Great location, bed, air conditioning, breakfast, and quiet too. It was a pleasure to stay at Elena's Casa. I had the single room with the larger bed and private bathroom. Elena was very helpful and provided good recommendations.

Elena's home is the best place to stay in la Havana, Vedado is a middle class neighborhood with a lot of important places nearby, Elena's home is 3 minutes walking from Capri hotel where you can connect to WiFi. I have been in many places in la Havana but this is the best.

I would strongly suggest you to stay in Vedado specifically in Elena's place! Why Vedado? It's a nicer and quieter area so you'll have your freedom and quietness in the morning and when you go to sleep. Going to Old Havana our City Center will cost you 50 cts and 10 min with a shared cab which is even more...

“There are two rooms available. One has one bed, the other two. Hostals in Cuba are small, but this one has plenty of sitting area which Elena shares so generously. You feel like you belong in Cuba when you stay with Elena. Book and go. You'll love it.”
