Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Raquel

Calle Amargura 103, esq. de San Ignacio, Havana, 10100, Cuba

Majestic and regal best describes the hotel's elegant Baroque facade and impressive lobby, with its soaring marble columns and domed stained glass roof. Built in 1908, in the old Jewish neighborhood of the city, the hotel's name and decor is a nod to Hebrew culture, and its restaurant even serves typical Jewish cuisine. Its Art Nouveau style makes it one of the most romantic accommodations options in the city, and with only 25 rooms it’s quiet and intimate, too. It's also one of the only hotels in Havana Vieja with Internet, although it's not always reliable.

  • romantic option

CONS

  • some rooms have no windows
