Arrived late on Oct 25 and stayed 4 nights at Hotel Saint John. Good: 1 - It was only a block from the infamous Malecon and the National Hotel. If you are a walker is was not too far to Old Habana, the market, etc. 2 - We were given a "matrimonial" suite on the 12th floor with a view... More

I just left cuba , I had a terrible expierenced at this hotel. There was no hot water , all the safes do not work , Windows don't lock, and there is a night club on the top floor which left me a little concerned that anyone could go to your floor. Elevator was pretty sketchy and the breakfast was... More

Clean place to stay at reasonable price. Good location in the middle of the city. I had a bad experience with the Security chief – young and corrupted man who took money from me by lying. I can provide more information To Whom It May Concern.

Old, extremely low shower pressure, dirty room. Breakfast, pool, and wifi are not actually in this hotel. You have to walk to a near by hotel Vedado to get all these amenities. Won't stay there again!

Hotel St. Johns is a Budget Hotel with lots of potential,but in need of some serious maintenance and repair. By No means was I expecting a 5 star palace. Its a 3 star hotel by cuban standards but perhaps 1.5 by international. Pros: -Very Friendly & Helpful staff -Good drinks at the lobby bar -Great location in Vedado within 1... More

Rooms are comfortable, have air con and there is a swimming pool on the 14th floor on the roof top with stunning views across Havana. Staff are friendly and accommodating and... More

St. John's was our basecamp for a university group visiting different locations in Cuba. The overall impression was...meh. But ok. St. John's and Vedado hotels are side by side hotels in one of Vedado's busiest and smokiest streets. In our group, rooms differed quite a bit regarding quality. My room was on floor 11 with a great view, I had... More

We stayed here one night and the location is great. Hotel elevator was a little slow ( expected w/ older buildings ). The rooms were clean and there are several places to eat nearby. Our overall experience was good for the price range
