Myself and my partner loved staying here at the beginning of our travels round Cuba. The hotel made sure that there were staff there to welcome us, even though we didn’t arrive until 01:00am. The room was beautiful and clean, as was the bathroom. There was a lovely rooftop bar and a little pool. And breakfast every morning was fantastic. This was only made even better by the amazingly attentive staff. Yanexty went above and beyond to make sure that our trip in Havana was perfect. She took the time to sit down with us and explain the best places to go, helped us organise transport and made sure she was available if we ever needed anything at all. She was honestly amazing. We would recommend this place to every one we know, and if we’re ever back in Cuba we will definitely be staying here again!
