Amy Adejokun Section editor

One of the most beautiful hotels in Havana, the Raquel was a commercial place for Jewish businessmen, and that is the reason the rooms have the names of Jewish saints and religeous objects are reminiscent of this past.

    Location 9.59 /10

    Very well located in the heart of Old Havana in a pleasant and poplular district. Calle Obispo entertainment is not far away. The airport is 11 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 25 rooms, on 2 floors, are spacious and decorated in both a romantic and religious style. They have all been decorated by Cuban artists. All rooms have satellite television, telephone, minibar, safe, and air conditioning. There are also 2 rooms for non-smokers. The bathroom includes a bath. Note that 6 rooms do not have a window!

    Overview 6.95 /10

    This magnificent building on a street corner was built in 1905 for Jewish merchant business. That is why the rooms are decorated and named to remind us of this rich past. The Art nouveau decoration gives the place a romantic atmosphere. Its glass roof and stained glass windows only reinforce this atmosphere. This building has been renovated for the last year so that it will become one of the most beautiful hotels in Havana. Small fitness room and massage room in the basement, a bit disappointing compared to the rest of the hotel.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    A restaurant located in the hotel hall, where a buffet breakfast is served. Tables are scattered around the room to welcome guests. They are separated from the hall by screens. Large windows open onto the street to let the air and the street atmosphere in. An à la carte menu is proposed at midday and in the evening.

    To know

    There is no parking lot in the hotel, but there is one 5 minutes away on foot which costs $ 5 a night.
    Romantic people can book the small tower on the roof where dinner can be served.

        Bon hôtel, très bien placé, peu bruyant du côté de la rue, le seul bruit vient des employés dans le hall qui fait caisse de résonance... Belle chambre.

      The Ambos Mundos likes its image as a hotel for intellectuals. The legend says that Ernest Hemingway lived there for a period. For the rest of the hotel: charm, nice people, friendly personnel and a tuned piano. We will be going back.

      People who love architecture will be delighted with this hotel because on each floor there is a different architectural era. You pass from the 18th to the 19th century and from the 19th to the 20th century depending on the floor. Worth exploring!
