I was shocked as it was still as cheap as before & the elevator actually worked. They gave me room #505 which was actually decent. I had a problem with toilet but didn't want to move as I had a good balcony view & the room was renovated. The handy man fixed it in an hour. I'm use to it not having hot water but I got quite a few warm showers in which was also a surprise but wasn't needed as it was 35-40c outside. The food still is not very good but I only ever ate my free ham & cheese sandwich for breakfast anyway. The staff all remembered me & most knew my full name. I am pretty hard to forget but still it was nice to be treated so well & remembered. The world cup is on so the lobby bar was busy with locals during games but I had no issues. It was nice to see that they done renovations to the hotel as it was pretty run down & the elevator never use to work half the time. great location as it is centrally located near the malecon & a block off the prado. you can walk anywhere from here. I get treated better then most there by what i have read. i had a Cuban stay with me & it does say no guests in room if they are not staying in the hotel but they never stopped me when i brought a swiss tourist up to my room. maybe nobody saw but nobody said anything. That rule is in place i think because you do get local women in the lobby & they want to make sure they are paying guests if they want to stay in the hotel. they are not going to let tourists bring locals or friends up to their rooms without them paying it when they have only paid for single. Do the math for those who complain about this. They would be losing money if they had too many beers & slept in your room. This is happens in many hotels not just here.
