A 4 stars hotel with no warm water, failing appliances in the rooms, non working lift, fire stair blocked, super noisy all night long, and the list goes on ... Not worth one fifth of the price. Sad because the people working there are friendly and do the impossible to try to cover the mess the place is. Sadly, a State owned place to be avoided.

There is nothing positive about our stay in this hotel. If I could rate it lower than a 1 star, I would do so. The service was close to hideous, and let’s just say, they are willing to rip you off from the minute you enter their doors, be careful! It’s the closest thing to a hostel, however, you are paying hotel rates! Breakfast is well below average, the rooms are ordinary and shower... terrible. Highly recommend spending a little more money to stay at a better hotel as it will change your experience in Havana. They do not offer free water of any sort to brush your teeth, therefore all water supplied is charged to your room! Any be very careful if you do use the water in the mini bar, they did manage to change us upon check out for water not consumed!

Had an absolutely appalling stay, room stuvk of sewage, no running water hot or cold for most of the day, when it was on for an hour or 2 the water was a trickle, ended up washing with a bottle of water. Sheets were washed but had staines, and muddy foot prints all over them, the view is of a slum, the food limited and stale. More like a hostal, if you're fine with slumming it then this wont be a probably for you however this was not a place o would want to stay whilst on a break

This is so far from a 4 star hotel EVEN FOR CUBAN STANDARD. the amenities are horrible. The location is great but do not expect a quiet night of sleep. There's always someone yelling by your window or a dog yapping! Breakfast is just not eatable. I would avoid this place and would not recommend it.

I really liked this hotel. But first the faults- there is never any hot water. There was no natural light in the room. But... You actually don't need hot water, because the weather is usually hot and humid. And the rooms have a great feel. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are spacious. But what you do get is atmosphere. It is a converted mansion. It is gorgeous inside. The main foyer is beautiful. This is where the great house band- Son de Oro- play most nights. The bar is friendly, attracting a happy older crowd of tourists. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is great. One needs to keep in mind this is Cuba. Not everything works like home. But if you have been to Havana you know the pluses always outnumber the minuses! And so it is here. Try it, you will like it.

This is a fabulous old palace converted into a hotel. It has so much potential. But sadly it is wasted by the owners who run the place. There was no water for 3 days. I got stuck in the elevator for a half an hour Mid floors. I forced the doors open to find written notes from other guests who have also been trapped in the past. So clearly the Manager did not bother to get the elevator fixed. So it may happen again. The breakfast choices are awful and except for the eggs totally unhealthy. The food manager needs to wake up and do his homework about healthy food in 2017. Great location. So much wasted potential.

This converted colonial mansion lives on past glories, with grand public areas. We had a large, windowless room on the third floor, accessed via an ancient lift,. We were told on check-in that there was a temporary cut to the water supply in the neighborhood. We still had no water for showers or toilet flushing when we departed the following morning. The hotel is very well -placed near restaurants and the attractions of old Havana, but the rooms could do with a makeover.

I must admit that my Wife and I did not stay here but we wished we had. The hotel was the former home of a French planter during the Colonial Period and it is gorgeous. The staff were as friendly as we had experienced in Havana and it is one of the very few places in Old Havana (Habana Viejo) where you can get wi-fi (with the purchase of a internet card). It is in a good location, close to many sites, eateries and local hangouts. I would recommend.
