For us, La Casa Purpura was the perfect place, just when we needed it. We had just given up our room at another Casa in Centro Habana when my partner was struck down with a serious stomach problem. Needing a new place to stay, and unsure what we should do, we followed a recommendation from a new friend, and found... More

Great location with wonderful hosts who give many helpful tipps and recommendations for your stay in this interesting town. Breakfast was served for all guests at a big table together with Ivette. Thank you for the good conversation and all your support!

Absolutely wonderful casa - Alejandro and Daisy were so incredibly helpful and kind, Alejandro even went so far as to help me track down some medication I had left behind in Australia that I was desperately needing. He gave me really helpful insider tips to guide me around the city that I would have otherwise not known about. Daisy was... More

Great casa, really friendly hosts - Alejandro & Ivette were really helpful from providing a tour of the local neighbourhood to helping organise other parts of our trip in Cuba. The Purple House is in a great, central location close to the old town of Havana and the Malecon. Rooms were clean, a little on the small side but we... More

Only a few minutes walk away from the old city of Havanna, this casa was a good choice for spending 5 nights. Our room was small, but clean. The breakfast was great, with fresh juice, fruits, eggs and so on. The dining room has 4 balkonys with chairs, where you can relax and watch the people in the streets. The... More

This is the 2nd time I'm staying at La Casa Purpura - the location , the hospitality and the breakfast cant be beaten and made our stay very special. Thank you to Alejandro and Ivette for sharing their beautiful home with us and for welcoming us back. I highly recommend La Casa Purpura.

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
