Hotel Melia Cohiba, Havana Cuba


An Overview by Authentic Cuba Travel

Perfectly located in one of the most famous areas of Havana’s downtown, the Vedado neighborhood, the luxurious 22-story Melia Cohiba hotel is a five start hotel that opened its doors in the mid 1990’s. The hotel features a large swimming pool, fitness center, sauna, business center, shopping arcade, art gallery and the Ache Disco.

The Melia Cohiba hotel combines resort style facilities and a central location, right on the Malecon (Havana's waterfront boulevard), facing the Gulf Stream, and only 6 km away from Old Havana, which makes it an ideal base from which to explore the sights and sounds of Havana City.

With stunning panoramic views of the city and the sea, all of the luxurious smoke-free rooms are air-conditioned and offer all the necessary comforts and amenities such as hydro massage bathtubs, flat-screen TV, satellite channels, in-room safe and mini bar, hair dryer, direct dial telephone and internet access, and 24 hour room service, ironing facilities, etc.

The hotel features the famous HABANA CAFE, a Hard- Rock-style cabaret that recreates the 1950's Havana ambiance with motorbikes, vintage cars and a plane as part of the decoration. The best live entertainment in the city can be found here every night from the classic Buena Vista Social Club to the best Cuban salsa bands and everything else in between. The exquisite and diverse dining options at the Meliá Cohíba have earned themselves quite a reputation in the Havana gastronomic scene. The modern, seductive atmosphere, with romantic corners and sea views accompanied by the superb live music, makes the hotel the perfect place to enjoy flavours, aromas and joy that will take you on a gourmet journey from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean.

The hotel also features a well-stock CASA DEL HABANO where hotel guests can enjoy cigar tasting, drinks, cocktails, liquors, coffee and buy Cuban cigars.
