Best Hotels In Havana

Casas particulares (rooms in private homes) are the most economical solution in Havana and the rest of the country, although they are much more expensive than elsewhere in Havana.

Approved Cuban families are allowed to rent only two rooms per house, with a maximum of two people per room, unless the third person is a child.

Rooms in private homes are marked with a blue triangular logo (with the red logo, it is reserved for Cuban guests), which you can see on the doors of your potential guests.

Allow between 25 and 50 CUC for a room, depending on the neighborhood, the state of the place and the fact of having come with or without a flapper.

Finally, for a total immersion in the Cuban culture, we really recommend you to stay in a particular casa.

Hotels are often much more expensive, relatively aseptic and far from the human warmth you will find in a room in a local house.

Reservation centers – Networks.

EL ANDARÍN

Network of carefully selected charming casas throughout Cuba in the main tourist cities.

This way they can reserve guest houses for your entire stay, which can save you time.

MYCASAPARTICULAR.COM

A website that references, with photos, a large number of special casas throughout the country and in Havana in particular.

These range from budget accommodation (from 25 CUC per night) to luxury casa particulars (up to 100 CUC per night).

Reservations can be made directly on the site.

Beware of the so-called “jineteros”: the scams are numerous.

As in all the cities of the island, Cubans will approach you to take you to a particular casa.

These “jineteros” in Cuba receive a commission from the owners of the guesthouse when they bring tourists to the guesthouse.

In other words, your night will be automatically increased by 5 CUC, or even much more! So there is no point in following them.

You should also be aware that some clever people come to the entrance of the casa and make you believe that they have arranged you only to get a commission: tell the mistress of the place that you don’t know them! Be also careful with the rabble who make you believe that the particular casa you have reserved no longer exists, that it has no more water or that it is theirs with another name..

It’s all fake and it’s only so that you can go to their casa.

La Habana Vieja north

La Habana Vieja – north and south – is the district that arouses the most enthusiasm when visiting Havana, even if one can find fault with the overly “licked” aspect of some places (especially Plaza Vieja).

The accommodations we have selected will guarantee you an ideal location to visit the city.

The Hostal Valencia is actually the same hotel as El Comendador.

The two have two different names because the prices of the Valencia are softer.

The same establishment, with differences in the standing of the rooms: a real puzzle!

From your balcony you can almost shake hands with the neighbour across the street: 12 of the 14 rooms overlook the narrow Obrapía street.

As far as the restaurant is concerned, the Valencian-style paella is not very copious, but delicious: the chefs (including one woman) have won two international competitions.

His room, No 511, preserved as it is, has been transformed into a mini-museum (visit possible every day from 10 am to 5 pm.

Free for guests, 2 CUC for people outside the hotel).

For the rest, comfort on all floors (air conditioning, TV, fan) despite a moderately successful decoration in the rooms.

Another special feature is that the names of the rooms refer directly to the different varieties of Cuban tobacco.

There are other special casas in the same building, if necessary.

Best Hotels in Havana Center

If the hustle and bustle and noise don’t scare you, staying at Centro Habana will put you in the heart of the city, in the most popular area of Havana.

The architecture is less smooth and more heterogeneous than in Havana Vieja or the Vedado: ruined barracks are next to well-kept and well-kept houses.

This is the place to be if you have a thirst for authenticity and wish to share the daily life of the Havanese.

CASA 1932

  • [email protected]

  • Meal from 12 to 15 CUC.

Our favorite at Centro Habana ! This sublime colonial house built in 1932 (hence the name) but very well restored and with a green patio, contains 3 bedrooms with private bathroom.

The owner, Luis, is warm and will be at your service

For the record, his grandfather, of Palestinian origin, fell in love at first sight with a Cuban girl, and he came to live with her in Cuba in the early 1950s…

The decoration remained as if frozen at that time, just before the 1959 Revolution

And a crazy charm emanates from the place! You will find many antiques in the living room but also in the patio like those metal panels of Coca-Cola pubs or this old bathroom scale that still works.

Not all of these antiques belonged to the family; it is Luis, a great lover of antiques, who acquired most of them and he will be delighted to present his impressive collection (photos, sculptures, vases, coins…).

Thus, the photo of Frank Sinatra at the Hotel Nacional, just before his concert, on the occasion of the Cuban mafia meeting, is simply collector’s item.

As for the rooms, they are spacious and the furniture refined

They are all equipped with fridge, safe, air conditioning and fan

One of the three rooms, called “Louis XVI”, is the “deluxe” room of the casa.

Tastefully decorated, it is decorated with huge mirrors and a complimentary bottle of wine awaits guests.

It’s a real little love nest!

The breakfast is gargantuan (with pancakes and peanut butter, extremely rare products in the casas!) and the meals delicious

They are served in the pleasant patio, or in the cosy lounge near the entrance

An exceptional address.

Good to know: The owner of the casa also organizes themed guided tours of Havana aboard a superb American car

Among the tours offered, two are very popular: the “Art Deco Tour” (an overview of all the Art Deco buildings in the capital), or the “Mafia Tour” (which takes you to the main sites of the Mafia’s glory days in Cuba)

Count 35 CUC per person.

Best hotels in Havana El Vedado

A neighborhood of well-to-do families in Havana at the beginning of the revolution, the Vedado is still a residential area today, even if the activity, day and night, is increasingly important.

Calle 23, also known as the Rampa, is one of the most lively avenues in the capital.

Bars, cabarets and nightclubs abound there.

But the Vedado and its more recent extension, the Nuevo Vedado, have seen more and more bars and clubs since Raul Castro’s reforms, which allow individuals to legally establish their own establishments.

It is therefore the entire Vedado that tends to be lively in the evenings and not just La Rampa, as has long been the case

For those who like to go out, this area is therefore a good base camp for playing night birds.

But, rest assured, the Vedado remains a very quiet area to sleep and in the casas you will not hear the slightest noise because the places to go out are never nearby.

There are many special casas in the Vedado, especially in front of the university; on Calle 21 between Calle J and Calle O or on Calle Linea.

The high ceiling decorated with beautiful mouldings gives the house even more cachet, and how not to fall blissfully in admiration before the imposing period chandelier in the living room.

The big plus of the house is also the warm welcome of Camilo and his father, an octogenarian with impressive dynamism; this retired Cuban ambassador has travelled a lot, he is an encyclopaedia in his own right.

You can rent the rooms alone or the whole apartment with the two bedrooms, which is perfect for a family with children or friends.

If you have a smaller budget, you can also rent the apartment on the ground floor for 20 CUC per night, but the comfort is lower than the one on the 2nd floor because it has not been refurbished.

Rita Paula, the owner, lives on the 1st floor of the house and is at your disposal.

Her son, Elio, who speaks French, is a self-employed driver with an official licence

He can show you Havana by car and drive you wherever you want for a good price.

Please also note that the apartment is located in a residential area of Nuevo Vedado, a little out of the center, so it is better to have a car for shopping and sightseeing, or to use Elio’s services.

Another possibility: Elio puts at your disposal a mountain bike for 4 CUC per day, but it is important to park it in the bike parks in town so as not to have it stolen (the padlock is not enough because thieves are equipped) otherwise you will have to pay it back.

He also rents a motorbike at 20 CUC per day (beware of theft too)

Finally, you will appreciate the calm that reigns in this area

It is, in short, a good address.
