Casa was placed in a nice place. It was really close to the Capitol, Havana Vieja and Havana Centro. The location allowed us to go through the streets that normally aren't so often visited by tourists. Thanks to it we could see how normal Cubans live. Casa was also close to the

Thanks Klaudia, You perfectly described the value of Casa Mary y Miguel's location. We are close enough to all the main attractions, while still being part of a real Havana neighborhood. You can walk to Havana Vieja, but you don't have to live surrounded by only tourists. Our locations is both vibrant and safe. As for Miguel, he has been "organizing" plans for visitors for many years, he has good contacts all over Cuba and is a great resource person for the Casa as Mary also performs the same value to our Cafe Arcangel.

Nancy, I'm sorry there was confusion about the Paypal account. With the new U.S. regulations, Paypal payments CANNOT be made inside Cuba, they can only be made in advance, outside of Cuba. I know that doesn't make any sense, but that's the U.S. law. If Paypal is accessed inside Cuba, the account is frozen. We have successfully used Paypal at the time of booking when the visitor is outside of Cuba. I will provide that clarification in future bookings.

With deep regret, I must withdraw the previous favorable recommendation given in my Cuba guidebook, "4 Americans in Cuba." The charismatic and efficient Mary is devoting all of her time to the justifiably popular Archangel Cafe. The casa suffers. We chose the "garden room"

I'm not sure if this is the right place to review, but we stayed in a room across the street which was arranged by this casa and we paid them. When we arrived we had to wait a little (which was fine because we were early), but they offered us a free espresso for the wait

Seasoned casa particular guest here, never given a 1 star but unfortunately this one deserves it. Had to move rooms as the original one was above the cafe and very noisy. Also the toilet was broken and it took the patron several hours to come repair it for us. We moved to a

Nerissa, You are absolute right, we got overwhelmed and screwed up!!! Effective immediately we will NOT be using that upstairs room until we correct EVERY issue that you raised in your Trip Advisor review. We appreciate your honest reaction and apologize for your bad experience. We definitely will fix this and get it right!!!

Petra, Trip Advisor doesn't allow an email/website reference in its answer. Try the website of our Cafe at: cafearcangel for more contact information. Also I have a gmail account with the name HSMUKLER Hope that works.

"Friends had apartment style casas elsewhere with living room, kitchen, and fridge. Also had both entry & room key. One $18 & other $20/night"
"Do not stay in the upstairs room."
"Avoid the room directly above the cafe - it's hot and noisy. Try the rear rooms off the courtyard."
"Ask for showing you habitation no 5 - it seems more quiet that room above Cafe Arcangel (still, both are worth staying in)."
"The front room can be noisy."
