Possibly the best value hotel for where it is situated, the Hotel Lido boasts an extremely central location, just a few blocks away from the Prado, very close to Old Havana. This is a true backpacker's dream hotel. The Hotel Lido sits in a residential street, giving guests a very real Havana experience, complete with crumbling neighbouring buildings, streets line with classic American cars, a Latino feel, and a certain gritty realness. Guests will find many a photo opportunity while staying here. The rooms are basic but clean, there is a snack bar and grill, a rooftop terrace with a bar, 24 hour reception, and every backpacker's number one requirement: internet access. This hotel truly is a no frills experience, but guests can enjoy daily breakfast on the roof, with spectacular views across Havana. This is a great way to start the day and plan out where to explore next. Due to the central location of the Hotel Lido, many of Havana's popular attractions are very close by. The National Museum of Fine Arts has exhibitions from Cuban artists right the way from Spanish colonialism through to the present day. Even if art isn't of interest, it is worth a trip to view the impressive buildings. Also close by is the Museum of the Revolution. Staying at the Hotel Lido, guests will undoubtedly notice the image of Che Guevara in and around the streets of Havana. At the Museum of the Revolution, which is housed in the old Presidential Palace, visitors can learn about Cuba's fascinating history, then walk around Old Havana and see much physical evidence from Havana's past. Another enjoyable thing to do while staying at the Hotel Lido, is to walk the Paseo del Prado. This wide tree lined street divides Old Havana from Central Havana, and leads right up to the Malecon sea road. With benches on either side, it can be nice to just sit in the shade and take in life in Havana. With such an incredible location, friendly service, surrounded by buzzing real Cuban street life, it is no wonder that the Hotel Lido has become a bit of a backpacking mecca, with many travellers coming back again and again.
