This hotel is crammed full of character. Only 9 bedrooms , but at least two peacocks,three chickens, a cat and one world class cigar bar, complete with a guy hand rolling the best cigars in town. The hotel is a converted house in the heart of the old town, a short walk from 'San Francisco Square' and all Old Havana... More

We first visited the hotel 2 years ago as part of a guided tour taking in the on site cigar shop and bar, so taken by it we chose to spend the first 3 nights of our holiday in Cuba here and we're not disappointed. The hotel is full of character and not a sterile modern place, if that's what... More

A lovely hotel, centrally placed in the old town with plenty of character, The staff are very helpful and friendly and English is understood and spoken. The rooms are large but the bathrooms although having modern equipment are rather worn.We had a room at the side of the hotel and music from the cafe in the side street was loud,... More

Normally I stay in casa particulares but thought I'd check out this place. Beautiful old charming mansion that was converted into a boutique hotel. Great location, close to Plaza Vieja, Calle Obispo, Plaza de Armas, etc. Rooms are large with really high ceilings. The breakfast is better than I expected, the service is good enough. I like this place much... More

We traveled all over Cuba from Casa's to the best hotels. From Havana to Trinidad and every place in-between. By far the Casa's (people homes, like a B&B with your own bathroom) were the best to stay at for price and food and experience. Although in Havana the Iberostar Parque Central and the hotel Nacional De Cuba were epic they... More

Hotel has excellent location in the middle of Old Havana but still quite, good night sleep. Everything is in walking distance. It is great experience to stay in the old palace with high ceilings, nice patio, many old decorations. I had spacious Junior Suite with the view to the small street. Because the building was renovated many years ago, it... More

We arrived late and received the last room - a bit small. The next day they moved us to an amazing large room and separate facilities. Lovely!! The breakfast was more than we could eat!! Met some lovely couples while at the hotel. I am a massage addict and they arrange for an excellent masseur - reasonably priced - to... More

Stayed here in May for 6 days. The hotel is situated the best way possible: 10-20 minute max walk to all the main attractions and sights. All the rooms in the hotel are situated on the second floor. Warning - there is one room without windows! Maybe it's good for people who like to return to a really quiet place... More

We stayed here for four nights and were very impressed with this picturesque hotel. The room was massive and very clean. It may be dated but what in Havana isn't? It's perfectly located to explore Havana Viega and is easy enough to get anywhere else. The staff were friendly and helpful (waiting staff could sometimes be a bit rushed) and... More
