- 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.
Hotel was centrally located to the University of Havana, La Rampa and the Malecon and other hotels such as the Capri and Hotel Nacional. I liked it. The rooms are adequate because who really spends that much time in their room while in Cuba other than to take a nap or sleep at night. My only complaint was that the water was a problem and shut off a few times but came back on after a few minutes. Breakfasts were good with a full buffet and an air-conditioned coffee shop and a great little patio in front of the hotel.
Stayed at Hotel Colina for three days. There was hot water, a clean modern bathroom and most importantly air conditioning. It is centrally located four blocks south of the famous Malecón. But, not at the heart of it.Hotel Colina is two thirds less than your other 4 or 5 star places. And by comparison well worth it. As we all know Cuba is a third world country and having a solid roof over your head with the common human necessities as hot water, a/c, security, and a clean bed it's considered rich. Finally, you're walking into the 1950's with only wifi down the block at Havana libre hotel. Wifi is $5 (cucs) for an hour. Vic is the currency. You'll get a card with user name and password only in the lobby is accesible.
Avoid this hotel if possible and go for a casa particular. There was no hot water at all for 10 days straight, the rooms are claustrophobic and noisy. The service was ok and the breakfast edible. Funny thing but at breakfast they do not serve water, you have to spend 1 CUC to get a small bottle from a fridge that's under lock and key :)I stayed there because it's close to a lot of good places but next time I will definitely be somewhere else. It's a pity that this hotel gets bundled with good flight options so travelers are kind of forced to chose it. you've been warned.
Let me start out by saying, $149 for 6 nights! Great hotel for the price, ...great location across the street from the University., Breakfast buffet was included too.The patio is EXCELLENT for people watching and enjoying a nice cigar. The place was clean, bed was fairly comfortable, and all the staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this place if you want to tour Havana on a budget. No safe in the room, but a safety deposit box is available. the patio restaurant is open 24/7 with beer only $1CUC, and nothing on the menu was over $5.
After a catastrophic night in room 610, noisy, no water, uncomfortable, I moved down a floor to 517. View down to the sea, no noise, water mainly cold but hot water was available for a few days, the air conditioning was relatively quiet and the bed comfortable. Cable TV. Buffet breakfast was fine. Coffee awful. I went down to the all night cafeteria in the hotel to get a good espresso each morning. I went on business, and frankly for the room rate that we paid, I could not complain. The staff were really helpful and looked after us. I did not mind the inconveniences. In fact I quite liked the bustle around the place, the terrace that was always busy, the musicians who showed up at night. It is also well situated, next to the university, five minutes from the Malecon and El Nacional and Havana Libre. Lots going on around.
