Old fashioned, great rooms!

We stayed in this hotel for a week in September. The city was just recovering from the hurricane and there was a slight problem with water on day 1 - but it was fixed! Rooms were great - spacious, balcony, view of the harbour.All the staff were very friendly and helpful.At breakfast although we were given quite a comprehensive menu, most items weren't available.The hotel is in a great position - walking distance to the plaza's and market.At night you can walk up to the top of the hotel, where there are chairs and tables (take your own drinks) and admire the view.... great place to sit and relax.

Best mojitos in Havana!!

At 3.50CUC this place not only has the best value mojitos but also the best tasting mojitos in all of Havana. We went there every day for 4 days and had two or more each. Well recommended. The WiFi is good too, but you have to pay for access from Etecsa.

4 days in Havana :)

We spent 4 wonderful days at Armadores de Santander Hotel. The staff were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was large, exceptionally clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were minutes away from the Plaza Vieja and our hotel looked out onto the port. The market is a five minute walk.The food was lovely with a lovely selection on their menu. Definitely try their omelettes!!If we return to Havana in the future, we will most certainly be staying in this hotel.Thanks for a wonderful stay

This is the place to stay in Havana

We stayed here in our last night in Cuba, it was the best hotel we stayed in. The room was huge, very clean, beds were comfortable and staff was extremely friendly and helpful. You have to visit their terrace. The view is great, especially at night. The food was delicious and reasonable priced. The location is also very good and you get very easy to locations worth visiting. As we had to leave early in the morning, before the breakfast was served, they prepared for us a sandwich and a freshly pressed orange juice so that we do not leave without having eaten something, which it think was a very nice gesture from them.

Centrally Located and Quaint

This is a grand-dame hotel, located in Old Havana, just a brief walk from the Plaza Vieja. You will like the marble staircases, metal accents, and the high ceilinged rooms. My room (#310) had a back door that opened into a rooftop terrace shared with other rooms on the third floor, which was a nice touch. The A/C thankfully worked pretty well - the air got warmer for a few hours at night, but then bounced back. Breakfast was good - the chicken croquettes were great, and you could order anything from the menu despite the fact that we had a package deal that included breakfast. The drinks were good - they make a very refreshing frozen daiquiri. Bathrooms were fairly modern with plenty of hot water and updated fixtures .With all this said, keep in mind that this hotel - along with all other hotels in Cuba - are not up to developed world standards, and you may sacrifice some comfort and convenience for the sake of charm, authenticity, and adventure. For example, the beds are comfortable, but not plush. Some of the furniture may be worn. You need to drink and brush your teeth with bottled water,The staff was accommodating and responded quickly to requests, but they may not be as pro-active as you see in hotels in the developed world. Keep in mind that all the staff in this hotel are government employees earning about $50 / month and have never been outside Cuba or stayed in a nice hotel and really have no point of reference. As long as you keep this in mind, and don't expect the same experience as you would in Monte Carlo, Paris, or New York, you'll enjoy your stay. There's enough charm, friendliness, adventure, and authenticity to make up for that.
