Villa Lou is situated in the vibrant coastal neighbourhood of Vedado; an authentic Cuban community within easy reach of all the major attractions of the old city. This privately owned typical creole style villa was built in 1936 and offers accommodation in spacious well lit rooms overlooking a small secluded tropical garden. The rooms are well furnished and equipped with air conditioning and full bathroom with hot water 24/7. The owner, Lourdes, resides at the property and is a most congenial host who is an interior designer by profession. The bedrooms and common areas are well designed with many interesting features and local objet d'art. There are a number of fine restaurants within walking distance and Lourdes will happily provide information and guidance to all the main historic and cultural sights that the city has to offer. Villa Lou is truly a home away from home where you are ensured a most memorable visit.

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.

Lou is the best host, her place is gorgeous, her garden a fairy tale, her hospitality exemplary and her breakfast unbeatable. Bus, restaurant and FAC (fabrica de arte cubano) are nearby. All in all a place to return to.

What an amazing place. An oasis in La Habana. Charming Casa, the host is like an old friend, cannot do enough for us even though we don’t speak any Spanish!! Beautiful house and gardens, comfy bed with AC. If you don’t come here you will have missed an opportunity to experience true Cuban hospitality!! Would love to come back.

Experience the real Havana by staying at this charming home in El Vedado. Lourdes, the hostess, is delightful and makes one feel at home upon arriving. The home is very clean with crisp white linens and a mini bar with fairly priced items. She prepares an amazing breakfast with some of the most delicious fruits - clearly the best mangoes I've ever had! Breakfast is served in her enchanting garden, where if you're lucky, you may be blessed with a hummingbird visit as we were. Old Havana & Miramar are a short taxi ride away. For art enthusiast, FAC (Fabrica de Arte Cubano) is a couple of blocks away. It's an eclectic experience with a cool vibe. There is also a good restaurant with a beautiful rooftop setting. Villa Lou is warm & captivating with it's original art display which makes it very inviting. Explore el Vedado's neighborhood and discover the locals, historical sites & troves of architecture. ENJOY We highly recommend Villa Lou!

This casa is situated in a residential area of Vedado within walking distance of Havana's famous Malecon. It is an ideal location where you can escape from the fumes of the vintage gas-guzzlers that choke the city street while being close enough to easily visit all of Havana's attractions. The National Theatre, Revolution Plaza and Hotel Nacional are within walking distance and there are many excellent restaurants in the neighbourhood The casa and its enclosed garden is an oasis in this hectic city and Lourdes, the owner, is the perfect hostess. We have stayed in this casa for a total of six weeks in the past four years and it really does feel like home to us. It is absolutely the best - comfortable, convenient and impeccably clean. It is a place to fall in love with and we can't wait to return.

We stayed at Villa Lou for 7 wonderful nights. Lourdes was the most amazing host we have ever stayed with. We organised everything via email with no issue. Lourdes had organised a taxi to pick us up from the airport. She made us feel at home the minute we arrived. Her breakfast was wonderful each morning with a great selection of fruits, juices, eggs, fresh bread and coffee. The room is a big and beautiful elegant room with an ensuite. With our limited Spanish and her limited english, we managed to communicate and she was very helpful in giving us some hints. If we asked for directions she would actually draw us a map. Nothing was too difficult for Lourdes. Villa Lou is in a great location in Vedado, not very far from Old Havana. Once you visit Havana you will understand how tiring the hustle and bustle of old Havana and the heat can be. It was so lovely to return home after a day in the city to the beautiful tranquility that Lourdes has created within her casa. We can't recommend this casa enough. She has a lovely house keeper Angela who was the cutest lady. We will definitely be coming back and staying with Lourdes at Villa Lou.

My husband and I came to Havana for the first time. We really enjoyed villa Lou and the owner Lourdes, is a lovely person. Her breakfast is enormous. Lots of fruit, fresh coffee, eggs, bread,.It is easy to take a cab from the main road some minutes walk away.(or Lourdes will call one for you) We would recommend this place to couples, friends, family. We do not speak spanish and Lourdes does not speak english but we managed to communicate anyway. The small garden/porch is an oases of peace. Which is nice after a long day in Havana Vieja or central.

My wife and I stayed with Lou for a couple of days and I can't recommend her and her little b&b enough. Lou is a fantastic person, with some very interesting stories to tell about her life and the history of the Island. Her home is lovely, in a part of Havana a little away from the center, and quaint. As people have mentioned before, her breakfast is outstanding and she is very helpful and knowledgable. We hope to visit again soon.

We stayed at Ms Lourdes casa in early february 2016. It was in many ways a fascinating experience. When we arrived we thought we would have the entire house on our own. That is not the case, as Lourdes and her wonderful mother lives in the back of the house. This was very joyful though. Lourdes was an extra ordinary help on our trip. She told us where to eat, what concerts to see, and what taxi to take. And she makes great breakfast! The house is located in a not so central part of Havanna yet it is somehow very cozy. You can easily take a cab down town. It is recomended that you speak at least basic Spanish. ¡Hasta luego Lourdes! Eskil con mi madre

I'm so happy we found Villa Lou! We just spent 5 nights with Lourdes and had a wonderful time. She made some great recommendations for dinner and entertainment for us whilst we were there- thank you! It was so nice waking up each morning to breakfast in her garden. My husband doesn't eat fruit but I couldn't get enough of the fresh juices she made, muy rico!!! The room was clean and had a big private bathroom and mini bar which was very nice. The room did get a bit hot at night on a couple of occasions but I think that was more a result of us not knowing how to use the AC properly and wasn't a big deal. I've already passed this casa on to another fellow traveler and will continue to do so. We can't wait to return :)
