The intention of our stay was to be somewhere with electricity and running water while that was restored at our apartment. Let me just say that they provided the best service we have ever received at a hotel. My husband was sick and they custom made meals for him and even offered to provide medication to help him feel better. I wish we could have stayed longer and during a better personal situation. The hotel is gorgeous and it carries into the room. The staff are all friendly and helpful. I cannot tell you how grateful we are that we were able to stay here. Thank you to the staff who made us feel so welcomed and at ease as things were being repaired at our apartment.

We usually stay in luxury hotels, but this time we decided to live the real experience at this boutique hotel. It was one of the best decisions of our lives. We have never felt so comfortable at this colonial boutique hotel, with lovely decoration, great location and impressive service. The service was truly outstanding, specially Daniel and Jorge who made great recommendations, constantly asked if we needed anything and made us feel like home. We even had a small incident outside of the hotel and they helped us resolve it in an incredibly professional manner. Daniel made sure we had breakfast served at 6.30am (outside of breakfast hours) the day we were leaving and organized every taxi, transportation and needs we had. His recommendations were incredible, specially his "Fabrica del Arte" experience, which we found awesome. I would definitely go back to this place, and follow each and every recommendation they give us. It was fantastic and are very grateful.

After two visits to Cuba and having stayed in a few hotels and houses in Havana, we can say -with little doubts- that Vapor 156 is possibly the best lodging in town. Not just for its quality/price standard, not even for its refined colonial decoration and atmosphere but, most importantly, for the charming human quality of its staff. The warm welcome and coctel is not just sign of diligence but a real spirit of making the stay of the traveller enjoyable and real. The eight rooms in this two story house are spacious (two are suites), comfortable and clean (TV, fridge, amenities), fully cared by every day. Meals are served in the interior patio by a dedicated staff (Kenia, Elisabeth and Leyanet) and cook (Yuniet) and provided the scarcity of supplies and food delicacies in Cuba at the moment, we can say that food was fresh and quality high. But for sure, what we valued the most having all the former covered, was the great and frank predisposition and assistance provided at all times by its smart and efficient manager (Jorge) that together with its highly helpful and efficient assistant (Oscar) made us easy to begin feeling the real magic of Cuba (food, places, music, logistics, transportation..). Thank you both for sharing a bit of your lives with us, what a fantastic way to experience Havana!

An ideal Boutique hotel experience when visiting Havana. From the style to the service to the design, no detail has been missed from this hotel. They host you like you are family and go above and beyond every expectation you may have had about your experience in Cuba. Jorge the Hotel Manager is the perfect example of a true Hotelier, taking care of us every step of the way. Make sure you stay here if you want a truly authentic overnight stay experience in the heart of Habana. Also let Jorge plan your itinerary for you, he’s a master at listening to your needs and making sure to make them happen ++++. I wish the the team & the Owner of the property so much success and I look forward to recommending them to everyone I can in the future

The Vapor 156 is a very lovely furnished and beautiful hotel - or actually one would almost have to say: a museum! But a museum to touch and feel good. The reception is very warm and you get a very tasty welcome drink served directly. On three floors are very individually furnished rooms with great attention to detail. The mattresses are super comfortable. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. But the absolute dream is the breakfast. Here it is worth to take the upgrade to the premium breakfast, where you have a large selection of egg dishes, fruit, juices, etc. - super delicious! A true paradise in Havana!

It was also very comfortable, spacious and had a nice balcony. Breakfast was substantial, cocktails and dinner truly delicious and inventive-top marks to the chef!! I would definitely stay here overnight again or even make a reservation for cocktails and dinner. Thank you for having me @boutiquehotelvapor156!!

We stayed at the Vapor (premium room) for one night and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Will definitely be back. The property is well maintained and is furnished with beautiful antiques that you may never lay eyes on again. Vaulted ceilings, a great breakfast which was included and excellent hospitality from the manager, Jorge. Jorge was very attentive and genuinely enthusiastic about showing us the property. Muchas gracias!

We arrived for a last minute nights' stay in Havana after 6 days in Valerdero. After booking a different hotel that had let us down terribly once we actually arrived, we stumbled across Boutique Hotel Vapor 156 after essentially being left in the streets of Havana at night. After seeing our distress at their door and despite the current climate, they welcomed us in with open arms, calmed us down and had no hesitation in setting up a room for us. Such incredible people and unbelievably welcoming, the hotel was perfect and more than what I could have dreamed of. Turning what could have been a terrible experience of Havana into a positive trip full of warmth, love and genuinely amazing human nature at its' very best. The next day we were greeted with a wonderful breakfast and then we spent the day with Jorge walking around both Central Havana and Old Havana and truly seeing what Havana was like, most definitely not your usual ' city tour'. If you are in Havana, you must stay at Boutique Hotel Vapor 156. I cannot recommend them highly enough and feel that you will only truly experience the real Havana if you stay here. Thank you to Jorge and all the team. Keep being the wonderful human beings that you are, you really are a fabulously sparkling hidden gem in the middle of Havana.

It was a really nice stay in this hotel during our first days in Cuba. Jorge and all people around him was very nice to us. He took us for city sightseeing and showed us noce places. Everything was clean and well prepared. Food was delicious. We spent a great time there. And biggest point I wanted to mention here - they helped us a lot when we couldn't leave Cuba with our original flight because of Corona outbreak - Jorge manage a rooms for us so we had a place where to saty overnigh and helped us with internet so we were able to buy new flight tickets and many other things which helped us to get home. So we completelly recommend this hotel for stay.

When I arrived in Havana in the later evening as a solo first time visitor, I was a little apprehensive of what to expect. I need not have been concerned. Javier, the night manager gave me a warm welcome and was able to point me in the direction of a local eatery. The room itself was very comfortable and well appointed. Next morning Jorge was most more than helpful in giving directions and suggesting places to visit. The location could not have been better, being a few minutes from the sea front (Malecon) with both the old city and the more modern Vedado within walking distance. I must add my apreciation of all the help offered when the Corona emergency made me cut short a stay in Varadero and reurn to Havana. A quick call to Jorge to say I was on my way and he had a room prepared as well as helping with travel advice and other arrangements. In all Vapor 156 os a perfect choice for someone who want to see the best of Havana and needs a place with someone who speaks perfect English, or German combined with great knowledge and customer service
