Positive Reviews

Super clean guesthouse

Guests say that while the outside of the building may not look the most attractive, inside it is lovely. They find that everything is really clean, the bathrooms being spotless, the beds having crisp white sheets and the towels being fresh.

Handy location

Guests say that the location of the guesthouse is good, just about everything they want being within walking distance.  However, if you do not want to walk, a hop on hop off bus service around Havana runs regularly along the road in front of the guest house.

Helpful staff

The guesthouse has an English speaking member of staff who is very friendly, polite and happy to help you with anything. Guests were able to have reservations made and tickets booked, which they thought was really useful as it saved them lots of time and confusion.

Negative Reviews

Next to a busy main road

The guesthouse is right next to the Malecon, a main road and promenade which runs along the coastline in Havana. While this means that the guesthouse has excellent sea views, some guests do find the road itself to be quite noisy.

Trouble with the keys and locks

Some guests said that the keys and locks did not work very well, and neither did the buzzer for the guesthouse, so they would sometimes have to shout to get attention for someone from the guesthouse to come down.

Good food but at a price

While guests enjoy the meals which are served for them at the guesthouse, some guests think that the prices which are charged for both food and drink are too high when compared to what they could pay at other cafes and restaurants.
