This Casa near many interesting places in the center of old Havana is a perfect place to start your exploration of Havana. Only 20 minute walk from the Cathedral, which you see from the balcony. Clean rooms and good breakfast lets you get a good start every morning.

Spacious Twin bedroom on roof terrace. Casa is located right around the corner of Plaza Vieja, perfect for a stay directly in the Heart of Havanna. Fantastic breakfast on the roof terrace. Friendly hospitality. Major Places of Havanna in walking distance. Good service and kind hospitality.

We sucessfully booked this casa few months before coming to Havana. All of the sudden on the day before our coming, the host cancelled the reservation. Unaware of this (very difficult access to internet in Cuba) we uncosciously arrived to casa to the suprise of the owner. After some discussion we were offered to stay. Later on however, the host...

Located right next to the beautiful Plaza Vieja and an excellent small cafe with great music, the door enters on to several flights of stairs...so not for people with any mobility problems. We had one of the rooms on the top floor which was greatly enhanced by the large terrace where we enjoyed delicious breakfasts and time just to relax.We...

I had a great stay here. There is music everywhere, at all times. The live music in Havana is amazing and put me to sleep every night. The location here can't be beat - you are steps to Plaza Vieja and two doors down from live music in the restaurants/bar and in the Plaza. The breakfast is fantastic and very...

The casa has a very good location, very near to the square Havana Vieja in the center of Havana old town. The casa has 4 rooms, two rooms one second floor and two rooms on the roof, where the roof terrace is. Those two rooms have bathrooms ensuite and direct access to the terrace. They are therefor a bit more...

The area is really shabby and as you arrive you think Oh no, we've mad a mistake! BUT get inside up the stairs and stairs and stairs and you get to a nice place with an excellent roof terrace for breakfast. Tom the Dutch host is so positive and makes you very welcome.......the manager is the opposite!

This Casa is the place to stay in Old Habana if you want comfort, awesome food, helpful people, a friendly environment and location, location, location.
