Debated between two stars and one star. Tough call but since I really did have fun there, I gave it a two. As other reviews say, nearly everything doesn't work and you definitely don't want to walk barefoot anywhere. The front desk is grump city. Every day no matter who was working. When they couldn't change Canadian money (don't bring American as it has a 10% discount everywhere) which was most of the time, they just turned around and ignored the request. The rest of the staff was largely nonexistent as the maintenance demonstrates. Do check your toilet, shower, and air conditioner before accepting a room. Many don't work at all. I read bad reviews of the breakfasts, but they custom cook omelets and have lots of fruit so it worked fine for me. Which is more than I can say for the elevators and the air conditioners,
What saved the place from a one star rating was the bar staff. Everyone was super nice. All spoke good English if that matters to you. Good bands at the bar every night (as elsewhere throughout Havana) and we just couldn't avoid having fun. Also, very near the Nacional and the waterfront. So hey, I've been in far worse. I wouldn't pick this one though.
