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
Our first room was a decent size, but the air conditioning did not work properly during our first night and the room had a musty, moldy smell. Since it was hot, we requested a room change and the front desk staff was very accommodating and upgraded us to a suite which was wonderful. The suite was spacious with a jacuzzi off the bathroom area that overlooked the square in front of the hotel. The shower and toilet had their own separate spaces. The suite also had a sitting area with a dining table. Our breakfast was included with our tour and the restaurant had a good selection of hot and cold breakfast items. The restaurant is on the first floor in an atrium area and is a nice space to enjoy a meal. There is also a bar if you are interested in an alcoholic beverage. The hotel is located in a quaint square and is centrally located in Old Havana. There are many paladars and historical sights within walking distance to the hotel.

we didn't choose to stay at this hotel ,our hotel had been flooded so we were allocated to here, Hotel itself is nice, room was nice if a bit dreary , sheets were damp but thats because of the air con being on so high , we did ask reception one night to turn it off they said they would send someone , but they never did , the room was too cold to sleep in . Breakfast is not a buffet but served by a waiter which is fine but if you ask for more coffee they don't seem too happy about it . I waited 20 mins one morning having to ask twice for a refill as the cups are tiny , I even asked for a pot of coffee so I wouldn't have to bother them again, being busy serving breakfast, but they said no and poured from the pot and took it away !! service was slow in the bar and resturant , the waiters looked pretty fed up ....sorry !!! The only time we were met with a smile was with the lady from reception . In saying that the food and drinks were very good and the location is fantastic , you are right on San Francisco square

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.
