The hotel is in a turn of the century building. Lots of veranda's on every floor. Floors and walls are original wood providing a feeling of the 20's. There is a restaurant which faces the river walk and bar that is open in the evening. You can get to everywhere by walking from this hotel. Although the taking the river... More

This is one of those places you HAVE to see to believe. All the comforts you crave like a comfortable bed, privacy, wi-fi but then add some historic charm and you have the best hotel in San Antonio. Alton Brown stays there when he visits because it is that great, but he probably really likes the OCHO restaurant attached to... More

When I walked in my first thought was this is what I'm looking for in a hotel. The lobby is serene and relaxing. It really feels like you are transported to another time. The lighting is low but it fits with the ambiance. When I saw my room I was thrilled at the thought of spending the next 3 days... More

Booked a room for 3 nights to attend an event at the Tobin Center which is ideal since it right next door. The Problems: There is no big sign to let you know where to park or where to register. The parking lot is very narrow and cars reversing can hit other cars. I actually saw a car hit another... More

For leisure travel, I enjoy a hotel with history and character, something different from the business chain hotel of my work life. This hotel fit the bill perfectly. It is technically located on the riverwalk but is actually a short walk (15 minutes?) from the central riverwalk restaurant area. The rooms were of adequate size and all come with a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Havana in Oct. 2016 adjacent to the Riverwalk. At this location you are 5-6 blocks from the main activities associated with the Rivework. The hotel has some age but with age comes character. Our room was small but adequate, wood floors (noisey),no microwave but a well stocked refrig. Everyone was helpful and kind. Did not... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights and really enjoyed it. The staff was awesome and the coffee in lobby was so good. The hotel is a short walk from the Alamo and the heart of the riverwalk.

Nice older Boutique hotel right at the end of the River Walk. Very convenient to move around the city. The room was well appointed and had all the latest conveniences. The Ocho, is a very nice small restaurant with a great menu. The waitstaff was outstanding. The bar down stairs is very dark actually too dark to see most anything.... More

A weekend stay in a lovely hotel. A nice change of pace and ambiance from chain hotels. We stayed in room # 10 & 11 on the first floor, not 100% sure now. Not a great view, but the room was so charming and well appointed. Probably too dim lights, especially in the closet area. We had a light lunch... More
