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.
Every staff member from the front desk, to the servers to the bartenders, the bellmen and room attendants - everyone was so friendly and so accommodating. And, yes, by US standards this is not a 4 star hotel, but, it is clean, it is comfortable, it is conveniently located in a nice area, we had good AC, the elevators work, the breakfast was great, the WIFI works well, the view from my room was wonderful and we had everything we needed. The entertainment in the evening was another bonus. I would recommend this hotel and I would stay there again.
This is our first time traveling to Cuba and I was a little skeptical as to where we should stay. But I am glad I found this hotel. I absolutely love this place! The service is phenomenal! The staff service was wonderful! I love how they are super attentive. They went above and beyond exceeded my families expectations.
Our tour group booked our stay here and we were generally pleased. The air conditioning in our first room was poor, when we brought this to the attention to the front desk the next morning someone was supposed to check it our before we returned. Upon our return in the late afternoon and the air conditioning not working the front desk had the bellman take us to a couple of rooms so we could choose. Rooms were clean, comfortable a bit cramped, extra electrical outlets were scarce. Except for our last day water temperature of pressure was not a problem. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
This is by most standards, a 2 star, but in Cuba, more like a 4.5 star. The lobby and veranda are very inviting. Nice people, good breakfast and good dinner. You can get wifi for 2 CUC for a 60 min card. The hop on hop off bus stops here just for that reason. I did not ride the hop on hop off, but was told it was 10 CUC for a day. I is quite nice to sit on the veranda and have an ice cold Crystal beer.2 days in Havana is more than enough to see all of the sights. THE FACTS:Exchange your money at the hotel. Long lines at the $ exchange and pretty much the same exchange rate. $100 US = 87 CUC after exchange fees. I brought all crisp, from the bank vault, $1, 5, 10, 20 bills. I was told nothing over a $20. You can tip in $US, but not for payments when buying things. They do not take US credit cards.Beer =1-2 CUCMojito = 3-4 CUC except at LaFloridita =6 CUCcab or coconut from hotel to old town =10 CUCFun old car 32-40 CUC for 1 hour tour. If you get nauseated from exhaust fumes, the coconut or convertible are not for you!A great restaurant 8 blocks from hotel is Gringo Viejo-Calle 21 #454 Havana. We had grilled shrimp with garlic, grilled lobster, rice pilaf, 4 glasses of wine = 50 CUC for 2 people.Must do tours:Old town is great fun. You must go to Floridity. Hemingway's hangout.We had a private driver and guide, so I can not vouch for hop-on-hop-off, but I bet you would get a pretty good tour-10 CUC for the day. Cabs are very reasonable, so another route. I asked a cab driver how much a cab would be from the airport to Vinales, (again, we had a driver and guide the whole time there), he said =90-100 CUC for the 2 1/2 hour ride. Always ask the price first!Visit La Cabana fortress for the 9 pm cannon ceremony.Visit Finca La Vigia = Ernest Hemingways former homeCabaret show at Hotel National=great show and beautiful hotelDo not buy cigars in town and definitely not at the airport. Much more expensive. We went to a cigar farm. 14 Cohiba cigars =45 CUC We traveled from Havana to Vinales for 2 days. Vinales is very beautiful and a must see.See my post on Vinales.
I had a change to visit Cuba and stay at this hotel which the perfect distance to walk to the malecon the service was good when we went for breakfast the food was food and we spoke with the maitre that was very professional but made you feel welcome and friendly proivided us with some information very knowledgeable, the pool was great had a great time
