Breakfast was excellent. Our room was vintage and unique. We very much enjoyed our stay there. It's an older hotel. It kind of made me think of an older Spanish Artiste hotel. It's adjoined to the famous Hotel Florida. It definitely feels likes you are in Havana!

Recently renovated, this hotel is a gem in the centre of the Old Town. The hotel has a beautiful central patio filled with plants with a lovely atmosphere and restaurant area which serves one of the better all-inclusive breakfasts that can be found in Havana. I cannot fault the friendliness of the staff; they were incredibly attentive and were always sure to greet us upon entry and exit of the hotel and truly went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our trip. We enjoyed our stay so much that we returned after a few days out of the capital as we knew we would be met with a good quality, clean and friendly hotel. The rooms are charming; simply decorated with all your basic amenities.

All in all a lovely hotel that I would recommend to anyone coming to stay in Havana.

Stayed in January 2013.

In a country beset by neglect, this hotel stands out in the central part of Havana. The rooms are comfortable with solid windows shutting out the outside street noise. A rooftop pool and snack area are an oasis.

The central lounge is a focal point. Drinks, light meals, and nightly entertainment mark the end of a busy day.

Given the state of Cuba, this hotel is reasonably run. We did, as noted by others, have an overbooking problem for your group, but alternative rooms were found within an 8 - 10 minute walk.


Like to a 8-9 minute video of my trip to Havana includes a view of the lobby through the large skylight from the 6th floor. http://www.roberthartungphoto.com/p340893692#h55826614

The hotel is lovely inside with a beautiful patio full of plants.The room was average with fridge ,safe reasonable bathroom.The room didn't have a window but thats common in Havanna.
It is well situated in the heart of Old Havanna.THe staff were reasonably friendly.THe breakfast that they boast as "the best in old Havanna"is awful!They say it is served from 7 am but when we and 2 other couples got there at 7am the lights were still off and they were just about starting to get it ready.It didn't seem to bother them them that we were in the dark.
As far as cuban hotels go its quite good really.

What a shame this beautiful hotel is run so badly. As a previous comment notes, this hotel appears to regularly overbook their rooms and doesn't seem to think they need to give you your money back when you don't get what you have paid for. We booked the Prado Ameno Suite for our honeymoon and were shown to a standard double room. When we complained we were offered a twin room?!! and pretty much told we could lump it. We were told we could move into the suite the next day, but it turned out it was still occupied so we never got to stay in the room that we had actually booked and paid for. "It's not my problem" is actually what we were told by front desk staff, and that we would have to wait to get back to the UK to try and get our money back from the agency we booked through. The hotel itself is beautiful and in a great location. It's just a shame the staff are so poorly trained and the overbooking so rife. Would not recommend unless you are prepared to be conned.

Early May 2011 I stayed here for a few nights. The location is perfect; right in the heart of Old Havana. Just step outside and you're there. Rather large rooms, a little awkward to get in there though along the low arches. Well equipped bathroom, large beds, noisy fridge and a noisy street also during the night. But than; you're right in the center... If you like the quiet do not go to Havana I'd say.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room at the back of the hotel. No street side.

The Marques and the Florida are one and the same. They're lovely and full of character, but they overbook the rooms and for one night of your stay you'll be paying top dollar for a nasty, out of town, corporate place where they send you pretending there is "no water" or "no electricity" at theirs. It happened to us and several other people during our stay.
