#113 of 1,532 B&Bs / Inns in Havana
The exclusive and cozy Bed & Breakfast Villa Sofia was born in a fully restored house of Spanish colonial architecture built in 1940 in Havana's Municipality of Playa. Nearby but elusive to the Cuban epicenter, the B & B is located in the heart of the diplomatic residential area and business district of Havana, just a few steps from the famous Fifth Avenue. The style of Villa Sofia has its origin in an old Spanish mansion with patios cooled by the shade of its huge fruit trees. It offers to guests three spacious suites decorated in detail. In addition, the central patio is ideal for relaxing or enjoying a delicious breakfast. Library and entertainment room are also at your disposal. Villa Sofia is not a hotel, nor a "casa particular", it is a charming and fascinating experience, oriented to travelers, who want to experience more than just stay in Havana, and want really enjoy life. Havana is a unique, fascinating city of contrasts between history and modernity, decadence and revolution, with a powerful nature between land and sea, and with people, it is worth finding and meeting.

We were very happy with our choice of Villa Sofia – away from the hustle and bustle of Havana. While pricier than average, it has big rooms, two lovely courtyards, and owners who really work hard at making sure you have a great experience while there. They recommended some outstanding restaurants and took the time to help us get a better sense for the country at the beginning of our trip. Many thanks and best of luck to Yesenia and her family!

This is a cozy little place with two very nice patios, A/C and private bathroom in each room, rustic furniture adds to the Havana atmosphere. We had a wonderful four-day stay and enjoyed the breakfast that come at a very modest price. The hostess is very nice and goes out of her way to make your stay a pleasant one.

We booked the Villa in July 2017 for 7 nights in March 2018. We booked one room for my husband and I, and one for my elderly mother. We had high hopes - the Villa looked beautiful, had excellent reviews, and a hostess that spoke English. Unfortunately, 4 days before our arrival, our hostess informed us that she had to travel suddenly to Italy. Things did not go smoothly upon arrival - our taxi was more than 30 minutes late. Then, when we arrived at the Villa, we were not given one of the rooms we'd booked and my husband and I were given a smaller room with twin beds. Finally, the promised WiFi connection was not working. When I finally spoke with the hostess on the telephone, she was very apologetic and did give us a discount on our room for the entire 7 nights. On the 4th night, we were able to move into the original room we had booked. On a positive note, the Villa is attractive, the rooms comfortable, and the public space was acceptable. Breakfast was ample and delicious. The one dinner we ordered was bland but adequate. The woman left in charge did her best to fulfil the role of hostess. She was friendly and kept the rooms clean; we appreciated her efforts. However, she could not speak English and was unable to arrange a driver, tour trips, etc. Hopefully upon the hostess's return, service will return to the levels promised on their webpage.

Beautiful house, delightful garden and great people. Very clean and peaceful, therefore a fabulous place to take a break from the noise and heat of the city. Stayed three nights, Yesenia helped us plan the rest of our trip, but we were sad to leave. You have to take a taxi to get to Havana viega, 15 minutes or so, but you van find one or two restaurants at walking distance from the casa.
