Guillermo and the rest of his lovely family were great hosts and were happy to let us in late after an evening of live music in Santiago. Their house is just outside of the centre of town, and has a lovely patio/balcony overlooking the neighbourhood. Great breakfast is available.
Staying with Guillermo and his familie was wonderfull. He speaks good English and is more than helpfull. Also grandma - who did not speak English at all - is a fantastic and lovely persoon who cooks like a professional chef. The room is nice and clean and the house has an amazing terrace. Guillermo arranged a tour around the city which was perfectly planned. We highly recommend staying with them. Thanks!
Nice room on a good location. Guillermo was very friendly and his english is good. He also had a lot of good information to help us on our travel.
Typical Cuban warm welcome. Host speaks good English, friendly people with good room and breakfast.
Very friendly family, clean room. Very sweet grandmother.
Guillermo is always helpful and knows the right people for private tours. Diosa has real good authentic food. (Try the Pollo or Huevo).
Good location and good service.
Nice house close to the centre of Santiago. Guillermo and his familuy are very sweet, breakfast was great! The room is a bit small and the airco noisy, but is was ok for us.
We actually did not stay at this casa, because of an personal accident, the owner could not host us. But he had arranged an alternative, perfect stay at the same conditions.
Sehr freundlicher Empfang. Guillermo spricht fließend Englisch und gibt gute Tipps. Das Haus liegt wenige 100 m vom Zentrum entfernt . Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten, die Uferpromenade und der Hafen sind zu Fuß gut erreichbar. Das in einer Nebenstraße gelegene Haus ist gepflegt. Das Zimmer ist relativ klein, aber liebevoll ausgestattet. Es verfügt über 1 Doppel- und 1 Einzelbett, Klimaanlage, Ventilator, Kühlschrank (mit Minibar) und TV. Das Bad ist klein, aber alles sehr sauber. Frühstück (5 CuC/P) und Abendessen (Hühnchen und Schwein 7,50 CuC/P bzw. Fisch 10 CuC/P) sehr lecker und von allem reichlich. Das Essen wird auf der kleinen überdachten Terrasse eingenommen, von wo aus man einen schönen Blick über die Stadt bis hin zu einer entfernten Bergkette hat. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen.
We stayed 1 night in Guillermo's colonial house. Although the room is quite small, the house is lovely with a big garden with banana trees, living room & terrace overlooking Santiago de Cuba. Also the location is very good with a 2 min walk to the Cathedral. Guillermo picked us up at the bus station and helped us with all our arrangements.
