The Plaza Hotel is situated in one of Havana’s most iconic spots, right at the gates of the very oldest part of this historic city. Constructed at the turn of the 20th century with only the very best in luxury in mind, this grand old hotel drips opulence and has character and tradition at every turn for you to enjoy during your stay.

  • Unique location at the gates of Old Havana This elegant hotel with its neo classical look stands out as one of Havana's gems. It has operated since 1909 and boasts a list of famous and exclusive guests.
  • Authentic Cuban atmosphere This historic hotel has retained a unique Cuban ambiance. There is even a torcedor rolling cigars to order near the lobby bar. Dance lessons are frequently offered to guests without charge.
  • Rooftop Terrace For a relaxing drink and great views of the city, this is the place to be.

Within 35 years of being built the Plaza Hotel became the number one hotel destination in all of Cuba, evidenced by the regular visits of all of the most famous and influential artists, political and social figures of the period. The hotel was closed down for a period but was restored to its former glory and reopened in 1991.

The timeless triangular design and neo-classical façade house rooms that are beautifully appointed with elegant furniture and décor throughout, making for a luxurious Cuban stay like no other. The lobby area is dominated by the magnificent central fountain, complete with singing birds, and there is also the hotel bar if you are feeling in need of a cocktail.

There is a lovely rooftop terrace where guests can engage in complimentary lessons of Cuban salsa dance to really get them into the swing of their holiday and, once they have worked up a thirst, a Solarium Bar that offers a perfect place to take refreshment on board while enjoying stunning views of the city, particularly those of the stunning Bacardi building.

From this stylish base guests can head out and explore Havana itself. In recent years the beautiful buildings contained in Old Havana have, thanks to their greatly preserved colonial buildings, art deco and art nouveaou architecture, contributed to the city being awarded a UNESCO World Heritage listing, reinforcing what the locals already knew – that Havana is a Caribbean gem that you must see for yourself. Alongside the wonderful traditional architecture of Old Havana there are a selection of museums and galleries where you can immerse yourself in the story and the history of the city. All just steps away from the centric Plaza Hotel.

When you are done taking in the culture of the city you can take a short bus journey to the beach at Playas del Este to watch the sunset either from one of the beach-side restaurants or with a cocktail from one of the local bars. A truly relaxed way to end the day and daydream about what the next might bring.
