The Location is perfect; you walk out of the hotel turn right and after 30 yards you are exactly where you want to be, in Plaza Vieja one of the 4 main squares, and one of the more lively ones.
The hotel itself is charming; an old original colonial house turned into a Hotel many years ago, a bit like a national trust hotel back in the UK, no modern amenities here, all authentic rooms with old furniture including the beds. For this reason the plumbing is ancient and the showers are just about usable, don't let this put you off. If you want sparkling showers and bland interior you need to go elsewhere
We paid a bit extra and stayed in the junior suite, which is a beautiful room, with high ceiling and separate lounge area, but if you suffer from heights the staircase to the room will be a bit of a task.
Breakfast was nice, it is nice when they ask you how you want your eggs, and the parrot kept us company. The patio/ courtyard is delightful was a great place to hang out and enjoy a quiet moment.
Your first reaction to the street where the hotel is situated may initially give you some trepidation of where you have landed yourself......don't worry you have arrived smack bang in the thick of Havana, which is one of the safest cities around due to the friendly locals.
From this Hotel most of the attractions in Havana are within walking distance, this is worth taking into consideration when making your choice.
So to summarise a charming hotel lacking modern amenities in a perfect location......Ideal for 1 or 2 nights sightseeing but as a long term base find a more modern hotel.
