Had completed lots of research about this Hotel and Havana well in advance as really looking forward to the holiday.
The Hotel is everything that encapsulates the atmosphere of Havana. Colonial and atmospheric from the word go. Staff polite but not over the top. previous reviews about surly staff intrigue me. In real life, these guys are there to get through their busy day and I would imagine a great deal of their clientele are business persons who don't expect a lot of fuss.
Lobby amazing with dining adjacent. Reception staff stated that we had a great room selected and they were not kidding. Expansive colonial style three bed room with balcony overlooking the busy square. Atmosphere levels cranked up again! Massive closet with safe, enormous bathroom! Again very well decorated atrium style area outside room. Mini bar stocked with water, soft drinks and beer at guess this NORMAL prices and ice cold.
Rooftop bar wonderful venue with inexpensive cocktails, attentive staff. Food was mixed grill themed but delicious. Great view.
Breakfast was varied and set you up for the day in old town Havana. Were allowed free access to rooftop pool of Hotel next door.
Overall great experience and to be recommended.
