I stayed in the red room, but saw all of them. I absolutely loved this property. It captured the charm and passion of Cuba; both in its look and feel and in its location. Tall framed wooden doors, delicately decorated floor tiles, tasteful pictures hanging on the walls and the sights and sounds of Cuba on the door step. The hosts were also so very accommodating. They graciously met every need. I would stay here again every time. Thanks for making Cuba that much more special for me. Buyi

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at La Gargola Guesthouse. Well located, it has clean air-conditioned en suite rooms with charm and character. (The artwork on the walls was the best I have seen in any hotel or guesthouse.) The two managers, Alex and Serguei, are really nice friendly guys who will go out of their way to help you get the most out of your stay in Havana. They speak excellent English but also spent time helping me improve my Spanish. And a good breakfast included.

We spent four nights at this guest house and I can highly recommend it. The air-conditioned rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and en-suit bathroom. Breakfast is wonderful home cooking and plentiful. The location in old Havanah is perfect for exploration on foot. The staff speak excellent English, are very friendly and accommodating.
