Real genuine small business service
Absolutely fabulous family run hotel. It's a nice central location making it easy to get to many of the sites and great restaurants in the neighbourhood. We had to leave a day early because we were there when the Covid19 crisis was just starting. They were very understanding and accommodating about our early departure. As well, my wife has a pineapple allergy and even though it was a different kitchen and serving staff every day, they clearly talk to each other as the prepared fruit plate for each breakfast after telling them the first morning didn't have pineapple. If we get back to Havana in the future, this will be our first choice for a place to stay!

Superb place to stay
Loved our stay here - as with much of old Havana the surroundings may seem run down but inside this casa is just wonderful and a great place to stay. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to the suite and this just meant that our stay could not have been any better. The service was excellent, the breakfast fresh and well prepared and the location set us right in the heart of the action.
