Saint Johns Vedado
- 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 in the very heart of downtown, Hotel Saint John's is in the Vedado area, a few meters away from La Rampa, Havana's entertainment hub.
Arrived late on Oct 25 and stayed 4 nights at Hotel Saint John.Good: 1 - It was only a block from the infamous Malecon and the National Hotel. If you are a walker is was not too far to Old Habana, the market, etc.2 - We were given a "matrimonial" suite on the 12th floor with a view of the ocean. It was a fantastic view. Bad:1 - The room was very dated, but it was clean. The air conditioners were very loud, but did the trick when we weren't in the room. Bathroom window would not close. It rained very hard for a good part of the day and we had a flood in the bathroom.2 - The stench of stale smoke when you walk in the lobby was disgusting.3 - front desk clerks were not consistent. One lady would not charge for a local call, another would charge 1CUC or 2CUC.4 - good location but very loud. Can't have windows open for the noise of traffic and disco.5 - Wifi was non- existent.6 - Breakfast: short walk to the neighbouring hotel Vedado. Awesome coffee maker the first morning, but then it broke and never got fixed for the next 3 mornings. Ended up having to pay for a cappuccino at the bar. Food was disgusting and cold.7 - concierge's were sketchy. obviously got a kick back if they sent you to a certain restaurant. We were sent to one about 2 blocks up and 2 blocks over at almost midnight our first night, and we got ripped. WORST mojito I've ever had. Food was nothing to write home about and it cost us $30CUC each.
I just left cuba , I had a terrible expierenced at this hotel. There was no hot water , all the safes do not work , Windows don't lock, and there is a night club on the top floor which left me a little concerned that anyone could go to your floor. Elevator was pretty sketchy and the breakfast was actually at the vedado hotel which is a block away.
Saint John hotel is 15 min walking to the center. Very good breakfast (at other hotel close by) and tourism receptionist very helpful (at other hotel close by). These are the only good points of this hotel. Then...1. Noisy night due the water dripping in our room air conditioner device (from the other air conditioner device from the upper rooms). It wasn't due the rain. It was like somebody was beating steel in your room2. No rope substitution. Even the ones in the ground3. One centipede in the room and other cockroach near the elevator4. Broken window in the toilet5. In the first day we ask to the concierge where we can have dinner. He pick us to other guy and this last one send us to a restaurant where the price was minimum 15€/person/dish and horrible food. Next day we found a closer restaurant with much better food and with normal price (5€).6. Other Concierge try to sell us Cuban cigars. Cuban cigars can only be sold in specific places and need to authorised.7. During the night there is a disco in the rooftop of the hotel. In the room you don't hear any sound. But in the disco there are many young girls (apparently) with short dresses.
Clean place to stay at reasonable price. Good location in the middle of the city.I had a bad experience with the Security chief – young and corrupted man who took money from me by lying. I can provide more information To Whom It May Concern.
Old, extremely low shower pressure, dirty room. Breakfast, pool, and wifi are not actually in this hotel. You have to walk to a near by hotel Vedado to get all these amenities. Won't stay there again!
