Walking the lobby, grounds, and having a drink is like being back in the past. You can imagine Rita Hayworth or Buster Keaton walking by as you make your way through the hotel.

We loved this place; the atmosphere, the gardens, the pool, the locations and the staff. Everyone is very attentive and the building is amazing. It is definitely worth doing the historical tour if you are staying there as it is free.

We had our first Mojitos(of many) here after walking down the Malecon. Nice spot to relax .Drinks the same price as all over town and stronger than many . Good service but not pushy. Inside is beautifully tiled

Beautiful hotel right on the Malecon in Vedado. The gardens in front are a lovely location to enjoy a drink while taking in the view and people. Graded 4 stars as the bartenders at the bar seemed somewhat disinterested in serving. But otherwise a nice place.

A strange place, like so much in Havana. The hotel is beautiful, from 1930, and it has been kept in shape. I chose the expensive restaurant. A really elegant, large room at one end of the lobby. A steady stream of people came up to the glass doors, looked in and took a photo, but only five or six persons... More

By learning the history of this amazing hotel prior to your arrival, it will be all the more impressive to you. We had lunch here, outdoors, and it was the best meal by far of our entire trip. The grounds are commensurate with the interior...........both just lovely.

I had a good mojito on the terrace overlooking the sea. I then had dinner at the restaurant and was very disappointed between the very average food and tourists continuously coming into the dining room and taking pictures of the place.
