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

Casa 1940 is very well located in Central havana, just one block from the Malecon. Dory was an very good host and provided very useful information about Havana. Breakfast was good and I would recommend this to all my friends. I certainly will go back to Havana next year and I hope this Casa will be available.

Good, clean and quiet apartment, bathroom, shower, balcony and good location ( close to sea and center). You will get the whole apartment for yourself instead of just one room like it is in normal casas particulares. Very nice for couples, friends or families who travel together. Also good for one or two people. Friendly, English speaking hosts who can... More

A great casa to finish off our Cuba holiday. A flat for the price of a room with a lovely lounge and a little balcony. Great location just seconds away from the Malecon. Wonderful and friendly host. What more do you need? Highly recommended.

Good location, great food, very comfortable and informative start for a trip to Cuba. Dory (a doctor) and her mom, Maria, are wonderful hosts. This was the only Casa in Cuba where we were quickly and accurately informed of the basic things we needed to know - what to avoid eating and drinking, what scams to avoid on the streets,... More
