This is an inexpensive tourist hotel. You get what you pay for. I have no complaints. The hotel was pleasant, as was our room. It was small with minimal amenities, but that was what we expected, so it was fine. The hotel evidently has a problem with clients walking off with whatever can be lifted, so there wasn't much to lift, e.g. there's no coffee maker in the room, when that has become almost universal in hotels. (Cuban coffee to go is available just a few doors down at the Flamingo Cafe, where the staff will happily allow you to practice your Spanish. The staff at Ciao Bello, just next door, will likewise help you brush up on your Italian, but the coffee is twice as expensive.) The staff at the Clay was friendly and helpful. Valet parking was $20, which is reasonable depending on what you're used to. Espanola Way was a bit noisy, but it's a fun street full of good food and drink. The reviewer who complained about his $23 pizza didn't look very hard for alternatives. (See my review of Havana 1957, which is directly across the street from the Clay.)
