After a very long day of travel, we were disappointed with this hotel. It was dark, dingy and not clean. Would not recommend. It is too far from the city for it to be economical for a sightseeing holiday. "Free Shuttle" was no longer in effect. Had to cab it not the city for $15-$20 (CDN) each way or take the hop-on hop-off which was about $12 anyway. Our room attendant was fine but only after we tipped handsomely, before that it was indifference.Liked the convenience of the "money exchange" office in the lobby.The pool was nice and the water clean and spotless. The pool deck had mould.The hotel is not located on a "beach". It is located on the waterfront. The buffet breakfast was ok though. We were glad we opted in for that. I am hard pressed to find too much to recommend about this hotel. I get the sense they don't really care if you choose to be there or not. A tourist has many choices.... I'd chose more wisely next time.
This hotel is about 30 minutes from the interesting parts of Havana, overlooking the Russian Embassy which is probably the ugliest building in Cuba! Reception and bar area nice but rooms are tired with bathrooms being covered in broken and poorly repaired tiling. My first room had an a/c control which had no dials and had obviously not worked for many moons, a repair man was duly sent and agreed with my diagnosis and I was then given another room. The restaurant was large with a fair selection of food, cuisine in Cuba is nothing to write home about and the 'hot holding' temperatures are well below UK/EU standards which means most food is just warm unless you opt for the chef making things like omelettes and pasta in front of you. [safest option] The Italian restaurant in the foyer serves delicious pizza's. I would not stay here again. The hop on/off bus stops at door which is great value and service.
We used the hotel for two nights on the small Cuba bustour. Otherwise the location is not close enough to the centre. Check-in was incredibly slow and inefficient. One of the three lifts would not go down to the lobby, but stop one floor up. The exchange rate at reception was lower than in other places. The room was quite big with three beds, but smelling of moth balls. However, shower and toilet worked though the water was only lukewarm. For Cuban conditions, breakfast and dinner were good, the grilled tuna being very tasty. Electrical sockets worked fine to recharge batteries for phone and camera. The outside pool was a highlight. Cocktails at 4,5 CUC are pricey. Considering everything, I cannot recommend the hotel.
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel as part of a duo package (Havana-Varadero) offered by Air Transat. The hotel was in a decent location, certainly not central Havana (we knew this at the time of booking) which was actually nice because I heard and can only imagine that it's noisey downtown and can be a challenge to sleep at night for that reason. The Panorama is located in Miramar, which is a neighbourhood in the western part of Havana with many great restaurants. There is an authentic Cuban supermarket plaza across the street where local Cubans hang out and do their shopping. It was cool for us to sit and have lunch there as we really wanted an authentic experience despite staying in a hotel.Now for the hotel itself..The lobby is nice. The hanging plants from the balconies are eye-catching. The restaurants *look* nice, and the pool area was nice. We ate at the Italian restaurant "Don Alfredo" the first night we were there, and it was horrendous. We expected sub-par hotel food because that's typically the way it is at 2.5-3 star hotels, but good lord.....The breakfast buffet was quite bad as well. Stale bread, undercooked bacon, coffee from an automatic machine. We dined at restaurants in the neighbourhood for dinner, all of which were wonderful, so I highly recommend just dining out for every meal or going to the supermarket if you're on a tighter budget. Our bathroom did not have a toilet seat, there was a leak coming from the sealing in the bathroom, the blanket on the bed had a strange smell, and the majority of the staff at the hotel were not friendly. The only staff member who was friendly and helpful was the maintenance guy who helped us multiple times with our tv which didn't want to work for us.My advice...don't expect much from your stay here but a visually-pleasing lobby. It's fine if it's just a place for you to crash for a night or two.
