We stayed at this house for three nights even though we were a bit apprehensive about staying at a Casa particular. I'm glad we did. The room had a.c. a fan and hot water. The place is quiet and you can hide out without being bothered or interact with the owner and staff. The breakfast was good, it included lots of fruit and eggs with fried bananas. The house is about 10 blocks from tourist attractions such as central park, bus tour, main streets... it's walkable and you get to see cubans going about their normal daily life not around by tourists... There's a store on Neptuno called El Bodegón that sells 1.5 L of bottled water for 1 peso... the cheapest you'll find anywhere!!
