Hostal Casa Richard
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stayed at Casa Richard for three nights in August 2012. As other reviewers have said in their comments, Richard has two casas in the same street, an older one with two rooms and a new colonial house. We stayed at latter.

The colonial house has been restored following really high standards. The result is that despite being an old building, the casa looks far more modern and comfortable that any other casas we saw in Cuba. This is thanks to Richard's continuous efforts to improve the house.

Our room was luminous, spacious and clean with high wooded ceilings, a private bathroom and air conditioning. It was accessed through a lovely patio at the back of the house. It was very quiet at all times, despite being very close to the town's main square.

Another high point is that the food served at this house was the best we had in Cuba, and it was great having breakfast and dinner outdoors at the patio.

The house has only one room at the moment, but by the end of the year it should be extended with a larger patio and two additional patio rooms. By then it will definitely be the best casa to stay in Remedios, if it's not already.

Richard is very helpful and friendly. Although he didn't have a room in the main casa, there are two more rooms in his mother's house, so we stayed there. She is a fantastic woman who made us feel so at home! The rooms were clean. 1 had a double bed and a single, and one had two small double beds, both with en-suits. Breakfast was served on the patio and the best that we had eaten in Cuba, with home made biscuits and an abundance of fruit, yoghurt, meats, cheese, breads... Very central location. Richard's Mum acts as the security guard so there is no need for a key to the house or to your rooms, because she is always around to let you in. In fact, she's so welcoming, she sits in front of the T.V. next to the door and greets you as you walk in. Tiny language barrier, but Richard speaks a bit of English. Car parking around the corner in a gated lot. 4 CUC for 2 nights and they cleaned the car every night!

Room Tip: Richard's casa also looked newly refurbished and beautiful. Eat there if you can, because the a...

We also stayed in Richard's mum's house a block away from Richard's. The 4 of us had 2 rooms there and his mum was lovely, dispite the language barrier, always giggling! Breakfast was great, and as usual the portions in cuba were massive. We had dinner twice at Richard's and both times it was really tasty. Richard is a great host, and drew us a map to the beaches and cayos... a great casa if you want a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and a great base to explore the beaches from...

Richard's place is highly recommended not only for being in the center and just two blocks from the plaza (with casa de la musica, catedral) and its newly renovated rooms and patio (renovated in the traditional style that is, so the appearance is cosy and warm with a luxurious bathroom) but most of all for its owner: Richard is always ready to draw you a helpful map for whatever place you want to visit and sits with his guests in the patio in the evenings for a good moonlight talk. The food was delicious and plentiful. In July 2012 there was only one guestroom in his house, so two of us had to sleep over at his Mom's place a block away, which was also quite cute. By December there will be two more rooms off Richard's patio, the building was going on discretely while we visited and the place will be still more amazing!

I have only been at Richards for a short time (3nights) but i wont forget how kind and helpful both him and his mother were for me. I truly felt at home. The room was very big, beds comfortable and the A/C unit works well.

The food was excellent also!

I highly recommend this casa particular and will most certainly return there at some stage.

Casa Richard is a fabulous place to stay in Remedios. Clean rooms, great bathroom and lovely patio. Great breakfasts and you can order dinner if you want to eat in the Casa - huge amounts of food. The Casa at No 54 is very new just completed in December 2011. Well worth coming to Remedios to stay here and soak up the atmosphere of Cuba without too many tourists. Richard and staff are very helpful and Richard speaks a little English. If Casa´s where star rated this one would surely get a 5.

We stayed 2 nights in Richard Hostal and had a very confortable experience
The room is nice, all renovated and the hostal is a very charming tipical colonial house
Richard has put a lot of energy and attention to details. The patio where you can take breakfast and dinner is very romantic
The food was not only excellent but also served with great attention to presentation
This casa particular combines the confort of the best hotel with the personalized welcome of a B&B
