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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Dirk W : Mermaid Beach, Australia

The hotel is overlooking the old, dirty, neglected harbour part of Old Havana. On the other side is a petrol refinery that emits a huge plume of black smoke ; with the wind in the right direction, you can smell it. But it is only a short and easy walk to the "better" part of Old Havana (few blocks walk to Plaza de San Francisco). We had an enormous suite with high ceiling, plenty of room and comfortable bed. The bathroom, like the rest of the building, is old, but OK. Our room was facing the main road along the wharf, which is busy day and night. As our windows had no isolation at all, the noise was overwhelming - a real problem, extremely noisy non-stop traffic. We very much enjoyed the a la carte breakfast. There is a rooftop where you can have a drink, but we had to go and find staff to get us our mojito. The bar downstairs is good and offers inexpensive, delicious sandwiches.

We should have stayed here

We were members of a small tour group who rejected the idea of returning to our booked hotel for lunch because of the bad experiences we had there on our first day. Our tour guide contacted Armadores de Santander and had a positive response: of course they would welcome us for lunch.Although they had set up the balcony for a function later in the day, they were happy to show us the grand views from the balcony and to settle us in a nearby dining room to serve us a very well priced and delicious lunch and drinks. After lunch, we were invited to explore the rest of this very gracious building, where all the staff members we encountered were very hospitable and helpful. Next time we go to Havana, we will try to stay here.

Little Gem

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.
