We stayed here twice during our trip, 3 nights over New Year's & another night on our way back through Havana. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of Old Havana & close to everything you need. The streets outside are blocked to vehicle traffic so it can be difficult to get there in a taxi, which is really only an issue when coming from the airport with luggage. If you book a taxi through the hotel though, they'll tell the driver how to get to the street at the side & avoid you having to carry your luggage along cobblestone streets for 4 or so blocks!
Our first night we were given room #9 with no toilet seat (they told us it was on the list to fix but still put us in the room?), no shower stand & no hot water. They moved us the next day to room #5, which was better but still no hot water. On our return stay, we were again given a room with no way to hold the shower head up & no hot water. For the price you pay(about 160 CUC per night) you should be able to have a shower at then end of the day.
That said, the rooms are huge, have a working safe, comfortable beds, etc. The cigar shop & restaurant in the hotel are great. I wouldn't stay here again though as there are plenty of hotels around where you can get the same & a shower!
