Hotel ROC Presidente
- What's Included
OverviewIn the heart of Havana in the El Vedado area. Approximately 3 km from Old Havana; 130 km from the Varadero airport.
This hotel is a mixture of good and not so good. The staff is top level and the hotel clean and comfortable. The room was comfortable and clean but there was mold growing in the shower. Also the air conditioner leaked from the ceiling into the room. After several attempts and two days they finally got it to stop. The staff is top notch and on pare with any 5 star hotel I have been in around the world. The hotel was quite. All and all a pretty good place to stay
I loved staying here and love the decor that it feels like there is a time lapse from the 50's, loved it. We had a suite, and two bathrooms which was a real surprise with fabulous views. Great Service.
Great hotel, well kept, and inviting. The décor includes many antiques throughout. The bars and restaurants make for a very good experience. Their location is very good, close to downtown, and to the waterfront. We enjoyed our experience here.
Do not let the three stars scare you away. This is quite a nice hotel, a slightly seedy, but still attractive Grand Dame. The three stars are for the location. It is miles from Old Havana, and unless you're up for a 6 mile walk, you will be taking a lot of cabs. I was there with a tour group, so it was not a great problem. I suspect a lot of tour groups use this hotel. The good part of the location is it is two blocks from the Malecon, the walkway along the sea, so that is handy for strolling.The rooms are variable. My first room was on the seventh floor, and it was spacious, and there were dedicated reading lights for bedtime reading. You will need a stopper if you plan to take a bath ( I was warned to bring one, just in general, but didn't). You also need to be agile, as the bathtub is quite high. There is a nice supply of toiletries. You will need an adapter for your electronics. One is not needed in all hotels.The towel are threadbare. The hotel safes are not free. There is wifi, but as with all places in Cuba, you have to purchase a wifi card, punch in strings of numbers, and hope you really have the one hour they say you have. You can sign in and out, but I kept track of my times.You don't always get an hour. If you want wifi in your room, book a lower floor. My 7th floor room almost never had it. My ninth floor room, which was smaller, and no reading lights, never, ever had it. Other folks on the tour, on lower floors did have it, also in other rooms on the seventh, It varies. Assume you will be stuck in the lobby. Which is nice, and if you sit in the wifi area, you can order drinks too. Still, overall, wifi is a pain.There is a nice outdoor pool, which I didn't have occasion to use, and a small gift shop in the pool area. The breakfasts are spectacular. Everything conceivable from sweets to savories. I haven't seen a spread like this since South Africa. I only had one dinner there, in their fancy dinning room, and the food was quite good. There is also a nice front porch for drinks or whatever, and lounging.If you are not concerned about being near Old Havana, this is a pleasant hotel.
Hotel room and bathroom were large and clean, however the a.c never cooled down and the room was miserably hot. The salt water pool was refreshing. It did take 10 hours and multiple request to get bottled water delivered to room. Not sure I would stay again.
