Our Opinion
A famous hotel located right in the middle of the local scene in Vedado, the rooms are nice and updated and it has an open air disco on the top of the hotel.  
A fun, hip hotel right in the heart of Havana. Incredible selection of entertainment, including a nightclub on the top floor with a retractable ceiling that allows you to take in a show under the stars.
Location: Downtown district of Vedado. 40 min from Havana airport.

Dissapointing but safe and central location

We arrived at hotel and the staff was indifferent. Initially they gave us a room on a lower floor which was unacceptable because of mold and overall condition of the floor. We went back to the lobby and they re-assigned us to the 16th floor which was remodeled and clean. Our new room was clean and had a spectacular view of the city. If you book in this hotel, make sure you ask for a room on one of the top floors.Breakfast was included and there was a lots of choices but staff again was indifferent. It's disappointing to be served by people that seem indifferent and unhappy. That was the general feeling with most of the employees.Forget about asking for recommendations for local restaurants because the staff seems to have limited information. We ventured around the neighborhood and found a few very nice local restaurants on our own.We booked a tour with the local tour agency on site and that was another interesting experience. Again the staff is overwhelmed and indifferent. Do you want to book, yes or no? Don't ask for to much information and don't expect the tour bus to be on time.The tour itself was nice and we met a lot of enthusiastic travelers that were staying in either private houses or other hotels, with interesting stories and similar experiences.A good rating for the room cleaning staff, the ladies were helpful and friendly.The bar in the hotel lobby is nice and the music in the evening is really nice. I cannot recommend this hotel based on my experience but again it was safe and the location worked out well for us. Overall average rating based on location, clean room and cleaning staff.

A safe haven in Havana

Tryp Havana Libre is managed by the Melia chain and they are to be commended on a fantastic job of running a large hotel in a very difficult environment.Centrally located within walking distance of Hotel Nationale and with freshly updated panorama rooms this hotel is highly recommended for those looking for a safe clean and convenient place to stay.The staff are friendly professional and helpful.We were glad to have wifi on our floor but it is sporadic at best.Higher floors offer a beautiful view.

Havana 5*hotel, but in Europe 1*hotel

Knowing the poor quality of the hotels in Havana, you do not have too much expectations. Hotel Habana Libre was certainly a very beautiful hotel in 1980. Very well situated for exploring Havana. But since then, there is no longer done any maintenance. Where the lobby is still OK, when you arrive at the floors, out of the elevator, parts of the ceilings are missing and mold is on the walls. When we arrived in our room, we had an enormous room with a beautiful view on the skyline from Havana. Unfortunately, the windows are not cleaned outside since years. The furniture in the room is completely swollen from moisture. When you are on the toilet, you get wet on your head from water (I hope) coming from the next floor. Sometimes they do forget to do the service in the room. The food in the restaurant: an enourmous buffet with a lot of choice. Some of the plates are delicious, others are not eatable at all. For example: a paella was completely burnt, but they serve it anyway and they hide it under the rice. Majority of the personnel in the restaurant are not interested at all and not very helpful, but there are some exceptions. A broken door in the restaurant, no problem, not necessary to repair it.

This hotel is tired and needs a great deal of work done to it. I stayed there twice. Both times it was very busy. My first room had wood borer in all the skirting boards. the air con was not working very well and the water was not working when i got up next morning. I did have a room that looked out over the harbour which was excellent. On my second time there i got a much better room that looked out over the pool. Both the air con and the water worked and there appeared to be no wood borer. Both times half of the lifts didn't appear to be working and so it was quicker to use the stairs. I'm guessing due to its size the tour companies use it at the start and end of their tours. Breakfast was a quite adequate buffet. The staff on reception were not very helpful.
