I used it as a two-nights stay in Havana before moving south. It is not my first stay there, and it is still solid and bearable. You should note that you need to wait for hot water to show up; the breakfast is in another building. Wifi is only in the lobby, if works at all. A/c

When visiting a country such as Cuba, an open mind and an open heart is truly recommended. Despite the negative reviews I read prior to staying at Hotel Saint John's, I am happy to report that most were unfounded. We stayed four days (March 25-29) in Room 1202, which

After our internal flight was delayed, we arrived very late in La Havana and we had to find quickly an hotel. We didn't have a lot of choices and ended up here. It was a very poor choice. The guy at the reception was terrible and we paid way too much for what it was. They

Hi, we had a safe in the closet. I asked the reception for activation, and they told me that they had to get the technician in to see if the safe in our room worked or not. When they told me that it would take several hours, if not all day for the technician to come, I went to plan B - money belt for passport and money and electronics locked in my suitcase. I hope you enjoy Saint Johns - it is very simple hotel in a great location. The staff are nice if you treat them with respect. They all lived the soft riffed I brought for them.

The pool was not open, was told guests have access to the pool at the Havana Libro three blocks away. The elevator works.

I don't know. Also with regard to hot water, they first claimed that you have to wait about 15 minutes before it warms up, then they claimed they were fixing the problem and offered the option of showering in an other hotel. When I did that, the shower was dirty with long strings of hair from a previous customer. When an Argentinian couple and I complained they made us wait 2 hours and nothing was resolved.

"Our room (1202) was street-side. If you want quiet, ask for a room on the opposite side of the floor. We had GREAT views."
"Do not stay here."
"Higher rooms and connecting rooms have more space if you are traveling with friends that don't mind sharing the space."
"Ask for one at the back as it will be quieter at least!"
"Do not stay here no matter what!"
