We stayed here for a night at the start and one at the end of our holiday. On both occasions we thought the venue to be OK but the breakfasts were a real let down. The location is reasonable, just off one of one of Cairo’s main roads (Arab League Street) where there are plenty of places to eat and a metro supermarket is a short walk from the door. Wireless internet was provided for free and there was a computer room which charged for use by the hour.
The Havana Hotel has a reasonable lobby area and incorporates an Egyptian cafe next door. The two rooms we stayed in were spacious with en suite shower rooms but everything felt a little scruffy. The big problem was the breakfast, which was minimal and provided in a windowless gloomy room in the basement. I suspected that staff were supposed to greet us and offer coffee/tea, omelettes, toast, etc but this did not happen. The two women staff I saw at breakfast seemed only interested in chatting between themselves while doing their best to ignore us. A large TV was turned up annoyingly loud playing Arabic dubbed American soaps which I switched off each morning with immediate approval from other guests.
The hotel is OK if you get a good deal on the price, but if you want a good breakfast you should go elsewhere. My further tip would be to avoid rooms near the stairwell as sound carries from the lobby and may disturb your sleep.
