I stayed for one night with a friend and liked it so much that I came to stay there again for two nights at the end of my trip. The casa is located quite centrally in walking distance between Havana Vieja and the Capitol. I felt perfectly safe also alone in the streets at night (the area seems a bit dodgy at first sight, but well, that's Habana vieja!). The casa is on the top floor, you have to climb the stairs until the end and ring the bell. The casa itself is very nice, colonial style, clean, safe. There are several rooms (= you might meet other travellers), the room I've stayed in had a window, fan and aircondition, an empty cupboard, a mirrow, shelves, fresh linen and a towel. There are several bathrooms, a roofed terrace for the breakfast and dinner as well as a big roof terrace with an amazing view. The breakfast was plenty of delicious fruit (too much to eat actually), freshly squeezed juice, bread, honey, eggs, coffee and tea. I had dinner only once but it was very good too. And last but not least, the owners are very friendly, open- and service-minded and relaxed people. I felt as if I was staying with old friends. To anyone who wants to stay in a casa particolar in Habana vieja, I highly recommend the Casa della Calle Luz.
