If you are looking for reasonable, clean accomodation in Havana, the Kohly is worth considering. Yes it's a little tired looking and the grounds around the pool are shabby but it's a great place to swim, sunbath or enjoy an inexpensive drink. The rooms are small but the plumbing works and the maid service is first rate. The best part... More

Great hotel with loads of amenities for a great price. Breakfast is included and although there is not a lot of variety of food it was still handy. The pool area was great and the lobby was a great place to hang out. Internet was intermittent but I hadn't expected any service, so it was a nice surprise. The staff... More

Definitely not 5 star, and I knew that. Staff are great, rooms clean, no bugs. I read reviews about noise... they were being picky. Our room backed onto the pool area so we heard the music a little from the room. It didn't keep us awake. The birds early in the morning were a bigger disturbance. Location is OK. felt... More

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
