Good for a long stay

I stayed here for three weeks with others from my school during a study abroad trip. The beds weren't the most comfortable, and the air conditioner was spotty but we were able to open the windows for a breeze--and really, we weren't there to stay in the rooms anyways, so it didn't matter that much! The pool was very nice (I miss it!), and the food and drink prices at the bar were not unreasonable ($4-5 for a daiquiri, $7-10 for a meal). We were offered a free breakfast at the hotel which was different than what I'm used to being from the US, but it was still good (lots of fruit) and cuban coffee (either the espresso or cafe con leche) was DELICIOUS. Man I miss this country!! It was easy to get a taxi into Habana vieja from here (bonus if you speak spanish, we could usually talk the drivers down in price to $5-10 for a group of 4 or so), and it was within walking distance of a grocery store and being in Miramar, was also near the embassies! So if you're a traveler on a budget, or you're going to be in the city for awhile, or you're with a group and want to share a room, I would recommend this place! The rooms also came with a safe, which was a bonus too.

Basic but comfortable

Rooms are apartment style and probably too large for the amount of time you want to spend it. Hotel is in need of refurbishment but is clean and comfortable.All the staff were friendly and helpful and service was really good.Only ate breakfast at the hotel and there was plenty of choice. Food at the sister hotel was good as was the swimming pool and the entertainment

3 star hotel

Stayed as a single female for 4 days.The good: plentiful breakfast. Memories Miramar hotel owned by same people and on same property. You can use their pool and facilities and restuarants. Very safe spot. Nice pool which is big. Hotel room was clean and they provided a hairdryer, shampoo, body wash and shower cap. You may not get these at some other hotels. Memories Miramar has a tour desk that you can arrange tours of old Havana for cheaper than taxi fare there and back. Also tours across Cuba to different places. Between both hotels there are gift shops, convience store, massage, hair shop, massage and fitness and tennis courts.You can buy cigars and alcohol at Miramar. Neighbour hour is in a more posh neighbourhood. Taxis outfront and local busses close by. Not so good: king mattress on 2 uneven boxsprings. Ok for just me but 2 people might be uncomfortable. Location far from everythings. Cost me 20 cuc one way into old Havana. Lots of stairs into hotel and to get to pool and other hotel. Not good if you have mobility issues. I paid too much to stay here.

Basic but comfortable.

Like another reviewer visited this hotel as part of an overnight package to Havana. Set in the diplomatic quarter some distance from the main city. The Hotel is very 70's in terms of a style statement with a very large lobby area. The room my wife and I had, was twin bedded, with a large lounge and a kitchen area, that looked to be disconnected. The bathroom was clean, and the shower good. The decoration, was very Mediterranean and colourful with some nice decorative features in terms of accessories like vases and lamps.The electrics were interesting, the wall lights in our room when turned off had one flashing bulb. I removed the bulb from the apparently faulty fixture and then the other lamp flashed so removed both bulbs, whilst my wife tried to work out what to do if I got an electric shock. We were here to visit Club Tropicana so did not dine at night but breakfasted in the morning. Like my hotel in Varadero the coffee was not brilliant but there was a good selection both hot and cold. The staff were a little remote, but then we had been bussed in for a one night stay. They did let me change some money at a better rate than my hotel. So the general standard was much better than I had expected. For a short stay I thought it was acceptable and if you are planning an overnight trip, albeit a little out of the centre, I found it to be a comfortable stay.

To be avoided

We stayed at this hotel for one night while on a 2 day tour of Havana with our tour group. The hotel was undergoing refurbishment and many of the rooms were in a disgusting state with dust on all the furniture, paint on the floors and beds and the kitchenette was covered in grime. The only good room was the bathroom which was reasonably tidy and the shower was usable. Some of our group asked to move as their rooms were damp and the bedding threadbare. Our balcony was also covered in paint and the cleaner had not brushed the area for weeks as there were cigarettes discarded on the floor. We avoided the breakfast as it did not look appetizing. The toilets in the lobby were being used by the workmen so was best avoided. All in all a very disappointing experience but luckily we were only there for one day.
