The Caribbean Hotel is possibly Havana’s best-located budget hotel. It is located halfway down the Paseo del Prado the border between Centro Habana and La Habana Vieja, and also very close to Parque Central and the Malecon.
Hotel Caribbean has 38 rooms, lobby, snack bar, Italian coffee shop, and the small Café del Prado restaurant. There are a number of inexpensive restaurants in the vicinity.
Unfortunately the 2006 makeover was less than ideal. Dark, poky rooms contain basic facilities such as shower, TV and air-con, but it’s all a bit rough around the edges and offers less value than somewhere like the Lido. Bargain-basement seekers only need apply.
