Good, but don't expect 5 stars

By: Marcus Maya, United States Posted: 2015-01-28

 

It was great going back to my country after 50 years. The hotel definitely shows it\'s age and lack of upkeep. The huge front entrance tile mural is falling apart, the pool has not been open in years, the all brass interior of the elevators have not been polished in many years, hence they look awful. The hallway carpeting is worn out. The room furniture is very old and has many many coats of paint. The bench at the foot of the bed collapsed when I tried using it. The bidet had been removed. The new tile work in the bathroom was done poorly. All that said, the staff was great. That is because I was the only one tipping them. The breakfast buffet was good, not great, but good. Please be generous; a 1 CUC tip goes a long way. They can exchange that 1 CUC for +/-30 of their pesos which translates to a few meals they can buy. The cab drivers at the entrance are thieves; it\'s better to walk down a few more yards and grab a cab on the street. Negotiate no more than 6 CUC to go into old Havana.
