Its Cantabria restaurant, specializing in food from the region of Santander, Spain and other dishes, is an excellent option for guests, whose stay will undoubtedly be unforgettable.

We stayed at this hotel in Old Havana back in April. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a great patio that overlooks the port of Havana. They also have a cute little bar that is open late. Breakfast was included but was very limited and average (it's hard to find good food in Cuba so don't let this deter you). Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful building, good location and great view

Nice place, well priced, nice rooms and nice staff. Make sure you get the rooms on the 3rd floor with Sea view, they have a huge balcony. Note that the rooms not all have a lot of day light coming in.

Good location, average hotel

The location was good, on the edge of the old town within walking distance to most tourist attractions. The building is an old building which is beautiful from the outside, however our room was old, cramped and damp with a leak in the corner. The air con worked intermittently and the whole hotel ran out of water on 2 days out of the 5 we were there. The maid also left the door unlocked at least twice after cleaning the room. We ate at the restaurant on the terrace one night, the service was terrible and the wait for the food was very long (despite the fact that there were only 2 tables of people), however when it came it was pretty good. The breakfasts were also really good with a great selection and very helpful staff. Overall pretty hit and miss.

Let me get straight to the point to help any potential travelers out there - Pros • Location is awesome. The market is a 2 minute walk down the street (highly recommend this for gifts, cigars, etc)• Breakfast is included• Staff are amazing and extremely helpful especially Onier who was incredible and couldn't do enough for us. He was out highlight.• Food and drink is reasonably priced • Nice little rooftop bar• Our room had a balcony that lead straight onto the roof terrace so I suggest you request this room 😀Cons• Breakfast service was extremely poor and slow. I suggest ordering as soon as you walk in to avoid any delays or you could be waiting a while!• Rooms are a little dated but this is Cuba so can you really expect more?Overall this is a great location to base yourself for 3/4 days whilst you explore Havana. Staff are amazing and make this place! Breakfast service pulled this down from a 5 to a 4 but it wouldn't stopMe going again!!

Nice hotel, good location close to Old Havana

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is a short walk to the Old Town area which has plenty to see, and has a nice view of the docks. It's an old building and oddly the rooms don't have windows as far I can tell (ours didn't), but the top floor rooms have a back door that opens onto the balcony (shared with others on that floor).The food was ok but on the expensive side. The breakfast was good, but took a while to get served on the first day as it's table service rather than a buffet. The next two days were quicker. It's worth asking for a few bottles of water at breakfast to take away with you so you don't have to buy some later in the day.Staff were all friendly and made sure we had a pleasant stay.The rates for changing money in the hotel was the worst I came across in Cuba. However, going to a bank will mean queues, which seemed large and slow everywhere. Better to change at the airport when you arrive.
