“Excellent stay in Havana Centre”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Just one block away from the famous Paseo del Prado, the "Champs Elysees of Havana in the late 50's", this casa is very well situated in the centre of the city.

We couldn't have made a better choice for our first night in a casa particular in Cuba! Hilda and Alejandro gave us a very warm welcome and gave us all the right tips to make our visit in Cuba a real success.

While staying at the casa of Hilda and Alejandro we had a quiet and clean room, a very good breakfast with a lot of fresh fruits and even the dinner with a nice Cuban cigar (Alejandro is to be considered a specialist, a part of all the vendors in the streets of Havana) with a nice glass of Ron is to be recommended.

If we would return to Havana one day, we would not hesitate one second to return to this house.

Tom

Room Tip: If you travel with 2 couples, the neighbor's room is also to be recommend.

We spent 3 nights in this Casa and from the first day on we felt like part of the family. Those were our first three nights of our Cuba roundtrip and we could not have imagined a better start for our holidays. Hilda gave us all the information necessary for the next 3 weeks. She helped us organize our roundtrip, gave recommendations and made reservations for us. But more important, she told us everything we needed to know about the cuban life, culture, history, food and prices. In contrast to many other casas Hilda and Alejandro often offered us free juices and coffee without charging any of them.

But also the rest of the family was always welcoming and helpful. Alexandro gave us an introduction into Cuban cigarrs and also explained us how to recognize good ones (a very important information given the large number of people in the streets who wanted to sell us cigars). Hilda and Alexandro's son (also calles Alexandro) helped us pick up our rented car and gave us a tour of Havana on our first day. This way we immediately knew how to get around and got a wonderful overview of the city.

The house is very nice and in a very central location. Hilda and Alexandro only rent out one room, which is large, clean and well furnished. We have to admit though that we enjoyed chatting with the family as much that we barely spent time in our room but rather in the dining room. The house also has a nice patio and a living room but the most comfortable place for us was the dining room.

We warmly recommend this casa and would definitely stay there again.

I was staying at casa Hilda with my friend for 2 nights and we felt really like at home there. The family is very, very hospitable and we had great and interesting discussions with Alejandro and hilda. Besides of the very good meals that Hilda cooked for us, I have to mention the very nice colonial building and very central location.
To make it short: we had a great time at Casa Hilda y Alejandro and it felt like a second home :)
Hilda y Alejandro: Muchisimas gracias por su hospitalidad y las conversaciones divertidas que tuvimos!!!!!
Ojalá podamos vernos otra vez ;) ya tengo ganas de volver a Cuba!
un abrazo!

We had a lovely time at casa Hilda y Alejandro! They are very kind, hospitable, caring en sweet. We learned a lot about Cuba, Cuban lifestye and Cuban history.
The room is perfect and Hilda's breakfast was amazing: toast, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit and homemade marmelade. The location is perfect: near the Malecon and the Prado. They gave us a map of Havana Vieja and pointed out several bars, restaurants, squares, shops, cafe's and musea.

We had a lovely time!!

This was our first trip to Cuba and we did not have much time to prepare it in advance. But all that was no problem, as we were warmly welcomed by Hilda and her family. We felt at home immediately and received tons of tips and inside information which made not only our stay in havana but also in the rest of Cuba, a memorable vacation. The room is very clean, all modern day comfort is present. Hilda's breakfast is a reason to get out of bed, you must try her pineapple marmalade! This family is very hospital and will help you find your way in Cuba, which is not always as easy for us foreigners. This family helped us plan our trip in the rest of Cuba. They are kind, warm, friendly and trustworthy people and they will make sure your stay in Havana is one to remember. After a trip round cuba we ended our vacation in Havana and stayed for a second time with Hilde y Alejandro.Hilda, Alejandro Sr and Jr and Corelia entered our lives and our harts par siempre!

Hilda and Alehandro a great hosts. They were very helpful already before our comming in Cuba when they helped us to find a casa in another town. Asking her for help with casas in other cities you can be sure that she advises only good casas, as she always asks tourists about their experiences there. Then when we found that contacts of our casa in next city are not correct, Hilda made impossible and found right phone numbers through some her friends. She is always ready to give some advice, to tell some interesting stories about Cuba and her family.
Food was very good, room is also nice in an old colonial house with amazing high floors, with some furniture and nice private bathroom. Location is ideal for tourists, especially for the first trip, as all main attractions are easy to get by foot.
If you choose this casa, send to this nice couple many regards from Maria from Russia!

Hilda and Alejandro are super friendly - they don't speak much English, but with a dictionary and some basic Spanish, we were mutually intelligible. Hilda is an amazing cook! I'm going to miss her breakfast :) The house is beautiful and steps away from old Havana - very convenient, and within walking distance of just about all major museums and attractions. Hilda was very helpful as well, suggesting activities to us, and also assisting us with phone calls in Spanish. She also arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport, which was wonderful after the long flight. The house itself is old, but well kept and clean. If we go back, we're definitely staying here again!
