My wife and I spent three nights here in a room on the top floor, the air con was a welcome addition and the terrace where a superb breakfast was served each morning. An ideal location to explore Havana from and Karen and her staff were very friendly and helpful, we couldn't have wished for a better place from where... More

This is the only Casa we arrived at in Cuba that didn't offer a welcome drink which would've been very welcome after climbing the 44 steps up from the main door so if you can't do stairs I wouldn't stay here. Our room was nice & clean as was the wet room. There was a nice roof terrace to dine... More

When we arrived short after midnight, the nightguard told us that everything was fully booked. Even though I'd made a reservation months ahead. I also had email contact with the owner Karen so she knew that we would arrive after midnight and she'd assured me that this was no problem at all. After some time, the nightguard went upstairs to...

We made a reservation months in advance and when we arrived instead of two bedrooms we only had one. Even though we were completely sure that two rooms were the topic of our previous emails, the staff didn't seem to believe us. The next day they checked the history of the reservation and admitted the fault. However, they only presented... More

This casa was definitely the best we stayed in during our stay in Cuba. The hostess, Karen, and her staff were charming and ready to help for anything. The place itself is perfect, centrally located in the old habana neighbourhood, and with a huge terrace that begs you to come smoke a cigar and drink some rhum. The rooms are... More

we stayed here in December 2014. Karen was a wonderful host and we had a great stay. The location is perfect, next to Plaza Vieja, the breakfast was very good and the private balcony for the guests really nice. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. All in all a wonderful stay!

We made a reservation for Casa Vieja true an agency for 4 nights, but when we arrived there, we had to wait for 15 minutes outside, till somebody opened the door. They made us wait another 15 minutes inside, until Karen arrived and told us the reservation was lost, and there was no room available for us for that night.... More

My partner and I stayed here twice on our trip to Cuba and it was great. Wonderful room with extra points for the big comfy bed and the best pillows in Cuba. The room opened onto a fabulous roof terrace which was a great place to relax in the middle of the hectic city. Fantastic location right next to Plaza... More

We wanted to base ourselves in Havana the second visit to Cuba and just wander around the city. We picked the 1840 and it turned out to be an inspired choice. Karen and the others who work there are lovely. The two balcony rooms have air con and a simple, but pleasant decor. Sitting on the balcony in the evening... More
