This hotel is a very nice property and the best choice for anyone visiting Cuba. It is well located and well kept, yes, it is time for some remodeling but considering the current situation in the country, it is going to take a while before they can preform a complete or partial overhaul. The rooms are comfortable, the whole place is air conditioned and it offers Wi-Fi in the rooms and most public areas. They have a decent sized restaurant, bar and swimming pool, the staff is very nice and they do speak English. The Malecon is only two blocks away and there are some restaurants nearby. They are located in one of the main avenues, called Avenida De Los Presidents (Presidents Avenue). There is a "L" shaped terrace al fresco and it is used as the main bar and they serve sandwiches and/or snacks. At night, they have live music and the atmosphere is very festive. Do not forget that you are in Cuba, this is not the Waldorf Storia in NYC but at one time or another this is where all celebrities and presidents from other countries used to stay.

- 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.
