We were disappointed with the location of the hotel. We didn't realise it was quite so far out of Havana. Upon arrival the receptionist was helpful and friendly, as in fact were all of the staff. The room was large and clean, with a decent sized en suite. Our main problem's were food and drink. The bar had a snack... More

The room was big with balcony overlooking nature and cityscape. The location is good for reaching activities in Havana. The Guide Bus has a stop 500-600 meters away, right at the other side of Rio Almendares; less than ten minutes walk from the hotel. I used this hop on hop off bus and combined transport with sightseeing. On request they... More

This hotel's 3-star rating is fair. It main advantage is its being located in a very calm and safe area. Its main drawback is its location from the centre and the slightly old-fashioned and very simple rooms. A fair value-for-money overall nevertheless.

Stayed here as part of a college trip. The hotel itself was part of a pair, sistered with the Hotel Kohly a few minutes away. Kohly had more of the amenities between the two, but the staff at El Bosque were nicer. That said, a gift shop would have been nice at El Bosque. The rooms ere decent, especially by... More

Clean quiet pleasant, rooms clean. staff pleasant, a bit of a distance from central Havana. This is one of the nicer neighbourhoods of Havana. Can use pool and gym in sister hotel up the road. Food a bit hit and miss.

Stayed for 7 days. Pros: As many of the reviews say it is a quiet and pleasant place away from the main city of Havana. The rooms are decent and cleaned every day. I like that the maids take the time to do up the towels into beautiful swans giving that extra touch to make you feel better when you... More

We had a pleasant stay at El Bosque. The room was not large but adequate. It was clean and nicely decorated. The entire hotel is recently painted inside and out with warm colors. There is forest behind the hotel and a larger park nearby. I wish we had time to wander the area. I had very little interaction with the... More
