Hotel Sevilla

Hotel Sevilla

Splendid old hotel with an illustrious past, with fairly simple rooms but an atmospheric lobby area and large outdoor pool.

The splendid old Hotel Sevilla, dating back to 1908, is in one of Havana's most famous buildings. Its Moorish façade and Spanish-style architecture hint at the hotel's glorious heyday when its illustrious guests included movie stars, mafiosos and Graham Greene, author of 'Our Man in Havana'.

The walls of the grand lobby are covered in nostalgic memorabilia and comfy sofas make it a great place to soak up the atmosphere; the adjacent patio bar has regular live music. The guestrooms however do not exude the same character and are fairly simple.

One of the hotel's best attributes is the large outdoor pool area – a luxury in Havana. There is also a modern gym and a sauna. Another bonus is the city panorama that unfurls from the 9th floor restaurant.
