We booked the hotel on a B & B basis with a Virgin Atlantic flight intending to use the hotel as a base, as it was central and relatively cheap. This worked out just as we planned it.
The hotel is celebrating its 100 years this year but apart from a couple of notices they are not taking the opportuntity to sell the hotel.
The best thing is the roof top breakfast area - the food itself is on the poor side with little variety and suffers from almost daily changes of staff, most days 1 of the 2 coffee machines was not working as a result the other ran out quickly and the staff were slow to restock.
The building itself needs much money spent on it, but that is the beauty of it, as the style comes from the early 1900's - including the furniture, everything is big - with high ceilings, though a tad on the shabby side
To sum it up - old fashioned - Cuba style - but as with the rest of Havana if you use your imagination you can see in your minds eye how splendid it must have been.
Definitely a recommendation providing you do not expect 4*, which it claims to be, just enjoy it while you can.More
