We stayed at this casa from Dec. 16 to Dec.20. We were family of three adults and have visited havana for the first time. We haven't stay other than this casa. we can't compare it with other hotels or cases. Thus it is solely our feeling and judgement. First, I should mention how the owner, Elena was kind and helpful.... More

Firstly, Elena was great to communicate with, she will apologise for her English but really doesn't need to. She arranged a taxi to pick us up and welcomed us to her home. She gave us a run down of the city, some history and explained/answered our questions about Cuba, it's people and the currency. She offered some great recommendations for... More

I was in Havana 2yrs ago and I stayed with Elena. On my return trip, there was no question as to where I would be staying again. Clean facilities, and I found the location central to my needs. Area is also quiet at night. I highly recommend this casa.

Elena was very welcoming, offered me a drink and even a WiFi card for me to send an email to my family on arrival. Very good breakfast too, probably the best I've had in... More

It was a great stay at Maria's. She was away during our stay but had friends attending to us. Wish we had known more Spanish as it would be a richer cultural experience to communicate with her friends. They were warm and friendly hosts despite the language barrier. Clean, excellent location, great breakfast.
