Friendly service but "shabby" doesn't begin to describe this run-down, noisy place in a busy street; however it was clean. This is a place for impecunious students, young people with a limited budget and no need to sleep, as the cheerful singing and laughter deep into the night indicated. Needing to be in Havana at that time, we had had... More

I just returned from a one week stay at this hotel. I'm a solo traveler and booked through Sunwing Vacations. The hotel has been operating since 1953 and looks that way. I had a room toward the back of the hotel without a window allowing a view outside. Although it was a little inconvenient not knowing whether the sun was... More

clueless and grumpy service at breakfast - if you do not speak Spanish then do not bother, no windows in the rooms, and lots of noise up through the atrium, from all the staff shouting at each other (as Cubans do) from about 7am onwards. Good location on the Prado and the receptionists were lovely. Sinple, tired decor - what... More

Before visiting this hotel me and my friend prepared ourself for a horrible experience. All reviews say that they steal, and the hotel is dirty etc. This is not our experience! The hotel room was ok after the 2 star standard, and we where actually positivly surprised by many things, maybe because we expected the worst but I am really... More

I just came back form my vacation where I stay at the Islazul Hotel Caribbean located in Old Havana...What they do is this, they steal your things a little bit at a time so you may not notice...for example, I check the balance I had in my safe and there was $40 dollars missing while the remaining $280 was still...

as one of the reviewer says (and i should have listened!) big mistake. Not sure how this "hotel" gets all these compliments. But this is budget at its cheapest form!!! not even sure if the location can compensate for that! The Rundown: its on a busy main road, windows from the late 50's - so forget about getting some decent... More

location, location, location on a budget. With this hotel, you get the basics in Old Havana. No pool here, no wifi, none of that fancy stuff. A room, a bed, a washroom, a tv with cable(the luxury). Unlike others, I had no bug problems, my AC was cold, my property was not stolen, my room was kept clean (my maid... More

I stayed in this hotel for 10 days. While the room was small with two beds, it was alright for what I paid for it. There was hot water for the shower everyday. Breakfast was included and consisted of a scrambled egg, two slices of toast, some fruit, a glass of juice and a cup of coffee. An extra cup... More
