My first time in Cuba and I am just impressed for what I see, starting with Casa Habana, friendly mini –hotel with great service, good food and great location. It is walking distance from a lot of point of interest: Malecon, Catedral, la bodeguita de en medio, plaza vieja, Floridita, Plaza Central, Havana Rum, Capitolio, etc., etc, with no doubt... More

A good casa particulare within walking distance of the main Vieja plazas (literally 5 mins to catedrale or Granma or armas even with stopping every 10 seconds for a photo-op). Booking was done over the Internet and also took up the offer of airport pickup (the cost of 25 CUC was cheaper than a friends airport taxi and at least... More

Stayed at the Casa Habana for three nights. Staff was great, breakfast good. As to the rest: no hot water for two nights. Moved me to a room with hot water the second night but there was a cracked window behind the curtain and all around the window the casement was open. That night I couldn't not sleep as I... More

I stayed en Casa Havana for one night, after which they are fully booked but kindly transferred me to another Casa in the same building. I like this place, however it's more like a mini hotel than a local family's home. The good thing about it is they are English speaking and the service is professional. The other Casa provided...

We stayed here when first arriving to cuba. It was a good place to start as my spanish is very rusty. 30cuc/night. Good breakfast, dinner available (sometimes)but too big. Order one between two. Friendly staff and very clean. Long walk up stairs, do not stay here if you have mobility issues. Room seven was quiet with a good strong and... More

Lovely rooms, very clean, freshly painted rooms and new bathrooms. Quite a hike up two flights of stairs that become narrower as you ascend but well worth the effort. The bed linens are changed every day. Very friendly and approachable staff. The food and breakfast in particular was disappointing. Would come here again.

We had a lovely room in this casa. The staff were really friendly, even the ones we couldn't communicate with that well due to our miniscule spanish skills. The food was yummy at breakfast and a very big dinner spread of traditional cuban food. We met lots of other travellers here who we saw on our onwards journey around cuba,... More

Everything about this casa was fantastic - the location, the staff, the food! The rooms were not fancy but they had everything you would need for 4 days in Havana and they were clean. All rooms were cleaned each morning which was appreciated. All staff we encountered were so great, the ones that couldn't speak English really made an effort... More

I wrote a lovely review for Casa Emilio, but I think it's the same as this. In any case-- aaaahhhmazing roof deck, great food (especially breakfast), fantastic staff and cozy rooms. As much as I'd like to experience other casas in La Habana, I can't imagine not sharing a cup of coffee with Leo and the gang there. Dinner and... More

This casa is actually 2 separate Casas joined together. We booked with friends and they were put next door on top floor and we were on the ground floor on a separate building, which was annoying. The photos on the trip advisor page do not match the accommodation we received. We stayed 2 nights. The breakfasts were not particularly good... More
