We end up in this Casa en Havana Central because our driver recommended it.

Aside from David and his family who are super friendly and helpful, the 2 casas are large and comfortable, with traditional wood furniture, great mattresses, with new electric and air conditioning system, lots of water pressure (a nice change in comparison to havana vieja or other casa we stayed at.

It is pretty conveniently located, to walk to la casa de la musica, et parque central area.
Food was great and lots to eat for a very reasonable price, David has the best cigars contact that we found also.

i would come back there if i ever am in Havan again..

Room Tip: more quiet is 2nd casa (David Junior's)

I honestly can't recommend this place enough. The houses are amazing, the rooms are great, breakfast is fantastic (I'll defy anyone to eat all of it;-) its massive) and David and his family are lovely, lovely people.

I can't imagine better value for money in a capital city.

The house is situated close to the the old towm (about a 15 minute walk) and the street itself looks a little run down, but don't let this put you off, you actually get hassled far less here than in the old town where the bulk of the tourist trade is.

David gave us a run down of all the things we need to be aware of as first timers in Havana and the advice came in handy on a number of occassions.

The resident crocodiles and turtles are a soothing way to pass a few minutes in the hall way as well.

If you're going to Havana, please consider this place (and no, I'm not on comission) :-) its a great, quiet refuge from the craziness of the city and we met a nice bunch of other travellers there as well.

We didn't know what to expect when we returned to Havana to stay in Maison David y Lidia. We had chosen somewhere else but it was full so the web agent suggested and booked us here. It was in a very convenient part of Centro Havana which was just what we wanted, so it was easy to walk into Havana Viejo. The street is narrow and the front door not very imposing so we were delighted when we entered and found ourselves in the hall of a large and imposing old colonial-type building. David has the whole ground floor including an open courtyard with fountain. There were 2 small alligators in it which David told us had bad eyes. "I am a vet and when they are cured I shall return them to the wild."
Our room was in fact a suite. We had the original salon of the house, a very large bedroom which he kindly put a second double bed in for us, a little hall with a fridge, and a bathroom with efficient shower. David speaks excellent French and in fact most of his guests were French - this seems to be a hidden gem that only the French so far have discovered! (which is particularly why I wanted to write this review) He also speaks good English and was very helpful. The Continental breakfast was large and tasty, not cooked but lots of pastries, breads, fruit and jams. David has a computer and internet connection, which is rare in Havana. He is also listed on rentaencuba,cu. For around £25 per night for two, you really can't go wrong. This is a really great place to stay whilst you are in Havana - we have already recommended it to friends and would have stayed there on our final night when we again returned to Havana - sadly he was fully booked.
