Great location, lots of excitement right outside the door and the street theatre from the balcony was very entertaining. We switched to a front room, for $42 for the 4 days, where it is noisy indeed but we simply closed the windows and ran the air conditioner all night and that regular A/C noise was better than the irregular and...

This hotel is in a great location. When I checked in, I was given a room with a window. A few days passed and an alternate concierge was working and advised me that the room they gave me (when I checked in) would be an additional $30CUCS because it had a window. When I asked why I wasnt informed of... More

Good view with a balcony. One of the bad points is that it's noisy. small but clean. very basic. water warm, not hot. It's not the Ritz Carlton but if you are on a budget, it's the place to stay. Would not recommend the safes.

We booked here through cubahotels, we asked them to check if the reservation was ok they said yes. When we arrived there first the guy in front didn't tell us anything ,we then add a little adventure to get some money for the cab (you cannot use a mastercard in cuba to withdraw money) finally when we got back to...

The location is what makes the stay here worth it. The hotel is ok, like other travelers report, it is dingy & could use an update, but the room was clean, had hot water & decent water pressure. The AC worked well. The beds aren't very comfortable but I'm not picky so I didn't have any issue sleeping. Breakfast was... More

Stayed for 4 nights and the hotel actually exceeded my very low expectations. The location is really nice and some of the staff was friendly and helpful. The cleaning lady did an excellent job. With a smile and understanding for what Cuban standards are like you get a reasonably good place to stay for a very low budget. Breakfast was... More

We stayed here in early December 2015. This hotel is good value for its very central location. It is more earthy and idiosyncratic than the more bland 4 or 5 star hotels nearby. The staff were not afraid to show their personalities in various ways which you would not see in better hotels. The hotel did not disappoint in incidents... More

While I do not give this property a great rating, I can tell you that my stay here, considering the fact this is a communist country, was "ok". I always say "Give me a clean bed and a clean bathroom, and I'm OK". Well, the room was clean but in serious need of an "update" with paint. The breakfast was... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during the month of december. For some reason I forgot to book my hotel in La Habana with time and this was the most decent one I could find with available rooms. The hotel has a very good location and you could walk anywhere. They do not offer city maps though, so try to... More

Location is great! Lobby is ok. Our room was really bad (see pics), our friends got just the same. Clean but bad. But then you must take into consideration that the general standart in Cuba is different! We stayed 3 nights. The elevator did not work for 2 days, there was an electricity outage and for half a day there... More
