I highly recommend Casa Mercedes to anyone thinking of staying at a casa particular in Habana Vieja. Mercedes and her husband Jorge are very sweet, friendly and helpful and I quickly felt at home. The breakfasts were delicious with the perfect amount of food - fruit, bread, coffee, juice and scrambled eggs. Each room (and I stayed in all four... More

Everything about our stay was wonderful! Our hosts Mercedes and Jorge were very welcoming, always making sure we had all we needed. Our room was clean and comfortable and had an icy cold airconditioning (unlike other Casa's I've heard of), which is a must for us! I would highly recommend Casa Mercedes!!!

Our stay with Mercedes and Jorge was simply great. They made our first trip to Cuba a memorable one! Large room, with full bathroom, aircon and mini bar was great. the option of breakfast for an additional 5 CUC was also worth while! The taxi service that Mercedes offers to organize are almost always 30 CUC, regardless of where you... More

This was our first casa in Cuba so we didn't know what exactly to expect. However, during our trip we realised that this was the worst accommodation we had in Cuba. The location and casa are very good, the services and the attitude of the owner are the problem. At breakfast you could get only one glass of juice and... More

Friends from Australia who travel a lot recommended Casa Mercedes to us so we didn't do any research of other casas in Havana. We sent an email to Mercedes and got a very quick reply confirming availability. She arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and told us that we didn't need to spend a long... More

Clean, large room, very good cuisine (breakfast & dinner). Mercedes and Jorge are so dear and kind. They planned our trips to Playa Larga and Vinales and reserved the casas in both places and the transport. When we said goodbye, we felt as leaving relatives of ours.

We were pleasantly surprised by this spacious casa right in the middle of Habana Vieja, close to the Casco Histórico of Havana. It was recommended by the owners of our previous Casa in Trinidad, Hostal Iraida. Rooms a clean and comfortable, a/c, TV, fridge and a very good breakfast. Location obviously is perfect to wander about and explore Havana Vieja... More

Mercedes and Jorge are wonderful hosts. They could not have been more helpful. Their house just oozes charm and is very clean. I felt completely at home and safe here. I spent quite a few hours just sitting on their balcony watching Havana go by. Great experience and I highly recomend it.

This casa has a good location in Havana Vieja and the bedrooms are clean. That being said, with all the options of casas available in Havana I would look further. The reason we chose to stay in a casa is for the local experience which we didn't get much of in this casa. In the contrary, Mercedes is very eager... More
