Cuba / Accommodation
A guide to accommodation options in Havana
Where to stay in Havana
As the island’s capital city, and a must see destination, Havana has by far Cuba’s greatest range of accommodation options, both in terms of quality and quantity. Even so, there are still relatively few top end hotels in Havana, with the majority of accommodation occupying the mid-range market.
The vast majority of visitors to Havana will want to base themselves in the city’s historic heart, Old Havana, home to almost all the city’s main tourist attractions. There are just over 25 hotels in Old Havana, most of them what we describe as ‘heritage hotels’, housed in a mish-mash of buildings that reflect Cuba’s historic and cultural legacy. As these hotels range in size from only 10 to 50 rooms they do book up very early.
There are now a handful of international quality hotels in Old Havana, such as the Kempinski Manzana La Habana, Gran Hotel Bristol by Kempinski, Iberostar Packard, Iberostar Parque Central, SO Paseo del Prado La Habana & Innside Catedral Havana – all are within a short walk of each other.
In addition to hotels, Old Havana is now home to a large number of casa particulares which, as well as generally offering better value for money, also tend to be much more personable.
A 10-minute drive from Old Havana is the largely non-descript Vedado neighbourhood, home to the iconic Hotel Nacional as well as some other, quirky throwbacks to the 1950’s and 1960’s such as the Hotel Capri, Habana Libre, Hotel Riviera and Presidente.
Further out still, mainly in the Miramar district, are a collection of modern hotels that are popular with tour groups and business travellers, hotels such as the Melia Cohiba and Melia Habana.
One constant with accommodation in Havana is that demand can exceed supply and casa particulares especially book up a long way in advance throughout the year, but especially between November and April.
