FIRSTLY ~~ request a balcony facing the main street as many rooms have no windows. I was very happy with my stay here. My room was small but quaint and I saw some of the other rooms and they were quite spacious. My room was clean and my maid Alicia was amazingly great. The lobby and restaurant are extremely nice. The breakfast buffet was pretty decent actually ~~ fresh juices, fruits, eggs, meats, delicious cheeses, salads, meatballs... I was pleasantly surprised. There is a fun patio on the roof and in the front of the hotel... often with great live music. This hotel is in the middle of EVERYTHING. The cabaret bar at the National next door is a super fun racious bar. The Floridita is a block away. More about the room... My TV got some great english movie channels including Showtime so it was nice to take a break in my room. Upon checking in I suggest you tell front desk you want use of your room safe. You will pay 2 cuc (the Cuban equivilent of $2) per night upon check out - a wise investment.
I will definitely be staying here again. My bathroom was tiny but had great water pressure and was very clean and cute. Don't expect high luxury though.
