The "Casa" of Hilda and Alejandro is one of the best places to stay in Havana. The room I rented is very comfortable, comparable to a good hotel room. It is a large room, ventilated, quiet, with bathroom. All the comfort I have in my house, had in their house.
The location is hard to beat: next to the Prado, the most important avenue of old Havana. Walking a few meters you can take a bus or taxi to any point in Havana.
The breakfast, prepared by Hilda's, is very, very good: fruit, yogurt, eggs, bread, etc. (the bologna sandwich and pineapple jelly are perfect). Hilda is an excellent cook.
Hilda and Alejandro are wonderful people, and have struggled the way they could to make my stay in your home as comfortable and pleasant as possible. They are very wise, honest and helpful, and always have nice hints of places to visit in Havana (and other cities of Cuba, where they know other Casas owners).
I've been in their house for 20 days, and now Hilda, Alejandro, Alejandro Jr. and Carelia (son and daughter-in-law) are like family.
