Need help with a 4* or 5* hotel January 15 weekend

I'm having a really hard time finding a hotel in Havana for the weekend of January 15 in the 4-5* categories.

Any suggestions? I've tried several and they are all fully booked.

I had the same problem this past week. I honestly think that the nice hotels in the city arent really booked - they are reserved for tour companies who do the booking for the hotels... As an alernative - check out Air BNB - they have a lot of postings for Havana and I stayed in two great places - with no problem and likely a nicer place than some of the supposed 4 or 5 star hotels... If you really have your heart set on a Hotel - try the Hotel Capri - its run by the NH hotels brand - is in a great location in the Vedado and their staff is excellent along with probably the best views of the city (as long as its not too smoggy)...

Thanks for the advice. I did look at the site but traveling alone I think I would be more comfortable at a 4-5* hotel.

I am in the US. Do you know a tour operator I could contact?

If the operators haven't sold their blocks, do they typically release them back to the hotel by a certain date?

Meliá Habana seems available... Are there restrictions for direct booking if you're based in the US?

Hotel prices have sky rocketted. I suggest staying in Miramar, you can get a villa at Hotel Comodoro. Do not book on this site as it charges a Euro Rate.
