During business trip I stayed for 5 days at Villa Alicia. Owner Marta is a real host for travelers.
Nice appartment, clean and in a quiet area in the outbounds of Havanna. Restaurant of good quality next door.
Easy acces to city centre by using taxi (traveling for approx 15 minutes) In room a minibar with several cold drinks are available. Fine garden for relaxing with good seatings. Breakfast served in garden of indoors, good coffee.
Remarkable clean room with kitchen, bathroom and separate bedroom.

This is a "Casa particulares" With a very good service, and a beautiful garden. Its located next to a small restaurant. I have stayed there several times during the years, and can recommand this house to anyone, who preferes a silent room, still only appr. 6 km. from Central Havana

After the stress of arriving at the Havanna international airport and organizing a taxi the first impression of villa alicia is peacefull and calm. Marta, the arendedor, gives us a warm welcome and shows us the rooms seperated from the main building located in the very nice garden with a big mango tree...
The first impression lasts for the rest of our 5 day stay in La Habana. Every morning we ordered breakfast wich is realy rich and tasty. Coffee, bread, butter, jam, eggs, fruit, jugo, cheese,... served directly in the garden. Villa alicia is located in Barrio Playa about 4-5 km away from the old city center, so you have to take a taxi our bus to Habana Vieja but the tranquility of the rooms and the nice persons you get to know in villa Alicia are well worth it. The whole neighborhood is quite nice and calm, to the club Tropicana it is only about 2 km.
The cleaness of the rooms and the service provided by Marta and her helpers was superior to what we had in other casas particulares. The bedclothes were cleaned every day (!) and Marta tried to help us in any way she could. Apart from all of this, Marta speaks German very well, allthough she says she gets to use it very little and her English is far better.
We enjoyed our stay in La Habana and I think that staying in Villa Alicia was a mayor key to that.

I stayed in the upper of the two apartments for a fortnight in March.

It's modern, clean and comfortable and is set in a beautiful garden which is dominated by a huge mango tree - a veritable oasis, where having breakfast of fruit, eggs and coffee in the early sun is such a pleasure.

The house is in a quiet residential suburb, and Marta, the landlady, is really friendly and speaks excellent English and German.

The location is perfect if you want somewhere quiet to stay but with good transport links into centro Habana or Habana vieja. There is a Cadeca (exchange) and a fresh fruit, veg and meat market a 10-15 minute walk away, and La Casa de la Musica is just a few blocks down the road.

I would definitely stay again when I return to Habana.

The room is clean, independent of the main residence. I have nothing to complain about, except for leaving. It is not the cheapest place in the city, but it is affordable, and the comfort is well worth the money spent.

And the food? Delicious.
