I stayed in this hotel as part of a 10 day trip around Cuba to celebrate my 30th and was not disappointed. It's location is superb for exploring Havana Vieja and is only seconds away from the beautiful Plaza Vieja.
The service was excellent, smiling and helpful reception and door staff and the building itself is magnificent. Huge columns greet you as you walk up the marble stairs, look up at the orange and yellow stained glass ceiling before climbing into the polished cage lift.
We asked to stay on the top (3rd) floor which was an excellent choice. It was quiet despite being next to the lift, we had two large windows overlooking the walkway, and easy access to the beautiful roof terrace with views over Plaza Vieja its a wonderful location to sit and have an evening drink. Little tip though, the mojitos here aren't the best in Havana maybe stick to beers or Cuba Libre's.
The room was huge - practically a suite - a tad on the dark side even with windows but that was fine. It was clean, tidy, plenty of storage space. We did have separate beds - perhaps only compliant. All in all we loved our four night stay here!
