A fine hotel with old world charm. Our room on calle San Rafael ,with balcony, was comfortable but with simple decor ; the bathroom was clean and roomy .But there was a problem when I tried to pay the rest of my stay with a credit card. I had given a deposit with hostelbookers thinking I could pay the balance with my credit card. Impossible . The manager told us to get a cash advance at their in-house exchange counter.The rates were the worst you could find in that city. I definitely got the feeling I was being taken for a ride. If you want to buy alcohol ,coffee etc at their gift shop then , of course, you can pay with your credit card !! You feel there is something wrong somewhere .The hotel restaurant is very expensive for the money : try Los Nardos close by - highly commendable. Listening to the music group on the terrace is a worthwhile Havana experience. The charm and location are great but be prepared for surprises and don't expect any help or warmth from the staff
