My husband and I stayed with Jorge, Marisol, and Jessica for 4 nights in October 2016. Our stay was perfect. We rented a room with a connected private bathroom in the house - Jorge gave us our own keys and we were able to easily come and go. The room is clean and spacious, and the bathroom was spotless with...

My husband and I started and ended our vacation in Cuba with Jorge and his lovely family. It was one of the best experiences during our entire trip! The room and bathroom are very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. We had such a great time, in particular, because Jorge, Marisel and Jessica were always ready to chat and...

Jorge and Mari make excellent hosts. Wonderfully located and clean apartment. We stayed for 3 nights and would recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic Cuba experience. Though be aware this is authentically no frills. It is their house you are living in, not a hotel

We found this Casa in the Moon travel book - Havana by Christopher Baker. We booked for 4 nights in March 2016. The description on the website and the book was 100% accurate. Jorge, his wife Marisel and Jessica (daughter) were wonderful hosts. We don't speak any Spanish and we managed just fine, Jessica is fluent in English. The Casa...

The location of the accommodation (Vedado) is excellent. The room is basic (compared to european standards) BUT it is clean, it has it's own bathroom, the bed is good and it has a fan. The hosts were extremely nice and helpful and this made the whole stay a very enjoyable experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

When we were planning our trip to Cuba, myself and my husband knew we didnt want to stay at hotels, but in casas particulares. A friend of mine recommended Casa Jorge Coalla Potts and I wrote to them straight away. They replied the e-mails very fast (considering that Internet access in Cuba is not that easy). As I booked months...

Thank you for a wonderful first-time-experience in Havana! The house was great, with a great location in Vedado. We had two rooms, both with separate bathrooms, showers and toilets. We stayed for four nights, four adults and three children. We had our own refrigerator, but if we wanted to use the kitchen we could. The breakfast was great: fresh fruit,...

Although we didn't actually stay with Jorge (he was full) I wanted to write a review because Jorge and his daughter, Jessica, helped us set up our entire trip around the west of Cuba. Without them, i'm not sure where we would have ended up! Through his extensive network we had a completely hassle free trip which included staying in...

Staying here (2 nights) was a great start to my first visit to Cuba. The room (with private in-room bathroom) was very clean and the bed, very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and overly generous (fruit, bread with butter, jam and cheese, agua de fruta, tea or coffee, eggs with veggies). I couldn't eat it all. When I first got to...

“Front room has an en suite bathroom but is a little smaller and is closer to the living room. Back room is very private but the private bathroom is just a step outside of the room. Both are a great choice.”
