Quirky, unique and not a stick of furniture from after 1940. Art deco lamps & cigar stands are everywhere & the indoor / outdoor public rooms are amazing. The bedrooms are on the basic side but you are not in Havana to watch TV & the rest of the casa more than makes up for it. Julio & his family...

Stayed for a few nights at Carlos & Julio's place during my recent trip to Cuba, and enjoyed it so much that I returned for one more night when returning to Havana later in my trip. Their house is absolutely beautiful, full of wonderful old furniture and many plants, and has real character. The rooms were incredibly spacious, clean and...

We came to stay at Carlos and Julio's after a few days staying in Habana Vieja, so we were really ready to experience more walking city life in Havana, and this was the perfect location. Just two blocks down the hill from their home in a quiet neighborhood is Calle 23, a main artery of the Vedado that leads downhill...

Lovely house in Vedado. Great area to stay close to city center and Old Havana by a quick cheap cab ride. The hosts are very nice and friendly and lovely lady who makes breakfast in the morning. Would defenately recommend!

First the good. Hosts, Carlos and Julio are very nice and offered us tips on what to do and see while in Habana. Carlos speaks fluent English so that's a huge plus if you're keen on speaking to a local about Cuban culture and politics. We also enjoyed the breakfasts here, which includes the standard fruit salad, eggs of your...

Very pleasant and interesting hosts. Good sized room and facilities in traditional house in quiet residential neighbourhood. Excellent breakfasts. We really enjoyed our stay here. Vedado is a good walk from Old Havana or a short taxi ride.

The best thing about this casa are the hosts, Carlos and Julio, who are friendly and accommodating. They both speak good English, and Carlos kindly phoned ahead to my next casa to reconfirm. The casa is a typical Vedado flat with three guest rooms, and it’s a good introduction to how people live in this part of the city. Considering...

Carlos & Julio are great hosts and I felt very at home in the 5 days I stayed in Havana. The breakfast was hands down the best I had in any casa in Cuba. It's a little pricier than others at $30 a night rather than usual $20-$25 but worth it for proximity to stuff and the beautiful neighbourhood. One...

I have been staying in La Casa de Carlos y Julio for many years. Every stay is a comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. Carlos and Julio go out of their way to make you feel taken care of and that you'll have everything you need. Private rooms with high ceilings and many antiques gives you the feeling of Havana in earlier...

Carlos & Julio and Tania are all wonderful, warm people, and their home is stunning, very stylish. (Considering that Carlos and Julio both work in the theatre, this should not come as a surprise.) The guest rooms are large, and the beds are comfortable. As with other casas, you have the option of using the window, a ceiling fan, or...
