DLook at the attached pics to see the state of this hotel. Utter waste of money. Rooftop bar non existent...the rooms on 3rd floor dont have windows, the doors which access views to terrace and seaview do not work, their frames are broken and delapitated. We had to change rooms because there was a facilities door in the room which has electric pipes. Couldnt not be locked. Staff could not provide keys to lock. Downstairs toilets had no toilet paper. Couches at reception filthy...see attached pics. Breakfast is not worth the money you pay for. Total disaster of a government run hotel. Luckily we we stayed one night.

Location of this hotel is amazing as its gives a great base for exploring old Havana! Building has great history being owned by a wealthy ship building family and history is provided in the room plotting the history over the years. As it turned out, the rooms our party stayed in used to be part of a brothel hehe! Rooftop area is lovely with great views, it's also right by the cruise ship terminal and large flea market which is good for a mooch around and souvenir hunting. Bar and service was good, breakfast was varied and fresh, staff wanted to please which sums up the Cuban people. Down side for us was the cleanliness of the room. Sheets were clean but pillows lumpy and duvet had an unpleasant odour. The safe in the room did not work and was not attached to anything so had to take all our belongings with us that evening. We stayed for one night as we did Havana overnight as a trip from Varadero. It may be that we were given the worst rooms?

Dear customer, thank you for your comments, it is really a pity what happened with the linen of the rooms in which they were staying, the whole collective of the hotel owners of Santander will work to improve the comfort conditions of the room, do not think they gave it the worst rooms, and I am sorry that they did not meet your expectations and without a doubt your comments are more than valuable for us since they will surely make us better.

On the main drag down from the ship terminal, this lovely old hotel is in a 200 year old building. Gorgeous architecture, friendly staff, we could sit on the upstairs terrace and watch the harbor or sit on the downstairs patio and people watch. Will definitely come back.

Just a few minutes walk from the busy square and restaurant this lovely hotel is set next to the harbour. The harbour is used by locals to commute back and forth to work so don't expect a glamorous view. It's industrial but a good way to see the real Havana. Our room did face the busy road and was noisy but your in a city!! A city who's transport is 50 years old!! That's why your there....! The room was a large tiled old fashioned style/Spanish influenced. We didn't have windows we had large door that went onto the huge balcony which is shared with other,although I think we were the only people there. Everywhere was clean. Sunloungers a bit old and falling apart but we're could sit on the seats. Breakfast was simple, hubby had an omelette and I had a toasted cheese roll and we had coffee and juices. Staff we very happy to see us and helped us when needed. I enjoyed this hotel. Yes noises and based round beside the locals and their homes but is that not what you go on holiday to Havana to see, the culture of others. Everywhere within walking distance.

I needed to access the internet for work reasons - this hotel provides 1/2 hour access at 2 CUC and 1 hr access at 3 CUC. Given we were parked in the plaza outside, this seemed the best option, along with an enjoyable cocktail or two in the bar.
