Based on - rather positive - reviews written by travellers on TripAdvisor - we booked a room in Casa Purpura. The discription and the images on the website do not correspond to the actual situation. Our room was tiny, dirty, without window and access to it was through a narrow hallway and up a small staircase ! On their website... More

We stayed 3 nights at Alejandro and Ivette's house and it was okay. The room and house was tidy and the location was just awesome, close to the old town of havana and casa de la musica. But the atmosphere was rather businesslike than familiar which I missed a little bit. The breakfast was also too little compared to what... More

We stayed with Alejandro and Ivette for two nights during our stay in Havana. Their home is clean, the common area welcoming, comfortable and beautiful. It is located in a neighbourhood- an area where folks live their everyday lives. The room was small and clean, with a private bathroom, air conditioning and a mini-fridge. We were encouraged to use the... More

We have been in Cuba for a month november/december 2013 and we've had two stays at Ivette and Alejandro's place. The "casa" is located in the center of what's worth experiencing in Habana. The rooms are clean and nice. The sanitary conditions are excellent. In addition to being warm and good people, they're both well-educated people that it's possible to... More
