Bordering the harbor stands the majestic Armadores De Santander Hotel. Many of the rooms offer a  view of the ships as they enter and leave the harbor. 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.
Location: Located in Old Havana.

Great Hotel

Didn`t stay at this hotel ( I visited after my cruise). Located 5 minutes from cruise terminal in a lovely busy location on main road, good for sitting with a cold drink people watching.Nice open terrace at front of hotel with seating area and lovely open bar, clean and modern but has kept its oldie world charm.

Great location, reasonable hotel

Probably expected more given the publicity pic of the room with the four poster. We had 301 - comfortable enough and with a bathroom the size of the bedroom - but not spectacular. Some of the dimmest lighting I've ever experienced and a view of the run-down residential area behind the hotel. Best to keep curtains drawn.Reception first class, friendly, helpful.Otherwise service was rather average - certain members of staff definitely not friendly but I did wonder whether this was perhaps Cuba's idea of "more formal" service in a "grand hotel". I'd have preferred a smile.Breakfast was decent provided you wanted what they had. Extensive menu handed out but much of it not available. And the coffee!!! ugh!Didn't eat any other meals there - but the terrace was a great place to watch the comings and goings in the harbour and enjoy a relaxing beer.Great location - but slightly let down.Our safe was broken but we were offered the use of a safe in reception.

Great location in Old Havana

Great location overlooking the Port of Havana. Some of the rooms are rather grim and without windows so make sure you get one of the rooms with doors leading out to the huge balcony. The staff were very friendly here, particularly in the bar where you can have a good snack lunch. There's also a restaurant on the top floor overlooking the harbour. Apart from exploring this beautiful part of Old Havana, we enjoyed walking to the huge warehouse (it is about half a mile from the hotel) on the edge of the water where artists - hundreds of them - display their art.

Silent horror

We were in this hotel from 23rd.12.2016 till 26th.12.2016In this beginning we were settled in the room on the last floor, number 310.the staff that works in the reception was really friendly. Thats the only advantage of this hotel.Lets go back to the hotel. The elevator was broken, but its good that there was another office one, otherwise we would had to carry our suitcases in our hands.The room 310. Te safe was broken. Bathrooms size is the same as the whole room, its quite strange why so done like that.Do not even look outside the window, the view is bad on slum. So, when we saw everything that we asked them if they could move us in another room, but they canceled to us, and said that there is no other available room, and they promised to have a look tomorrow.Next day we really were given the other room. Number 109, on the 3rd floor . So the location of the floors like that: 1st floor its bar and reception, 2nd restaurant and higher are rooms.Firstly room 109 surprised us.It consists of 2 floors. 1st floor thats sofa and TV, and on the 2nd floor bedroom and shower with toilet.View on the water.The floor in the toilet flowed, but the drops were flying straight into the sink so no problems. Yea the shower was really strange. I am not really tall, only 1 meter 77 sm.So to stand under the shower, i had to take a seat. Really strange.All in all the shower was at chest level. There was also another quite strange thing: there wasnt a piece of the wall above the window.That didnt disturb us while sleeping, but the insulation did, it wasnt even in the room. You have to walk around the city, better on foot.So you will be tired in the end of the day and go sleep faster. In another way insomnia will got you.The view from windows went on the embankment and the cars were driving under the windows all night.By the way the windows are not glazing, so the insulation is absent.The breakfasts in this hotel are awful. The juice was sour twice, there was no butter at all. Servants were with such a bad face, so we didnt even asked them about something.They wont smile to you.On the catholic christmas we have bought celebration dinner about 35 cucs per person(its about 35 dollars). This dinner i will remember as the worst dinner in my life, because in brochure was said "life music", but there was no life music, they said that this guy didnt even appear , mojito was like from a soap and the food was bad.That was the worst hotel on Cuba i have ever been in. Huge disappointment .

Nice rooms and central location. Be aware that at breakfast most things on the menu will not be available! Rooftop bar has good views, but would not recommend the food.staff generally helpful but safe didn't work in our room.
