I stayed with Mercedes and Jorge in February 2011 and have no complaints. I was really pleased to have a safe in my room as loosing my money and/or passport would have been - well, you know - really bad! I felt safe there and liked being in the center of things; since I was a single female traveler, I felt I could go out nearby at night and not worry about getting home.
This place had a nice B & B feel to it, not too involved with 'the family', but helpful and accommodating, which was nice for me as I had just come from a homestay in Mexico. If you want a lush bed and complete silence then, you really don't want a "Casa" experience.
I had my own private bathroom and met a couple of other travellers at breakfast - La Havana is not an easy place to live and Mercedes and Jorge do a very good job at making you feel comfortable. Muchisimas Gracias!
