We stayed at this casa in Santa Clara, after having stayed in 7 other casas throughout Western and Central Cuba. Based on our experience, Hostal Amalia definitely stands out for the outstanding service, superior quality of the rooms, and the fabulous rooftop terrace. The casa owner, Luisito, and his staff are extraordinary hosts. They went above and beyond to make... More

In this beautiful casa you will have breakfast on the roof with a stuning few. I went there with my father in December '14 and stayed for 1 night. A very warm welcome. Great place in the hart of Santa Clara.

Location is excellent, right in the city center, walking distance to many attractions and nightlife. Our room was nice and clean, with a private bathroom. Breakfast on the roof terrace was delicious -- lots of fruit, bread, and eggs cooked to your liking. Staff speaks some English and German, but we were trying to practice our Spanish most of the...

Great place, big air conditioned room and very clean. The Hostel is centraly located, just few steps from the main square. When we got to the hostel it was late in the evening, we were greeted warmly. The owner took our luggage to the room in order to save us the trouble. The stuff is very kind and nice, the... More

We were cordially received from the host parents Luis and Amalia! On of the best casa particulars in the city centre of Santa Clara with a great view over the city from the rustic and beautiful terrace. Amalia is a great chef - the best dinner of out tour.

Nice lovely place to stay with excellent staff. Rooms are ok, very clean, but no tv. Roof terrace is lovely, breakfast at the terrace is good and I would definitely stay for dinner, the food is good and much better dan other places in Santa Clara. The owner and staff member Daniel is very kind. Just across the main road... More

Great location - close to the main plaza and all the attractions in Santa Clara, yet on a nice private street so it's not too busy. The owner's and their staff (friends) were really friendly. We were given a choice of rooms to stay... More

Bull's eye for quality, location (near the center), support and friendlyness. We were there in low season and had a choice of 4 rooms. We chose the one which was most quiet although it had quite a narrow bathroom. Parking in the street with guarding by a pensioner for 2 CUC per night. Indeed a very nice roof terrace where... More

Casa owner was the nicest and most helpful person we met during our month in Cuba. Great clean rooms with lovely showers. Excellent roof terrace with lots of beautiful plants where we saw a hummingbird and view of main square. Breakfast and dinner, cooked by the owners wife were amazing.

I stayed only one night with a friend. Casa is perfectly located just off the main square, but quiet enough. Bathroom is modern and AC is provided. Stairs up to top floor are steep and tight, watch your head if you are tall, but it's worth the climb. The rooftop is gorgeous & cool with loads of plants. The hosts... More
