Casa El Mirador was the first casa particular we stayed in and we found it very pleasant. It is located in central Havana on San Rafael street close to many nice sights of the city. It is an amazing 15 min walk through genuine Havana residential-blocks to the Capitolio-area. And another 10 min walk to old Havana. It is also close to Vedadowith Habana Libre and Hotel Nacional. Our room was cozy and clean. We had a clean private bathroom with hot water. We also had a private balcony overlooking the city life.
When arriving, we were welcomed by english-speaking owner Julio who made us amazing pineapple juice. The breakfast was really nice with fresh fruit, cuban coffee, eggs, fruit-juice and bread. Julio gave us advice about the city and sights worth-seeing and told us how to how to get there. He also helped us order a taxi when leaving Havana.
We had a lovely stay in Casa El Mirador and we recommend this casa to anyone going to Havana. It really is amazing value and you won't regret staying here.
