“Great location in Havana Vieja”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We spent a total of 6 nights at Casa Obrapia (3 nights at the beginning and 3 nights at the end f our travels) and really loved the stylish decor, cleanliness, and location. They serve breakfast and dinner upon requests, but the options are very limited for vegetarians; we only ate (breakfast) once during our stay. We recommend paying a couple of more CUCs and go to the breakfast buffet at the Hotel Ingletera (5-10 minutes walk). The house itself is situated on a not the best looking street, but it's very safe (we've walked home late a few times and had no issues) and one block from Calle Obispo, the main vein of Havana Vieja. You're walking distance to everything!

Room Tip: We stayed in both room #2 and #3. Room #2 was smaller, but had a safe, while #3 had more space, it...

This stylish B&B is located on a stretch of Obrapia that looks pretty slummy, but the casa itself is impeccably clean and beautifully restored. There are several guest rooms, and their downside is that they're quite small (though with dramatic 17-foot ceilings!) However, you can hang out in the cozy salon (with a great balcony overlooking the street) on at one of the tables in the inner courtyard. The owner, Raydel, while friendly, didn't interact with us a lot. But he struck us as being both very professional and blessed with excellent taste in design.

It was the first „casa particular“ on our trip in cuba and we were very surprised about the „Casona Obrapia“. The stylish rooms (totally four) have all comfort you need: air-con, fan, ensuite-bathroom, safebox and a comfortable bed. The breakfast is very tasty, the dinners is the better option for dining then the restaurants. The main attractions are in walking-distance. Raydel and his staff are really nice and helpful, giving us great tips for day- and nightlife in Havana and also helped us with the planning of our trip and finding other great casas in Cuba. Don’t miss the bar Chanchullero (in walking-distance) for great Mojitos ;-)
Don’t think twice: La Casona Obrapia is a wonderful address. you can book it directly here: reservaobrapia405@gmail.com,

Travelled July 12, stayed there for 3 nights, brilliant location, very safe we walked at all hours of the night and never had any altercations. Raydel was so friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious. Rooms are nice and clean and have everything one would need.
Thanks so much for all your help!

The owner Raydel is my book of answer in Cuba. He's very resourceful and helpful and I've got things sorted out in Havana with his help when I needed it the most. The rooms are tastefully-furnished with all the comforts you can ask for and Alex is an amazing cook. Highly recommend it for staying in the old town of Havana.
