“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

Excellent place to stay. Amazing view on the beautiful Convento Santa Clara and La Habana Vieja from the balcony, with a Cubata! Central and perfect to discover the old Havana.
The hosts are extremely nice, make you feel like home.
It's clean, quiet and well maintained.
You can also have diner there.
You won't regret it.

We have been in this Casa Cuba in January. We have been very well received by Leticia, the manager of the house, and Michael. They are really hospitable. The house has few rooms and they are very clean. They also prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner on request. It is excellently located in La Habana Vieja.

I will return. I can’t get much better. Enjoy!

Location Location Location… and safe too. The apartment is located only one block away from the Old Place (Plaza Vieja). The building is to be found beside a street enlargement with good lighting even in the middle on the night. You’ll feel safe at all times. The view from the living room is amaaaazing, looking over the other surrounding buildings!

The apartment is recently painted and impeccably clean:
- Beds and sofa are all new and comfortable.
- Bathrooms: All renovated, clean, with hot water. Two tourist bedrooms share one bathroom. For the third room, you must share with Leticia. There are plans to build a bath room for each room.
- Stuff: private fridge filled with water bottles, beers and juice (cheap but not free), tv, air conditioning.
- Breakfasts: no be negotiated prior to arriving (little extra)

Leticia, the owner of the apartment, moved from Santa Clara to Havana in the summer of 2011. She shares the apartment with one son (full time student). Her daughter is present day time to help with house guests but lives on her own.

There is a family member in the apartment at all times. You can come in and out in the middle of the night. They are flexible, smiley, funny and super nice. Leticia keeps the key of the apartment to herself & family so there are no lost keys here and there.

In total I very much enjoyed my stay at the Hostal Casa Cuba owned by Leticia.
Bedroom and bath room were both clean, breakfast was delicious (fruits, guave juice, egg, bread, honey, coffee - usual Cuban breakfast). The hostal is very well located in La Habana Vieja, the 4 main squares and El Prado are within easy reach (walking distance). What I liked most of all were the people: Leticia, her daughter and son in law are so charming, and caring. The place is highly recommended!

We had been travelling around Cuba for a week and had stayed in a different casa particular in Havana Vieja (Old Havana) for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip. It was about 8 blocks past Plaza Vieja (toward the train station) and not in the greatest area of Havana (the walk was a bit dodgy!). We wanted to return to Havana for one night at the end of the trip but it was high season and most casas were already booked. We asked around and finally found Leticia's place! What a fantastic family! Leticia is like a mom we always wanted to have! We met Geraldine (Leticia's daughter) and Michel (Geraldine's husband), who were so very professional and incredibly friendly. This house is on the 3rd floor with lots of stairs, but don't fret! Michel had no trouble taking our bags up and down the stairs in no time! And the best part is that this casa offers a fabulous view of the convent and old Havana (and the Capitolio of course!) Michel made us a delicious breakfast in the morning of papaya, oranges, pineapple, FRESH FRESH bread, omelettes, amazing coffee and, my favourite: fresh jugo de guayaba (guava juice)! They gave us so much of their time, wanting to chat about our lives and tell us about theirs, and gave us some good tips about the city of Havana. This casa is right on Calle Cuba, 2 blocks from the Plaza Vieja and in a perfect area to wander around the streets of Old Havana. It's right opposite the Santa Clara Convent, so it's very easy to find and the taxis can easily locate it. The building was constructed in the early 1900s and is absolutely beautiful to look at! What makes this casa stand out from the others is the friendliness of the family who live there. I've stayed at many casas particulares in Santa Clara, Trinidad, Vinales and Havana, but this one was exceptional because of Leticia, Geraldine and Michel. In Havana, you really need to be selective when choosing a place to stay, but if you choose this casa, you will have a lovely experience within those walls!

Room Tip: Both rooms are equally lovely, but the first room as you walk in has a little more privacy, as the d...
