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.

Our room had 1 single and 1 double bed, quite comfortable. The bathroom was fantastic. After a week's travels it was decadence itself to enjoy a nice hot shower. They have laundry service. The AC unit was quiet, the neighborhood was quiet at night. The sun deck was a great place to relax and read. Ernesto and his staff were friendly and very nice. We highly recommend this Casa Particular.

Hostal Mercedes is the best Hostal to stay in all of Cuba. With world class food and service, it excels any Cuban restaurant experience. Ernesto and his staff made us feel like family, as if we never left home. We were treated like royalty, an experience that was unforgettable. Hostal Mercedes from now on is my go to lodge to stay whenever I am in Cuba. You will not regret staying here. It is a magical experience in the heart of Havana!

The family are very welcoming and friendly. The bedroom was nice and cleaned daily. The overall facilities were beautiful. The downside is the distance from Havana and the fact that the taxis are expensive to get back and forth. The overall atmosphere is quiet and relaxing.

Cleaning is perfect, security is perfect, staff is very good, location is good. I felt very secure in this establishment. It is about 20 min to Havana city center and need you take a cab which costs to 10 to 20 CUC according to your bargain.

Great casa particular in the Playa/Miramar district of Havana, close to la Rampa and Malecon. Very clean and safe, with a nice summer terrace. Winderful breakfast with delicious fresh fruit, ham and eggs, tasty coffee and juice. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Hostal Mercedes for four nights over New Year. It's a beautiful villa set in the safe, leafy Havana suburb of Playa. Getting in and out of Havana Old Town will require a bus (the hop-on tourist bus stops very close) or a taxi, but those rides are interesting and enjoyable in themselves. The ensuite rooms are excellent, and the room service - indeed the service throughout - is first rate. The staff are fun, friendly, helpful and have some English - but are also patient if you want to try your Spanish. We will all remember the party on New Year's Eve with the family, friends and food!

We spent a wonderful New Year with Ernesto and his team in a lovely house in which we felt very much at home. Location is good for getting into old Havana by bus or taxi. Food was fabulous and the house bar perfect for a nightcap after a busy day soaking up the sights and unique culture of this warm, vibrant and friendly country. A particular highlight was experiencing a traditional New Year Cuban house party with wonderful home-cooked food and salsa-ing through the night with brilliant company and our very own traditional Cuban band of outstanding musicians. Highly recommend Hostal Mercedes.

Excellent service, makes you feel like family. The food is far better than any restaurant out there, with their excellent professional chefs. The rooms makes you feel like you never left home . With outrageous and gorgeous bathrooms, with colorful, mathching tiles, big plasma tv, and a very comforting bed in every room. Great bar, with an outstanding bar tender. Great big patio that you can sit and read quietly or sit with your loved ones and just talk for hours with that outstanding Cuban breeze. Definitely will go more than once. Now I know where to spend every summer and makes me feel like I am still home but with better views. I really do love this place and I recommend it to everyone looking for a place to vacation. Great for buisness trips, couples looking for alone time, family trips, a amazing place to go with your friends and going solo is as good because service makes you feel like family. THIS IS A MUST READ, YOU WONT REGRET IT
