Hotel Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal in Havana, Cuba
The façade may be baroque and the name Rococo, but throughout the Palacio del Marqués de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal is an ultra-modern, high standard hotel. With Old Havana as a timeless backdrop, the view from the 6th-floor roof terrace confirms San Felipes’ perfect location. The Cuban aristocracy of the 18th-century, from when this building dates, realized this. Emblematic sights from the San Felipe include the Basilica de San Francisco and the pigeon-filled plaza of the same name with its distinctive fountain. All standard rooms are shaped and equipped with high-end furniture. Unconventional colors and combinations are used to full effect, enhanced by indirect lighting.
Behind almost every Old Havana façade there are surprises and wonders hiding. The baroque frontage of this boutique hotel is no different, as the interior combines stylish furnishings with modern utilities seamlessly, while maintaining the integrity of the original architecture. Breakfast, taken below the old stone, arched columns of this former palace until 11.00am, is a morning ritual. Guests rave about the variety of fresh produce, its creative presentation and the attentive service of staff.

Reviews for Hotel Palacio del Marques de San Felipe y Santiago de Bejucal
This is a terrible hotel with incompetent staff. I booked a room by telephone with a quoted rate of CUC 180 per night. When I arrived, they "lost" the reservation and charged me CUC 360 per night. The man at the counter was a complete jerk about their error and behaved in an extremely hostile manner. He was belligerent to me throughout my stay, even refusing to change dollars into CUC. The hostile attitude made my stay extremely unpleasant. One more thing - the breakfast at the hotel was really bad. The scrambled eggs tasted like wood shavings, the bread was stale and the coffee was cold. There must be better options in Old Havana than this place. Avoid this hotel at all costs!

This is my second stay at this lovely hotel!! Excellent location, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast! Kudos to the restaurant and bar staff for a job well done! Your front desk and concierge staff are exceptional! The only thing missing both trips is hot water for shower! Can we fix please? I plan to return!

This is our second time visiting Cuba and we have travelled extensively throughout the island and either you will opt for a government owned hotel or a Melia, iberostar. If you do opt for a government owned this is the best one. The food is amazing and you will have a few more amenities not found anywhere else. The location is amazing. You would be able to walk everywhere from there.

Worst service and the worst drinks we had during our visit to Cuba over the 14 days we were there. Beer was hot and the piÃ±a coladas were tasteless. Waited 20 minutes for our four drinks. Plenty of other places to choose for a drink which offer better service and better valued drinks. Give it a miss.

This is a very pretty little hotel in the lovely square opposite the ship terminal in Havana. The room was OK. Internet connection only available on the ground floor in the restaurant. Service was APPALLING - we waited an hour one morning for one fried egg and bacon. Great position for walking the city and water front - but thats it!
