The hotel is very clean and sophisticated looking. I searched every part of our 2 rooms and they were spotless. Everything appears to be relatively newly renovated. It is a great bonus to have a mini kitchenette (sink, microwave, fridge, glassware, and utensils) in the room. The beds are very comfortable and you a given a 'pillow menu' as to choose which ones you will find most comfortable. There is a large closet with a safe in it (big enough for a 13 inch laptop.
The bathrooms are very nice. The mirror and all of the stainless steel fixtures get covered in condensation when showering, except for a square of the mirror directly above the sink that you need. It seems that they treat that square of mirror with something different during cleaning, as to prevent it from fogging up. This small detail was great, both surprising and pleasing. However, some of the fixtures, such as the towel rack in the shower, have a little bit of rust on them. It is very minimal and almost unnoticeable.
The large window (it looks like it used to be an operational sliding door) was covered in condensation when I awoke this morning, and the tracks of the window/door were dirty. The radiator under the window/door can also make some noises occasionally. Once again, not a big deal. It took me some searching to find anything wrong with this room. The staff did an amazing job cleaning it.
The TV in the room is rather large (maybe 40 inches) and there is free WiFi for 4 devices per room. The sauna and work out area are very nice and clean, and the work out area gives a nice view of the city. The outdoor patio is nice, but closed during the winter, which is sad for us American's who want to enjoy our Cubans. Safe and private parking is provided under the hotel for $18 a night.
The location of the hotel is a plus. You are located walking distance to downtown and there are many restaurants surrounding the hotel. There are also bus stops located all over the city, which you can ride for 2 hours for $3.40 (but pay the exact amount because no change is given back).
This hotel was a great value, very clean, and looks very classy. I highly recommend this hotel!
