I can only agree with what the majority of people have written abouth the casa. The place is just wonderful, the attention to detail unique compared to the rest of the island.

Excellent place to stay in a local area unlike touristy old havana. we got to speak to local cubans in the area and had a wonderful time just roaming around the neighborhood. Armando spoke very good english and was very responsive. the casa has a lot of character with a beautiful outdoor area.

Beautiful Casa, great colonial interiors with a quirky and tasteful touch. Great artworks. Great service. Location is great, walking distance for the Malecón and nice bars and restaurants. Can't wait to smoke the cigar that Armando gave me! Would definitely recommend it to my friends.

I stayed at La Colonial 1861 for two nights. This house is quite unique and very memorable. The atmosphere is a little dark and a little provocative, which I personally really enjoyed.
