Havana: Hotel Saratoga

Hotel Saratoga

A wonderful neo-classical building, right in the thick of things in Havana's atmospheric historic centre, which bustles with classic cars and the rhythms of street musicians. The rooftop swimming pool and breezy bar provide a welcome respite from the heat of the city, not to mention some spectacular panoramic views.

Though only part of the Hotel Saratoga’s original façade remains, it’s easy to imagine the vibrant days of the 1950s when it was a popular haunt of writers, artists and well-heeled Cubans and Americans. What's more, by modest Cuban standards it’s surprisingly top-notch, with elegant, amply-sized rooms featuring marble floors, antique mahogany furniture and mosaic-tiled bathrooms. Some have an unbeatable view of the domed Capitolio building. The hotel even offers free Wifi in every room, a rarity in Cuba. All in all, our number one choice in the capital.

What our experts say

It was a real treat to return to the sanctuary of the Saratoga, after a full day exploring Havana. Cooling off in the rooftop pool, whilst sipping a refreshing mojito and watching the sun go down over the impressive Havana skyline, was wonderful.
