Positive Reviews

Charming old building

The Raquel hotel is located in an old building and many past guests have loved the architecture. While nothing in the building is new, it has been kept in good shape and the large pillars and stained glass have been enjoyed by many of the property's guests.

Nice rooftop bar and terrace

Many past guests have loved spending time on the rooftop terrace. There is a bar up there, too, so it can get somewhat loud during the day. This didn't bother most guests, however, as the noise wasn't excessive.

Good location

Since this property is located in Old Havana, many guests have mentioned how convenient the location is. These guests found it easy to explore the rest of the city from the hotel, especially many of the historical sites that are found in this part of town.

Negative Reviews

Poor breakfast

Numerous guests of the Raquel hotel have complained about the quality of the breakfast, saying that there isn't much variety and that the food isn't very good. This is an issue throughout Cuba, however, and isn't limited to this property.

Disinterested staff

There have been reports from past guests that the staff at this property is somewhat disinterested in helping guests when they run into problems. The staff in the restaurants isn't much better, as they take their time with everything that they do.

A little run down

This building hasn't been updated recently and, therefore, it is starting to get run down. The property could benefit from some renovations, according to a number of guests, although other guests liked that it's different than anything that they would find back home.
