Occidental Montehabana Reviews – Cuba Hotels – Occidental Montehabana

A friend and I stayed here Oct. 5 for 1 night. We payed $38 and the value was tremendous. Our check-in was very smooth. The hotel is connected to Occidental’s all-inclusive, we had use of the pool and could purchase a buffet dinner for 12 pesos and a buffet breakfast for 6 pesos. We used the pool for about 20 minutes and did not get meals, we just needed a place in Havana. There is a small grocery store on site where we bought cola and some snacks. There is also internet and phone for purchase and a Cadeca for exchanging currency. The internet was very slow, I was able to check my email but was unable to send any. There is a lobby bar where you can watch TV, drink and eat. There was a baseball game on between Canada and Cuba so that was interesting. The rooms were standard and had a large bathroom and a balcony. TV was decent and the room was nice and clean. My only complaint about the room is the lack of pillows. I hope management will consider adding more pillows to each room. This room was just as good as our room at an all-inclusive in Varadero. The hotel is in an upper class neighbourhood with countless embassies and several good restaurant choices. We took a coco taxi from Plaza De La Revolucion for 6 pesos. From Old Havana I estimate it would be 10 pesos. We walked the neighbourhood a bit, visited John Lennon Park which is in the area, and ate dinner at El Aljibe. I would stay here again for sure.

Check in was fine. The lady at the front desk spoke mediocre English but explained our meal options and the facilities. We did not really need the front desk for much as we were only there 1 night.

Average sized room, 2 3/4 beds, TV with 5 or 6 English towels, desk area, mini fridge, balcony, large bathroom, decent shower and sink.

Restaurants and Bars:
Buffet restaurant at the adjacent Occidental Miramar, 6 pesos for breakfast and 12 pesos for dinner, also a small grocery store on site. Good for chips, pop, beer etc. Also a bar in the hotel where food an be bought, TV with baseball playing.

You have access to the pool at the Occidental Miramar. Grounds seem decent.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Internet service, quite slow and pricey. Miramar neighbourhood is very nice with lots of embassies and good reastaurants to choose from.

Other Comments:
Paid only $38 Canadian for 1 night. 10 Peso coco taxi from Plaza De La Revolucion.
