Raquel Hotel is a small and elegant hotel that offers a romantic old world atmosphere. Located close to Old Square and St. Francis of Assisi Square, this hotel was built in Art Nouveau style with a large central atrium featuring marble columns, a stained glass roof and artwork by well-known Cuban painters. Guests can soak up the atmosphere in the Lobby Bar, dine at the hotel’s Garden of Eden Restaurant and enjoy a drink at the rooftop terrace bar. Hotel Raquel’s central location means that the many attractions and restaurants of Old Havana are easily accessible.
A lovely art deco hotel situated near bars, restaurants and two squares. We loved it here and would definitely go again.
