Un des meilleurs séjours que nous ayons fait à Cuba ! L'endroit était idéalement situé dans une très belle maison décoré avec goût par notre hôte. La chambre et la salle de bain étaient propres. Il y avait une grande terrasse protégée en hauteur. Et que dire des jus de fruits servis le matin : les meilleurs que j'ai bus de ma vie ! Notre hôte nous a donnés des informations précieuses : des bons restaus, comment aller à la plage, comment aller et loger à Vinales et nous a même garder nos lourds bagages lorsque nous y sommes partis.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Dania is a very friendly and helpful host and the room was nice and clean. We can definitely recommend it.
We had a perfect time in Havana. Dania is a fantastic host who wants to help you with everything. The breakfast was delicious and the location perfect. Really close to everything in a nice neighbourhood. (Not that touristic) I would really recommend this casa also because of the local atmosphere. Thank you a lot for the great start you give our holiday!
Dania est une charmante hôtesse qui parle français et qui souhaite vous rendre tout le temps service.
l'appartement est très bien situé non loin de la vieille ville. C'est une bonne adresse.
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
C'était une femme qui nous a accueilli ,elle était charmante faisant des efforts pour qu'on se comprenne. Petit déjeuner équilibré chambre propre et plutôt agréable vraiment un moment sympa que je recommande
Everything was great. It´s close to everything near Habana Vieja and Park Central. The people are helpfull and nice. I can recomend it.
German and Yunier are two adorable guys, very nice and accommodating ! They help us a lot (for our lost bagages..) and always with the smile. The room, the breakfast,.. were just perfect !
Unfortunately, there is a maximum of 5 hearts to rate, but they deserve 10 !!
It was a real pleasure, thanks a lot for all what you've done and for sharing very good moments !!

Pour les francophones: les hôtes parlent français tres bien. And english as well.
So if you're new to Havana or Cuba and your Spanish is not so good, this is the place to stay, because you'll get lots of information in English or French.
We can 100% recommend this family.
If you're sensitive to noise, maybe ask for the upper floor, the lower floor has an air condition that works well, but quite noisy. If you're too sensitive to noise, maybe Havana at all is not for you ;-)
Many thanks for being out hosts for our stay in Havana! We do come back and you will be the first we'll ask for lodgement.
Hasta la victoria siempre, Anna, Markus & Harry.
The "Casa Viola" was really a wonderful choice, not only for the location (walking distance to many attractions), but also for the comfort of the room and the friendly atmosphere. I've already recommended it for friends. Yummy (e muy rico) breakfast! I miss Habana already!
