After a long travel on the plane, we reached the room exhausted and tired but the view of the apartment justified our choice! The apartment is quite big even for families,clean, fully equipped, art deco furniture and the most amazing part is the balcony and the view straight to beautiful Malecon..It captured me by the very first place! Actually, Maria... More

We were initially disappointed when Luis of Casa 1932 said he wouldn't have room for us when we were in Havana, but then when we got to see how much space we would have to ourselves round the corner at his cousin's Casa 1940 we were actually glad. Luis' place is wonderfully decorated and has lovely 'outside' seating areas and... More

As all the other visitors have already said, this apartment is great, Maria and Dorys are wonderful hostesses, the place is clean, spacey, air-conditioned, nicely decorated (1940!), has a view on the Malecón and the sea from the balcony, but is protected from winds and traffic noise of Malecón by another row of houses. We stayed for 10 days. The... More

Casa 1940 is most unique in that it is a private NON-SMOKING apartment (you may choose to rent 1 or both of the bedrooms), with 5 star service (best meals, housekeeping, laundry, tourist information, English speaking hosts, steps away from the waterfront, waterfront government restaurants & bars, high level security). What makes this particular location so special however, is the... More

We were lucky enough to stay with Dorys and Maria for our first three nights in Habana, It gave us the best start to our trip. We had been referred to 1940 by Luis Miguel after making an initial inquiry with 1932. Luis was super lovely and helpful and he promised I wouldn't be disappointed with 1940 and he was... More

I was referred to Casa 1940 from Luis at Casa 1932. It's a fully complete apartment. If your lucky enough to be able to book this it's perfect for longer stays as you have a private sitting room, dining room, kitchen, balcony, bedroom and bathroom. It's beside Casa 1932 see my review there for how good the location is. It's... More

A confortable and cheap place, a... More

This was my second visit to Casa 1940 and we received a warm welcome back from Maria and Dory. The apartment is spotlessly clean and airy with a view over the malecon within walking distance of Havana vieja. The hosts are charming and extremely helpful and the meals provided were excellent. I would visit this casa any time I return... More

I have absolutely no complaints, everything was perfect! Rooms had AC, not far from central parts of town, beautiful old architecture, and most importantly, the owners were fantastic! There were four of us and we all purchased the dinner and breakfast option, which was a good call because both meals were more than filling and delicious to boot. Dory made... More
