My brother and I took a gamble on this one: we decided to try a more boutique hotel vs. going for one of the main hotels in the city. It paid off. We thought this charming, old monastery was a lot of fun and had character. It was in a fantastic location - right in the heart of Old Havana and near a couple of the more interesting and beautiful squares. We liked our room, the staff and the general vibe. This hotel definitely provided us with a more authentic feeling of staying in Havana and there were some pretty decent restaurants and bars nearby. It was also nice to be close to the water. On the flip side, our room didn't have windows so it was pretty dark and we were woken up by sawing and hammering each morning as there was construction going on on the ground floor. But it didn't start too early so we didn't mind too much. We'd go back again.
