Stayed here for 7 nights September 2012. Once arrived the man behind the desk was very helpful and friendly and ensured I settled in ok.
The room with its 12 foot door in green and white alongside the high ceiling was a real gem within this colonial mansion. The furnishings blended in nicely and even the bed quilt complemented the rest of the room. The bathroom was pleasant and I was impressed with the black floor tiling, however there is no door on the shower so you end up flooding the bathroom. My advice is to sit down.
Overall the cleanliness of the room was pretty good although the cleaner doesn't have much attention to detail. Cleaner is quite pushy for a tip.
The courtyard with its pleasant plants, chickens, peacock and house cat added some magic to this hotel that you can't get anywhere else.
Hotel staff work hard and are very pleasant. I made sure I left them plenty tips. I don't think the security guard appreciated me knocking the door at 2am when I stumbled in from a night out!
Breakfast was nice however the bread is a little dry. The eggs and bacon are lovely.
The location is ideal as its in the wonderfully restored old Havana with its cobbled streets and architecture. Close to many attractions including the Chocolate Cafe, Malecon, San Rafael Cathedral and around 15 mins walk to Parque Central. Many shops including a bank, cafe, supermarket and smoking shops all within vicinity.
My minor gripes of this hotel were the room was a little on the dark side and a Buffett breakfast would of been to more people's liking.
Overall this hotel is fantastic not luxury like a modern 5 star with the latest technology and comfort but a piece of colonial history and architecture you appreciate staying in.
