Best hotels in Havana

Havana is synonymous with Cuba for a good reason: it’s not just the heart of this intriguing Latin American country, but also its soul. Havana’s lavish tumble through history has gifted it with a decadently diverse architectural backdrop. But the city offers much more than just nostalgia. There’s a music scene that’s fused the rhythms of 3 continents into a dazzling array of sensual styles. There’s a cultural scene that’s steeped in iconography but still full of lively debate. And there’s a rich selection of art museums, iconic historic sites, and diverse culinary experiences. Havana more than deserves its one-time moniker of the Rome of the Caribbean.

Things to see in Havana

Old Havana lives up to its name. Founded in 1519, its streets proudly squeeze dozens of architectural movements into a few square miles. But its bustling streets help Old Havana to defy categorization as an open-air museum, despite its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. High-culture Havana can be seen at the National Museum of Fine Arts, which showcases 500 years of art, from painting and gravure to plastic sculptures. For a more down-to-earth view, take an oceanside stroll along the Malecón, once an upscale boulevard and now a vibrant melting pot where Havana's residents come to chat and mingle against the backdrop of the exquisitely weathered facades of the city's historic buildings. Alternatively, explore Havana's industrial heritage with a visit to a cigar factory. Partagas, built in 1845, is the oldest, and the heady scent of tobacco hangs over rooms where artisans still hand-roll Cuba’s signature cigars.

Hotels in Havana

Hotels in Havana may not reach the heights of opulence seen in other national capitals, but they make up for it in color and charm. Some are large, state-sponsored establishments, but many more offer boutique accommodation, housed in colonial-era buildings. Most of these are immaculately and imaginatively decorated, but luxury Havana hotels also offer modern amenities as WiFi, air-con, and shuttles. There are also plenty of discount hotels in Havana which offer affordable rates while providing an insight into Cuban lifestyle, culture, and cuisine that many would consider priceless.

Where to stay in Havana

What you get from Havana’s hotels depends on where they are. Old Havana is where the city is at its most beautiful, and some truly exquisite luxury accommodation can be found here. Most options are refined, colorful, and lovingly restored boutique affairs. The neighboring district of Centro Habana, by contrast, is the place to go for the best Havana hotel rates. This area’s small hotels have the advantage of being sandwiched between Old Havana and Vedado. Vedado itself has some of the city’s top sights and best-kept small hotels, many lining the roads running down to the ocean.

How to get to Havana

José Martí International Airport, located some 9 miles southwest of Havana, is the city’s main international transit hub. As well as charter flights, it offers domestic trips within Cuba and international flights to and from Panama City and Bogotá multiple times a day. Upon arriving at the airport, there many options to travel to Havana: chartered shuttle buses, taxis, and rental cars. While there’s no direct public transportation from the airport into to Havana, the Havana MetroBus offers a low-cost choice for travel around the city. Additionally, the Havana Suburban Railway connects Havana to the surrounding suburban areas and outer provinces.
