“The best place to stay in Havana: Hostal Casanovas”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

The experience with Hostal Casanovas was great, actually could not be better. Living at Casanovas's family meant surrounded by real local people, down-to-earth live style I just felt this is what all tourists should experience. Central location, safe environment, great food, friendly people.
Our stay in Havana couldn't have been better, thanks to this Hostal, the owner, all the family, and of course the location.
Breakfast with fresh fruit, fresh juice, bread, eggs and everything you can think of for breakfast. Especially delicious coffee!.
Also dinner was great!! they prepare what you want to eat, with the special Cuban touch! And always with delicious dessert.
Very professional.

I stayed with the Casanova family in March 2013. Wonderful family, July and Vladimir Casanova, and their two sons Alessandro age 7 and Alexander age 14. Comfortable with huge meals, much more than one could eat. Vladimir a terrific cook. Ask about tour bus, all day hop on - hop off for $5. This was my first view of Cuban family life - obviously very close. Family dynamic quite nice to witness, a true "family" gathering.

My wife and I stayed with the Casanovas in their hostel room in December. They were both such lovely people to stay with and the house has a very relaxed family feel to it.

Good cheap clean accommodation can be hard to find in Havana but this place is hard to beat, very private room with private bathroom/ensuite.

The location in Neptuno street is also very central in a nicer quiet part of town that has good access points to all of the other interesting areas of Havana.

Vlad and Julia were happy to prepare beautiful meals for us and give us any help they could in navigating our way around Cuba

Highly recommend a stay in their casa!
