My short review about this wonderful casa in Santiago de Cuba.
I stay 2 whole months in Cuba as a backpacking tourist, so that I reach Santiago at the end of my trip.
I was very glad that a family in Camaguey act as a broker, so that I find this lovely casa.
When I reach Santiago with the Viazul, a taxi driver bring a friend and me to the casa in the heart of Santiago de Cuba. It's very central and every important tourist feature (sign) it's nearby. Boulevard, Casa de la trova, casa de la musica, you just need 2-4 minutes to reach the places. So it's perfect if you want to go out in the evening.
The owner of the casa (Yisel & Martin) are very lovely and allways willing to help you. If you have any question or any problem, you can speak with them. So the service is quiet perfect.
The accomoodation is quiet good. In every Room you have 2 bed, an air conditioner and a beautiful bathroom with a hot water shower. In front of your house u have an internal courtyard where you can sit, relax, read a book or do somethign else.
But the most amazing place in this casa is the roof top patio (terace), which you reach by stairs. It's on top of the house and looks like a gardin. You have a small waterspout fountain and flowers everywhere, so that you can escape from the metropolitan jungle. You have 3-4 tables and chairs and a great bar, so that you get the feeling of a restaurant. I really enjoy every breakfast, every coffee i take in this wonderful place. I often invite some friends to take dinner with us, which wasn't a problem for Yisel. She offers us the best food, which i get in Santiago de Cuba! After that we relax there and drink some Cuba Libre.
Breakfast you can take whenever you want, you just tell Yisel or Martin the time and they will handle it for you!
In the end, I'm very glad , get to know Yisel & Martin and the whole family and I hope to stay there one day in the future. But if i come back to Cuba and especially to Santiago de Cuba, CASA YISEL is my first adress!
