Private house Hilda y Alejandro. With our family you will find the safety, privacy and friendly welcome you're looking for in Old Havana(Habana Vieja). We're conveniently located steps from the Malecon in Habana Vieja, a short walk from the most important historical sites as well as Vedado and other places of interest. For a great first impression of Havana's timeless charms and lively ambiance, we'd love to be your home away from home in Havana.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our welcome by Hilda and Alejandro was lovely, and Hilda's map and recommendations were so helpful. We spent two nights/two days in Old Havana and got to see and do everything we wanted to. The location of the house is brilliant, the breakfast was plentiful, varied and tasty, and the coffee to die for! Our room was spacious enough for what we wanted and needed and the en suite was modern. The room and ensuite were of a much better quality than what we had experienced in our Varadero Hotel. Next time we go to Havana we will be booking to stay here. I literally have no criticisms of this casa, the hosts or old havana.

Our stay at Hilda and Alejandro's was superb. The hosts are very welcoming, nice, always happy to help. The breakfast they prepared for us was delicious. Moreover, the location of their house is perfect for exploring both, old Havana as well as central areas. We would highly recommend the house.

Firstly the most important part of my experience was the kindness and helpfulness of my hosts, Hilda and Alejandro. Their flat is in a beautiful old building with original tiles and very high ceilings. Everything lovingly cared for. The bedroom was large and comfortable with a good bathroom. There was both a fan and air conditioning--both necessary in September in Havana. The breakfast is well worth paying for-- a feast of fruit juice, fresh fruit, coffee, eggs and toast. Knowing how difficult life is in Cuba it is a triumph to give guests an experience that matches the best anywhere in the world.

For us the Hilda y Alejandro's house has not been a simple accomodation but It has been a real home. Their advices are very useful,the breakfast Is Rich and very tasty,the room clean and confortabile and the location Is Amazing (between Havana vieja and centro Havana) but above all for Hilda and Alejandro, very special people.

Hilda and Alejandro are the kindest and most welcoming home and family in Habana Vieja. Since the moment of my arrival, I was explained the dual currency system in the country, tourist and historical locations and the best ways to move around the city so I could visit everything I longed. I hope to be back soon in their worming home and will surely miss them.

From the moment Hilda sat us down to provide an English explanation of the dual currency system in Cuba, Yoko and myself knew we were in capable and caring hands. She and Alejandro live in a Spanish era house in the old part of Havana, and as a guest you will share a part of their lives. If you are expecting 5 star facilities, with room service - go somewhere else! But, if you are looking to get an insight into how people in Cuba manage to navigate their way through a tightly controlled system, and still maintain a sense of humour, then this is the place for you! Our room was plain, but clean, and the sheets and towels in the ensuite bathroom were changed every day. The rooms have 5 metre ceilings, which beats any established hotel hands down!! There is also air conditioning and a fan, and Hilda places a jug of boiled water in the fridge in the rooms each day for visitors to drink. (You will need it after walking around in the 30 degree heat! We took a powdered version of a sports drink, which we mixed with the water to add flavour.) The room has a flat screened TV, but all the channels are in Spanish, including - strangely enough - CNN!) To access the internet you will need an internet card, purchasable at a telecommunications outlet close by. To convey the vast challenges Hilda faces presenting her guests with small comforts, and why it is such an experience to stay with her, I highlight the breakfast she provides each morning. In the absence of functioning supermarkets, each of the four of five varieties of fruit provided are purchased from separate stalls around the old town. And that means legwork! While out on a stroll towards the Malecon one day we bumped into Alejandro who was out sourcing food. When he recognised us he shouted "Taxi! taxi! (You will get the joke after walking in Old Havana for as little as 10 minutes!) The eggs are rationed - 5 per person, we were told - and Hilda engages in some old school communist bargaining and bartering to obtain enough to feed her guests. The bread is also rationed, and is on the dry side, but can be spiced up with the condiments that repeat visitors bring as presents when they visit. The coffee - which is really good - costs 14 CUC a pack...more than the amount she receives in her monthly pension payments!! Given the low level of the prices Hilda and Alejandro charge for the services they provide, Yoko and myself came to the conclusion that the enterprise is a labour of love, and we will gladly become repeaters on our next visit!

Hilda and Alejandro were the most friendliest and helpful hosts we’ve stayed with on any of our vacations, regardless of which country we’ve traveled to. They both went above and beyond to help us out with any of our requests including getting a birthday cake for my wife and driving us to the airport in the early hours of the morning. The location of their casa was within easy walking distance to all the places we wanted to visit in old Havana. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. They made our trip memorable.
