I flew into Varadero and took a bus to the Havana area but why not contact the hotel and ask them?

Wifi is available and quite good. You have to buy a card from the desk for 2 CUC. The card last for one hour and as long as you remember to log out, it can be used multiple times. I found this preferable to free bad wifi. The Cubans buy cards and hang out outside to use the wifi. As do guests from other hotels.

It's a fair size safe but I think fitting an iPad in there might be a tight squeeze depending on the size of your iPad of course. Still a bigger safe then other hotels I've been to.
