The Hotel Habana Libre (Free Havana Hotel), previously known as Hotel Habana Hilton, is a historic construction Modernist in style located in Vedado, and which was taken by Fidel Castro and his revolutionary army in 1959.

It was only called Hotel Habana Hilton for 9 months, until the revolutionaries named it Hotel Habana Libre, the name it holds to this day.

The historic relevance of this hotel comes from the time when Fidel Castro settled here during the first months of the Revolution, specifically in a suite on the 24th floor.

Its facade exhibits a nice 640-square-meter ceramic mural by Amelia Peláez, and the renowned Carro de la Revolución, by Alfredo Sosabravo, who used 525 pieces of ceramic to make it.

Nowadays, the hotel contains shops, as well as an interesting photograph collection concerning the period during which the revolutionaries occupied the hotel.
