Lovely neighbourhood with colonial style houses. It is clean and green. There are nice restaurants and bars around. I stayed in a beautiful colonial house and fully enjoyed it. The taxi to Habana Vieja is around 8-10 EUR.

Vedado is the heart of the City of Havana. It's the downtown. In Vedado you find the Malecon, the best paladars restaurants, the main avenues and conections for other neighborhoods.
Modern side of Havana in which Coppelia icecream is an important point of reference. So, some theaters and art places such as Fabrica de Arte is located in Vedado.
The best private rooms for rent are in Vedado rather than Old time like Penthouse 21&M which provides wonderful confortable rooms. This place located in the very corner of 21 st and M is runned by experienced people who speaks several languages.
In Vedado we find a more confortable start point to visit Havana because is in the middle of Old Town and Miramar.
Absolutely, the best neighborhood in Havana to discover Cuba, get adapted and initiate a nice travel.

We stayed in an excellent property in Vedado, Paseo 409, and would highly recommend this district if you are staying in Havana for a few days. Although it is a little way out of the historic centre this need not be a problem as it is easy to get a taxi, and even though there were six of us we could still all pile into a classic car for the ride home. Just negotiate a fair price before setting off – usually around 15 CUCs.
Vedado is a once beautiful residential area, with plenty of restored villas and a fair few that are in need of a little work to make them habitable once more – but this is part of the charm of Vedado. It features occasionally in Graham Greene’s “Our Man In Havana” if you want to get some added flavour.
There are plenty of good restaurants and bars in this area, and also some characterful local cafes. It’s possible to walk over to Revolution Square in one direction and across to the Hotel Nacional via the famous ice cream shop, Coppelia’s, in another. One nearby point of particular interest is John Lennon Square. It’s fairly easy to navigate around Vedado once you get used to the grid system and the street numbering system.

It still has its "downscale" areas, but also has some lovely buildings. There appears to be a large-scale "rehabilitation" of old buildings, which is usually much needed.

There are basically 3 parts of classical Havana, Old Havana, Vedado and Miramar. Vedado is more residential and a neighborhood that many Habaneros are choosing to live in nowadays as old Havana is so old and can be very noisy. There are many houses with small gardens here as well as parks, bars and clubs. The famous John Lennon Park with his statue is also in Vedado. Many hotels and casas are also in this area but everything you would like to see is in Old Havana and you would need to take a taxi if you stay here.

Surrounded by "what was outstanding mansions", now in a bit of disrepair... this neighborhood is a gem. Huge houses, fluted columns, art-deco facades (crumbling) - just a great area for a pre-dinner walk and tons of really solid,good restaurants

There is not a huge amount in terms of sights in Vedado but its a nice place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the centre and has some nice more upscale casa particulares and plenty of good restaurants as it has been a very wealthy neighbourhood. Its not too inconvenient for sightseeing either as a collectivo only costs between 1 and 5 CUC - depending on how many passengers are picked up, to Central Park. Or if its not too hot and you want some exercise you can walk in 50 mins.

Though Old Havana is interesting it tends to be a little ominous with its old buildings, many of them in disrepair. Vedado is a livelier place, more modern, and as 2 women travelers, we felt safer there walking around in the evening.

It is close to the Malecon, and offers a variety of B and Bs and restaurants.
