“The real Cuba experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

This place is a 10/10. First of all, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, with excellent bathrooms. It is located in the city centre and it's a short walk to the main sights. Also, you can see the ocean from the balcony!

But the best thing about this place is the hosts. Vicente is an amazingly friendly guy whose English is excellent (this is rare in Cuba) but helps you out with Spanish if you want to practice and is patient when you're struggling to express yourself. He treats you like a friend even if you've never been there before. We were invited to drink some rum with him and the other guests and had a great (and late) chat about Cuba and other Latin American countries. It's hilarious when he tells you about guests from different parts of the worlds.

Even after leaving the accommodation, we went and visited Vicente and Alina because it felt so good to be there and have a chat with them. Besides great accommodation they offer you an excellent insight into the REAL Cuba.

I sure can recommend this casa to everybody. Vicente and Alina were very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was good, and there was enought food for two, even though I travelled solo.
I will return here for sure!

Visit a country is always an experience but visit Cuba in a Casa is LIVE that experience. On Casa de Alina y Vicente I realized that CUBA is not a country is way of life... You will feel like a part of a family. In my opinion that is the best way to know cuba. I really hope to get some vacations to get back there...

Alina and Vicente are a great couple who will host you extremely well and make you feel at home. The rooms are basic but clean, most with a small en-suite toilet/shower. We were a big group of 12 and they managed to accommodate us all! They offer breakfast and dinner services at an added cost, but the food is safe to eat, and good. I would recommend this as a place for groups of people travelling to havana, or couples who don't want to spend much money. They are a great couple to chat to, very funny, always ready to help you book a taxi, find information on visiting places etc.

After almost 2 weeks trip in Cuba ,arriving to Alina y Vicente casa was the best decision we made.
They are extremly welcoming and helping with anything you want.Vicente will be glad to spend all the time you need ,accompanied by a local cigar ,talking,recommending and generally make you feel like home.The location is perfect for walking to the old city and the main street.Dont miss this casa when arriving to Havana.

We booked this casa for 3 nights a few days before arriving in Habana.I received the confirmation via email form Vicente, with an attached voucher for the 3 nights.Everything seemed to be ok but when we arrived at the Casa Vicente was surprised to see us!!to make it short there was no room for us!!!We had to wait a couple of hours and at the end he took us to another casa particular round the corner..which was not good at all.
We were very tired after 16 hours of flight and didn't want to waist time looking for another place so we stayed there...but this wasn't fair at all!!On our last day in Habana we had been told in the morning that we had to move back to Alina and Vocente casa for just one night!
I'm glad that we stayed at least on night there so that i can write a comment on the house.It's not bad but there are plenty of better places in centro Habana.It is very noisy and all the rooms are on a corridor between the living room and the dining room...which means no privacy at all.
I won't recommend this place at all.

This is the best place to stay in Havana if you want to stay close to Havana Vieja and travel back and forth to other cuban provinces (you don't need to go all the way to the bus terminal, since the nearby hotel has tour bus stops where guests can be picked up). Alina and Vicente are funny, friendly and extremely helpful. Food is great and every time you get in their house it feels like home.
