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 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
