“Fantastic & Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2013

I spent 7 nights at La Casona this time and it was truly wonderful. I had breakfast every morning and a party on one night. The host Dalia took care of all the details and made sure my guests enjoyed their time. The pool was open and I enjoyed the few times I just soaked in it. The place is clean and comfortable. I stayed in the room at the front and had no problems as it was cool and comfortable. I happened to meet Lissethe who was visiting as I had made the reservations through her and it was a delight to meet her, I enjoyed the Breakfasts that Dalia the host provided especially the fresh fruits. I would recommend to anyone visiting Holguin to pay a visit to La Casona dn can assure you that you will not be disappointed. I will stay again at La Casona whenever I visit Holguin. It is convenient, reasonable, clean and run by a very hospitable owner who cares about all the details to make sure your visit and accommodation exceeds your expectation

I made reservations online, and the response time was very good. They got back to me in 24 hours saying that they had room for us. This place is really close to the center, and they have a lovely back patio with a small pool, that you can lounge by. I made reservations online for 5 nights, however after being there for one night, the host told me that she had booked my room for the third night, and that I would have to find other accommodations. I was not really that impressed that my booking was confirmed, then changed. I would have booked another casa. I also received an email with my confirmation asking if I wanted breakfast included, I said yes, but something happened and the host didn't have breakfast for us. The host is very lovely, although she doesn't speak any English. You don't get a key, so you just have to ring the doorbell, no matter what time you come back at. The house itself is very clean, although we did have problems with the water in the shower, sometimes it just wouldn't come on, and at other times, it was cold. But overall it was a clean pleasant place.

I just returned yesterday from a 7 day vacation. Wanted to stay in a casa particular and did alot of research. Came across this one and I beleive I made the best decision ever. The people are all amazing here. They make you feel like it is your own home. The house is very clean and well kept. The food was great. The pool is a bouns on the hot days. I cannot say enough of how wonderful this casa is. Oh and the location is also just amazing. Steps from centre park. I would highly recommend this casa particular and do look forward to going back again very soon. Thank you so much to Lissethe, Dalia and all who help these 2 wonderful people. It was a birthday I will never ever forget.

Hostal La Casona has been definitely one of our favorite casas thanks to the kindness and charme of the couple who owns the house!
Josè Ramon and Dalia are so lovely, taking care so nicely of the guests that you would almost like to stay at home with them rather than going out in the city ;-) We had a really nice time speaking with them!
The house is very nice, with a small swimming pool and a nice courtyard in the back. Some rooms are directly connected to the courtyard, ours was inside the main building, close to the entrance. The vicinity to the street makes the room a bit noisy but if you have problems to sleep you can try to get the rooms in the back. The house is very clean and comfortable... and extremely central! You're close to everything.
The food is really good. Dalia is preparing simple typical cuban dishes for a really low price. The ratio quality/price of this house is really high.
The booking is always very easy trough the website. Lissethe is answering very fast and taking care of the requests.
No doubt that we would visit them again in case we pass by Holguin again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the backyard are quiter and have a nicer location. Try to get one of those.

We were there in last July. Owners are very nice and friendly and the house is great. we feelt very welcome from the first moment.

The room in the front is big and clean with air conditioner. The bathroom, located just few steps outside of the room ( but for our private use ) was also very clean and water was never a problem.

The swimming pool is great!!!!! Holguin is a warm city.

Please try the maracuya juice is really good.

I would like to recommend it to every one.

Hola:
Muchas gracias por tomarte el tiempo para compartir tu opinión con otros viajeros ;))
Y además por tan bonitos comentarios ;))
La mata de maracuya sufrió algunos percances durante los últimos trabajos de ampliación de la piscina, pero ya la podamos y esperamos muy pronto esté produciendo como de costumbre ;))

I had the privilege of being a guest at La Casona. The owner was quite warm and friendly. She was so helpful and I truly enjoyed her warmth and welcoming disposition. I also held a party there for my friends (15) and she was very helpful in organizing it for me. I did not have to worry about anything. I plan on visiting again soon and I am definitely going to be a guest at La Casona again this time for a longer stay. The facilities is always clean, welcoming and the owner take pride in keeping her home in in a fantastic condition. This is a magnificient house. Keep up the great job Dalia. Will be back this year in May.

The hostess doesn't speak English very well, but she's a lovely person who makes you feel at home immediately. The casa is located perfect, just a few blocks from the main square.

The casa is quiet and comfortable. There's a garden and a small swimming pool. The room is clean and has a private bathroom. Breakfast en dinner are excellent.
