I think that this is one of the best hotels in Old Havana, not only because of the building but also the staff, they are very helpful and friendly. Only I suggest to improve the juices that are served in the breakfast, because with the quality of the tropical fruits that you have in Cuba, is inexplicable to get so bad juices.

I and my wife expeded some days there the last year. The hotel is beutiful and is located in an excellent place of Old Havana. The room was perfect.

The only problem for me... breakfast !!! Nevermind the hotel is located near to others restaurants and cafes.

Prices in this web site is great !!! 53 USD per night I recommend you.

They don't like to say it I guess but this hotel was at one time set up for Jewish travellers. The lobby is spectacular and this is the place to stay if you are interested in the Jewish history of Cuba. Don't ask the hotel staff to tell you about the history they don't know but a jew can tell.

Un superbe hôtel en pleine vieille ville. Calme pour un hôtel du centre. Bon service, magnifique batiment avec une belle terrasse. Mes photos : http://www.lahavane.net/RAQUEL.html

Beautiful old hotel. Because life in Cuba is difficult for the people living there due to low wages be prepared to give tips generously. This means inexpensive itens that you would normally take for granted rather than money. For Instance if you bring chewing gum, chocolate, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, you will receive the best service. A pack of gum will get you restaurant suggestions, help in changing money, tour help and just about anything you need. Raphael the security guard is helpful and a nice man. The desk staff are great. The food is awful though. I don't recommend eating in the hotel at all. Breakfast isn't even good. The rooms are nice, clean and have everything you need. The charm of the hotel and the art work is a tour all by itself. The roof garden is amazing and overlooks the the old city. Its great for people watching. I love Havana.

The hotel is great. Good location in Old Havana. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel. The terrace on top of the hotel is great to relax, read and nap and very quiet. There is no bar on the terrace. Highly recommend the hotel.

This is the best hotel you can hope for. The bathrooms are real, antique gems. The establishment is very clean and well-equipped. It has a spa and excllent services. It is also well located, in a ver safe and completely restored part of town. (Translated from an original in Spanish)

L'hôtel Raquel était le 3ème dans lequel nous avons résidé à La Havane et de loin le meilleur et le plus beau. Très belle chambre et salle de bain. La verrière est magnifique. Super la terrasse sur le toit. Le service au restaurant était OK pour le dîner mais pas terrible au petit déjeuner. La réception nous a reproché d'être en retard pour le transfert à l'aéroport mais elle n'avait pas jugé utile de nous informer du changement d'heure (le 8 mars). Cela dit, je recommande chaleureusement cet hôtel dans la catégorie Hôtels de Charme.
