About the Homestay
House of 5 rooms located at a mid point between Vedado and Old Havana, very close to the Plaza de la Revolución. Each room has air conditioning, hot and cold water, double bed and bathroom. We also have a roof terrace very nice and cozy, with plants. Every morning you can have breakfast accompanied by a delicious Cuban coffee (goes around the house). We also have vehicle care service and pick up and drop off from the airport if necessary. They also speak Spanish, English, French and a little Italian.
Our place is located in a very quiet neighborhood built in the 20's. The house it's located upstairs and it has 5 rooms. On the roof top there is a terrace with plants wich it's ideal to sit and relax. We can always offer quietness and peace. We love to give you in the morning to Cuban coffee and chat to help you to organize your day, and optimize your stay; There are a lot to see and to do so it's better if you get to plan.
We are located in the center of Havana, so to get anywhere in the city it's very easy. We are very close to two major avenues where you can take a taxi or a bus wherever you need, mainly to Old Havana or Vedado. In the opposite corner of our block it's the Central Bus Station, where you can buy a ticket to the rest of the country by ViAzul bus company. Two minutes from here it's the iconic Revolution Square, a very wide space from the 50's where you can see the Che Guevara sculpture, and go up in the tower and view the hole city by the gaze.
Our rooms are comfortable and silent, there are air-conditioning, minibar, TV, a wide window and a bathroom ensuite. We name and identify each one by color: orange, green, blue, red and gray, all colors that match with our climate, but still suitable for resting. The bed it's king size, best for couples, but if you need it we can slipt them and create two king size beds. We welcome everyone on the basis of respect and love. We speak English, French and a little bit of Italian.

La stanza aveva una vista su ...un muro, l'atteggiamento di José molto freddo e distaccato, la posizione non particolarmente comoda
Absolutely beautiful, quiet and sparkling clean house in Plaza. I only stayed overnight as I was coming from Varadero by bus to catch a flight in Havana. The location is great if you need to use the Central Bus station serving Viazul bus company. Room was spacious, modern decor, AC, mini-fridge and TV. Bathroom was clean, great shower, very functional. It would've been helpful for me to have a front door key along with my room key to leave or enter the house without having to either ask the host to let me out, or ring the doorbell or making a cellphone call to the host to let me back in.
Perhaps other guests got one, but because of my short stay they didn't think it was necessary. Anyway, clean cozy place. Definitely recommended.
Jose is an excellent host. This was my second stay in Casa Jose. I honestly don't see myself staying anywhere else. Jose make me feel like a family member. And his dog Toby is so smart and sweet. I can go on and on with the virtues of Casa Jose and its people and I feel still fall short.
I love this place. Clean, quiet and safe. Great are near the Plaza de la revolución and the opni bus estación.
jose and the guys were the nicest cuban people we ve met during our trip! always helpful and careful, offered us great breakfasts and hospitality, tips for main attractions and how to make the best of our Cuban experience! very close to the plaza de la revolucion, in a very safe and quiet zone, clean house, nice roof terrace + always a smile on their faces!
We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children and stayed in Havana at Jose's casa particulare with Jose and his lovely family. We loved Cuba, especially Havana and Jose with his wonderful hospitality, warmth and caring made this such a wonderful experience for all of us. He has a lovely home, is so hospitable and couldn't do enough for us, always with a big smile on his face - honest and genuine people. He always went the extra mile e.g. snacks on New Years Eve, special extras for breakfast such as rice and beans, scrambled eggs and even made a meal for the children one evening when we were going out to Tropicana. Lovely people to spend time with discussing the uniqueness and fascination that is Cuba. We all agreed we want to return and would only stay with Jose. Jose and his family rock - missing you already.
What can I say, it is like being at your own house , friendly, very informative, knowledgeable and very clean, José casa es tu casa . I wish that I could explain my stay at José house with a short video.
Great place & great host. I would stay here again.
Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühl bei den sehr freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern. Das Zimmer war prima, das Frühstück köstlich. In unseren drei Wochen Rundreise auf Kuba haben wir hier den besten Kaffee bekommen! Sehr zu empfehlen :)
Vielen Dank und liebe Grüße aus Alemania (Berlin) von Marvin und Sophie
Très accueillant, soucieux de nous faire connaître les bons coins et d'éviter les arnaques. Possibilité de parler en anglais, français, allemand. L'appartement est très moderne. Un super petit déjeuner pour 5 Cuc.
José was a great host. He was very helpful, provided very useful local information, and prepared a great breakfast for me each day. He arranged transportation from the airport and to my take off point on my third day, and everything went very smoothly. Definite thumbs up.
