Probably expected more given the publicity pic of the room with the four poster. We had 301 - comfortable enough and with a bathroom the size of the bedroom - but not spectacular. Some of the dimmest lighting I've ever experienced and a view of the run-down residential area behind the hotel. Best to keep curtains drawn. Reception first class,...

Great location overlooking the Port of Havana. Some of the rooms are rather grim and without windows so make sure you get one of the rooms with doors leading out to the huge balcony. The staff were very friendly here, particularly in the bar where you can have a good snack lunch. There's also a restaurant on the top floor...

Buildings joined together with some staircases going to some floors then walk along a corridor to another staircase to get to other floors. The floors are swept not washed, so never really clean in the room. Service is fine, breakfast is included and is ample. Our room was two at some stage in it's existence- large room with 2 separate...

For Cuba, this hotel tries hard and staff have a great attitude. They are trying to serve. Rooms are fine and you simply have to use the Terrace. It has great views over the harbour and, importantly for Cuba, it picks up the wifi. (Wifi in Cuba is single network and there are few hotspots) Good bar downstairs as well...

Hotel overlooking the water in Old Havana. Slightly dated rooms but is quite common in Cuba, they were clean and spacious rooms though. Hotel does not change money so bear that in mind as currency exchange outlets usually have long queues.

We loved our stay in this hotel. It is centrally located and really authentic. The staff at the reception is very nice and friendly. The room was big and the bed was good. The breakfast was good, although on some days there was not many to chose.
