Most of the rooms in the city center were full. Olga's house and the house of her sister are a little bit more to the nord, but still in the center. We had a small room (only for 1 night) in the house of the sister, but breakfast was in the house of Olga. Very quiet situated. Olga is friendly... More

We stayed in this casa 3 days in March 2014. it is very closed to main square of Santa Clara and Blindado Train. Casa is very clean and it has seperate shower and toilet. Breakfast is also delicious with rich tastes. Olga and Zaida are very helpful sisters. They found a hostel in Trinidad for us and they called a... More

We stayed with Olga for 2 nights in early March. It was one of the best casas we stayed in during our time in Cuba. Olga was incredibly helpful. On a rare occasion when she couldn't answer a question we asked (about a baseball match) she called a friend to ask her instead! An excellent breakfast was provided too -... More

We stayed in Olga's sister casa which is a less desirable location than hers. It is around the corner and our room was on a noisy street. There was a second room but it only had single beds and we wanted a double. Breakfast was at Olga's so we had to go outside and walk a block to get there.... More

This Hostal (Casa Particular), has two back to back houses, fronting on opposite streets, run by two sisters, Olga and Zaida. Initially, we went to the front side (opposite a church Court Yard), where we were met by our English speaking hostess, Olga. However, we slept in one of Zaida's units, fronting on the other street. As you enter, the... More

We spent a total of three nights at this casa in January. It was our first time staying at a Casa Particular and it couldn't have been a better or more enjoyable experience. Olga met us at the airport (her English is very good) and drove us the twenty minutes or so into town to her place. She charges 20CUC... More

I stayed with a friend for one night in November 2012. Olga picked us up from the bus station and drove us back to the casa (for no extra charge) - great to be able to avoid the usual bus station crowds pushing taxis, casas etc at you. The casa is beautiful, with a lovely roof terrace and central patio,... More

We arrived from Trinidad early in the morning and had some one waiting to pick us up from the bus station and take us to Olga's. Since we arrived early in the morning she cooked us breakfast for 4 CUC, which is easier then going out to find a place. It was a typical Cuban breakfast of eggs, ham and... More

My stay was from May 12 2012 for two nights. I have traveled to Cuba multiple times and this was my 5th visit to Santa Clara. First stay at Casa Olga. In the past it was always busy and could not get room. We felt at home. Olga is nice and very customer service oriented person, lively, helpful, caring, and... More
