No WiFi

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights. Overall we had a very poor experience mainly due to the fact there is no wifi. We knew coming here that there would be no mobile data so we were very reliant on having wifi. When we arrived we found the Casa had no wifi inside (we had to walk and queue 1 hr to buy wifi cards that can only be used in certain outdoor areas around the city). If we hadn't downloaded offline maps on Google in advance we'd have had a lot more issues. Our other issue with our stay was the noise. The rooms are in no way soundproof. The system for entering the Casa means you have to knock on the door or ring the doorbell, both of which woke us many times. One of the mornings we wanted a lie in but we could hear loads of noise from 7am. Everything else was great, friendly host, room was clean and comfortable and the location was great.

Excelente y cómodo lugar en una casona cubana con una atención increible por parte de sus propietarios. El desayuno estaba riquisimo con ingredientes típicos de la zona. El lugar ideal para insertarte en la vida de la Habana cercano a todo.
