Armadores de Santander
- What's Included
The Santander is a good quality hotel in a location 4 minutes walk from Havana old town, it is located opposite the Casa Blanca ferry terminal which is a must to take at 2cuc,s each way to the Jesus monument.The reception staff were so friendly and helpful and the room was a good size and well appointed in a quirky way.Breakfast was unusually good for Cuba and the waiting staff were also helpful, there is also a bar which was well stocked and used by locals and visitors.It didnt worry us but the front rooms were on the main road and this may put off some people, great to see the old cars at all times of the day.
Great hotel, staff is super friendly. Good location - walking distance to city center.Rooms are very big. Wifi had a pretty strong signal from our room, lobby usually has wi-fi cards you can purchase. They go pretty fast so purchase a few if you can. Rooftop restaurant was very good. Nice views, friendly staff. Good to have a drink and sit upstairs or even have a meal. Hop on-Hop off bus tours are awesome. Stops very close to the hotel. There is a a market 5 minutes walk from the hotel which has tons of vendors selling items. We purchased many canvas paintings and souvenirs there.
The historic hotel (4 Star Cuban Hotel category) occupying three buildings from three different time eras & styles is centrally located in the old part of Havana, overlooking the Port of Havana.Staff is super friendly and helpful, especially reception staff.Rooms have aircon and safes. Reception downstairs also offer more safe space.Beds are clean and practical furniture provided.As a non local tourist in Cuba I would refrain from drinking the bathroom water but instead would recommend to use bottled water only, available either in the hotel or any super mercado.Roof terrace of the hotel is a must see with wonderful views all around the city - lovely!Cute bar & restaurant -Overall all a nice, decent stay
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.
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.
