Hotel Sevilla Havana - Hotel Overview

Hotel Sevilla Havana Hotel Description


Ground was broken on this hotel in 1880, but the grand opening didn’t happen until 1908. The location, with the elegant promenade del Prado, as well as many cafés, restaurants and theaters nearby, was chosen deliberately. With such a privileged location, guests – both then and now – were placed at the center of Havana’s social and cultural scenes.

The history of this hotel, once famously known as the Sevilla Biltmore, is rich, motley, even uplifting. It was once managed by a gangster and mafia bigwigs like Al Capone stayed here. When the Hotel Nacional de Cuba denied access to world renowned chanteuse Josephine Baker based on her skin color, the Sevilla rolled out the red carpet, welcoming her with open arms. Not surprisingly, the press soon followed, further heightening the Sevilla’s fame.

The large, wide and inviting lobby is an extravagant example of Mudejar (Moorish) inspired décor with colorful mosaic tiles and deeply carved ceilings. The open patio just beyond is rarely bereft of guests enjoying live music played by a Cuban quartet.

One of the gems of the Sevilla is the street-level pool with palm trees and sun deck, (snack) bar, sauna and massage services. Treading water to the sultry strains of son as 1953 Dodges and Buicks roll by, mojito in hand, makes for a memorable Havana experience.

Another is listening to opera on the hotel’s rooftop terrace: every Friday, you can catch performances by young, talented "Habana Clásicos".
