I booked this hotel through sunwing tours and will discuss them at the end of the review. Upon arrival at the hotel Kohly, I was told there were no rooms available and was directed to another hotel approx. one km away ,hotel "el bosque" when I got there I found that it was really a sort of workers hostel for...

First time staying at this hotel for 5 days. When I arrived I was given a room on the 3rd floor facing the street, the room was in very bad condition all the windows (glass) were replaced with wood, it was pretty scary. I went down to reception and asked for another room and was given one on the 4th... More

Our experience at the Hotel Kohly was a very positive one. The staff was helpful when asked for information. However, they could really do better with posting information on events and what's available at the hotel. We didn't know there was a syncronized swimming show one evening for instance. The rooms were clean. The bed was not the softest, but... More

I would say that based on the other TripAdvisor reviews, Hotel Kohly was better than what I was expecting. The pool was bigger and nicer looking than what I saw in the photos. The hotel has an internet cafe (I never used it, so I don't know whether it was dial-up or highspeed), wifi (6CUC/hr - not cheap, and for... More

I stayed here for 3 weeks in January. My room was right over the bar, so was noisy with loud music and shouting during the day and till the early hours. My friends in other rooms overlooked the street, which was noisy with tour bus traffic. Bring ear plugs. You may or may not have warm water in your shower.... More

I stayed here for the month of January 2015, while taking a course. This is a very modest hotel in terms of facilities, food and amenities, but a very interesting place to stay. In one month, I shared the place with Angolan soldiers, African, medical students, European salsa dancers, Canadian students of Spanish and North Americans seeking good medical and... More

If you are expecting 5 star luxury, this is not the hotel for you, Parque Central, Saratoga and Capri are 5 star (and 5 times the price).This review is based on my stay there from 29 Dec 14 to 05 Jan 15.I visit Havana regularly and usually stay at the Paseo but it was full. The Kholy is situated in... More

Hotel Kohly is located in a residential neighborhood of Havana, within 20 minutes of the center, easily accessible through the Machinas (old cars that now function as taxi-buses). The hotel is simple but comfortable, has a swimming pool, a nice outdoor cafe and a restaurant. Dance classes through different programs are helf there. The staff is very friendly and will... More

I stayed at Kohly for a week. Everything is basic, but my plans were to tour as much as I could and see as much as Havana as possible. I preffered paying taxi's rather than stay closer to town where the hotel costs are higher. Very clean hotel. Very friendly staff. If you need anything, just ask the front desk,... More

For being in the city, it is very quiet and the garden with the beautiful pool make this place a nice retreat to relaxe. Our room was big with a nice balcony with a beautiful view of Havana. We met many people who stay there while taking Spanish lessons. Right beside the hotel is a restaurant called Mi Patio and... More
