Lonely Planet review
This modern Gaviota giant opened in 2005 with the promise of something a little different. Of the rooms here, 101 are apartments with living rooms and fully equipped kitchens – a great opportunity to hit the Havana markets and find out how Cubans cook. In the kitchen there are microwaves, refrigerators, toasters and coffee machines – even your own cutlery.
If you're not up to cooking, the restaurant does a CUC$8 breakfast and a CUC$15 dinner buffet. Elsewhere the facilities are comprehensive, if a little utilitarian. Guests share the gym, pool and tennis courts with the Hotel Occidental Miramar next door.
Our independent authors have visited Aparthotel Montehabana and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Playa & Marianao.
