“Wonderful Casa, great location and people”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stayed in the Casavana for 4 nights and the owner and staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful for the entire trip. The bedroom was spacious with a great bed and modern bathroom a well as being spotless. The breakfast was great and the entire staff, even those who could not understand us were so helpful, going out their way to assist us. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Havana and there is a lovely restaurant just below on the corner and also a short walk from the Malecon. We had an excellent time, thanks so much!

CASA VANA is the best "Casa Particular" in Havana not just because spectacular location and view, magnificent breakfast, cleanliness etc. It is the best because of the people that will make you feel that you are part of the family! If you have any doubts choose "Casa Vana" you will not regret it. I have been at "Casa Vana" twice - 2013/14 and my third time at Cuba will be at the same place ;)

My wife and I stayed in Casavana for four nights at the start of our Honeymoon and were made extremely welcome from the moment we arrived and were greeted by Carlos with a Daiquiri and a specially made up room for us. The candles were such lovely touch.
All the staff were fantastic- I'm sorry that I can't remember everyone's name but they couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are great and the breakfasts are wonderful and more than enough the get you through most of the day.
They don't serve dinner but gave us great recommendations for restaurants in the area.
The location is perfect: Vedado is only CUC5-8 in a taxi from Old Havana and much more laid back than there.
I can't recommend this Casa enough. If you're going to Havana, it's the perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 3 and 4 ( The double room and the Junior suite). Both were great, but if I had to...

An excellent place to stay at the end of our trip, we loved it!

This place is not Havana vieja, which is much more colonial. But the are is great, with lots of restaurants, bars, green spaces and, of course the malecon. It's very close to the hotel nacional, universities, Habana cafe, plaza de la revolucion and much more.

It was a pleasure to stay in casa vana, we were extremely well looked after. They were very welcoming and the breakfast provided is terrific. We had the great fortune to stay on the newly opened 11th floor apartment, with views even more spectacular that the 5th. A lovely clean and comfortable room with a great shower.

Im currently doing a Photography thesis in Havana and will travel here often.
I needed to stay somewhere with a view and in a central location where I
can get around easily. The hostel is located in a beautiful central Avenue
surrounded by various restaurants within a short walking distance. Also
close by is Hotel National where the cabaret Parisien is located, Havana café in Hotel Cohiba and the jazz club zorra y el cuervo.
A few blocks down they have a Wi-Fi center inside Hotel President. Close by is a bank
and from there you can take a tour bus around the entire city (highly
recommended for a higher view of the city only 5cuc). Casavana is
located only 10 minutes from la Havana Vieja, since they are on a main
avenue you can hail a classic American taxi cab from the main entrance for
only 1cuc for 2 people. The staff takes excellence and comfort to a new
level, from the moment u walk in they are excited to meet you and greet you
and help you with any questions you may have on how to move around the
city. This was definitely my home away ++very humble and attentive++ . Spacious rooms, minibar , excellent air conditioning, impeccably clean rooms very comfortable beds, also room
has safe box and nice bathrooms with 24hour hot water. I stayed in the 11th floor
junior suite with balcony (view of city and sea the sunset on the Havana
city skyline from the Casavana balcony is unforgettable).

The breakfast here will make you feel like royalty!!! Beautifully set table
inside or outside both overlooking the city, Fresh tropical fruits. Antique
figures and paintings surround the space definite plus for people who
appreciate art. They also washed my cloths free of charge! I was in shock
at the amount of care and attention Casavana gives their guest. I'd like
to thank Marta, Ana and Carlos for exceeding all my expectations. I now
have a permanent place here in Havana when I visit. I highly recommend this
hostel to anyone who would like to feel as if they are at home while away
on holiday.

Room Tip: select the 11th floor junior suites for the sunrise and balcony space very fresh, good view.

we have stayed about 5 nights in this casa. after several more stays in casas in cuba, we have to rate CASAVANA as our personal #1 - en todo de cuba! some, but not all, reasons
- best breakfast you can get in cuba
- very friendly family, where you immediateley feel being part of it
- location excellent, 5 minutes walk to famous Malecon, a 10-15 minutes walk to Hotel Nacional, Hotel Cuba Libre etc., also 5 minutes walk to the Hotel Presidente (where you can access internet, book excursions, have a Mojito etc.)
- superb view (yes, you can watch the sea while having breakfast)
- spacious, clean rooms, all with A/C and fridge
- ... many more things to say, but: go there, find out!
