I was cautious when booking this hotel, as I had heard mixed reviews. I need not have worried, this hotel was brilliant and I would happily return, should I be in Havana again in the future.
The rooms are large and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and there is plenty of hot running water. The air con is effective and is definitely needed in Havana!
The breakfast is plentiful, if not very exciting. There was always fresh fruit, bread and eggs. There was a live band playing during breakfast each day.
Music is a key theme in the hotel and there are frequently concerts and performances. We arrived on opera night and although not being opera fans, we decided to give it a go and we loved it.
The hotel do a deal 'bottle of 3 year old Havana Club rum & 4 cans of coke for $12' this is a really good deal and kept us going for our stay in the hotel.
The location is just a short walk from the hustle of the old town. Easy to access, but just on the edge to give you some peace and escapism from the noise of the streets.
The best thing about this hotel is the beautiful pool. I loved exploring Havana in the morning and heading back for a refreshing dip in the pool in the afternoon. Ideal!
The only point to note, is that should the hotel book your onward bus tickets for you, you will be charged $2 a ticket for this. I wouldnt have any concerns with this - it is a booking fee- but they do not tell you this, you discover it for yourselves later on.
This is a beautiful hotel, a bit in need of TLC, but then most of Havana falls into this category, ideally located, with good rooms and a pool - the perfect base to explore Old Havana!
