“My best place to enjoy Havana.”
Reviewed 23 April 2011

On the top floor of a 4 story building, the room of this casa is for me the best place to enjoy Havana. Few minutes walking from the Malecon, the hotel Nacional, the University and the famous ice cream Coppelia, the Armando's casa is a choice you won't regret. Very clean bathroom and a great balcony. You will enjoy the room, but above all, you will appreciated Armando. He's a incredible source of valuables infos on all the mains attractions, but even more about the underground life of cuban reality. He speaks perfect french and english.

Armando and Betty are really wonderful people. Very hospitable, always available to answer your questions and give great advice! Armando has a beautiful casa in Vedado and gave us a good insight into Cuban life. Casa is very clean and spacious and in a good area of town. He has two rooms for rent. The first room has a balcony and is larger than the second. The second is also a very good room which was the one we stayed in - spacious and clean.

The restaurant across from his casa, La Roca was very good, Cuban and Italian cuisine and very cheap.

The address is Apt 7, Calle 21, No 62, between Calles M & N. Phone number is [-----] I'd strongly recommend this place for your trip to Cuba.

Reviewed 9 April 2007

Armando and his wife are the friendliest and most genuine casa owners I met during my 2 weeks travelling around Cuba. They always helped me with any kind of information I needed.
Armando is fluent in both English and Italian, which is really nice.
The casa itself is nicely decorated, clean, safe and has great views: the bed is comfortable and the shower is powerful.
You can book it by phone (the number is on the Lonely Planet), but you can also go directly and if for any reason Armando is full he will find you another accommodation nearby.

The only reason why I didn't give it the top rating is because of the location, which is quite noisy at night, but being right in the centre of Vedado (where most of the Havana night-life is) you couldn't expect otherwise.

The address is Calle 21 No.62 apt. 7. Calle 21 is a long street, Armando's casa is between streets M and N, which is near the seafront.

I strongly recommend this accommodation,
Mirko.
