This is my second visit to this Hotel,but the previous one was some years ago so it was like first time!! I chose it this time for the location and was pleasantly surprised to see it has improved. Still the Hotel has the flavor you expect in a Hotel of the Fifties!!
Being a City Hotel, with pool in the center of Vedado area at just 3 or 4 blocks from Malecon it is already a benefit.
Positive: The quiet ambiance, a terrace in front of the Hotel, the pool with sunbeds, snack-bar and grill with good service and nice simple food. there is a door connecting rooms with the pool so you do not have to cross the lobby after enjoying the pool.
I do coincide with JoeDassing about the coffee try it at the Lobby bar or at the snack bar in the pool.
Rooms: mine was good with 2 sets of windows one with view to the city and the other to the sea... so ask for the ones at the corners of any floor..
Kids: Please be aware that for kids under 10 years there are not activities and swimming pool do not have child area, although it has an area of 0.60 cm

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.
