Historic hotel which itself is an attraction

The hotel has a nice breakfast with a wide choice of food. There’s even live music in the breakfast hall.The rooms are OK, but the toilets could have worked better. We had bad weather during our stay, and the rooms get cold in this case. We did expect the higher standard for this price, but when the toilet was fixed, exerting was OK.The rooms has a good internet connection. Something a bit rare in Cuba I think.Expect some noise from the live music in the afternoon if you have a room with sea view.The service was good, and we always got help when we needed it.The veranda has a great view, live music, and attentive staff. A great place for rum and cigar after dinner.The hotel is a little bit away from the busiest city center, but a 30-minute walk or a short taxi ride takes you to there.The hotel has two pools, a great cabaret and recurring concert with members of Buena Vista Club. There’s also a good LCDH cigar shop with walk-in humidor and smoking room.Please don’t take a horse ride. This tourist attraction should not be encouraged. Take an old American taxi instead.

Iconic hotel - spoiled my staff accusing me of being dishonest

Fabulous hotel in a great location. It is unfortunate about the staff!!My story. I went and changed money £180. I counted it out of my wallet and handed it over. I then watched the lady concerned also count the money. I was then handed the relevant local currency. End of transaction I thought. Wrong!!SIX hours later. I went to my room and my key didn't work. Usual problem I thought. Went to reception to get it reprogrammed.Once there I was told there had been a problem with the earlier transaction. She then pulled out a number of English noted 8 X £20 and claimed this was what I had given her six hours before. I know there were also 2 X £10. These weren't there. This clearly, as far as she was concerned, was proof I had short changed her. When I pointed out that there were two £10 notes she got annoyed and stated "This is your Christmas present from the hotel".I was very upset by this attitude especially SIX hours after the event when I had watched her count the money. I have no idea where the money had been in the intervening time and that it was wrapped in a piece of paper didn't prove a thing.I do not like or expect to be accused of being dishonest - especially in what is supposed to be a 5* hotel.

Museum but not for staying

If you like historical place where nothing is changed since 1930, you are welcome.Expensive 3 star hotel with great sightseeing and mosquitos in your room....Poor breakfast and bar with high prices with make your stay unforgettable. Especially when the bottle of water in your minibar cost 4 CUC (almost 4 euros).Probably you should be very excited that Frank Sinatra stayed here in 1946 with mafia, but why this place has 5 stars I do not understand, Only prices confirm it. But location and view is gorgeus

Stop by for a great view/breeze and a drink

Set facing the malecon (waterfront), just outside historic Havana, this beacon of the mob era opulence gives some idea to what Havana was like before the disastrous communist takeover. The building itself is not too showy, but is well maintained. You can see the official government reception room, and another room plastered from floor to ceiling with photos of past and current era celebrities who visited here. The real jewel here is the large outdoor space with tables to enjoy drinks. The breeze from the sea is incredibly refreshing here and the views are perfect. You should definitely stop by during your visit to Havana.

Amazing time

This was a really nice hotel. We enjoyed every minutes of our stay there. The staff was really nice and helpful. They guided us to nice restaurant and clubs for the evening. It was really rewarding to be able to discover so much of Havana.
