A total disaster
I cannot give a review of the copacabana hotel in havana, because when i arrived with a print-out of my prepaid reservation through hotelsclick.com, the hotel had absolutely no record of my reservation or payment. the place was completely booked and could not accommodate me. on the plus side, the manager (perhaps used to these kinds of mess-ups) was helpful, and got me a room at a hotel about an hour and a half bus ride from the center of the city (the copacabana is also out of town, but only about half as far out). the other hotel marina hemingway is an all-inclusive resort (all meals and drinks included; i don't know the price, because they accepted the voucher for the copacabana). the bus service into the city is also included with the room and meals and runs every hour on the hour. the downside, in addition to the length of time spent on the bus each day, was that the last bus left the city center at 5:00 pm, cutting out the possibility of having dinner and/or a show in town.
