This hotel brims with character and even a little attitude. If you like standardised big chain mediocrity this is not the place for you. The rooms are clean, well fitted and interesting. The staff are bright breezy people who make you feel welcome without getting in your face.
The hotel is about ten minutes along the riverside walk from the heart of the touristville San Antonio (and of course the Alamo) but I preferred to sit in the Ocho bar and drink cool Mexican beer than fight for tables with conference crowd downtown.
If you are a light sleeper then the air con can be noisy and the floors creak as people come and go - but as I said this is not the kind of place you go if you want sterile, silence and disposable slippers.
The full size fridge in the room is filled with a selection of great beers, the bathrooms have great soaps and lotions - small touches that all just shout individual !
Hotel Havana is one of my favourite hotels for many years and proof that there is a market for individuality, style and great atmosphere.
