Our Opinion
A great boutiquestyle hotel that's right in the middle of Havana Vieja. It'scharming with lots of ambiance.
Ernest Hemingway's favourite hotel and the most sought after accommodation in the city. Amidst Old Havana narrow cobble stone streets, this little jewel has been lovingly restored.
Location: In the heart of Old Havana. 25 min from Airport.

Fun rooftop drinking and dining

We visited here a couple of times for drinks and dinner on the rooftop patio. The view was terrific, the mojitos were excellent, and our food was quite good. It's a very relaxing place to spend an hour or two in the evening. Service was, like almost every place in Havana, slow.

The WORST hotel ever!! FILTHY & DISGUSTING room, RUDE Staff :(

My husband and I missed our flight and had to spend an extra night in Havana. We decided not to spend too much on lodging as we already had to pay a hefty amount for our new plane tickets. So we gave this hotel a try and didn't expect much given the Cuban standard, but we thought with almost $200 room rate it should be somewhat decent. We were so wrong as it turned out to be the WORST HOTEL and travel experience EVER!! The room was extremely run down, tiny and full of dust. There was hair everywhere...on the floors, in the bathroom and even on the bed sheets. So it made us wonder if the room had been cleaned and sheets had been washed. The bathroom was even more FILTHY and DISGUSTING...mold in every corner, yellow stains on tiles, toilet and bathtub...just PURE HORRIBLE!! There was constant loud noise from upstairs all night long. It sounded like someone was moving furniture or dragging chairs on the floors non stop. So we could hardly get any sleep. But that wasn't the worst yet...My husband woke up at around midnight as he smelled something weird. After some inspection, he found that the suspicious smell was from his pillow which did smell like URINE!! Yes, URINE!!!! How DISGUSTING...just ABSOLUTELY NAUSEATING!! So he got up to go to the bathroom and was hoping to wash the awful smell off his face. BUT there was NO RUNNING WATER!! Fast forward to the next morning, there was still no running water. My husband took a trip down to the reception (yes, it was a trip up and down from 5th floor cuz the only one elevator wasn't working) and asked the staff politely what was going on and when it would get fixed. The staff basically just BARKED at him and gave him the ATTITUDE. They didn't even offer him any bottled water to wash our faces and brush out teeth. So we ended up waiting for the water until almost check out time. As expected, NO LUCK and we had to use drinking water from the mini bar for minimal cleaning. When we checked out, the check out person was also very RUDE. She requested us to pay for the drinking water which we denied and she just gave us an evil look!! In a nutshell, STEER CLEAR from this hotel...EXTREMELY ODIOUS...ABSOLUTELY AWFUL!!

Called him Senor Cranky

Didn't stay there but stopped in for cocktails and Wi-Fi. My friend speaks fluent Spanish and when I ordered a drink Senor Cranky looked at one of the other employees and said he was not going to use the blender today. Wow. My friend bought a Wi-Fi card and was never able to get on. Beautiful Lobby but I prefer to spend my money where I'm appreciated

Visit to Hemingway old room

The hotel is a beautiful building, it was like stepping back in time , the old style lift is worth going in .Hemingway's room is preserved just as it was when he used to stay there, it's really interesting to see.
