Lonely Planet review
This modern Gaviota giant opened in December 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. To help you, 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 shiny and new, with 24-hour internet, car rental and an on-site minimarket. Guests can use the pool at 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.
