We were recommended dr Alejandro's place at Malecón, and booked a room a couple of months before going to Havana. Pics looked amazing at tripadvisor. When finally arriving at his place with no signs whatsoever, the doctor himself showed up after one hours, totally drunk. We were given a dark room with shared bathroom, with no water at all. This...

Best Host, Best food (you can have an extra fish meal if you ask ). Best location, in front of the sea. If you trust Alejandro and his friend you will have the privilege of being CUBAN. Follow his suggestion to the letter, you won't regret it. Thanks for this amazing experienc ale, we'll be back. Un perro tiene 4... More

Sure, it's no 5 star resort.....but who cares!!!! This is one of the hotels in which I have felt most comfortable, looked after and relaxed in my whole life. The rooms are clean, simple but just perfect and I have no words to describe the owner's patience and such great great sense of humour. Plus Cuba is a paradise and... More

This casa is owned by one of the friendliest Cubans I have ever met. Dr. Alejandro speaks very good English and is always happy to help you with anything you need. The colonial building with its sky-high ceilings en balcony on the Malecon makes the stay at this casa an unforgettable experience! We planned to stay two nights but stayed... More

We originally booked for three days, ended up staying for ten days straight and then came back again for the last few days of our trip! Initially a little taken aback by the exterior - a colonial-style building which has suffered from exposure to the sea and the elements - the house turned out to be lovely. We stayed in... More

If you want a taste of the real Havana, this is definitely the place for you. If you want to get to know a genuine Cuban and stay in a typical Cuban house for the real Havana experience, you won't find better than this. Alejandro was as welcoming this time as on my previous visit last year, and the view... More

My friend and me arrived late in the evening and first we didn't find the right house. Our cab driver was so nice helping us out and Alejandro was already walking the street up and down to look for us. It was a very relaxed and friendly welcome and I slept like a baby. The view on the first morning... More

We have been at Ale's place at the Malecon with beautiful ocean view in 2004 and then again in 2010. It is a great place to stay when in Habana. Alejandro and his family are very nice and helpful! The next time we are definitely going to stay again there!

I just returned from 10 days staying in Havana at Alejandro's. I have never felt more at home in someone's house that I didnt know before my holiday! He was very welcoming, and made some fantastic fresh and tasty breakfasts for me. I had the front room overlooking the Malecon, and even though it was a little noisy with traffic... More

The location of this house could not be better, walking distance (10 minutes) to Galliano with its amazing Casa De La Musica, 5 minutes to Prado, a favourite street for people watching, and around 20 minutes walk to Havana Vieja. Alejandro, an English-speaking doctor, is a really great host who cares about his guests and works hard to ensure they... More

“I loved the front room with the view and had my own bathroom, although this was at the rear of the house. The other rooms are quieter though as further away from the road, but then you will share a bathroom.”
