Norka and her daughter were super cool and helped me out a lot in my journey through Cuba. Norka was a sweetheart and put me in contact with people from all over east Cuba to facilitate my way across the island. The environment was great and the casa really felt like a home. I super recommend them!

I've visited several times Santiago. I've stayed in many houses over there and I can ensure that Casa Azul is different to all of them. You can see perfectly it's a house where lives an architect. Norka helped us to find interesting nice places because she´s excellent as a tour guide. I'll never forget the pleasant time around that wonderful... More

It is our second time at Casa Azul and really I advise you this accommodation if you visit Santiago. The house as always was clean and we felt very comfortable. We appreciated a lot the food & the cocktails but especially the good times that we spent speaking with the owners Norka and her daughter Isabel in their marvellous courtyard.

Norka and her daughter, supported by a maid, run this casa. We ended up here, because the casa we should have stayed (Casa Laudelina) was overbooked. Norka is very friendly and very helpful. She took the time to explain how everything works and what places are nice to visit in and around Santiago de Cuba. This was of great help... More

Rooms were large and clean, giving good value for the area. Its nice to have a quiet spot so central yet feeling away from he busy... More

This is a wonderful Casa in a great location close to the main sights the city has to offer. My partner and I speak very little Spanish which we feel may have hindered us slightly, however all the Casa owners we stayed with made great efforts to overcome this barrier and Norka was no exception. The house itself is absolutely... More

Awesome place! This casa is cozy, modern, and close to the center. Norka, the host is very welcoming and helpful. The room is upstairs, with private spacious bathroom, and very cute balcony overlooking the inside yard and the street. We only tried breakfast there, but it was very delicious, and the atmosphere is so friendly in the little courtyard. I... More

Highly recommend Casa Azul. Norka is a very helpful, welcoming, and professional host who has an attractive modern house situated within 5 minutes walk of Parque Cespedes. Our bedroom was reasonably quiet by Cuban (and city centre) standards. Decent food and unlike other casas we stayed in we didn't feel like everything was "measured", or that the casa owner was...

Like an oasis of calm in the midst of busy Santiago city centre we could retreat to a comfortable room with fan and cooler and wonderful meals. Norka was away when we arrived but her sister and friends looked after us until she returned just before we left. The courtyard was full of hanging plants and a lively parrot. We... More

Casa Azul is well located to visit this city of music and dance. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We parked our car in front of the neighbor who kept an eye on it. Norka runs her casa with the help of her friends, all very kind and helpful. Breakfast and dinner are very good. They are served at... More
