Compared with the other 6 casas we stayed at, this was definitely the best one! It was modern, nicely furnished and spacious and within walking distance of the centre. The breakfast was on the rooftop of the casa, which was also very good.

we were nicely surprised by the bathroom, beautiful art deco, and the roof terrace where the meals are taken; our breakfast was really great, but dinner was a bit disappointing to us, we ate meat to make a change and it was overcooked, as a whole not the best meal we had in Cuba. The owners are friendly but did... More

The casa is very centrally located, only a few steps from Santa Clara's main square. Although the room was big enough and had all the facilities we needed, it was a bit bare and we missed the atmosphere and friendliness we experienced in the other casas, especially upon arrival. During dinner at the casa (which was good) and especially breakfast... More

During our trip to Cuba a visit to the town to visit the Che memorial was planned. Arriving in Santa Clara and navigating the roads, a young lad on a bicycle appeared, asked if were looking for Hostal Amalla and led us on his bike through the narrow streets to the Hostal! Greeted by the Manager we were shown to... More

Friendly welcome with choice of rooms (went for the one with air-con). Room on top floor was spacious with large bathroom but didn't seem to be serviced on a daily basis. It was up the narrow and steep stairs which also lead to the very pleasant and well furnished roof terrace where breakfast and meals are taken. The breakfast was... More

What a wonderful centrally located Casa! I stayed April 11 - 15 and upon my departure booked 5 nights for an upcoming trip in November. The rooms are standard buy very well appointed and comfortable. Hostal Amalia is centrally located on a very quiet street and I experienced no noise problems during my stay. Please note that Hostal Amalia is... More

Lovely casa with a gorgeous roof terrace. Owners are lovely. Room very nice and private. Good bathroom, plenty of hot water. We ate dinner and breakfast there and both were really lovely and well prepared. The location was right in the centre perfect for seeing all Santa Clara has to offer.

The owner Luisito very helpful, phoned ahead to confirm my next hostel reservation, and made the bus reservation to Varedero. I was met at the Varedero bus terminal by my next hostel owners. Welcome coffee on arrival. Clean quiet room with private bathroom. Rooftop terrace location for breakfast. Staff very helpful and friendly. Convenient location to the main square.

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.
