The twenty-story Habana Riviera is no doubt one of the most interesting mid-twentieth-century buildings of Havana, and the Cuban hotel that best preserves the atmosphere of the 1950s.

Built by mobster Meyer Lansky in 1957, it was the largest casino-hotel in Cuba (and the world outside Las Vegas) until the Havana Hilton surpassed its size a year later.

On entering the lobby, visitors will be struck by the original furniture, gorgeous marble floors, the beautiful sculptures commissioned to important Cuban artists of the time, the pink leather mirrored doors, the lobby bar featuring spectacular sea views and live music some nights. The elegant L’Aiglon restaurant also amazes everyone with its remarkable 50’s atmosphere, and beyond the lobby is the outdoor swimming pool with a pool-side cafeteria.

Today the hotel counts with 200 rooms that have been completely remodeled and the only ones that are accommodating guests.

Its best appeal today is its location, right on Havana’s Malecón, offering wonderful sea views and within walking distance to many of the city's attractions as well as theaters, concert halls, and restaurants both old and new. What’s more, Vedado is midway between Old Havana (the historical center) and Miramar (the latest business district).

All its rooms offer beautiful views of the sea.
