I loved my stay at Isel and Ileana's Casa. I want to go back to stay there and to see them! The location was wonderful. I wanted to be in Old Havana within easy walking distance of everything and that was exactly what I found. The food that they served me was more than I could eat, fresh and really... More

I can't imagine a better place to stay while visiting Havana. Isel's house is in the heart of it all; and Isel has such a big heart! Room: nice bed, spacious, great balcony, accessible bathroom, air conditioning, good lighting. Food: the best rice and beans in all of Cuba (I have to get the recipe), great fruit and eggs for...

Isel, Maria and Ileana are fantastic hosts for you in the center if Havana Vieja. Location is #1, two streets from the center of pedestrian tourist activity in Old Havana. Safe, helpful, friendly. If you are an independent traveller, you will appreciate the local help that Isel provides. They also provide a great big breakfast of fruits and eggs for... More

"Gay, no problem. No gay, no problem." Here you will experience Cuba in a way that most tourists never do. Isel and Illeana are two of the warmest people I have ever met. Gracious hosts in every way, they make you feel like you are staying with good friends. We rented the casa for a week and found it to... More

What a wonderful place to stay. We were happy and lucky to stay in this Casa. They are busy and we were able to get one glorious night in their home. The balcony is a real treat, since you can look down and watch the comings and goings of Cubanos. The breakfast service was delicious and lots of attention to... More

I spent two days at Isel's place in Havanna. The location is great, right at the heart of "La Habana Vieja". But the best of this place are Isel and Ileana, they are super friendly and very good people. I consider Isel my Cuban Mum, from the beginning we get along very good with each other and she would advice... More

We had the best time! We used this casa as a base for our travels around Cuba. Isel connected us to other casas from around the island including her brother in Trinidad and friend in Cienfuegos. Their casa is a great location in Havana and Ileana is the best cook and makes the yummiest flan we had in Cuba! Thanks... More
