Stayed here for a week and it was pleasant enough. The hotel is located outside the city center with nothing much of interest within walking distance other than the Malecon. A cab ride to Old Havana will cost 10 CUC. The sleeping rooms are spacious. Ours had two twin beds that were pushed together to make a king-sized bed. Maid... More

Stayed with a tour group for two nights at the end of tour around Cuba. Quite a long way from Old Havana, but near Malecon, Vedado and a quiet location. As with most large hotels in Cuba, investment has been lacking, BUT outside was being painted whilst we were there and current management working hard to improve the place. Room... More

This hotel was fine for our four nights in Havana except I wished we had been closer to the old city. It was a one hour walk along the Malecon but on the other hand it was a quiet place to come back to after exhausting days sightseeing. The management was good at changing rooms when things went wrong which... More

A bit far away from the central, so you are relying on taxis, too far to walk. Had to change room, when it leaked water from the roof into our bathroom. Worn, old -but ok. And the toilet don't flush... buffet dinner not good. Breakfast ok.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The ROC-Hotels Presidente **** is located just 3 kms from the old historical part of Havana, "La Havana Vieja", a twenty minutes drive from the Jose Marti International Airport. It is only 20 minutes from the East Side beaches and 200 meters from the renowned Amadeo Roldan Theatre. Located in El Vedado, only 200 meters from the famous Pier of Havana, "el Malecon", on the Avenue of the Presidents, and flanked by the Cuban Foreign Office and the "Casa de las Americas", the Hotel Presidente rises gracefully with its 10 floors of history and in its peculiar colours of vermilion. The Roc-Hotels Presidente characterises itself for being housed in a spectacular building from the 1920's, being the first skyscraper in the city of Havana, and for its breathtaking interiors representing the era it was built in, but with all its modern comfort and services that the client seeks. The Hotel was reformed in 2011 following a clear luxury style and keeping all the grandeur of its recent history that included many famous personalities of diplomacy and business companies, as well as the art world. It is for this reason that an exquisite care was taken to preserve every detail during its restoration and decoration. Throughout the interior of the Hotel, displayed are more than 400 classified pieces of art, giving a very unique taste to the guests from the moment of their arrival. They can enjoy the "Lobby Museum", relax by the poolside, or go on interesting excursions to Pinar del Rio, Varadero, Santa Maria del Mar or other famous sites nearby. We offer bed and breakfast (CP board), breakfast and dinner ( Half board). We have WIFI in all rooms and all service areas. ... more   less
