We stayed at Casa mer on our first few nights in havana, and then again on the last 2, before heading out of the country.
I cannot recommend this place enough.
First: if you re trying to pick between staying in vedado or havana vieja, I strongly recommend picking the former. its more airy, open, residential, a break from the hustle and bustle of Old havana, the noise, the crowds. after you spend your days roaming old havana, its so nice to go back to vedado, for some down time.
Second, many of Havana's must see sights are actually in vedado, so you re not at all far away from where you wanna be.
this casa has it all: friendly and knowledgable owners, real people, a real family, that is eager to help and advice you on your trip, but is not in your face in a touristy sort of way. they re wonderful people, educated, well mannered, and best of all,kind. their casa is immaculately clean and comfortable, its rooms spacious, high ceilinged, comfortable, the breakfast wonderful, their backyard amazing for making you feel like you re really on holiday.
After having spent 8 days in cuba, and a few nights in other casas, in cienfuegos, trinidad etc, I can honestly say that this was the best place we stayed at. and i cant imagine it getting any better.
if you have to choose, please choose this one. Amazing!More
