This is my preferred hotel when staying in San Antonio. It's right off Riverwalk, if that is what you are into, but I prefer it because it's close to almost anything in SA. The restaurant, Ocho, is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But really Ocho is just a beautiful space. The bar downstairs has great cocktails and is nice... More

This was a cool hipster hotel downtown San Antonio. I arrived late in the evening is the hotel was quiet. It is very dark and clean and smells of incense. When I got to my room I was pleasantly surprised to find a Smeg fridge filled with glass bottled sodas, water, and alcoholic beverages.b what a nice added touch! I... More

This hotel could charge $400 a night in NYC... The bones of the hotel are great and the renovation was not overly done. The sandalwood incense wafts throughout the lobby and rooms. I was worried about the noise from other reviews but we had a room facing the parking lot. A pro tip - don't spend $17 a day on... More

Its unbelivable, but I got a room with windows facing the hotel bar "Ocho". There was loud conversation and laughing till 2am. To think I payed 200 dollars for a terrible stay it makes me so upset. The room was clean though,thats the only pro I can think. Never again!

Unfortunately due to the 100 year age of the hotel you can definitely at times hear other... More

The bad things first. Loved the hotel a lot but some things could still be improved. We too stayed in Room 15 and our friends stayed in the room directly above us. We were lucky and knew they would not be up all night moving furniture and walking around but i can understand how a previous reviewer had problems from... More

I enjoyed my room in this recently renovated old hotel. It's part of a small Texas chain that has a lot of style. It's on the river walk and for my tastes a much better places than the international chain hotels a little more in the center.

We stayed in room 15 this weekend, and we were so impressed with Hotel Havana. It's beautiful and comfortable. You can tell that every detail was chosen carefully, and aesthetically it's hard to beat. The location is perfect, since it's on a quieter part of the River Walk. We had the unfortunate situation of having a downstairs room which would... More

We came to SA just for the hotel experience and it did not disappoint. Similar to Liz Lambert's other properties, HH is fun, hip and funky. From some of the other reviews, it seems some rooms are better than others. We had room 37 and had windows on three walls. The bar and restaurant were both fabulous. Will definitely be... More

If you love the funky creativity, old-world ambiance of a fun boutique hotel with excellent and discreet service, check out Hotel Havana. It is located on the northern section of the San Antonio Riverwalk--near the busy restaurants, bars and shops but just far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. The lobby is classic, dark-stained wood with high ceilings. The... More

Hotel Havana on the River Walk was the perfect place for a romantic weekend trip. Cool, comfortable, charming. The restaurant "Ocho" was amazing. Breakfast was out of this world! It was also great for drinks and dessert. Get a table overlooking the River Walk. This place is on the quieter part of the River Walk, but still a convenient location.... More
