Amy Adejokun Section editor

The former Hilton hotel has become the symbol of the American defeat. This is a major historical site in Havana, even though it is much less interesting for all other reasons. However, its location and infrastructure make it a pleasant and convenient location to discover the city. Furthermore its past gives this hotel a very peculiar atmosphere.

    Location 5.21 /10

    The Tryp Habana Libre is located at a three-minute walk from the Malecon, on a hill in the Vedado neighbourhood. It takes forty-five minutes to walk to the historical neighbourhood, and it is a 30-minute drive to the airport.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The Tryp Habana Libre welcomes holidaymakers in its 572 rooms (of which 24 are connected).
    Rooms are comfortable but charmless. Air conditioning, satellite television, direct international telephone, refrigerator, 24 hour room service. Rooms overlook the sea.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Built in 1958 and renovated in 1996, the Tryp Habana Libre is a 572 room tower. The lobby resembles that of any international hotel: large, cold, and noisy. A rather pleasant, although expensive, bar can be found on the ground floor.
    The Turquino, the hotel nightclub, remains a reference in the Havana night life.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Three à la carte restaurants offer Polynesian, Cuban, and Italian cuisine. One of them, located on the 25th floor offers refined cuisine. A grill bar by the swimming pool will enchant grill lovers.

    To know

    The Tryp Habana Libre is an institution created in 1958. A symbol of the independence of the country, the hotel was part of the Hilton chain before the revolution. After the departure of the Americans, it was requisitioned by the Cubans who proudly renamed it. The Spanish chain Tryp, bought in September 2000 by Sol Melia, is currently operating the hotel.
    Don't miss the suite where Fidel Castro spends several months: it has a very particular atmosphere. The furniture is authentic antique!

        Entrer dans un des plus imposants bâtiments de La Havane, construit à la fin des années 1950, laisse tout de même une forte impression. C'est un peu comme un voyage dans le temps, rien ou presque n'a changé à l'intérieur depuis 1958. J'ai passé deux nuits dans cet hôtel, dans une chambre du 8ème étage il me semble, avec une magnifique vue sur la mer, les bâtiments décrépis et l'agitation de la rue. Je n'aurais cependant pas souhaité y rester plus longtemps, le service étant sou

      • Advantages

        - Très bien situé, proche du Malecon et du glacier la Coppelia devant lequel les Cubains font la queue pendant longtemps. - Les chambres, spacieuses, possèdent toutes une vue magnifique sur la Havane, de même le restaurant du dernier étage.

      • Disavantages

        - Le service : très peu de professionnalisme de la part du personnel (nous avons du demander 4 fois que l'on nous apporte une troisième serviette de bain, nous étions 3 à partager la chambre, avant que celle-ci ne nous soit apportée).

      The Habana Riviera is the favorite hotel for people who are nostalgic of the 1950s. Reknown for its cabaret, the Palacio de la Salsa, closed down a few years ago, before this was a place of pilgrimage for tourists from all over the world.
