Havana was our last stop, thus we saw several casa particulares before arriving at casa Alina. The impression was to be in a cheap hotel with limited services instead that in a Cuban casa particulare with welcoming people. I`m not sure I would recommend it, sure you can find much better for the same price and location. The landlady recommend... More

I made a short trip to Havana and spent 2 nights at Casa Alina. I had mixed feelings about my stay there: GOOD 1. Good communication via email before my trip which confirmed availability. Other casas often do not respond to emails since internet connectivity in Cuba is so slow. 2. Alina arranged a taxi pick-up from the airport so... More

We spent one night here and Alina was very accommodating about our early arrival. As others have said the apartment is on the 7th floor with great vies but it has a very quirky old lift and you have to ring the bell for someone to let you in. Late at night, a neighbour in his pyjamas came down to... More

nice Casa at 7th floor with a wonderful view on the havana's roofs! Alina is nice and provide all you need for a good stay. the only one problem is that the elevator does not work all day.. food is good and you are in the center of havana vieja. close to bodeguita del medio.

Making our reservation was easy. Alina arranged for a cab from the airport to her front door. The room is large and airy, the sheets very nice, and the place is spotless. We had breakfast each morning at her kitchen table which has a view out over old Havana to the fort and beyond to the sea. It is dazzling.... More

Alina was a wonderful hostess with a lovely room for rent. Although I wish the water pressure was better, I can say overall that this was a great place to stay. I enjoyed waking up each morning to the sounds of Havana and watching the city come alive. I even learned how to operate an elevator, thanks to the spotty... More

We stayed for a almost a week and Alina was very nice to us, helping with tips and ideas to explore the area. She even helped us to plan the rest of our stay around the Island. The breakfast was excellent, always with fresh fruit and the location couldn't be better right in the heart of Havana Vieja. Highly Recommended.

After a brief visit last year, I stayed at Alina's for two months this time around. During this time, I felt like I was living at home. The house was clean and pleasant, the cooking was great, and Alina and her family were friendly and supportive. When I got sick, Alina went above and beyond to take care of me,... More
