This was the last stop on our tour of Cuba. Perfectly placed in the centre of Havana for everything. Just looked like a large gate in the wall when we arrived. But what a beautiful courtyard once inside. Very old and very traditional on a cobbled street this hotel is absolutely perfect for a stay in Havana, one of the... More

Average Cuban Hotel. The room windows overlook the courtyard so there is little privacy on the ground floor if you open the shutters. The eco-friendly light bulbs give virtually no light. The breakfast in the pleasant courtyard is similar to every breakfast we had in Cuba. Why is Cuban bread so awful? An artisan baker would be a huge success.... More

The courtyard where breakfast is served, is nice. Breakfast is much the same as everywhere on Cuba at least within this category. Nice staff. We stayed here twice during our tour of Cuba, but the rooms where a bit on the dark and damp side and the visit from a huge cockroach the second time, made sure we didn't stay... More

The Beltran appeared charming and ideally located when I booked, although expensive, but that's par for the course in Havana now. The actual experience was shocking. Staff was rude and unhelpful - the only time I've had that experience in Cuba. It was essentially impossible to bathe in my room - there were no taps in the tub, there was... More

Really great hotel. Staff were so helpful and nice. Courtyard is beautiful and the rooms were very nice. Ty and get yourself into room 8 as it is something special. Highly recommend the hotel. Food is good and the mojitos are excellent. Shame about the pale yellow walls!

Your could not be more central in historic Havna close to Plaza Vieja and in an old Spanish Building. Only 11 rooms with fine comfort. Steep stairs and no elevator but with helpfull staff. Traditional breakfast with no extra and only 1 cup of coffee!

I stayed here with my husband for 4 nights at the start of our Cuban holiday. The location is great. A bit noisy as the hotel is close to the main square so lots of music and hustle and bustle, also some noise from the resident parrot but he's charming so has to be forgiven. The breakfast is good -... More

Behind it's impressively fortified doors the Hostel Beltran de Santa Cruz offers a welcoming sanctuary of peace, tranquility and order away from the scorching mayhem that can be Havana's streets. Check-in was cool, calm and in English and we were directed to Room no.3 ("The honeymoon suite ...." knowing smile) with an upward jerk of the thumb towards a large... More

People were very sympathic, the rooms were beautiful and clean. The yard is worth to be seen. The breakfast was not the best we had regardinf the choice. For cuba standards it was a very good experience. The location, the service and the cleaness of the hotel make it recommandable! It is a top three star hotel if not a... More

Good location in old Havana. Breakfast was average. Clean Hotel and renovated but still tired. An ok 3 star hotel but not 4 star. Court yard was good but was looking forward to the parrot but only sparrows instead.
