The ROC-Hotels Presidente **** is located just 3 kms from the old historical part of Havana, "La Havana Vieja", a twenty minutes drive from the Jose Marti International Airport. It is only 20 minutes from the East Side beaches and 200 meters from the renowned Amadeo Roldan Theatre. Located in El Vedado, only 200 meters from the famous Pier of Havana, "el Malecon", on the Avenue of the Presidents, and flanked by the Cuban Foreign Office and the "Casa de las Americas", the Hotel Presidente rises gracefully with its 10 floors of history and in its peculiar colours of vermilion. The Roc-Hotels Presidente characterises itself for being housed in a spectacular building from the 1920's, being the first skyscraper in the city of Havana, and for its breathtaking interiors representing the era it was built in, but with all its modern comfort and services that the client seeks. The Hotel was reformed in 2011 following a clear luxury style and keeping all the grandeur of its recent history that included many famous personalities of diplomacy and business companies, as well as the art world. It is for this reason that an exquisite care was taken to preserve every detail during its restoration and decoration. Throughout the interior of the Hotel, displayed are more than 400 classified pieces of art, giving a very unique taste to the guests from the moment of their arrival. They can enjoy the "Lobby Museum", relax by the poolside, or go on interesting excursions to Pinar del Rio, Varadero, Santa Maria del Mar or other famous sites nearby. We offer bed and breakfast (CP board), breakfast and dinner ( Half board). We have WIFI in all rooms and all service areas.

I spent 5 days of quarantine during the covid pandemic there. Food was basic and lacked creativity. Customer service from the bellboy and the IT technician were none whatsover. The bellboy expected a tip before he even picked up my luggages besides the fact that he was dragging them. After that incident on the day i was checking out he decided not to help bring the luggages downstairs for which i had to do it myself. Whereas for the IT technician, i paid for wifi during my stay and apparently i was being logged off the system without having done so…i called the front desk and asked if there was an issue with the wifi…after 30mins the bellboy was sent upstairs to tell me that there was nothing wrong and that i should check if my phone had a problem. The technician never called to ask what the issue was nor did he come upstairs and check the routers. Be aware there is no such thing called customer service or customer support in this hotel. The only people capable or amicable were the cleaning lady(camarera) and the lady at the front desk. Hope they sincerely read this and use it as constructive criticism.

During our ride on the Havana bus we saw a nice looking cafe outside the Presidente Roc Hotel and decided to get off the bus and sit for a while, have a coffee and enjoy the view out to the street. The service was a little slow but eventually they came to us with a menu from which we ordered some light snacks, cappuccino and a latte. They came out promptly with the coffees. It took a little longer to bring out the snacks but I must say they were nice and hot, fresh and tasty. The best part of our visit here was the view of the busy street and watching all the cars and people going about their daily life. It made for great entertainment and was very interesting just seeing it all on such a beautiful sunny day. The cost of our snacks and coffees was reasonable inline with this being a 4 star hotel. While waiting for the bus to come back we looked inside the lobby and it was very elegant with 1920s or 1930s type decor inside. We also had a look at the pool area which was next to the lobby and it was very inviting. Not sure what the cost of a room here is but that's certainly a lot more than the Casa particular where we were staying.
