“friendly place, excellent value for money”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

I can definitely recommend this B&B. It is just better than most of the others because of the friendly owners. They are very helpfull, and make an effort to answer all your question and help you out as much as possible. The room is large, with a private bedroom, airconditioning and safe. Also it is cleaned daily and was spotless. There is no noise from the street
The location is good, short walking distance from all the big sights.
In short, i came her because of tripadvisor and now I am leaving a review here :-) everything said here is true, it is a good idea to book there.

My husband and I stayed with Yadilis and Joel for three nights (our first two nights in Cuba and our last night in Cuba). Their home is clean and beautiful with high ceilings, bright colors, and a wonderful terrace in a great location in Central/Old Havana. We stayed in two different rooms (one included one double/queen bed and the other included two twin beds pushed together). Each room had a private bathroom (with hot water), TV, fridges (stocked with water and beer) and a safe.

Yadilis and Joel were extremely helpful and hospitable hosts, and they are amazing cooks! Their breakfasts were huge - fresh, seasonal fruit, bread and butter, tomatoes, eggs, ham, freshly squeezed juice, coffee, and more for only $4/person. We only had dinner one of the nights at the casa and I wish we ate there more. They prepared an amazing feast with salad, rice and beans, and perfectly cooked lobster for only $10/person. I can't even imagine the price of an equivalent meal in the US.

They assisted us in confirming our reservation at our next casa, and they provided a map for us to use to navigate around Havana. Luckily, their home is an amazing location where you can easily walk to any of the top sights in Old Havana and Central Havana.

I would strongly recommend this casa to anyone staying in Havana. Thank you so much again, Yadilis and Joel!!

Myself and my girlfriend booked this beautiful Casa for the first 2 days of our trip to Cuba and what a great way to start. There are 4 double bedrooms with en suites, 2 modern rooms and 2 traditional tall ceiling rooms. They are all so well looked after as is the rest of the Casa. When we were there in january and Joel was in the middle of making a new roof terrace for to have breakfast and dinner on! Great views over all of Havana.
Now the people, we found Cubans to be very friendly anyway but this lovely coupe, Joel y Yadilis, really do go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Their cooking (both breakfast and dinner) is plentiful and delicious, they wash your clothes quickly, you can use their phone to call anywhere in Cuba and they always help find another casa for your travels.

The location is also a big bonus, it is a 5 minute walk to both the Malacon and Parque Central, and the area itself feels very safe.

We enjoyed our first couple of day there that on our return leg we went back for 4 days!

The other people we met at the casa were also very nice and usually shared a few Bucanero's up on the terrace!

A very lovely family and i would strongly recommend this casa for your travels.

Much love, Henry & Liz

I booked this purely by chance when looking on trip advisor for hotel ratings in Havana. It was number 1 at the time of booking and all I can say is the other two must be out of this world. Firstly I would say that the star rating in Cuba overall is different to those found in Europe and USA etc. 5 stars over there, especially in Havana is probably closer to 3, maybe 4. The bathrooms in the hotels are quite small and there is no WIFI anywhere so if you need to access your internet for emails etc, print them all off before you go, I wrote all the places I wanted to visit in a diary, really glad I did. The hosts in this casa are so helpful, wherever we wanted to go they knew the cheapest or best way to go about it and even suggested places we might like. We had a map, don't buy it at the airport, they are cheaper from the gift shops, and from where the casa is located you can walk to most of the attractions. We had the smallest room with twin beds which was quite good fun, it's been a long time since we have tied the legs together! There's a great roof terrace to sit and have a drink and a cigar. We ate breakfast every morning at the casa which set us up nicely for the day and ate dinner twice which was delicious and there was plenty of it. Whilst out and about our room was cleaned every day so it was spotless for our return. The casa is in Old Havana but the taxi's are cheap if you want to go further afield. It was suggested that we went to a beach called Santa Clara and it cost 10 CUCs, it was where the whole family went. It exceeded expections, we had chicken cooked on the beach and enjoyed a cuba libra whilst plunging our feet into the warm white powdery sand. Having been to Cuba I would recommend that if you are going to Havana and Veradaro you visit Havana first as there is so much to do and see and Veradaro is more of a tourist beach holiday area where you just chill. Just be aware that you have to pay for anything you have out of the fridge, we emptied it, so remember to have enough currency to pay for it a the end of your stay! PS...the journey through Havana is a bit worrying but when you get to your destination you will be pleasantly surprised how safe it is.

My friend and I just spent 6 nights at Yadilis and Joel's home and it was wonderful. A haven of sanity in Havana's insanity in the heart of Habana Centro. The room was absolutely beautiful and so clean you could eat off the floor. Yadilis made us great breakfasts and 3 yummy dinners that were better than most of the restaurants we tried. The family itself is very friendly and accomodating, a home away from home.
I give it top marks and would recommend it to everyone

Room Tip: ask for the top floor corner room

We had four fantastic days in this casa. Yadillis and Joel are very kind and helpful, the food they cook are excellent and the rooms are nice and very clean. The location is perfect too - very near to Vieja Havana. I can really recommend this place - it is quite sure, that I ever returns to Havana I will stay here.
