The Hotel Raquel offers the visitor a reception 24 hours and multilingual persons (Spanish, English, French, German, Italian), safe (uniformed security personnel 24hrs), tourism desk, Car rental desk, medical services 24 hours and national and international telephony.

On the other hand, like gastronomic offer, the Hotel Raquel has the Restaurant Jardín del Edén, only in the country that offers Jew traditional food.

Opened up in May of 2003 and belonging to the Hotel Raquel, it constituted one of the most interesting gastronomic proposals in the city.

The offer combines classic and renovated recipes of the Jewish cuisine (almost unpublished in Cuba), in which stand out "Borscht", the "Salad Israeli", the three types of Shashlick, and like accompaniments, flavorful Latkes or "Kugel of vegetables". The space and the decoration has great elegance.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Raquel in Old Havana. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2017
