We have arrived very late, because we had to wait 3 h 15 min (THREE HOURS AND FIFTEEN MINUTES!) to get our luggage at Havana airport and still the check-in took AGES! Rooms were terrible, air-co was extremely noisy, there was a party going on for the biggest part of the night, so we didn't get much sleep. Sink in...

Well not exactly the location we had hoped for a bit too far out from old Havana for us. We had to pay 15cuc into town and the same back so became but more of an expense than we'd planned for bit didn't break the bank! However rooms although dated are very clean and did the job. Plus they are...

Being quite far from the center, the hotel came with free access to the outdoor swimming pool at Club Almendares as well as another bigger hotel nearby - and I also had access to that hotel's weight room. That hotel was 5-10 minutes walk. The first room was unacceptable, but was given a better one as soon as I complained,...

Hotel situated 5 miles from city entre, taxi cost 10 CUC. Original tour itinerary indicated we were to stay at the iconic Hotel Nacionale near the city centre, changed to Hotel El Bosque before departure and classed as a hotel of a similar standard. Very wide of the mark. Hot water hard to come by and you have to run...

Although the standard of hotels in Cuba is not good, this outlet must be one of the worst. We were in a group of 34, alas the hotel could accommodate the entire group, even though it was confirmed, the manager couldn't be bothered to come and talk to us to try and rectify the problem, instead he sent his assistant...

Last year I stayed in the sister hotel, Kohly, just a block up from El Bosque. El Bosque is much quieter, with basically all same features. It is a real three star hotel, as it advertises. Staff was very helpful. The night crowd of young Cubans consuming hotel's wi-fi in the wee morning hours was amusing (unlike smoking middle-age men...

I was not at all pleased with this hotel. The room was dirty and there were no screens on the window. Mosquitos were able to come and that was unpleasant. No air conditioning in the lobby where breakfast and lunch are served and where the bar is located. Not pleasant. Beds were very hard.

We had a great stay, the room was clean, the bed comfortable, the breakfast tasty and different every day and the staff were very kind and helpful; when we arrived I was suffering from an eye infection and the staff went out of their way to help me. There is also an internet cafe and pool which was amazing for...

Go to Cuba to see the culture, and enjoy the food and weather. The Hotel Kohly el Bosque is simple, nice, clean and good value for your money. Breakfast is included. The breakfast is nice, simple and plentiful. There is a nice restaurant around the corner from the hotel. This hotel is far from the old city of Havana, but,...
