Ideally located hotel in an 18th century building overlooking a beautiful Old Havana square.

The marvellously located Palacio del Marques de San Felipe hotel lies just off the seafront in the heart of Old Havana, overlooking San Francisco de Asis Square. It's a lively and beautiful area and you are right in the midst of the action, with al fresco restaurants and live music spilling out from cobbled plazas.

The baroque building dates back to the late 18th century and its exterior has a classically Spanish colonial appearance, much at home within the surrounding architecture. Inside, the décor is more modern and both the facilities and service are considerably above usual Cuban standards; the staff are particularly charming and helpful. We recommend visiting the sixth floor rooftop terrace for spectacular views.
