This was our second stay at Casa Jorge and we were greeted like old family members returning home. Jorge is a charming host and always more than helpful to his guests. Elena and Rudolfo are very welcoming and friendly. The neighbourhood looks a bit sketchy but it always felt safe even late at night. Havana vieja is easily accessible by... More

Casa Jorge is perfectly placed in Centro Habana - you can reach all interesting places like Malecon, Vedado and Capitolio area within 10..20 minutes walking. So its a very good starting point for exploring the city. Furthermore the people in the casa particular did care like a family for us. Whenever we needed an information or anything must be arranged... More

I spent two nights at Casa Jorge Silvio. Jorge and everyone else who worked at the casa were extremely welcoming and friendly. Jorge always took a lot of time to make sure I was comfortable and had all the info I needed each time I left his house. Elena and Rodolfo made delicious breakfasts and fresh fruit juices, and were... More

I was in Jorges casa in July 2014. I was very lucky that I found this place. The rooms offer everything you need (A/C, double bed, fan, fridge, shower, TV...), there is the possibility to eat a simple breakfast ($5) or dinner there and the place is clean and tidy. The place is located very good, close to Malecon, between... More

Making our first trip to Havana in July, we had already decided to look for a casa particular, and an Internet search for “gay friendly accommodation Havana” led to Casa Jorge Silvio. The positive reviews here on Trip Advisor encouraged us—and now, after a vivid eight days at Jorge’s house on San Jose, we add our own recommendation unreservedly. Not... More

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.
