Jorge is what makes the place. I love to travel and it always takes awhile to understand a new country. With Jorge he makes it so much easier to understand how to have the best stay. Cuba is a very different place. Having someone who you can trust to tell you the do's and don'ts makes all the difference for... More

I was in Havana in August this year (2013), and stayed in Jorge´s casa for the 3rd time, 3rd year running. The house is in a great location, from where you can easily walk to Old Havana or Vedado. Centro Habana, where the house is, has a great buzz, and it is very safe, despite the first impressions. Jorge speaks... More

I was in Jorge´s house with my boyfriend for 10 days, and not only jorge but all his staff were very warming and friendly!!! The house is close to downtown, and breakfast is delicious. Rooms are quite big and very clean, every room has its own bathroom. Most important the price is good per night. Def worth it!

My partner and I spent 7 nights in this Casa in Central Havana (May 2013). It was perfect from beginning to end. I started emailing Jorge Silvio six months prior to make sure all would go smoothly. He was always prompt, friendly and helpful in his replies, always giving advice. While staying there he was an exceptional host who is... More

Jorge was simply the best LGBT host in all of Havana. Very welcoming and helpful, he gave us advice as to what to do, things to see, etc, etc! His acomodations are not very big but his friendliness more than enough compensated! I would greatly recoommend Jorge to any LGBT traveller heading to beautiful Havana.

The rooms are rather small, a bit noisy and the equipment is old but everything is clean and there is daily housekeeping. Jorge is a caring and friendly host who will help you with any requests that you have. The casa is gay-friendly but if you plan to bring more than one guest Jorge becomes irritated because he is afraid... More

Jorge, Rudolfo and his team offer a great service in what can be a complicated country to get settled into.....two currencies, travel card, culture, etc. I was collected from airport, currency exchange sorted at airport and taxi to casa, was all expertly handled by Jorge's contacts. The accommodation, location, breakfast, access to cash machines and currency exchange all nearby, all... More

Jorge met us at the airport with a taxi-driver friend, who helped us change money (avoid the big bills and US dollars) and took us straight into town at a good price, rather than round the houses. He was upgrading his water boiler when we got there, so we stayed in a very comfortable apartment owned by a friend of... More

I didn't stay with Jorge because he was booked up when I visited, but I met him, and he helped me find good gay-friendly accommodations at his friend's casa for my stay. He was very honest, friendly, and if I visit again, I will make sure to try to stay with Jorge. Havana was an amazing experience, and if you're... More

Let me start by saying if this is your first time to La Habana, you can't find a better host than Jorge Silvio. The word friendly is an understatement. I arrived in La Habana and I was picked by Mandy. After meeting Jorge I was surprised that I had a house to myself since his house was booked. Jorge set... More
