Armadores de Santander
- What's Included
Stay for 3 days, so looking forward to my stay in Havana.Apart from the front of the hotel and the veranda on the upper floor, there is nothing to recommend this hotel to anyone. The room I stay in have no air con, the shower was block, the doors for windows were closed. Change for another room since the staff did nothing with the room after being told about it. The 2nd room was smaller, air con did work, the view was terrible from the window, had to leave the window open due to smell of a diesel generator running all night long, which you can hear the hum of the diesel generator in the room. The staff were totally indifferent to us since we arrive, were no help at all when we made our complaint about the room we stay in. The breakfast service was a joke, on the second morning we were told to have our breakfast in the bar on a table no bigger than a laptop. If it was possible to a rating of negative stars, I would give it -5 stars.It ruin the wonderful experience of Havana for me, only the people not associated with the hotel save the day for me.Don't stay in the hotel for any reason at all. It is 2 stars hotel masquerading as a 4 stars, I being generous call it a 2 stars hotel.I not wish from the management about my review.
Havana and it's people are beautiful. The architecture and streets of Old Town are fantastic. The vintage American and Russian cars are pretty awesome. We overall had a great experience. That being said, the heat and humidity was intense and there was little to no way of escaping it. I live in South Louisiana and I'm familiar with these conditions. Most of the sights, restaurants and bars are open air with little to no AC. That's what I expected on a caribbean island. But not in my hotel room. My room did have AC but could not keep up with 90 degree weather and high humidity. If you don't mind these conditions, I highly recommend visiting Cuba and this hotel.
Staff welcoming, service was good. Rooms traditional, spacious and clean. Rooftop restaurant and bar overlooking the harbour with amazing views. The best food we had in Cuba, breakfast service was good. Talking with other english speaking visitors this hotel was heads above others in Havana. Great location to access shopping/resturants and walking distance of old Havana.
Basically, don't stay here unless you're desperate. Most things don't work, service is really quite poor, and Management doesn't care. Breakfast is terrible. We stayed in private casas for the rest of our stay in Cuba, and casas are much better value for money. However, the location is good, enabling you to explore the old town within 10 - 15 minutes' walk.
This is a beautifully restored hotel and is in a great location on the edge of Havana Vieja.Unfortunately there are some rooms (and I had one) which don't have windows and as a result they seem to suffer from damp. All the soft furniture in my room was damp to the touch and so were the sheets on the bed. It's also very odd being in a room with no natural light and the lighting in the room is a bit too dim as well.We also had an issue with breakfast. We were told that the issue on our first morning was down to the fact that there was no gas - we're not sure how the food had been prepared, but presumably it had been brought in as it was tepid. However the lack of gas didn't explain the glacial service, why people were ignored when there were empty seats to sit them at, or why our juice never arrived. Next day we went out for breakfast.When we told our guide and said, "It's very beautiful" she replied "You don't eat the beauty". I think I'm with her, I'm not sure I'd visit it again.
