The HavanaReviews.com team stayed at the Hotel Saratoga Havana this year and it’s definitely one of Old Havana’s best hotels. Somehow the staff seems to get the guest experience just right despite being rather cold in their demeanor with guests, compared to more jovial Cuban Hotels. Of course the Hotel Saratoga Havana is a 5 star property and as such the staff may simply be applying the formal rule with guests. However, after the HavanaReviews.com team had stayed at other hotels in Old Havana, the Hotel Saratoga Havana seemed almost clinical in its efficient but devoid of character services. The rooms are all quite large even the standard room and our overlooked the street onto the recently renovated Capital Building. The washrooms are oversized and the best we have ever seen in any hotel in Havana. The Saratoga’s king size beds are comfortable and not too hard or soft and the room sound proofing is perfect, especially when you consider that the hotel is situated on one of Havana´s busiest intersections.
Room service is fairly priced for this type of hotel and our room was kept in good shape during our two night stay. The room included breakfast and what a breakfast! This is probably the best assortment we´ve seen at any Cuban hotel and, even North American hotels would find it hard to compete with what’s offered here. The rooftop pool and fitness center has great views over Havana down to the seafront. The bar on the Mezzanine level is a great place to have a few drinks before visiting the town.
Our stay at the Hotel Saratoga Havana was one of the most expensive we’ve experienced in Cuba. Nonetheless, if you are looking to stay in Old Havana, want absolute luxury and service plus, have the money, then it’s going to be very, very hard to get anything better than this hotel. The Parque Central Hotel competes on star rating but somehow misses the spot in regard to the attention to detail offered at the Hotel Saratoga Havana. It’s hardly perceivable but it’s there, and if you stay here you’ll understand what we mean.
The Hotel Saratoga Havana is within walking distance of every Old Havana attraction; therefore location is a non issue. It also has unique views out onto the Capital Building and the bustling streets of Old Havana.
Hotel SARATOGA Havana is one of the few hotels that do not require prepayment or deposit to Book.
