The twenty-story Iberostar 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, the elegant restaurant and cafeteria, which also amaze everyone with their remarkable 50’s atmosphere, and the outdoor swimming pool with its impressive springboard.

Many of its 352 rooms have been recently renovated and feature today most of their 50's splendour. They are also, spacious, clean, comfortable. Not all feature a balcony but every one of them offers great sea views and the sunsets seen from the hotel are something unique.

The views in fact are one of the main virtues of El Riviera, together with the great 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 (business district).

Today hotel Iberostar Habanal Riviera is managed by the Spanish chain Iberostar, which is a guarantee of high standard and service.
