With so many casas to choose from in Havana, I can thoroughly recommend this safe and secure one. It was a recommendation from a friend. Before I arrived, emails were exchanged to confirm dates and everything was clear, even organising transport from the airport. My luggage was lost for over three hours but Marisela and her driver waited for me. She speaks English well and of course Spanish. There are four rooms, each with comfy beds, a mini bar, fridge, television, air con, fan and breakfast options. Bathrooms are clean with towels and soap and hot water. Located in Vedado it's close to the Havana Libre Hotel. Marisela arranged other casas in other parts of Cuba and helped to shape my intinery during my months stay. Prices were 30 CuC per room. As I was solo I paid the full amount but if there are two of you you obviously split the cost.
