The hotel is quite old and the pictures definitely make it look better than it is. The room we had was okay, but had a terrible smell of damp and the ledge looking out of the window was filthy. The shower had seen better days but the toilet was in working order. One of the beds was not straight so... More

I stayed at this hotel from 18 Jan to 28 Jan 2014. I would have said that it was an OK hotel to just have a place to sleep but there where at least two days where there was no hot water. The AC in my room also was a problem and did not work properly. I awoke one morning... More

I stayed at Aparthotel Montehabana in 2013, using vacation package, explicitly stated included breakfast plan in its details. However, when my wife and I headed to the buffet in the morning, we were stopped by the hotel clerk, saying that our voucher does not include breakfast plan, and that the word BP printed so clearly on the paper does not...

It didn't start out well and we were excited to be in an aparthotel as we like the convenience of them. We checked in and were given key cards, but when we opened the door, after some fiddling, we discovered that it was already occupied by two men, who were as surprised to see us as we were to see...

We traveled to Havana to visit the city and the area. We found the Montehabana Hotel was ok, we had rented an appartment and it fitted our needs. It was spacious and clean. We only used the Hotel buffet restaurant for breakfast as we were leaving early each morning to walk the city. We used the pool twice, at the... More

The pool is also at the sister hotel. good size pool. very loud music. if you are thinking about relaxing this is not your place. BTW, Cubans love loud music. no free wifi. As conclusion... More

I've traveled around the world and Montehabana is without competition the worst hotel I've ever stayed in! The cleaning is a joke (see pictures), the food is terrible (we all got sick) and you have to fight the flies and birds for your food (indoors), the service is poor. For the love of God, please stay in another hotel!

Our team of 26 stayed at the Montehabana for from April 16, 2013 to May 4, 2013. It was a wonderful stay. This was our fifth trip to Cuba and we have been all over the island. I would rate the Montehabana as the best hotel/resort we stayed at. You share facilities like the lovely pool and dining room with... More

The building is located in the "exclusive" quarter Playa Miramar of Havana, meaning that you are away from the chaos and activity of the center of the city. Roads around are large, which means that it is a bit easier to arrive here by car. Receptionists are professional and friendly. Apartments are large and clean. They are in principle equipped... More

Overall a good hotel but it is some distance from old havana, but they do provide a free bus service to get in and out at certain times a day. Breakfast wasnt brilliant, nice big pool and nice bar. Rooms were pretty spacious and clean
