    We had a fabulous stay at El Candil and delicious breakfasts each day. The staff were all lovely - Janetxy and Rosabella were incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice - making sure our visit to Havana was relaxing and memorable. All our thanks to them and the rest of the great team!

    First of all, special thanks to all staff, they were all friendly, caring and helpful, especially, Yanetxy. She was very helpful, gave a lot of good suggestion, helped us to plan the rest of our journey, she even booked our next stay in Trinidad, which was lovely as well. When we arrived, we were welcomed with nice cocktails and briefed about the hotel and facilities at the roof bar. Our room was airy and clean, we had everything we needed. We had nice breakfasts in the morning, usually, the hotel arranged our taxis which was convenient. Location of the hotel is 10 to 15 minutes drive from Havana city center, which usually cost around 10 to 15 cuc, when it's raining and during night taxis tend to charge more. Overall, we were very happy to stay in this hotel and would highly recommend. Thanks

    Spectacular boutique hotel, absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean. Amazing roof top area with bar and beautiful views was a lovely area to chill out in. The massages there are absolutely wonderful and so reasonably priced - definitely worth experiencing! Really well located with lots of sights nearby. We were so well taken care of - the concierge service is absolutely outstanding. Yanetxy is so knowledgeable, professional, warm, friendly and dedicated. Was such a lovely relaxing treat to finish off our holiday!

    Very comfortable, elegant surroundings and friendly and extremely helpful staff. The roof bar was a little disappointing as it did not seem to be very well stocked. Otherwise, it was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Havana.

    This is a converted townhouse, with just 5 rooms. It has a breakfast/function room on the ground floor, and a nice rooftop terrace/bar with a hot tub. The room (our one at least) was spotless, nicely appointed, with a decent shower/bath. The staff were lovely and accommodated my request for a birthday surprise for my wife during our stay. While they don't usually open as a restaurant in the evening (instead, relying on some others a couple of blocks away), they turned my advance request for an evening meal on into a meal for all the guests in the house, complete with a musical trio, and a birthday cake. All in all a really nice place - we'd certainly recommend them and stay there again. So, anything negative? Well, the rooftop bar is potentially really nice, but all the tables/chairs were covered over whenever we went up there. If we hung around long enough the barman appeared and served us, but (given this was the place in the house with the best WiFi - albeit with all the drawbacks of Cuban internet connections), it felt a bit like a missed opportunity to me.

    What a wonderful hotel. Beautiful building and a calm place after the busy old town. Loved it. Lovely rooftop bar with chilled music. Staff were amazing and breakfast lovely.

    The hotel offers great services and the price is reasonable. Huge compliment to the staff who works in the hotel. They are extremely helpful. Also, the lady at the reception provided many suggestions to us in terms of dining, sight-seeing, etc. This is a highly recommended accommodation if you are visiting Havana. PS: hope she has now recovered from the back pain!
