If you are visiting `Havana you definitely have to enjoy the sunset or a drink upon a rooftop in the Old City.

Here you can find a short list of the best rooftops in Havana. All of them are hotels but, of course you can get in and jump on the rooftop to enjoy the view.

I have personally “tested” all these rooftops before introducing them to you 🙂

So here you go, enjoy these best rooftops in Old Havana!

Hotel Ambos Mundos

Located in Calle Obispo (really close to our amazing apartment we rent on AirBnB) is the world-famous hotel Ambos Mundos.

This hotel is famous because of one of its guest. I am talking about Hemingway of course! 🙂

By the way, looks like it’s more difficult to find places in Havana where Hemingway has never been to (lol)

As soon as you’ll get inside the lobby you will notice an old elevator in iron. It’s made with busbars so you will also enjoy the way up.

On the rooftop there’s also a skybar serving drinks and food. So you will have the chance to enjoy the view and a drink (maybe a Mojito?:))

Hotel Parque Central

Parque Central Hotel is one of the most exclusive (and expensive) hotels in Havana. This 5 stars hotel has a beautiful and lighted lobby but also an incredible rooftop with pool and restaurants.

This is the best place to watch the park, El Capitolio and the National Theater. On the other side of the terrace you will also be able to see the sea, El Paseo and other iconic places.

To be honest the restaurant is not so expensive considering the level of the hotel and you can stop there for a drink and for lunch.

Only the hotel guest can use the swimming pool.

Hotel Raquel

Walking along Calle San Ignacio in Old Havana (corner with Amargura) you will find the beautiful Hotel Raquel. You will immediately fall in love with the amazing facade and the main lobby. The hotel combines baroque and art-nouveau architecture.

The rooftop is not usually busy as the others are. In fact it’s more intimate and dedicated to the hotel’s guest. You can ask to visit the terrace and spend there some times enjoying the sunset together with a drink.

Also here the ride in the elevator worth the climb! 🙂


Hotel Saratoga

Facing el Capitolio, just a little on the right, you will see a beautiful cornered facade. That’s the Hotel Saratoga, another historic place in Havana.

The rooftop si definitely one of the best view of the city (Capitolio and National Theater first) and the restaurant will amaze your romantic cuban nights 🙂
