Once you've negotiated the endless stairs the view from the roof terrace makes it all worth while! Then, once you learn that there is a pulley system in place to haul your luggage up and down, the stairs are forgotten. All the staff who were working during our two stays (November and December 2015) were very kind and helpful even... More

This was my second stay at La Terrazza de Manolo (first being Feb 2014) and I very much recommend it. Senora Barbara and her son Jose are excellent hosts and the staff who maintain the terrace are kind and friendly and made me feel very welcome. The terrace is a lovely place to sit, enjoy the view and have a... More

I was travelling with Team Lynch so please read their review as it is perfectly summed up. I stayed at this casa (or should I say I tried to stay) 3 times in a 3 week trip around Cuba. On arrival around 11.00pm after a days travelling from the UK we were moved to another casa as someone from our... More

The beautiful terrace, the wonderful position (next to Plaza Vieja), the extreme kindness of the personnel (3 amazing girls!!!) and grandma Barbara sympathy are the strong assets of this casa particular. However, the weaknesses are: - not so comfortable rooms: the air conditioned is not in all rooms, there is no fridge and they are a little bit old; -... More

I accidently found out about this B&B place in Havana Vieja when I took my salsa classes on the guesthouse' rooftop. I was pretty fascinated about the view, landscape and feeling the breeze in the middle od Havana Vieja was for me a prize! The overall stay was mixed between safety and a lil bit noisy at times, but again... More

We feel a review of Terrazza de Manolo needs to bit split into two sections, the terrace/location and the running of the Casa itself. We are friendly, relaxed and undemanding travelers and we stayed in many casas on our Cuban trip which all have their individual quirks and charms. This was our last stop, and this is meant to be...

Manolo's hosts took great care of me. An airport pickup was arranged and I got a lot of advice on what to visit in Havana and Cuba. They also helped me rent a car for an overnight trip in Trinidad and they arranged for me to stay at a friend's house. On the last day I was unable to withdraw... More

This was my second stay at Terraza de Manolo, and the improvements continue! Manolo has added a private bath to a second room on the roof, and made a doorway onto the back terrace. In addition, he has begun a restaurant on a platform even higher than the terrace rooms, which offers a spectacular 360 view of Havana by day... More

We booked this casa through Rent Cuban House, one of a number of agencies that you can book Cuban home stays through and they turned out to be very reliable. They arranged a taxi pick up from the airport. After climbing five flights of stairs we reached the rooftop and the views of Havana were outstanding. The rooms are clean... More

Is central located in Old Havana. The room is on the top floor terrace with a 360 view of the town. However there is a price to pay as it is 104 steps to the terrace. Plan so that you spend all day exploring the town and not running up and down the stairs. Friendly and helpful staff, a good... More
