It is amazing that some Casa Particulares can offer a service level that is comparable with the best hotels. Amalia is the living proof. Great moder rooms with all comfort including minibar and airco. It had great service. You will feel very welcome. Dinner at the roof terrace with great view on Santa Clare was excellent.

I'm flabbergasted to see photos of these pretty bedrooms at Hostal Amalia - we were put in a room that felt like a prison cell (and so were another couple we met). There was nothing on the walls (pictures, curtains etc) just a horrid green coloured paint. The room was dark and dingy and the furniture was less than basic... More

We are a family of 6 and we stayed in 5 different Casa's while we were in Cuba and Hostal Amalia was the best accommodation both in terms of quality and value. Very central, really good rooms with en suite bathrooms and air conditioning, a lovely terrace and friendly and welcoming staff. We had a great dinner which was the... More

We booked this place for March 2016. The house is really in the citycenter. Clean and perfect rooms, nice roof terrace and a great breakfast have been the standard for our stay in the city. I recommend for a step in Santa Clara. The only negative point is that before leaving we asked to the owner a suggestion for a... More

We stayed in February 2016. The guys at the casa were very friendly and helpful. There are 7 rooms in total with 3 being on the top floor next to the roof terrace. Our room was on the reception floor. We love the spacious walk-in storage room and bathroom. It was excellent hot water from the shower. The room was... More

This is not really a hotel, but a "Casa Particular", although it is beginning to turn into one. It is situated in a narrow no through road in is a fairly old building with a roof terrace where one can sit, relax and have dinner and with views over the rooftops. This is a charming place to stay with pleasant... More

The guys working here are hilarious, welcoming, and so nice! Nice view, good rooms, yummy breakfast, pretty balcony, good location. We made no previous booking, and so were only able to stay one night, before the owner helped us find other accommodation. He offered that we could still come up and use the balcony, which was so nice. Genuine people,... More

Good location in Santa Clara: the room was clean and comfortable, and the owners found out a room for us even before check-in time (we arrived early by taxi from Remedios). Breakfast - not included in the price, it is the average price of 5 CUC per person - is a good Caribbean one, served on the Colonial terrace where... More

Amazing casa particular in Santa Clara. It is clean and has big comfortable bedrooms. Plus, it has a beautiful terrace upstairs. The owner is also great; he gave us good contacts for the casas in other cities. Therefore, this casa is a perfect option to stay in Santa Clara. The city is worth visiting, full of night life.
