As a first-time Cuba visitor, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. As other reviewers have noted, the maintenance and upkeep are a little sketchy here, but Hotel Kohly works just fine. It's definitely not luxury, but a fine place to stay a few nights if you're more intent on seeing Havana then having a special stay at a nice... More

It's Cuba, so expectations are different, but it took several tries to finally get a room with a toilet seat. Cold showers two out of three mornings. Excellent breakfast. It is an out of the way hotel 10CUC taxi ride to central Havana. Interesting neighborhood, lots of military officers live in the area. Hop on hop off bus stops 55-10... More

This was my second visit to Havana this time to attend a wedding in the city. Hotel Kohly popped up and looked okay, suitable as a Bed and Breakfast. It was in the suburbs of the city about a 10 minute taxi from the centre of Havana, you can also walk down the hill to the main road and there... More

This hotel does require some attention and updating...wires from the Reception ceiling, only 1 working lift, poolside needed tidemark cleaning, Reception toilets had no running water and smelt badly. But, the staff were pleasant and helpful; our room was clean, tidy and generous single beds. The TV position was at a strange height - good for accidental head banging. Breakfast... More

Last minute booking for us after problems with other accommodation. Rooms comfortable, pizza good, breakfast weird with dishwater coffee and some strange tasting stuff (don't get me wrong I've enjoyed some odd food over the years but this was just strange).

The hotel is pretty average, with nice rooms and a large balcony. There is a pool, which seemed very popular (we didn't use it though) and the common areas are large and cosy. The best thing about the place is their pizzaria which served very nice pizzas for around 4 CUC. The hotel is very far from the old part... More

I was pleasantly surprised! This hotel is built around a beautiful shaded courtyard that constantly has a refreshing breeze passing through it, and a very nice clean pool. Our room was spacious bright and clean especially the bathroom! Our room also had a safe, as well as pre-converted 120V electrical and USB charging outlets. The breakfast buffet had loads of...

It's a very tourist hotel but an average option in Havana. If you don't want the experience of staying in Cuban's houses (casas particulares - which I would recommend), then this is ok. You can buy internet vouchers for 30 or 60min but internet connection is not great in Cuba anyway. Big rooms, good pool and games room options but... More

Hotel hadn't received our reservation prior to our arrival and they asked us to pay for a one night deposit which they would refund when the issue got sorted (we eventually ended up exchanging for an extra night). The hotel was extremely helpful throughout this minor ordeal. Hotel is not in the middle of hectic Havana and you will need... More
