My wife and I stayed 6 nights (in April 2014) with Julio and his wife, two medical doctors with their 2 sons. Very friendly and talkative, helpful and open about their culture. The house has tidy rooms with good mattresses, spacious toilets, hot and cold water all the time, very quiet. There are fans and air conditioning in each room... More

Ideally located between charming Habana Veijo and the hip neighbourhood of Vedado. Great breakfast. Clean bathroom, comfortable room, and it is so pleasant to sit out of the balcony in the evening! Highly recommended!

During our visit to Havana in December/January we stayed with Julio and Isabel on 2 separate occasions. They have a lovely home in a fantastic location which enables their guests to experience the real Cuba. I was attracted by the balconies on the picture and they did not disappoint. It was wonderful to wake-up to the sounds of vibrant Cuba,... More

What a wonderful experience we had at this Casa. Julio and Isabel were absolutely delightful, helpful and interesting to talk to. After a long day walking through the busy streets of Havana, opening the door to this beautiful home was a quiet, peaceful reprieve. The breakfast available for a mere $3 was substantial and delicious. One of our favourite memories... More

Casa El Mirador was the first casa particular we stayed in and we found it very pleasant. It is located in central Havana on San Rafael street close to many nice sights of the city. It is an amazing 15 min walk through genuine Havana residential-blocks to the Capitolio-area. And another 10 min walk to old Havana. It is also... More
