J'ai passé un bon séjour à la Casa Rosa et c'était formidable !
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I can not recommend this place. There was an appointment by phone shortly before. There were a few apartments at the given address, but nobody knew Rosa there. Total flop. Pity about the commission and the unnecessary time.
We were 3 girls staying at Carmens home (a.k.a Rosa, Carmens sister).
The homestay was exactly as the pictures shown. It was clean and cozy.
Located in a not tourist part of central Havana which was nice because it was local and cheaper prices on food.
Carmen are a great host, she doesn't speak much english but with little spanish and lots of sign language it went great. She's very helpful and took good care of us as if we were her children.
Would recommend any traveler to stay here cuz it's a true Cuban experience.
● L'hôte vous laisse seul dans un appartement où personne ne vit mais interdit quiconque que vous d'entrer car elle n'a confiance en personne (pas même vous puisque elle prendra les clefs de votre chambre si vous la fermez à clef)
●Décevant.. pas d'eau chaude le premier soir car la hôte avait coupé le gaz.
Le deuxième soir la gazinière branlante sentais le gaz sans y avoir touché (fuite ?)
●Le 3eme et 4eme soir elle m'a recommandé son neuveux "Papucho" pour sortir et être:
1) mon taxi
2) prof de salsa
3) guide touristique
4) compagnon de soirée (étant seul)
Tout ça pour 50 euros (2 soirs)
1) il n est jamais entré avec moi car il ne voulais pas payer l'entrée (5€) ou n'était pas habillé correctement pour pouvoir rentrer
2) il m'a donc servi uniquement de taxi entre 1h et 30 min de retard à chaque fois
3) pour info, à ce prix là vous pouvez louer une voiture pour 2 jours.
Sachant par la suite que les taxis collectif sont à 1€ le trajet.. Et les bus à 40 centimes..
The hosts were very welcoming; the guy talks English, but the woman doesn't. Wasn't a problem for us. Clean room. Breakfast was not the best though, would skip it. Good location, able to walk to all the highlights. Not a touristy area, so you can find cheap (peso)food. There's also a really good restaurant closeby called Doña Alicia (right next to Parque de la Santa Varela). For just $3 you can have a great meal + drink here, but it does get really crowded sometimes so come early! If it's to busy, the restaurant also does takeaway next door. In general a good stay!

tres bien placee ,tres propre et tres gentille
Good location close to the main attractions but not in a touristy neighbourhood. Rosa’s nephew really gave us some good information about interesting places to go to. A good experience.
Rosa is extremely welcoming and does her best to accommodate guests, however, I found if you don’t understand Spanish then communication can be very difficult. I booked with Rosa knowing that it was 2.3km away from the centre, so I was willing to walk 30 minutes everyday into town (taxis were available). The only critique I would give is that the front gate to the apartment locks at 10pm and I was never given a key, so I had to stay with friends when i didn’t get back in time.
How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
When can I share my contact details?
