OverviewLocated on the Paseo del Prado, close to the historic city center of Havana.
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.
After reading many hotel reviews I decided to just book the cheapest thing possible in Havana and live with it for 3 nights as so many reviews were all over the board. I booked the Caribbean through umbrella travel(A Canadian travel company)for 3 nights for $129.55 US which included breakfast or $43/night. I was told it was cheaper elsewhere. The bad: it had a noisy AC, was stuffy without it on, smelled dank, had no window, no toilet seat, all of the clocks didn't work or where on Cuban time(the wrong time as time is not relative in Cuba), you had to let the shower run for 5-10 minutes for hot water and it was usually fairly low water pressure, if you are looking for a prostitute(I wasn't) - they won't go back to the hotels, and the front door locks before 3am so you need to knock to have someone wake-up and open it. The Good: It was very clean, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful although not the best negotiators(a cab to the airport was $25 and I got an old collectivo), I always had hot water, the room was cleaned daily, it included a meager breakfast, it was safe, nothing was stolen from my room, and they readily exchange currency at .87CUC to $1 USD. They also have a Cubatur travel person in the lobby to arrange travel. I have stayed in some horrible hotels, and this was not one of those. This is a clean budget hotel in a developing country. That means it's not as nice as a holiday inn express in the US, but it served its purpose and has a great location.
Great location but rooms do not have windows!!!! There is only 4 rooms in whole hotel with windows. In our room was so much humidity, I was completly wet after 10 minutes in it. Our luck was that we were only one night in this hotel, we could not stand second one.. Anyway do yourself a favor and do not go in this hotel!!! Frankly, WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE..
Great location and people! For the price you get everything you need; comfortable beds, clean room, hot water and nothing went missing from my room! TV needed a quick repair and I unclogged the drain, but beyond that it was great! I would recommend this for a cheap room in which you need to sleep and store your gear during the day.
