We had no problems checking in. We stayed in El Comodoro for 3 nights before heading to Varadero. When we tried to turn the tv on, we noticed the plug adapter was missing. We called the front desk and a young men brought one. He expected a tip which we gave him, although the adapter should have been in the... More

We started our tour of Cuba here and were not that impressed. But after having sampled other Cuban hotels, we reckon it wasn't too bad either. We had a huge bungalow apartment, with big bedroom, living area with non-equiped kitchen (not that we would have wanted one anyway) and good-sized bathroom. Beds were fine. Bathroom tap gave good jet of... More

We stayed at El Comodoro Hotel in Havana from Tuesday, February 17 - Thursday, February 19. It most certainly is NOT luxurious or anywhere near a 4 star, but it was a good option for Havana. It was safe, clean "enough" and comfortable. The saddest part for me was seeing how amazing it must have been at one time. The... More

The travel agency must not look at the Hotel Reviews, or they are just interested in selling tickets. This Hotel, in it's current condition, should not be included in any travel agent packages. Check in at the hotel was fine, but the check in was at midnight with no other customers arriving. Must say that the staff were friendly, with... More

There is no way that this hotel can be considered a 4* hotel! It might have been a 4* in the 50s, when it was built, but not anymore. Now, it is hardly a 2* hotel. I will never come back and I will not recommend to anybody. Very few water for the shower, no hot water at all in... More

After a 10 hours flight and 1/2 hour drive, my first impression of Cuba could not be worse. We stayed there 3 nights, and we changed rooms 3 times. First room did not have hot water, the second room (a bungalow) was too close to the bar pool wirh music and people shouting 24/7 making it impossible to sleep, and... More

I booked this place online and it looked fine. Well I would not put a dog in here. That is if a dog could live with all the dirty tatty cats that are here I think to keep the rats down. The whole place is run down broken, dirty and the electrics are a joke. Plug sockets hanging out of... More

Booked a bungalow and upon arrival we were put in a very dirty one with rats droppings all around the room. We were moved to a different bungalow the following day, but even that was not much cleaner, although no rat droppings were in sight. All in all, we couldn't wait to leave. On a plus side, it was not... More

We spent a horrible three nights in this abomination. Food was horrendous, cold and unpalatable. Staff with two exceptions were indifferent to hostile. Rooms were dirty with ant colonies and cold water. Having previously stayed in decent hotels in Havana I can say this is the worst by some distance. Please avoid.
