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.

Fab location in Habana vieja. Lovely freezing cold room - it was very very hot in August - spotlessly clean, lovely crisp linen, a window, fridge to keep the cold bottled water you can buy there - no need to cart it back from shops, ensuite bathroom, breakfast upstairs on a beautiful balcony with wrought iron railings overlooking the street, delicious breakfast, just round the corner from street vendors wit barrows selling the bets mangoes, avocados and bananas you have ever tasted. At the end of a long day walking about, Carmen was always there with a welcome smile and long glass of cold mango juice. But the BEST part: we had not made any reservations having never been to Cuba before, or S America and we did not want to be stuck to a rigid structure, but we were unsure about transport, internet in Cuba is not very abundant and telephoning expensive from mobiles. So we sat with out map and guideboks, chose the places we wanted to go to and wrote them on a list for Carmen. By the time we had come back from dinner, Carmen had telephoned 'mi amiga' here and 'mi amiga' there and she had boked us up the casas and all the transports in the fantastic cars. We did not have to lift a finger and all the casas she recommended were fab, friendly, clean and helpful. we stayed in total about 10 days going away and returning before the next part of out trip.

William and Carmen were fantastic! My friends and I needed last minute accommodations, and they were incredibly helpful. Clean/quiet rooms, great location, they were both super friendly, couldn't ask for more.

We stayed at Carmen and William for 1 night in November. Without reservation the room was ready for us to sleep in. Very very nice people, they are the kindest. We could store our luggage there, for half a day before we left for the airport. Very convenient. I would recommend staying with William and Carmen to anyone.

While traveling in Cuba with my fiancé, we found William and Carmen's casa by chance and the minute we entered their house we felt at home. They are both genuinely welcoming and very interesting to talk to. We had very long conversations with them and they gave us great tips for our trip. The breakfast is good and fresh, we stayed in both rooms and they were very clean. The location is also perfect, right in the middle of the old Havana. Very easy to go around by foot, day and night. After our tour we came back to their place for our last night. Highly recommended!!!

I stayed here with my partner and we had such a nice time staying in William and Carmen's casa and were so glad we found it (by accident!) William and Carmen are genuinely lovely people and they were by far the most welcoming hosts we encountered - our conversations with William over a bottle of wine have become one of the favourite memories of the trip. The casa is in a perfect central location for exploring Habana Vieja, and the atmosphere in home is lovely and relaxed. The rooms were spacious and clean with towels and bedding provided and an ensuite bathroom. William and Carmen (who speaks really good English) were very caring, accommodating and helpful with anything we needed – they recommend somewhere to stay in Cienfuegos and Trinidad too which were both brilliant. The breakfast was great too – would absolutely recommend this place in Havana!

I stayed in William and Carmen's house for a total of 9 nights during my stay in Havana. The house and room that i was in were very clean, maintained throughout my stay. William and Carmen are friendly, caring and give advice useful to visitors. Carmen speaks good english and they are both very positive and welcoming. I can only recommend their home.

We were welcomed by the owners at midnight due to our delayed flight. Breakfast was great, the rooms comfortable (one minus: the room downstairs had a strange smell). Nice owners, location is great in the heart of Old Havana.

This was our first and then final Casa in a 3 week trip to Cuba and by far the best. I loved sitting, speaking to them both who were so generous, welcoming us in with coffee and cake and good conversation. Like our Cuban parents! Amazing breakfast and fun and interesting so happy yo help out. Lo mejor de todas nuestras casas! Lo mejor Pareja, tan generosa, cariñosa y interesante! Una casa muy cómoda, limpia, y el desayuno rico! No puedo imaginar una pareja mejor :) gracias!

William and Carmen offer you a fantastic Casa. The rooms are very quiet and clean. You get definately the best breakfast in town. They help you to organise everything and they have great tips what to do in Havanna. But most important, the couple is so sympatic and give you ideas how the cubans live and this is the main reason to come and live in a Casa: because of the people you meet! Thanks a lot for the great stay! We would always come back!
