I was travelling with my boyfriend to Cuba and this house was an excellent introduction to the country. Our first “havana nights” were here and we ended up enjoying it so much that we came back again! First of all, the house is amaziiiiing! The rooms are big, super clean and confortable and we were in love with the decoration of the house! Every detail was amazing and the most surprising is that each thing has a different story! Horácio is a storyteller and filled our mornings with stories of objects from the house, the past and present of Cuba, loads of curiosities and advises from what to visit and where to eat. Him and Marta are two exceptional people who did everything to make our stay a pleasant one. They had so much patience with us. Example: the second time we came we confirmed just one night before and they arranged everything even in a short time. I can assure that if we hadn't known them, our experience in Havana would be much poorer. The breakfasts were served in a very pleasant room, and always included fresh fruit and delicious juice! Horacio is very talented so we were lucky enough to ate while he was playing piano! What an incredible way to start the day! The house is also very well located in a calm and practical part of the city. Its 5/ 7 minutes from the city center by car. In front you have a small and Nice restaurant, 5 minutes By Walking you can find an “Aqua e sapone”, a shop with shampons, shower gel, etc. Hope to return to Cuba and to Casa Antigua again ! …
We visited Casa Antiqua twice during our trio in Cuba. Already before the trip we got a lot of infomation and help from Horacio and Martha. Their help made our trip a proper holiday. We got help in reserving the casa particulars in the other towns as well as the all the taxi arrengments. Horacio gave us very good hints regarding what to see and where to visit in Havanna. His most interesting stories about Cuba opened us a new world, we got a new dimension to Cuba and to our trip as well, something that we will not forget. The breakfasts were great and the top was Horatzio palying piano, unforgettable. Thank you so much Martha and Horaztio!
Horacio's place is a very beautiful house. His wife and him are great people. I loved the long talks about Cuba with them during a cigar. He is a very helpful man and helped us around Havana. The home is very clean, the breakfast delicious and if Horacio plays the piano it is majestic. Surely, we will come back to this awesome place.
Our affair with the one and only Horacio has began long before oue arrival to Casa Antigua, as through emails he helped us plan our trip to Cuba and gave some valuable advices. As charming, nice and knowledgeable he appeared through his letters, he was even more in reality! The old colonial house itself was gorgeous and FULL of all sorts of magical and interesting historical stuff and perfectly located in a peaceful neighborhood. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfest was an absolute treat, with Horacio playing the piano on the background! Followed by a nice chat with a man who really know everything about Cuba, past and present. It was A magnificent oasis to wake up at and come back to while a visit to intensive Havana!
This was our second time staying with Horacio and Marta, and just like the last time we had a blast!!! Its less of a hotel and more like a friends house. You are looked after like family, its all so relaxed. Air con in all rooms, clean, amazing location, lovely breakfast, what more can you say! One of our group was from Liverpool so Horacio serenaded us on the piano whilst we ate breakfast with all the beatles hits and Cuban music too, the perfect start to every day. And with the bar next door, what more could you ask for? I urge anyone who is visiting Cuba to stay with these guys, you will not be disappointed!!
