The hotel has a great location, two blocks from the beach, and just of Ocean Drive, and a large communal parking area just next door.
The hotel has a nice reception area, and friendly staff that replied instantly to questions about availability of rooms and rates, prior to booking.
As some reviewers have remarked, there is no lift, so if you have very heavy suitcases and have difficulty carrying them up the stairs, I would agree that this is an inconvenience but for most this is just a very minor problem.
We stayed for 7 days in total, but with a 4 days road trip in between, so got to see two different rooms, both of which were very nice, with nice marble floors, and great sized bathrooms with nice metal features for the bathroom sink and stone table top, and showers with great water pressure. Our rooms were cleaned thoroughly every day, and had no problem (as some reviews otherwise remark) with the house keeping.
The rate included breakfast, served by a very friendly Cuban waitress, so the hotel offered very good value for money.
The Spiga restaurant, which is on the ground floor of the hotel building is also excellent, and even if our visit was prior to the renovation, the hotel can be recommended without hesitation.
