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.
In the Hotel President, the service, friendliness and courtesy are from the entrance. To wit, those who work in the hotel, I'm not talking about people who are working in an area with the tours. Has a restaurant is not economic, have outside live music. The ladies at the front desk very friendly and cooperative. Teach you how to use the card to connect to the "wifi" and let it be known that one gets well. There are no available showtimes are also there to only 2 CUC for one hour.The watchers of the hotel very outstanding at all is well. Have breakfast from 7:00 am until 10:30, by 13 CUC , style Brunch. I'm grateful to Zady who kindly was able to operate the phone with the card in order to be able to communicate that had arrived. It's very close to the "malecón" and good restaurants. In the morning the lobby dawns adorned with red roses
Loved this hotel! Breakfast was superb. Very nice rooms! Soaked in the salt water pool, walked to the malecon & lounged and listened to live music on the best outdoor patio overlooking Avenida de los Presidentes. Excellent staff.The windows are small but there's nothing you can do about that but get the suite. I will be next time!
Did not stay here but called in for a mohito and a cigar to check it out.. it has a more boutique look but with old school character.has a nice street facing veharanda round the front of the hotel to watch the world go by.. well at least all the classic and some not so classic cars..Well worth a look if you passing..
This hotel is very quiet, but it is remote from your activities, and so you will need a cab to go most anywhere. There are a couple of very good restaurants within walking distance, and we really liked VIP Havana (search for reviews on TripAdvisor). This was the nicest hotel of our stay in Cuba, but also the most expensive. Regular rates are more than $1,000.00 a night (forget the on-line reservation scams) and to extend one more night after our tour, the best that our tour company could arrange was $650.00 a night. For that money, they treat you like they are doing you a favor, however, and even the cab drivers expect to take their cut. To go only a couple of miles to Plaza de Armas, they wanted the same $25 fixed rate as Cuban law requires them to charge to go to and from the airport. They would not budge below $20, and so we walked around the corner and found an old Russian cab that took us for $5, and he was pleased to have the business. The pool area and lobby are beautiful, but private areas like the rooms are a bit more worn. Original old wood framed single pane windows do not begin to keep out the noise, but thankfully the neighborhood is quiet. Try for a room on the upper floors, for a quieter stay. This is a favorite of high end tour groups, and the dining areas can be rushed at times. Our in room plumbing was so so, and 50% of the elevators were working during our stay, which is pretty good for Cuba. Food is pretty good for any Cuban hotel, but we were just wanting to go back to the USA after twelve days of stomach problems, and we did not eat much here.
This was likely a fantastic hotel back in the day, but the rooms have become a little run down. We were a somewhat disappointed in the beds and since the AC didn't get really cold the room was a bit musty and stuffy. The buffet breakfast was okay for Cuba standards, but a letdown if you were eating back home. The omelet station was a good choice. I wouldn't say this hotel is horrible hence the 3 stars. I would just say you are better off staying at a casa particular for the price and value. The location is close to Plaza de la Revolucion. If you are interested in exploring Habana Viejo or other interesting site you will need to hire transportation as it's too far to walk.What we did really enjoy was the pool and outdoor bar area. We were traveling as a family with 2 boys so an afternoon at the pool while mom & dad had a couple mojito's and cervezas and the boys swam was a nice treat for everyone. The pool was clean and nice looking. We had some snack food which was satisfying. The hotel sells WIFI cards at the front desk and you can access the internet in the lobby, pool and it even extends to your room. They run out of access cards, but seem to get a steady supply every few hours so you just have to keep checking back if you miss a batch. Our rooms were higher up with one on the front of the hotel and the other overlooking the pool. Both had great views and I got some really nice photos out the windows which open up so you can get a clean shot. We felt safe and secure here. The staff was really friendly and nice.
