I didn't stay here, but spent a lot of time here, eating, drinking beer on the porch and trying to use the internet. An older hotel that has probably seen better days. Reminds me of a Dowager who has send better days financially, in other words, a little shabby! The internet was very, very slow!

We didn't stay at this hotel. We stayed at Casavana Cuba just down the road. We frequented this place regularly while staying in Havana as it sells the wifi cards, has reasonably fast wifi and exchanges money. We found it was a good place to come and chill for an hour or so (mainly so my teenage boys could remain...

Grossly overrated and overpriced hotel. Staff lack compassion. Phone didn't work in the room. Room reeked of mold. Towels smelled of cool ranch Doritos. Food was terrible. The one and only redeemable quality is the lobby is nice and a woman plays the piano in the evenings. Aside from that, horrible.

I wasn't expecting too much of any hotel in Cuba but when a hotel rates itself / is rated as a 4 star I think it's only fair to expect decent service . Below are a few points I've decided to share . I'll start with the better ones - I was impressed with the general standard for Cuba but...

You will probably stay here with a group, so you won't have much choice. But if you are on your own you can do better. Like many things in Cuba it is in need of repairs and upkeep-dirty carpets and grout, plywood ceiling (really) lots of broken things. And mostly it needs a really good cleaning. Some of the staff...

The front desk clerk Ivette has to be experienced to understand what bad service with attitude is truly like. This woman is flat-out mean. And it wasn't just with us. The hotel is old, in need of painting, in need of new beds, the plumbing has issues, the AC sometimes works and sometimes, well, not so much. It's overpriced. And...

Spent there one week in January 2017. Lovely a bit old fashioned hotel and very good hotel staff. Breakfast was very usual hotel breakfast and breakfast roomo was a bit tiny in the rush time but it really wasn't a problem for me. Pool was big enough to have a swim after walking a day around Havanna and pool towels...

Stayed here for 3 nights on our Thomas Cook Classic Cuba Tour. Arrived at the hotel after check-in time & given the room key but found that it was still being cleaned. About half an hour later we were able to go in, but while waiting outside the room we noticed that the hallway was in need of refurbishment, one...

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
