8/10 Very good

The property is in the main square, so is in a perfect location. Walkable to all places of interest and restaurants/bars. The room was not bad. Bathrooms needs slight attention. The rooms could do with a bit more lighting. If you have a room facing the square, you will have a nice view, but you will encounter traffic noise and fumes, as the rooms have large shutters and no windows. Breakfast is nice, and the staff are very friendly and pleasant.

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel is beautiful! Located on a quiet, shady square, across the street from the Apothecary Museum (in complete seriousness don't miss it), close to a couple of good restaurants and has street parking and working wifi in the lobby. The period furnishings, high ceilings and original tiles make this hotel feel like you're stepping back in time. The receptionists were helpful and kind. We were able to get late check-out which made it the perfect place to visit the beaches. A great place to come back to after a day of snorkeling at Playa Coral and enjoying the beaches at Varadero.

8/10 Very good

Old property in the main square. I did an official site seeing tour of the city and found this hotel was one of the places visited. Excellent public area and restaurant. Breakfast and dinner were both very good and the staff were very helpful. The room was acceptable but rather small and had no direct light ie no window.
