La Casa De La Calle Luz Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #265 of 729 Havana B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 May 2012

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.

It is a very good place to stay in Havana. The rooms are big and clean, there are towels as well. There are 3 bathrooms that we could use and a huge terrace with an amazing view of La Habana Vieja. The hosts were super nice and they made us to feel like home! It was brilliant to have breakfast on the balcony before visiting Havana all day. The breakfast was amazing, the best I've ever had in all Cuba! Lost of fresh fruit, good quality food and very good coffee! To be honest, it was not that easy to get it in the other places that I've stayed at. So I totally recommend it, I'm sure I will be back there!

Really enjoyed staying here. At the top of a stairway, through an unremarkable doorway lies this spacious apartment. There are 3 rooms I think - ours had air conditioning which was v. welcome. Not sure if they all do. There are 3 bathrooms further down the corridor with hot water. The apartment itself is much bigger than I imagined and has a roof terrace overlooking the old time and a semi-terrace where you can enjoy a lovely breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs, rolls and fresh (real) coffee. We were very well looked after by our lovely, friendly and v. tranquilo host. Great location in the middle of the old town, great service, good views. So much better value than a hotel. The only thing to be warned of is that there are a few stairs to get to the apartment, so you need to be reasonably able bodied. Would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending this Casa.

I first stayed at La Casa de La Calle Luz in 2008 and also in 2011, and consider it my home in Cuba. A warm and intimate house it offers good food, very comfortable air-conditioned rooms and most importantly for me (with photography in mind), amazing views from the rooftop terrace to the oldest streets of Havana. The owners and staff are always cheerful, warm and friendly. It's difficult to not feel being part of their family, though at the same time feeling completely independent and having my privacy respected. Ah, I forgot to mention the food!

Habana Vieja (or Old Havana) is one of the few places which take you back to the 17th and 18th centuries, and this B&B is an opportunity to wake up right in the middle of it, say hello to all the neighbors, drink a juice, stroll around and forget work.... Ah, how I miss it.
