We were so lucky to stay at Elena's Casa! It's a really amazing place with the most inspiring balcony in Havana. The rooms are spacious, clean and well designed. The food is delicious (try the exceptional coconut paste in the breakfast). But above all the benefits, we have to mention Elena. She is such an incredible and warm person. Thanks... More

I stayed at Elena's house with a friend of mine in 2013, but since I'm a bit lazy didn't write a review until today - when I finally reset my account. We stayed twice at Elena's, and both times we were super happy with our stay there. Elena is a great host, very organized, helpful and welcoming. The first time... More

I felt so at home staying with Elena. She offered me a welcome drink as we had a nice chat getting to know each other. The room was comfortable and had a mini-fridge stocked with beverages so that was super handy. Each room has a private bathroom. Breakfast was- DELICIOUS. So worth it. Location was great, near National Hotel and... More

We had found and booked Elena's casa on Trip Advisor before we landed in Havana. She is the most wonderful lady, she arranges and organises anything!!

Staying in Elena's house was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. So much so, that I have nicknamed her my Cuban mother. I usually like to stay at 4-5 star hotels when I travel and staying in a Casa in Cuba (though driven by hotel unavailability) was an experience I am now grateful I had. From her hospitality,... More

My wife and I have been three times in Elena's casa, twice with our child.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in February 2014 when we first arrived in Cuba. Before our arrival, Elena requested us to pay 20 euros via Paypal for the room reservation (i.e. 5 euros per each night reserved) - the paid amount was later deducted from our final bill.

We stayed at Casa Tarajano for only 3 days and would loved to stay for longer. Elena is very friendly and helpful host and we really felt warmly welcome. We had lunch once and breakfast every morning and food was delicious! Room was spacious and clean and house was easily found with map that Elena sent us.
