The hotel has a great central location. It as a charm of and Andalousia like Spanish palace not really my taste. As all critics say it, it’s obsolete : rooms are clean but air conditioning is deficient and it smells like humid in the room. A half bottle of rhum and big bottle of water are house gifts. Despite being clean the towels smell like poorly dried. The staff is nice except for an old unpleasant and grumpy female at the desk. The outside bar is major attraction with live music, unfortunately unable to serve any cocktail besides Mojito (not good by far). The rooftop bar also as music in evenings, beautiful view over old Havana, but unable to prepare a Pina Colada as they don’t have pineapples (those you can get for 3 cts, 2 blocks behind hotel) - I am talking not one day, but for our entire week. Breakfast is decent but I personally don’t have sautéed pork or pasta carbonara at 8 am. WiFi is available, a little slow, you get an hour free card if you stay one day or one week. Elsewhere the star rating would barely be 2 stars.
