10/10 Exceptional

We spent 7 nights at Residencia Santa Clara and were very pleased with our accommodations, the room was great, AC worked wonderfully......and the entire staff was absolutely amazing and went out of their way to make everything about our stay better. Food was delicious and plentiful.......and breakfast hit the spot very morning. Yuliet, Amin, & Serquey took great care of everything we needed......when we left it felt like we were leaving family. Absolutely recommend and we will stay here again.

Our stay at Residencia Santa Clara was perfect. The room was great, the bar/restaurant was welcoming, and the staff in particular were amazing. All of the staff especially Yuliet, Amin, Sergei but also the kitchen and cleaning staff we didn't get to know by name really made us feel welcome and ensured our trip was extra special. I would recommend anyone to stay at Residencia Santa Clara when visiting Havana.

8/10 Very good

This place is very nice, and overall I'm satisfied. However, I believe that it is possible to find way better accommodation with the money. The room was nice and clean, AC worked like a charm. The staff is a bit uninvolved but helped us with everything. The exchange rate was a bit worse than in other places we visited lately. The city centre is really close. If you decide on this place, get one Mojito there - it is fantastic!

I highly recommend Residencia Santa Clara! It's a great location for exploring Old Havana. The rooms and hotel is clean, comfortable and beautifully themed. We encountered no issues with our room or amenities. The menu and beverages at the bar are all great and we were so surprised by the lovely welcome drinks! Big compliments to all the staff who are so attentive, friendly & very helpful. A special shoutout to Sergue & Amin for their kind hospitality & making our time in Havana memorable.

Super friendly staff. A staff at the bar provided welcome drinks when we arrived. The room was clean and heartily decorated. Some rooms even provided a welcome rum.

I love this place
I felt right at home in this place - friendly staff who want to do the very best for all of their guests, quiet comfortable, clean and well decorated rooms, a cool little bar as popular with the locals as with guests and a location that is central without being stereotypically touristy. I also stayed in one of the larger typical hotels when in Havana and this place was significantly better. Not cheap - but worth it.

The staff at Residencia were incredibly helpful, keen to make sure everything met our expectations. Thank you Julia you were just amazing and so accommodating to our many requests for assistance, Amin was also really helpful. An excellent breakfast, fresh fruit, eggs and toast. Coffee/tea. They organised taxis, offering advice in navigating locations across La Havana and changed our room configuration without hesitation. Very comfortable room with all amenities and a deck to have a drink in the afternoon. Great location within easy walking distance to good restaurants and attractions, markets, main plazas and museums. High recommended.
