This is a truly remarkable place hidden away like a gem stone in an unexpected part of Havana but within very easy walking distance of the Old Town. From the bustle of street life outside you are transformed into another world of fascinating interiors each spectacularly decorated with an astonishing collection of 19th and early 20th century antiques including Art Deco and Art Nouveau era pieces as well as a mixed collection of ephemera from across the last century. Louis Miguel the young owner is a delightfully passionate man who really wants to share his enthusiasm with you, nothing being too much trouble and always willing to show you around his collection (even if you are not staying there). This has to be one of the very best Casa. Particulars in Havana.
