A neo-classical hotel with lofty ceilings and marble floors situated right in the centre of the old city, boasting a rooftop pool with magnificent views.
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.

Good location in central Havana and hotel facilities pretty decent. Service levels very patchy ...RS, Southampton
Great Terrace Bar
“The roof terrace bar in the Saratoga hotel was great.”RL, St Albans
Everything we hoped for!
"Most memorable was the poolside cocktails on the rooftop of the Hotel Saratoga watching the sun set over Havana and a trip to Hemmingway's house in an open top Oldsmobile. Hotel Saratoga was just what we hoped for and didn't disappoint apart from the breakfast service was a little slow."FB, Sudbury
Great, helpful staff. Good location. Breakfast ok.VM, Chard
"We were impressed that the concierge on her own initiative told us of a special ballet performance & obtained tickets."DS, Reading
Lovely rooftop pool
“Saratoga's USP is its rooftop swimming pool, a perfect retreat from the bustle below and great when travelling with kids; but restaurant fare is surprisingly simple.”SM, Madrid
Rooms dated but good quality for Cuba, excellent location. Wifi terrible.SS, Newcastle upon tyne
“The Saratoga in Havana was first class."JN, Wimbledon
Very conveniently located hotel with friendly portering, bar/ restaurant and poolside staff. Unfortunately, the reception staff were consistently surly and unhelpful, and did the hotel a disservice. The views were excellent, and though a little noisy, this was a reflection of its location and Havana!TR Leicester
"Our highlight was seeing Carlos Acosta at the theatre in Havana - excellent seats for only £20 each, thanks to the concierge at the Saratoga.”HPJ, Sevenoaks
Great hotel and fantastic location. Room was lovely and th rooftop pool and terrace bar was the icing on the cake. Apart from breakast, we didn't eat in the dining room, although food by the pool was good.RF, Henley-on-Thames
