Fodor's Expert Review Tryp Habana Libre
Calle 23 (La Rampa) y Calle L, Havana, 10400, Cuba
This high-rise monster is, at least, easy to find, even if it's not nice to look at, but rooms are functional and modern; some offer astounding sea views, especially on the upper floors. The restaurants and bars are always abuzz, and Cuba's best musicians play at the rooftop Turqino disco (the vistas from here are stunning, especially at dawn). The location puts you in the municipal nerve center: Calle 23 (La Rampa) slopes right down to the Malecón, Parque Coppelia's ice-cream emporium is just across the way, and the Universidad de la Habana is a five-minute walk east.
- the hotel is squarely in central Vedado and on the main thoroughfare leading into central Havana
- large outdoor pool
- great bars and restaurants
- some visitors have reported dirty rooms
