“The best place, the best family!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

When we came to l'Havana we wanted to spend only the first night in this Casa Particular. After seeing the amazing house, rooms, patio and above all, after spending some time with Belkis and Jevier, we fell in love with this place. We spent here all our time in the city. The food is just great and talking to Belkis and Jevier is the best way to learn about Cuba, L'Havana and people's everyday life. the hose is extremely clean and comfortable. Kevin and Claudia, their kids, are adorable and a nice addition to the atmosphere!
Stay here, you won't regret it, guaranteed!

We spent 4 nights in this beautiful casa particular, located in the centre of Habana Vieja, 5 mins walking for any interesting top sights of the city. Best location ever!!!
Belkis and Jeiver, with their beautiful children Claudia (11 years) and Kevin (2) warmly welcomed us in their casa as we were part of the family.
Always kind and polite, available for any need we may have, they have been a great example of a nice Cuban family.
The house is in the first floor of a colonial building, with very spacious and clean rooms (all with private bathroom), beautiful patio where we relaxed and we had our gorgeous breakfast and dinners. Belkis is an amazing chef!!! Jeiver has a coco taxi and he will be able to bring you wherever you want with reasonable prices (compared to the coco taxi you find on the street).
We miss them already and we are already planning another trip in Cuba, booking with them already! We have a family in La Habana now :)
Book in advance as this place is understandably popular!

We have stayed for 5 nights in Havana in November 2012.
The house is very well located, just few minutes away from the touristic sites. The area is very safe, no surprises.
The rooms are very clean and cleaned every day.
The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits and fruit juice.
Belkis and Jevier (the hosts) are very nice and helpful. They gave us tips about what to visit and what to avoid in Havana.
I highly recommend it for a visit if you want to experience some authentic Cuba.
Thank you
Manuela

I stayed with Belkis & Jeiver for 2 nights in late October, 2012. They were extremely friendly, helpful & accommodating. They said that they didn't mind what time of night I returned & they would be happy to get out of bed & let me in. And they were true to their word.
The casa is very clean, comfortable & well-kept. I had breakfast there both days & the food was superb. It was plentiful & well-presented. The service was fast & they were prepared to serve me no matter what time I got up. This would be a great casa for a family too, as Belkis & Jeiver have 2 young & very well-behaved children of their own.
The casa's location near Plaza Cristo in Old Havana is within walking distance of just about everything you might want to see.
I highly recommend this place & when I return to Havana this is where you will find me.

At first, my wife and I were intending to stay at Casa Lourdes in Havana but they were fully booked. They recommended Casa Cristo and we are grateful for this is one good place. We stayed there our first two days and the last day of our two-week trip in Cuba. Let me begin with the owners: Belkys & Javier are an adorable couple, very sympathetic, always with a sincere smile. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and there was air conditioning. We had our breakfasts at the casa in the classic, delicious Cuban style with lots of fresh fruit and fruit juice (and many other things). At this point, I have a tip for first-time travellers to Cuba: If you stay at casas, eat at least one full meal in every place you stay. Chances are, you will choose to eat more in house instead of at the restaurants. Most casa particular owners are really good cooks and the Cuban cuisine is fantastic. Back to Casa Cristo: The house is a colonial beauty. The high ceilings, the floors, the ceramic tiles on the walls, the old furniture, the plants in the hall, the ornaments on the ceilings... These all create a unique setting. Truly a wonderful place to start getting the feel of Cuba. The casa's location is excellent. Almost any place you would like to see in Havana is at walking distance. We had rented a car and took it out from the parking lot only once just to drive down Malecon. I cannot recall anything unpleasant about our stay there. And back to the hosts; they always gave good advice. Later in our trip, we met some casa owners trying to sell some extras such as cigars or paintings to us, which might be slightly disturbing at times. No such thing happened here. All the best to Belkys and Javier. We hope to see them again.

My family and I were in Cuba for 10 days. We spent 6 days with Belkis and Jeiver at their beautiful house in downtown Havana. The house is strategically located. The service is amazing. The rooms are spotless clean. Trip advice and connections to other services such as transportation and accommodations in other houses was excellent. Forever grateful!
