Sevilla by Melia Highlights

Our Rating ★★★ ½
  • Largest outdoor pool in Old Havana
  • Excellent location near many major sights
  • Attractive prices for an Old Havana hotel
  • Ornate Roof restaurant with a unique dining location
  • Part of the fabric of Old Havana with a strong history

The Melia Sevilla has a superb location in Old Havana, adjacent to the famous Prado street and close to the Malecon sea front promenade, Central Square, and within walking distance of Old Havana’s main tourist sights. The Revolution Museum and Belles Artes Gallery which are a stone throw’s away.


The hotel has a rich history and has been a popular meeting place for Cuban high society from the time of its inauguration in 1908. In the 1930s, the notorious mobster Santo Trafficante had shares in the hotel and Al Capone and his mob lived on the 6th Floor of the hotel whilst looking after their business interests in Havana.

The Melia Sevilla benefitted from a refurbishment in 2023 and has a large outdoor swimming pool, quite a rarity in Old Havana. Other attractive features include the palatial rooftop restaurant, an enormous and elegant dining room, with amazing views of the city, and the perfect location for breakfast or dinner, and where regular evening cultural performances take place.
