- What's Included
Our OpinionPlease 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.
OverviewLocated on the Paseo del Prado, close to the historic city center of Havana.
My husband and I booked this hotel through Orbitz and we were not happy. This hotel was a hole in the wall, our room smelled as if there was a gas leak. The front desk staff was very rude and not helpful. For charging $75 a night, I expect it, at the least, not to smell like gas.
You get what you pay for. Location is great but quality is you get what you paid for. The included breakfast was thumbs down. The fruit juice and fruit cup tasted as though it was left in the sun forever. With that being said if you don't plan on being in the room and you require bare minimum with great location then this is the place.
If you are used to luxury hotel standards this hotel is not for you. On the other hand if you are a bargain hunter who can handle minor problems, you have found your base of operation in Havana. The location is a few blocks from The Malecon, Old Havana, and the Plaza. The rooms are clean. The flat screen TV has cable access, the beds are comfortable, showers clean, courteous staff, nice breakfast, and lobby bar. They have no WiFi but you can find it at the Seville Hotel across the street.
I spent two night there before leaving Havana. It was the most budget option in downtown I could get from Sunwing. I think it is pretty solid as a short stay hotels in Havana downtown. Some people indicated that casa particular are cheaper. That is true, but this is a hotel, with staff and security. Which work very well. There is bar, so you can buy water any time. Elevator is not bad, as there are small number of rooms, so i never waited. Other clients I saw were rather hipsterish (no multi-generational families). Staff helpful. The best part, you cannot beat the location. One cannot get a professional (not BB) place there for less money. It is clean and safe. The biggest drawback is - as many mentioned - there are no windows in most rooms. It is pretty dark and gloomy. People in tropics are not really keen on having sunlit rooms, true. But they might, at least, invest in better lighting. And wi-fi. All in all, I would stay there again, if I need a cheap foothold in Havana's downtown..
Location, location, location! This Hotel is simple but clean, quite and in the middle of everything. There is a local art market on the weekend just outside the door and plenty to see and do just a block or two away from the capital.
