In case you stay at this hotel... Tip 1 - to flush the toilet (at least on the third floor) you need to hold the lever up for 15-20 seconds. Tip 2 - DO NOT stay for dinner - expensive, lukewarm and small portions. There are plenty of much better places a short walk away. Tip 3 - go up to the roof terrace around 7am. The bar won't be open but you'll see the early morning sun on lovely rooftop architecture and you can watch the city wake up before you hit the breakfast buffet (which is excellent, a complete contrast from dinner). We had an 'inside' (i.e. no windows) room, but it was clean and spacious enough for a couple - and who goes to somewhere like Havana just to sit in their room?
