Location of the hotel is excellent close to everything you want to see and do in Old Havana. They have done a fantastic job of renovations in the lobby and restaurant/bar areas. The breakfast is excellent. The rooms leave a lot to be desired. They gave us a small room with no windows. Furniture is definitley dated and the mattresses a bit too firm. The bathroom was a large at the bedroom! Great to have a roomy bathroom however the toilet did not work and we had to keep a pail of water beside it to flush. Not the best. I did notice that they have started renos in some of the rooms but could not see what had been done. While i am certain that the currency exchange was not run by the hotel the service there does reflect on the hotel and quite frankly it was horrible.
Workman kept putting the scaffolding in front of the elevators which made it very awkward to use them. I would not stay at this property again nor could i recommend it. Our travel agent did ask us to take pictures and we did!
