Palacio del Marques de San Felipe
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 roof top terrace for spectacular views.

Best food & service we received in Cuba. Bar/restaurant staff especially high quality. Rooms are a little damp.AB, Dollar
Great location, noisy air conditioning but best breakfasts and mojitos of the whole trip.AW High wycombe
"As we had been warned, the hotels aren't necessarily what one would expect and one doesn't go to Cuba for the food, but overall they were good. We were given a suite here on our return/last night visit!"AB, Emsworth
"Splendidly located in the heart of Havana Vieja, a comfortable and well appointed hotel offering good service. Breakfast was excellent, freshly prepared from a diverse menu, and the mojitos set the standard by which all subsequent ones were judged."DM,Nottingham
Very centrally-located and with a welcoming staff. Rooms were well-appointed and large. The breakfast was the best of the trip! My only criticism was that the rooms and bathrooms smelt of drains periodically.CW, Bishop's stortford
"We loved this hotel - location was perfect and rooms are world class."NC, Reading
