I had the junior suite room 402. Fabulous! The room is all new and modern, the view is the dogs pyjamas, the jacuzzi works just fine, and the service rather friendly & efficient. The breakfast and snacks are pretty OK but nothing to write home about.

Details of Standard Room
The 12 modern centrally air-conditioned standard rooms are all with large full height sliding windows to balconies with 180 degree unobstructed sea views. All the balconies have special shutters for shade, privacy and storm protection.
9 of the rooms have twin beds, and the 3 double beds.
On the top floor these penthouses have roof terraces with commanding views of the ocean, malecon and much of Havana. If location and comfort are important to you then these must be the best rooms in Havana right now.
Along with Habana Vieja, Centro Habana is the most populated and overcrowded part of the city. It is a tumbledown residential / commercial area, the city's main shopping street, Calle San Rafael, traverses it from the Parque Central westwards. The large Partagas tobacco factory, directly behind the Capitolio, is the biggest export factory in the country, with 200 rollers turning out 5 million cigars a year.
Walking around this area you understand why Havana is sometimes referred to as a City of Columns; almost every buildings displays either one or a mixture of the Corinthian, Doric or Ionic types of this structure.
