“Great Casa in Matanzas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Went for cycling trip to Cuba, stayed in this beautiful Casa in Matanzas.
Great food, all smiles, great rhum.
Comfortable and nice rooms, clean.
The owner was also very helpful (and seemed resourceful) in helping us find a taxi for 4 people and 4 bikes, which had been quite a challenge before.
I would absolutely recommend staying there.
Thanks again.

We stayed for 3 nights at Idael and Dania's and can recommend this casa with no reservations to anyone wishing to visit Maranzas. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. There was a mini-fridge with reasonably priced drinks, near new ensuite and a lovely private terrace where one could sit and read or simply enjoy the warm Cuban evenings. We had breakfast at the house every day and that was excellent value for money. And Idael and Dania cooked a Cuban specialty for us on the last day (salted fish dish) and that was absolutely delicious. Idael can drive you for a small fee to the Bellamar cave (a must see attraction in this area) and to a nearby river park. If you wish to dine out, closeby restaurant Arrebato was fantastic (both service and food) as well as quite cheap.

We had a really great stay at the casa of Dania y Idael. They are very lovely and helpful people that summed up in a very hospitable stay. Breakfast and dinner have been one of the best within our trip. Because of a lack of activities in and around of matanzas Idael took us to the baseball match in the evening and we really enjoyed this evening. If you have any questions or need something just ask them and they will help you immediately.
The rooms and the loggia for breakfast and dinner are very clean and comfortable. Compared to other casas the shower and water pressure are european standard :-)
We definitely recommend the casa of Dania y Idael and would always stop by for funny stay and baseball match ;-)

We spent two nights at house of Idael y Dania. They are very friendly people who have smiles on their faces all the time. The atmosphere is very positive.

The house is very clean and you can be sure that you will feel very welcomed at their place. Dania is the queen of the kitchen. The dinner (and also breakfast) was absolutely fantastic. She is able to prepare everything what you can imagine. Idael will recommend you beautiful places near Matanzas that you can visit.

The house is beautiful with wonderful garden with banana trees and with big terrace where the dinner and breakfast are served.

I would definitely recommend this house to everyone :).

What I liked the most was the English-speaking, very helpful casa owners, who made it much easier to plan our short stay in Matanzas, as well as the further travel by train to Havana. The rooms and their prices were ok, breakfast slightly worse comparing to the casas in other cities. Unfortunately I didn't like the location. Also the street was quite noisy, which for me personally was not a problem, yet for my parents it was.

Idael P, Propietario at Casa Hostal Idael & Dania, responded to this review, February 23, 2014
Google Translation
Nos caracterizamos por ofrecer uno de los mejores desayunos de casas particulares con un variado menú del tipo Continental, frutas variadas, pan y mantequilla, jamón viking, queso gouda, café, leche y te, jugo natural, huevos y variados dulces en almíbar y mermeladas no puede ser un desayuno “un poco peor”, las fotos aquí publicadas por otros huéspedes hablan por sí solas. Dormir con las ventanas abiertas hace inevitable sentir el despertar de la ciudad, pero las habitaciones están habilitadas con aire acondicionado y ventilador, o sea pueden cerrarlas y acondicionarlas. Respetamos su opinión y consideramos que debe ser cuidadoso a la hora de escoger casas particulares pues esta modalidad de turismo le ofrece una Cuba tal como es, alegre, pintoresca y ruidosa, llena de música y pregones,con el canto de las aves armonizando nuestra hospitalidad. Existen hoteles ubicados en Polos Turísticos en zonas aisladas del país con ambientes más tranquilos para satisfacer esos gustos. Agradecemos su tiempo y sentimos que a pesar de nuestro empeño usted nos haya evaluado en tal condición.
Seguiremos trabajando por lograr un servicio de excelencia y hacer de nuestro Hostal uno de los destinos turísticos más atractivos de nuestra ciudad.

This place is a hidden gem, located in a seemingly rundown neighborhood of a really old town, this house is so well kept it amazes me. Our room was very comfortable, with air conditioning, and a balcony on the front.

Room Tip: The front room is excellent.

Higly recomended "casa".
We traveled around whole Cuba island and noticed that the hostal Idael and Dania is the best place to stay we found.

Very recommend to taste offered fish dishes and especially fish under salt cover in their house!

Best regards,
Evgeny

Room Tip: All four numbers are good. However should be noticed that two of them have shared bathroom.
