We visited Havana and elected to stay in local accommodation as we wanted to put our money into the local economy as opposed to a major chain. Firstly, let's manage your expectation. There is some real, crushing poverty in Havana and you will not be insulated from it if you decide to stay in this part of the city. Having said that, absolutely everyone we met and chatted with in the surrounding area was welcoming, friendly and happy to see people visiting amongst them. The guest house is clean and laundry was changed every second day. The rooms are air-conditioned even if the units can be a little noisy. However, even in 34 degrees C the room was easy to maintain at a good temperature. The staff are absolutely lovely and using the international system of hand waving, you can get your message across. Remember, you're in their country so if you don't speak Spanish, it's your fault and not that of the staff. The owner almost bursts with pride when welcoming you into his property and his daughter (I think) has very good English having lived in Western Europe. Breakfast is convenient and filling. You won't get large quantities of meat as in Cuba it's hard to come by. However, it was probably the most healthy diet I've eaten in years; lots of fresh bread from the bakery across the road and fresh fruits of all varieties. The accommodation is a very easy walk into the Capitol (maybe 800-1000m) and you can pick up large bottles of water from the stall on Zanja and Galiano ($1.90 for 5 litres at the time of writing). It's also very close to Malencon. Watching the storms at night was an incredible experience. So in summary? I really enjoyed staying here and enjoyed meeting the hosts as well as Australian, American, German and British guests. Forget your preconceptions and throw yourself into the wonderful maelstrom that is Havana. If you want to love in a Western bubble then the Kempinski will happily charge you 10 times the price for the honour. But you'd be missing out.

My friend and I stayed for 5 days recently. Sinai was incredibly helpful in getting us set up with local experiences throughout our stay. She helped get us to interesting places in the city by drawing attractions on a map and made herself available to us whenever we needed. The apartment was perfectly clean and easy to get to. Sinai lives next door, just a short walk away. On our last day Sinai helped get us a cab to the airport. She is organized and well connected to get guests tours and help them find what they're looking to get from their stay in Havana. This was our first time there and we will be back.

When we arrived in Havana we we’re not so amused about our current guesthouse, so we went looking to book another casa for our return to Havana 4 weeks later. We came to casa … and they showed us the rooms who we’re very nice and clean. Also the good hospitality convinced us to reserve a room for at the end of our trip. When we arrived back in Havana they said the casa was fool (double?) booked and we got a room in the attic above the kitchen ! The day after they knew it wasn’t right and we got a discount of 5 CUC, but not more than that. Rip off !!! Because we left Havana 2 days later we also booked a taxi to go to the airport. They wrote it down and everything was ok until we wanted to take the taxi. They misunderstood us and tought we had arranged a taxi by ourselves to pick us up ! So no taxi more available ! Then we have solved it ourselves. The owner only smells money, absolutely not recommended !!!

Response from Yali G, Gerente at Casa Miriam Hostal Colonial
Responded Aug 25, 2018
We are very sorry for you bad experience and we work hard everyday to avoid misunderstanding that make feel our guests not well. But I do have to correct some wrong information you have post, first, the house was not overbooked as you mentioned as the rooms in the second floor ( 2 of then) are reachable by stairs located next to the kitchen area, this is a common thing in colonials houses dating back from 18th century. Actually others guests have reviewd and stayed in the same room. So telling the other travellers the house was overbooked its not correct. We respect you did not like the room but is not right to say we were overbooked. When you came before your stay to see the house we could only show you the free rooms but we did told you could have being any of the rooms available in the house. About the trasnfers to the airport I personally asked you about the trasnfer and you say no, the word no for me in english and spanish as far as I know mean negation, and if we were money smellers as you say we would have book you the taxi anyhow so you would have to pay it at the end, on the contrary doe to your complains I made a discount of 20 % price of the room to try to confort you besides the fact you were not right. I have read the review you have left to the house you were in Havana before and realize perhaps your espectations about Havana were not fullfill but being offended and place a bad review with no reazon or because we didnt not understand each other does not sound fair. For us hosting you was also a bad experience and we would work hard in the future to aovid experiences like this.

We stayed for three nights in this colonial house and we had a very pleasant stay. Our bedroom was clean and confortable. We enjoyed the breakfast, fruits, eggs and juices. The location was very convenient, Centro Havana is very authentic - close to Malecon and 10 minutes walking from old Havana. Hosts were very welcoming and helped us with all our needs, notably to get back to the airport to get our delayed luggage and to arrange the transport to Vinales. Finally we really recommend this hostal. Thanks a lot.
