A trip through time and history

Mar 13th, 2020

This hotel has most of the original decor and art as when it was built by mobsters in the 1950's. it has a huge beautiful lobby where I am sitting right now enjoying a view of the Malecon and ocean beyond. There are numerous restaurants in the hotel offering pretty much anything you want at any time of the day or night and the quality is outstanding. There is often live music being played in the lobby as you get your wifi. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy both rooms and common areas. We met quite a few of the staff here and found that each one of them are more than professional, helpful and kind. We feel we have made some special friends with the staff here. A highlight of our stay at the Riviera was the personal historic tour by Ivis from Public Relations. She also went above and beyond with her service and was always available and accommodating. Be sure to ask for her. You will be glad you chose the Riviera hotel. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent service

Mar 3rd, 2020

I stayed here for 1 week with breakfast and dinner. The staff were lovely, the dinner was always excellent and included appetizers, main course, and dessert. They also had some nice artistic shows in the evenings in the lobby. Also, all the rooms had a nice view to the ocean. The building and pool were kept clean but a little old fashioned.

Amazing holiday in Havana Cuba!

Mar 3rd, 2020

We are soon thrilled with our stay at Riviera Hotel! We arrived late at night and everyone was helpful and our room was lovely. When we went for breakfast .... it could not get any better! Delicious, freshly made omelets exactly as requested, mimosas, excellent pastries, grilled veggies, smoothies freshly blended (even with fresh yogurt),meats,cheese, fruit and more than I could even list. The staff was so friendly and gracious! The dining, the lobby, the cafe areas are beautiful. We did not swim but others did and looked very happy. We walked all over, and did the hop on hop off everyday to tour, visit and eat in the beautiful new and old Habana! We even had a very fun ride in a pink old Chevrolet! If you come to Cuba and only do the beach, you miss so many awesome memories you could be making! A great big thank you to Riviera for a beautiful, relaxing time. We will be coming back for sure!

Best Hotel to Get WiFi

Feb 28th, 2020

The Riviera is a beautiful hotel with a magnificent view and very warm and welcoming staff. 1 hour WiFi cards are available at the reception desk for 1 CUC (the equivalent of USD$1), whereas many other places charge 2 CUC for 1 hour. There is a large lobby with an array of seating options and a bar overlooking the ocean. The staff is very attentive, and do not discriminate against non hotel guests coming to use the WiFi. Other hotels I have gone to to get WiFi will not have the same courtesy, and will not even allow you to sit in the main lobby. This is never a problem at The Riviera. The WiFi is fast and even allows you to download content with ease. Definitely the place to go! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Fantastic Staff - Everyone of Them

Feb 11th, 2020

This hotel was built in 1957 and was the dream of well known gangster Meyer Lansky. It was the best and most luxurious Havana hotel at the time. If you want real 50s charm at is very best you should to stay here. The hotel was extremely clean, the food very good, the complimentary breakfast was worth getting out of bed for, and the on-site French restaurant is to die for. The main attraction of this hotel was the staff. From the security people, cleaning staff, waiters and waitresses , to the reception desk everyone is pleasant and happy to serve you. The most remarkable staff member is Iris, Customer Relations, she is unbelievable and will do everything to make you happy that you chose her hotel to stay in. Sometimes a room is just a room but what makes one hotel better then the next one is usually the staff. In this regard, Hotel Riviera is a definite 5 star. The hotel is a ways from Old Havana and a cab will cost you 10 cuc or even more if you can’t negotiate well but there are many very good restaurant bars right around the hotel. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
