Hotel Lido although a block removed from the Prado, this is a much better bet than its nearby sister, the Hotel Caribbean. In general, the rooms are larger and more comfortable. Interior rooms lack windows and are a tad stuffy, but the end rooms have wonderful private balconies overlooking Calle Consulado. The fifth-floor rooftop restaurant serves uninspired budget fare, but has good views over Havana.
The Hotel Lido is an ideal starting point to know Havana, given its proximity to the Galician Centre (Grand Theatre of Havana), the Museum of Natural Sciences, the Asturian Center (now the Museum of Fine Arts), the Museum of the Revolution , the Paseo del Prado, in addition to the main restaurants, cinemas, shops of Old Havana.
The Hotel Lido will have friendly and family atmosphere, in addition to a facility with all amenities. The Lido Hotel offers 65 air-conditioned rooms with private bathroom, telephone and television. The Property has a restaurant, grill, snack bar, currency exchange and safe.

Hotel Lincoln founded in 1926, halfway between the city’s historic center and modern area, the Lincoln Hotel is certainly Islazul’s best option in Havana.
Its private atmosphere is further enhanced by the comfort of its rooms and the great services offered at the bar, lobby bar, sun deck, and three restaurants: EL COLONIAL, which serves international dishes; EL CRIOLLO, which specializes in Cuba cuisine; and LA MONTANA DE ORO, which cooks Oriental and Chinese food. The hotel also has a gorgeous view of the capital’s northern coast.
At night, the top floor has in store for you plenty of fun with a Cuban show and Dancing music until the wee hours of the morning. And during the daytime, you can enjoy the services offered by snack bar and bar.

Hotel Bruzonis located near the Revolution Square and the National Theater. There is easy access to the historic part of the city and center of the city. The hotel has 48 rooms with air-conditioned; its decoration is simple and welcoming. It has a restaurant, a bar, a room to watch TV, rent of taxis.
This hotel is a good choice for people traveling on a tight budget; the only disadvantage is that the rooms do not have their own bathroom. However, on the positive side the establishment is well located right next to the bus station. The old colonial quarter of Habana Vieja is a 25-minute walk away, or just a short taxi ride.

Hotel Colina In the Vedado quarter, in the center of Modern Havana and across its bicentennial University. A stones throw from the hub of the citys social and cultural activities, surrounded by Restaurants, Art Galleries and Night Clubs.Refined services and a peaceful environment are a few of the benefits offered by this centrally located hotel. This facility is a favorite for those who prefer a family atmosphere and cosy spots to enjoy in good company.
Hotel Cubanacan Copacabana The Copacabana is a hotel open to the sea, right on the Atlantic; an establishment with a nautical flavor; but located right in the middle of the town of Havana. Since 1957, the Copacabana has been part of the exclusive Miramar district in the western area of Havana, the capital of Cuba. In l992, it was remodeled and expanded. Its architecture, located right on the coast, is attractive and functional. The rooms are simple and very comfortable. Facilities:
The Copacabana features a natural pool directly connected to the ocean, as well as a freshwater pool. It is fully equipped for practicing all sort of nautical sports. With their typically tropical atmosphere, the Copacabana ’s installations all have Brazilian names. Some of the most characteristic are the typical and nice Itapoa and Tucán restaurants, the Caipirinha snack-bar, and the widely known Ipanema discotheque. The Copacabana is a hotel with a nautical flavor, offering the Atlantic right in the city. Its location on main thoroughfares such as the Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue) makes it very easy to reach in just a few minutes.
Hotel El Meson de la Flota Being a port city, Havana was always open to sea trade from all corners of the world. On the Mercaderes street, a short distance from the bay and the historical Old Square, El Meson de la Flota opens its doors to visitors, bringing back the image of the old 18th and 19th century inns; those that serves as a meting place for sailors from the legendary galleon fleet during their stay in Havana.
The inn has five comfortable rooms and a restaurant that resembles a Spanish tavern that serves delicious tapas and select wines. The decoration of the inn features sea motifs with scale model replicas of old vessels, complemented by the charm and emotional call of a flamenco “tablao” that undoubtedly invites us to drop in and enjoy a night out.
Hotel Riviera located along the Malecon, Havana’s waterfront boulevard, this elegant hotel is considered a classic among Cubans. Its proximity to the historical-cultural center of Havana, makes this hotel the perfect place from which to explore the city. In the night time the Riviera offers excellent entertainment featuring both the exclusive Salsa Cabaret and one of Havana’s top restaurants
Hotel Park View This is one of the newer additions to the Habaguanex stable and one of its better values. This old hotel, originally opened in 1928, has been entirely restored and remodeled. Rooms, while by no means large, are comfortable and inviting. Their biggest drawbacks are the tiny, 13-inch television sets and the smallish bathrooms, which have slightly cramped corner shower units. Three interior units on each floor have no window, while the end rooms are slightly larger and come with a small balcony overlooking the shady little park that gives this hotel its name. The seventh-floor restaurant serves up standard Cuban and international fare, but with a wonderful view over the Morro Castle. Facilities:
Restaurant; 2 bars; tour desk; laundry service
Hotel Plaza Built in 1909, this is one of the more historic hotels in La Habana Vieja. Suite no. 216 is still rented out, replete with bat and ball and other memorabilia from one of its more famous guests, the Sultan of Swat, Babe Ruth. Albert Einstein and Isadora Duncan were also guests here. The building also served as the headquarters of El Diario de la Marina newspaper. However, historic charm is in greater supply than actual comfort or luxury; although rooms have attractive dark-wood furniture and the bathrooms have tubs, they are a little spartan. You’ll find just as many famous ghosts haunting the nearby Hotel Sevilla , while enjoying more comfortable accommodations in some, but not all rooms. Still, the rooms are spacious and clean, and quite a few have narrow, private balconies. The hotel is undergoing major renovations throughout 2009, its 100th anniversary year. The lobby is worth checking out, whether you’re staying here or not, for its intricate mosaic tile floor, bas-relief trim, and stained-glass atrium skylights. And, by all means, come by for an afternoon drink at the rooftop Solarium Bar, with great views of Havana and the neighboring Bacardí building. Facilities:
3 restaurants; 3 bars; concierge; tour desk; car-rental desk; 24-hr. room service; laundry service; dry cleaning
Hotel Inglaterra This is yet another of the more historic and better located hotels in Havana, although it’s definitely showing its age — it’s been in business since 1875. The ornate lobby, with its colorful Moorish mosaics, and the lively streetside cafe, are the best features here. Rooms are perennially desultory and dated, and most have small bathrooms. However, quite a few of the rooms do come with a small balcony overlooking the Parque Central, a nice perk. The rooftop bar is one of the few such perches to stay open relatively late (closed Sat), although the concrete balustrade obstructs the views when seated at your table. Facilities:
3 restaurants; 2 bars; concierge; tour desk; car-rental desk; 24-hr. room service; laundry service; dry cleaning
