There was nothing not to like about this hostel! The room was well equipped with a fridge, air con, TV, toiletries in the bathroom. It was more beautifully furnished than most midrange hotels. The location was also great, about 5 doors away from the famous hotel National, there were about a dozen good restaurants nearby. We walked to old Havana... More

I stayed at Casa Tarajano for two weeks and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, well-situated place to stay in Havana. The location is ideal, only steps away from the very expensive Capri, Nacional, and Havana Libre hotels, as well as the Malecón, Copelia, and "La Rampa," one of the most famous streets in... More

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 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

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,...
