William and his family was so welcoming, and the space was kept nicely. The bathroom and bedroom were clean and had good AC. Every morning, we had a wonderful breakfast and got to talk to the family. The location is about a 7 min walk from the capitol building and quiet at night. On our way to the airport, William called a taxi to take us. Overall, a wonderful experience.
A very humble and happy family. they were very good to me. The breakfast and guidance and direction what thing to do in Cuba. I highly recommend thank you very much for this family and I am sure that anyone I know i will recommend them and I will be in the future with my family thanks to them and I love you

I stayed at William and Orquieda's casa for a week while I was in Havana again for a Cuban dance festival. From the moment I arrived, where they were standing outside waiting for me as I pulled up in the airport cab, they made me feel so welcome.
***FOOD*** We ate a homemade dinner together that first night (a welcome gift) and Orquieda's cooking is 10/10. I always looked forward to the plentiful and varied breakfast in the morning - fresh fruit, bread, guyaba jam, eggs and some meat, cuban style coffee. I often couldn't finish the fruits so Orquieda would kindly put them in a lunchbox for me to take to my dance practice.
***PEOPLE*** They are both such lovely people who are always happy to help or chat about life - Orquieda only speaks Spanish which was a great opportunity for me to practice. She was very patient with my ability! I also met their son Nelson, who made all the gorgeous paintings in their casa.
***ROOM*** I selected the triple room, which was in great condition and a great retreat from the hot Cuban weather. Every other day I'd come back and see that the bed is made and the bin cleared - after a long day of dancing, this was a super apprecieated level of hospitality!
***LOCATION*** This casa is on San Miguel street, which is a great base to have as it is a short walk away from the Capitolio and the Malecon. Immediately when you step out the building, you meet the bustling life in Havana. A local shopping mall is nearby to buy any amenities, and a number of places for lunch/dinner.
You will not be disappointed staying here if you're in Havana!
A great casa in centro Havana. The room was nice and clean. William and Orchidea are very kind people, we enjoyed the time we spent together and we enjoyed the delicious meals!
It was one of our best places to stay in Cuba. The location is great. Very central, safe and very quiet. The hosts speak good English and are very helpful. We were there for 3 nights. On foot to the national theater is 10 minutes, also to Malekon. Breakfast was very rich and big. Everything was very recommendable.
Our stay with Mr. William and Mrs. Orquidea was wonderful. They were most welcoming and hospitable. Orquidea’s breakfast each morning was grand and delicious. She was very kind and wanted to make sure we were comfortable, which we were. Their home was very clean and we were provided with clean linens and towels. They are centrally located which made it easy to explore Havana.
Thank you William and Orquidea for making us feel at home. We truly enjoyed our stay.
The first and the best stay in Cuba for us. William and his family are very hospitable and warm-hearted people. They serve a very delicious breakfast and dinner. On short notice William helped us to realize our trip to Viñales by organizing a taxi colectivo.
We could not have chosen a better place to stay in Havana. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality; we arrived as guests in your home and left as friends. We had a lovely spacious room with fan, AC, fridge and modern bathroom. Breakfast was delicious (and included in the price) with fruit, eggs, bread, ham, homemade fresh juice, and Cuban coffee to set us up for the day. We really felt at home and William and Orchid were lovely hosts and only too happy to help with anything we needed. The apartment is in the real heart of Havana, away from the tourists, just a 10 minute walk to the main square, and opposite a great live music venue with bands playing daily (5-8.30pm).
Our stay with William and Orchid gave us a real experience of Havana and life in Cuba: a great start to our holiday.
We would love to come back to see you in the future!
Friendly home and very god brekfast
Staying at William was a fantastic! Perfect location, clean and tiday room, the quiet and pleasant air-conditioner, nice breakfast with lots of fresh fruits, but first of all I will always remember the kindness and generous hospitality. 까사테 윌리엄은 위치가 좋고, 깨끗한 방, 조용한 에어컨, 과일이 풍부한 아침식사가 있어서 편안한 휴식을 보장하는 곳입니다. 주인도 정보를 많이 주시고 친절하고 빨래도 해 주고 주인 아들과는 영어도 가능합니다.
