Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed at the Hostal Balcones Muralla for 5 nights and had an absolutely incredible time! Based right in the heart of old Havana it was the perfect base for going out to explore. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, assisting in booking tours and trips, arranging airport pick up as well as giving recommendations to local attractions and restaurants. They helped us get access to local free Wi-Fi and were always around to answer our questions. Every morning started with fresh cooked breakfast with juice, coffee and local produce, absolutely delicious. The room was incredibly clean with a beautiful view from the balcony onto the street bellow. Would recommend to anyone travelling or planning a holiday in Havana!

I stayed at this hotel for two nights before starting a tour around cuba. I cannot recommend it highly enough - the staff are all incredibly and made me feel completely at home, from arranging my taxis, to helping with excursions and a welcome cocktail on arrival! The rooms are charming & clean and the location is ideal, you really feel like you’re in the heart of the community! Food is unreal (I had dinner here twice!) & the chef was incredibly accommodating and was still able to provide the most delicious 4 course dinner without gluten or peanuts! Breakfast is served in courses out on the balconies & really is lovely. I can’t wait to come back - thank you so much for such a wonderful start to my trip!

This hotel combines the beautiful, unique interiors of a boutique hotel with a warm family welcome of a casa- which was perfect! The location couldn't be better- right in the heart of Old Havana. The staff were great and on arrival asked me what I would like to see or do during my trip and then made all the arrangements for me. They made some excellent recommendations- which turned out to be some of my best moments in Cuba. My suite was just stunning- the balconies, the bathroom, the chandeliers! I have been watching the hotel be renovated on Facebook over the past few years and my visit did not disappoint. I will definitely return soon!

This accommodation was amazing! The location was perfect, within walking distance to many main attractions, bars and restaurants. The place itself is clean and beautiful with antique decor that added so much character, and the breakfast was delicious. Finally the staff - simply spectacular. So helpful and friendly, really went above and beyond. Thank you to Hostal Balcones Muralla for giving us a great experience in Havana!

Great stay and calm moment of rest in the center of alive Havana. Great rooms, breakfast and very helpful staff. A Good start of Cuba Tour and getting to know Havana Vieja. Rooms were high and stylish and great airconditioning. Also good help where to get what , as we were in some problems because of the not arrived luggage.

Very charming hotel. We were welcomed like kings, the receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. He prepared the best mojito for us. The room was atypical, very clean and we slept well despite the bed being a bit small. The hotel is also located very close to the old square. I recommend the hotel 100% for the welcome, the decoration and the situation
