Well, the breakfast room .... the breakfast buffet wasn't bad but the place was so busy it was difficult to find a table to sit down. The two beds were reasonably comfortable. Otherwise, the hotel was bad news except for the location if you want to be near the malecon (waterfront) and Old Havana. I had stayed here a few years ago, and thought it would be better, especially after reading some so-so reviews here on tripadvisor.com. Alas, it was not to be. At least the towels were nice and the water warm. The hotel does have a small pool off the sixth floor, which I did not use but is there and functioning. Only one of the two elevators were functioning ... definitely inadequate for the number of stories and rooms. Adding to the negative thoughts I have about this place is the fact that construction directly in front of the hotel (2011) means that access is from the street corner only. (It is quite close to a famous, privately run restaurant ... La Guardia ... which is expensive .. by Cuban standards .. but very good though, three stories up! And, hey, while I think of it, if you want wireless internet access, it is available in the spacious lobby at the Hotel Sevilla in Habana Vieja for $8 an hour.) There are better hotels than the Deauville for the same price in Havana (in Vedado or Mariano) and a lot better for a few dollars more. Good casas particulares are also definitely an option in Havana.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This strategically located hotel is right on the Malecón seafront. The situation makes the hotel ideal for visits to the old colonial city and equally ideal as a starting point for the renowned Havana nightlife ... more less
