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.

Alina has a beautifull Colonial House which is in one of The best locations in Havana City Center. Excellente food is available, the house is very clean and Alina is a very friendly woman. Having stayed there for 4 nights we found it an ideal location as it is very near all of the major tourist attractions in Old Havana.... More

My wife and i stayed with Alina and her family in December for 7 days. The house is only a street away from the centre of old havana and is very clean and comfortable. The bedroom is large enough for two people and the bathroom is large enough. Alina and her family made us feel very comfortable and welcome at... More

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

Not recommended for families with small children (ours 3,5 and 7), since Alina's livingroom is full of temptingly cute porcelain figurines on low tables and shelves, and children are NOT allowed to touch, yet they have to pass on the way to the bathroom and kitchen and on the way out. Water dripping from ceiling in bathroom, alas only temporarily... More

We stayed at Casa Alina for 2 nights during 2012 Christmas holidays. I do not recommend it at all. First, Alina got mad at us because she had understood that we were gonna stay for 1 week instead of 3 nights, even though our (multiple!) emails were written in perfect Spanish. Then she probably found other guests for the week... More
