Definitely not boutique or luxury, in fact this hotel is the definition of no frills, and it lacks any havana charm too. The rooms are shabby and the decor is old and tired. It's not dirty but not spotless either - you won't want to pad around in bare feet, or lie in the bath. The beds are not firm and the sheets and towels have seen better days, but do appear washed. The reception service is perfunctory! The breakfast is OK - although there were always queues for tables.

We didn't move elsewhere as we were only here for three days and didn't want to waste time looking for another hotel, besides as somewhere to run in and out of, it is tolerable. Also, on the bright side the location is not bad, the Hotel Nacionale is just up the road for somewhere to sit and relax with a drink :) , and it's about 5 CUC in a taxi to Havana Vieja.

If you're on a student budget then fine. But be warned this is cheap, but no bargain.

Otherwise spend a bit more - as there are some great looking hotels in Havana Vieja. I didn't see the rooms but all of the following have great bars and plenty of old world charm : Hotel Florida, Seville, Ambos Mundos or Inglaterra - do go to one of these!

Spent two nights there going in and out of Havana. Very well located. Fairly clean for a run down place, clean linens, hot water was spotty, breakfast good. Service people very attentive and it appeared safe - no issues when I was there. Not a place I'd take my wife - I'm 50 - but good for a mission trip or for the young with tight budgets.

Room Tip: None better than any other.

This hotel is simply terrible and seriously run-downed. Do not stay there, for cheaper you can stay in a very nice Casa Particular, they are all over the place in Cuba. The Vedado looks like a 1 star hotel in the US or Europe. There are graffitis in the lobby and the elevator including one charming one that describes a part of the female body. The bathrooms are nasty and the lobby looks terrible. The St. Johns nearby is a much better option, but again a Casa Particular is cheaper and much better.

We had one last night in Havana after spending 3 days in the south. The agent at Infotur in the Hotel Ingleterra managed to find us 2 rooms in the Vedado. The hotel's seen better days (like most of Havana - ie pre 1959), the bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom was run down. But it did have cable TV so you could catch up with what was happening in the real world, plus internet in the lobby. Breakfast was reasonable. Location was OK - near the Nacional, which is great for a drink in the evening. We walked to the Capitolino (30 mins). The waterfront is 2 mins walk. If you're stuck it's an OK option, just don't expect a lot - like friendly, attentive staff.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that doesn't face the street - really noisy. Not that it bothered me too much...

Love to be on this area: you have the famous malecon, Havana's sofa by the ocean, a mere 5 minutes walk away. There is also a good choice a private restaurants nearyby and a couple of clubs/disco as well as the famous jazz bar "la zorra y el cuervo" (the fox and the raven). I like this hotel (which is now a complex together with hotel st johns) because it offers terrific value for money. Those complaning here should come to England and pay £50 a night to sleep in a dump. I would understant the dissapointment if you pay over the odds by if you pay what I pay (£14 per night per person incl. breakfast - http://www.cubadirect.co.uk/hotels/info.aspx?id=451) then is simply impossible to complain. £14 per night for a great location in the Caribbean! Come on guys ... be fair. Breakfast is buffet which means you can feel your belly and no need to have lunch because in the heat of Cuba your body will ask for a lot of liquid. Hotels were also recently refurbished (I know St Johns used to have problems with hot water - not any more) ... So: you have a nice pool, great location, fantastic price, decent rooms ... if you are on a budget, I cannot recommend enough these 2 hotels: Hotel Vedado and Hotel St Johns

Room Tip: as I always say in the case of Cuba hotels, dont bother asking your travel agent. Do what is right a...

I had booked this hotel on site - being in Havana, and I really liked it. It is inexpensive option, and it is nothing special, but for the money I have nothing to complain about, just the absence of Internet. Room was good and clean, a/c worked just fine, the location was safe, it was easy to get the taxi for 5 (3 if you are not in front of the hotel) cuc to go to the city center. And it is really close to the Hotel National, where we had walked for the concert.
Breakfast was poor, but had eggs cooked to order and toast, again, for the price, it is easy to have breakfast somewhere else.
