There are few hotels in Havana where the front door miraculously swings open (thanks to a deft doorman, naturally) – the Saratoga is one of those hotels. And that door has swept open for many notable guests since the historic hotel re-opened in 2005 including legendary guitarist Jimmy Page and pop phenom Beyoncé.
The Saratoga, voted one of the region’s top hotels by Condé Nast Traveller, is fast gaining a reputation as the hip place to stay in Havana and not only for its high-profiled clientele: this hotel is living proof that international standards for luxury can be met, maintained and even improved upon, in Cuba.
The elegantly curved building was originally constructed in 1879 and expanded between 1915 and 1925. Its location across from the Parque de Fraternidad (with a tree planted from each country in the Americas) and diagonally opposite the legendary Partagas Cigar Factory and the iconic Capitolio, has been a draw for over a century.
Behind the neoclassical façade, guests find an entire menu of services including a wine and tapas bar, the upscale Anacaona restaurant (grab the window table for unsurpassed people watching), and the Mezzanine Bar and WiFi area; the Deluxe Patio rooms overlook this inner courtyard.
Saratoga sets the standard for rooftop pools: from your chaise you’ll be treated to unparalleled views of the majestic Capitolio, Central Park and the Prado beyond. Cocktails at sunset are highly recommended here.
