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.

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.
