Great location. But third rate hotel in a communist country. Nice people but run down. Lack of investment So typical of third world communist country hotels. Better bring cash. Breakfast buffet was good.

Good place, Internet, restaurants and all you might need, but for the price in Cuba it misses some details here and there. The staff is kind, patient and helpful. It needs WiFi around the swimming pool and usb chargers here and there. Maybe it’s not the hotel as much as the overprice.

This is a great hotel- get the upgrade so you can stay on top three floors with cash exhange at bank rate, breakfast and a great view. I liked the hotel. I dont recommend going out at night. Havana is reeling economically. Also, if you are of color- you WILL face discrimination in Havana. In the hotel we of set this with tipping- and we were ok... in our tours and ESP at the airport, we were treated very very poorly... like dirt. I like this hotel- I would visit it again- if it wasn't in Havana. Read less

Nice hotel with excellent breakfast buffet. The rooms are a bit old fashioned but in total a good 5 stars hotel. Pool and bar available on the roof top. The service is very good, unfortunately not all employees speak English.
