Jorge Silvio was an absolute amazing host. As a gay couple in Havana for the first time, he took great care of us. We were immediately made to feel comfortable and at home. This place has every possible amenity--a/c, private bathroom, safe, etc. There is no WiFi, but there isn't WiFi in ANY home in Cuba, only public parks and... More

Cosy little home in big Havana, well located and so friendly. The landlord Jorge work day and night to help his guests. He is always available for a chat, an advice or a help, speaks fluent English and can arrange whatever you need for your trip in the island: transport, accommodation, sightseeing tours, chauffeurs, appointments at the clinic, ...

The "Casa Jorge" is in the center Havana, in an authentic area of Havana, where you can observe some of legitimately Cuban life. We chose to go to Old Havana every day walking, which gave us a lot of happiness. We were also walking the Malecon and the newest area of Havana. We were very happy with the proximity to... More

We had a good stay at Jorge's casa, the room was comfortable and air conditioned. We also had a fridge in the room. The room did have a very small windows so was really dark. On a rainy day it was a bit dreary with only a tiny window. Thankfully we only had 1 rainy day. The casa is in... More

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
