Just stayed here for the second time and it continues to be wonderful. The location is perfect right next to the main entrance of the University of Havana in Vedado. Casa Carlita is much like a Bed and Breakfast. I always feel extremely safe while here as I have only traveled to Cuba alone. I eat breakfast there every morning,... More

Excelent food, its clean and comfortable and Carlita is a very open minded and helpful person. If I go back to Habana I defenetely will stay at her place again. Thank... More

I stayed here for a total of 10 nights. Moved from another Casa, which was awful. Felt incredibly comfortable here. Highly affordable at 25 CUC/night with a private bathroom. The food was incredibly fresh (difficult to find in Cuba) and well priced. The rooms were cleaned every day, without fail! The staff, and Carlita, went out of their way to... More

Casa Karlita is nice, the rooms are clean and the food is good. It is located in the area of Vedado, a 30 minutes walk to the old city Havana (or 10 minutes by taxi), but less touristic than the center and still rich in beautiful buildings, restaurants etc. The lady (Karlita) is very hospitable, speaks English and likes to...

So my girlfriend and I were traveling to Havana for the first time and we arranged for a room at Casa Carlita. When we arrived it turned out Carlita was having plumbing issues in the bathroom and couldn't honour our reservation (Cuba isn't know for its speedy repair work). We went pale for a moment I'm sure, but Carlita wasn't... More

Casa Karlita has everything I look for when I am travelling, friendly staff, it's clean and have a good location. The Casa is located right outside the city center, by the University. Which is a quiet part of town, and at the same time within walking distance of everything. The standard of the rooms and bathroom are very good, they're... More

After my second stay at Casa Karlita, the first in 2011, and the second (but not last!) in June/July 2014, I felt the urge to share my good experience. The Casa is located right below the University of Havana, on the "border" between Centro Habana and Vedado, which is a nice and fairly quiet part of the city, with a... More

We were fortunate to stay at both Casa Carlitas during our visit to Cuba. Both were clean, comfortable, in great locations and the staff made you feel immediately at home! As for Carlita herself, so request was too great and she went out of her way to make our trip memorable. We could not rate our visit highly enough and... More

WOWZA! I don't even know where to begin... I booked this casa last minute and I must have incredible luck because this place was awesome!
