For the price, this was a very good deal. The hotel is centered in the heart of the city, thus allowing for any business a traveler may have in the city, to be close to the hotel. The hotel is also a historical landmark, as it was the site of the mid nineteen sixties revolution that could have lead to another situation like Cuba in 1959, had it not been for the American government's interceding. The hotel is lined with marble floors, and stained mahogany wood doors, giving it an air of old school class. Although the linen and covers were old, the room was clean and well kept by the maid. Breakfast was served in the morning, and tips were appreciated. There was free Wi-Fi in the lobby and on the second floor common area, but not in the rooms. Thus if you have free cellular telephone text service through the internet, it is a way to keep in touch without running an outrageous bill.
The Casino was modest, but at least it did not seem to be infested with pick pockets or thieves. The 2 Disco Lounges (Pure, looking at the left side of the hotel entrance, and Taboo, looking at the right side of the entrance and in the back) were a bit too loud, and could be heard in the rooms, long after midnight. That could be discouraging for some visitors trying to rest, but for others looking to experience a lengthy nightlife, it can be inviting. The Taboo serves Johnnie Walker Blue label, which could be enticing to the connoisseur of fine drink.
Overall I would recommend this hotel.
