Our OpinionCondo style resort with the convenience of kitchen facilities but it's far from the tourist areas. Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.
I recently spent 3 weeks at The Comodoro Hotel, staying in a bungalow. It was an excellent 3 weeks. The Comodoro under the watchful eye of Director Jose Louis is undergoing a considerable amount of work and upgrading. The hot water issues are resolved. Painting, air conditioning, landscaping work, road paving are some of the improvements. A large new canopy was installed over the outdoor entertainment area overlooking the water, and very good regular night time entertainment is now taking place. Everything in my bungalow was in good working order, kept clean, and new LED televisions are now in the rooms. The Comodoro is a large ocean front property in Miramar, a very nice district of Havana. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful, from the front desk, to Kathy and Andres in the Cigar Lounge, and all the staff at the 24 hour Pool Bar are very good. The hotel is in the process of opening a large section of new bungalows, with an upscale new bar open, and a new swimming pool. I have dined in all the hotel's restaurants, and have enjoyed all of them. The breakfast buffet has a good selection of breads, fresh fruit, cold cuts and cheese, hot items, and an omelette station. Something for everyone. I look forward to returning to the Comodoro Hotel. Cheers; Mike from Canada
We spent 4 nights in early November here. In spite of warnings we ended up in rooms without hot water for the first night. Beware of rooms in the 700 block. We got moved as soon as we raised a concern and the rest was ok for the price. It is a long way from downtown though. The staff were all excellent, food was OK.
My wife and I spent 11 days staying at El Comodoro. As seven days of our visit were for a work meeting we had no choice in where we stayed as it was booked by the Cuban organisers. I had checked the TA reviews of the hotel beforehand and was very apprehensive! Some described it as the 'worst place they had ever stayed' and similar! Well please be informed that this is by no means a bad hotel and we enjoyed our stay. If you want to stay in the comforts of the 'global standard of somewhat sterile luxury' do not stay here, go to the nearby Melia or to the Hilton or similar. But if you are happy to pay around $150/day for a fully air conditioned two room apartment including a buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, and swimming pools, bars and free live Cuban music most nights, then El Comodoro is for you! It also has an ocean pool (not a "salt water pool" as one critic called it) which is great for an invigorating swim! Tours, taxis and hire cars can all be booked in the hotel. Some warnings! Wifi is expensive and somewhat unreliable so do not expect to be online all day! Overall we had a very good stay.
I really wasn't expecting very much from this hotel so on that note I got exactly what I expected. The rooms were clean and well kept, the lobby bar was open 24 hours, they had phones for international calls but most importantly for me, my friend Alex was rolling cigars in the cigar shop in the hotel lobby. Being able to come downstairs from my room and pick out the cigar I was going to smoke with my morning coffee was a huge plus for me (and for my opinion of the hotel). Otherwise, the service at the front desk is horrible at times, it's like they don't care and I'm sure they don't. The pool can get crowded with locals paying to use it for the day. The air-conditioning in the lobby never works and it can get very uncomfortable...However, they were installing a new one this past july. The Cigar Shop was to move to a separate building in the next few weeks. I only had the breakfast in the main dining room and it was just passable. Rather than paying for a taxi stationed at the front of the hotel, walk out to the street (3rd Ave) and flag down a huge classic car to take you to Old Havana for a fraction of the cost ($1cuc)...they call them Almendrones in Cuba. Make sure to ask if they're going to the Capitolio, a good place to start your walking tour.
I was traveling with a large group of people, we all had our reservations made and printed out months before our arrival and despite that some people did not appear in the reservation list, so they where left without any place to stay at and what's worst of all is that the hotel staff did not care at all and never took responsibility of anything. The room that I was staying in had no warm water, and was above the kitchen so the smell in the balcony was awful. The hotel receptionists where never there and they did not care much about your needs, so they make their clients feel bad for asking for simple, basic things, like toilet paper. It rained in our stay and there are various leaks which is very dangerous considering they are manly near the stairs. The restaurant staff is really nice though, but the food is not really good. The bedrooms are in a good shape, despite some of them having no working a/c and/or warm water. Nothing is included, you can't even use the safe in your room without having to pay a fee, and wifi is very limited of course, but the problem is that this specific hotel charges double for wifi that what I found in other Internet stores and hotels.
