The host, Jorge, was very friendly and helpful. My room could sleep three, with an en suite bathroom. Breakfast was an optional extra, which I took, and found to be generous. Internet access was available on request, for 1 hour per day. I had a set of keys and could come and go as I wished. The house is a few steps away from the ocean (northern) end of the Prado. The Capitolio at the other end is about 10 minutes' walk away. There are options for lunch and dinner within easy reach. The Obispo in Old Havana runs parallel to the Prado and is about three streets away. The rate (incl. optional extra breakfast) was modest.
The location of the house is perfect. Almost all of the hotspots in Havana are in walking distance of the house. The room was clean and spacious. The free WiFi was a nice extra. But the most important thing: Jorge was a really good host. He helped me with finding good restaurant, stores, things to do, booking taxi’s. He also told me a lot about the Cuban culture. It was one of the best stays I experienced in Cuba!
If you think about staying in Havana, be sure to ask Jorge! You won't regret it at all, this guy speaks excellent English, helps you navigate the city, can book an airport transfer. The room is large with all the amenities, and most importantly, it is quite inexpensive! P.S. free internet for 1 hour!!!
Staying at Jorge’s was brilliant. His house very easy to find S it is located at the end of Paseo del Prado (beautiful 10 min walk from the Cathedral square) and just 2 min walk from Malecon. The room was very clean and quiet, despite the fact that the house is located in a touristic area. Jorge was very helpful with arranging taxis both to his house as well as with arranging transportation to the Airport. He also gave us good tips on coffee shops/ discos etc.
Jorge is a great guy who gave us plenty of advices and helped us wherever he could. We couldn’t have asked for a better accommodation as our first stay in Cuba. He arranged the best casa particulares in our next destination, the room was very clean, he was always there for questions and we never felt like he talked us into something, just gave good advices for Havanna and the rest of our trip! We wish all the best for him and his family and hope to see him again! Annie and Seb
I stayed one night after my trip within Cuba. The location was perfect, very convenient, good internet connection, air-conditioning, great hospitality. You will feel safe. The host was so helpful and freindly, you can get all the information you need here! Thank you so much, again, Jorge!
Stayed 4 night in this place with kind hospitality, comfortable room and excellent location. In addition, the host will give you the very useful information about the tour in CUBA. I can't wait to visit there again!
Jorge was so helpful in organising a late booking for my daughter. Alas she had to cancel at the last minute so she didn't get to enjoy his hospitality. So I can't vouch for the accommodation but I can say that it would be hard to find a nicer, more helpful host than Jorge.
Jorge is professional, friendly and knowledgeable! Speaks very good english, he made my travel experience in Havana much easier. Will definitely recommend this place to others. The location is just amazing, 5 to 15 mins walk to all the attractivenesses. I stayed in the double bedroom with private bathroom all by myself, it's clean and comfortable, will definitely recommend to others
Stayed here for our honeymoon and it was lovely. Rooms were very unique and really pleasant. The staff were extremely helpful and nice. The airline had lost our bags and they helped us by calling the airport and helped us locate places for us to buy some clothes etc which wasn't an easy task in havana. They even helped us book another casa which was fab! This casa is situated in a good location and very secure. Would recommend staying here for sure.
