Rosa was the most hospitable casa owner we stayed with during our trip to Cuba. On our first night (new years eve) she took us to a family party with dinner and dancing - which was amazing and very generous. We were made to feel at home in her casa, chatting in the living room, Rosa introduced us to other guests, showed us where to buy water and beer, ordered taxis for us and served breakfast and dinner. Her prices are extremely reasonable, 5CUC less than everywhere else we stayed, and the location, whilst not in the tourist centre was a nice apartment block where you got the opportunity to mingle with local people. It was only 1-2CUC for a bici-taxi to Havana Vieja, and there are no touts in the area, so it's relaxing to walk around. The room was a good size and clean, as was the bathroom, (shared between 2).
