, if you stay in hotels and eat in restaurants it can work out every bit as expensive as London or Paris. The problem is that Cuba has a dual economy; if you could live on pesos it would be incredibly cheap. Sadly, as a tourist this is virtually impossible. Most peso hotels wont take foreigners or, if they do you have to pay in dollars. If you are on any kind of a budget I would definitely advise staying in casas particulares, it is much cheaper often more comfortable and the food (a recurring theme in Cuba) is almost invariably better.
