I had multiple problems with the front desk. first they did not have my reservation in their system. then they tried to book only two nights, when i paid for four nights. then they expected us (three rooms) to leave on the second night. it was all resolved after showing them my printed receipt, which they kept. fortunately i had a second copy just in case.
the overall experience was good. the lobby bar staff need an explanation on the difference from a white wine glass and a red wine glass.
the food was much, much better than i expected and i was surprised. a delight.
taxi service was nearly instantaneous, with many cars nearby.
the rooms are clean and spacious. the hot water is really warm water, but it is noted on the shower and sink.
i did not use the pool, but the area is clean.
i think the hotel should take advantage of its history and perhaps offer a single double-sided page, with the story to guests as they check in.

Hotel with a vivid history

A hotel with a lot of character state run and therefore no concept of customer service. the swimming pool is unique but no towel service. the restaurants are interesting and the menu is reasonably priced but the food is average and service is slow. the bar area with its view is good and the service was good with music most of the time.
the breakfasts were just ok but little change in food over the 10 days there
one wing of the hotel is closed for renovations but seems to be out of commission for a long time
the bathroom is ok but there was never any shampoo
the location is good and our room had a great view of the malecon
before arriving in the hotel i tried to contact it on many occasions but could not. it has no email address and it is impossible to get through by telephone.

Low: 1.3/5 More Details


I paid almost £100 for this room because the only other one i could find that night (after a three hour on line search) in a hotel was £250. i wish i had spent the £250. the hotel atrium was leaking water when we arrived. the first room stank of smoke. the second room smelt (and was) damp. the window of the room had installation foam leaking from it but sill let in air enough to move the curtains. the sheets were clean but stained. the pillows were terrible. there were small ants on the surfaces of the furniture. only one lift of three was working. the swimming pool was empty. the receptionists looked and acted as if they had been forced to chew wasps. the only good thing was that we could walk to the meila next door.
