Best casa in Santiago! Actually one of the best casas I've stayed at in Cuba, and I've been at a whole bunch now. Norka, her daughter and the staff are all excellent hosts. I was also invited to Christmas dinner on christmas eve and got to use the washing machine without any trouble. Food is excellent and the casa is... More

Norka's house is very stylish and the room we stayed in was comfortable and clean. The house is well located and is only a few minutes walk from the main square. We like to walk and so visited all of the main attractions on foot but if that's not your thing you can easily pick up taxis etc nearby .... More

Norka’s house is cozy and welcoming. We were only in town for a night but it seems like a good base of operations for a longer stay, not far from pedestrian boulevards and the main plazas. We got to eavesdrop on a CDR meeting from our room. They made us a lovely breakfast, early in the morning as we had... More

We spent 7 weeks traveling around Cuba mostly staying in casas. This one was comfortable but not exceptional. Norka spoke good English and provided us with a lovely breakfast. The location was pretty good being far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but within walking distance. It would have been nice to have our own... More

Thank you so much Norka, we had such a wonderful time staying with you! Norka has the most beautiful house, and she cooked us a wonderful meal, which was so delicious. She's really helpful and made us feel welcome and at home in Santiago de Cuba! Really recommend staying here.

We stayed 2 nights at Casa Azul, as the first stop in our first-ever Cuban trip and as a family trip (with 2 teenage daughters and their grandmother). What a wonderful way to start our holiday! Norka's hospitality was amazing. As we were celebrating our grand-mother's 80th birthday, Norka had bought some flowers for her room as well as baked... More

Norka is an amazing host and cook. She is doing her best to provide a comfortable staying and can help you with arrangement of your trip if you want to. Do not forget to ask her for daiquiri after dinner which was the best we had in Cuba. We spent nice time in her beautiful casa.
