The location is really good, practically in the city center and close to all major sites, restaurants and bars. The room with ensuite bathroom was quite big, well mantained and clean. The hosts are very... More

The rooms are basic but clean and plenty of hot... More

We we're lucky to find this incredible casa particular in the heart of Havana. It's clean, it's quiet, and only 1 block from historic Obispo street.
