This is an authentic 100 years old Spanish colonial house with spacious dining&living room, 5 meters high wooden ceilings, columns with arches, high doors with stained glass, colorful mosaics and the BEST-so close to the ocean, Old Havana/Havana Vieja and Vedado.

Interaction with guests

Havana is a city of senses.
There are colors, lights and exquisite architecture for your eyes, exuberant music for your ears, exotic food and fruits for your taste and so much of arts and culture for you sixth sense...
Our mission is to help you feed your senses in the vibrant city of Havana.

Besides offering you the experience of staying in a typical colonial house and in a unique location close to everything you want to see in Havana, we are want to give our guests the opportunity to see the real Havana-its unique architecture and history, meet Habaneros, and most importantly discover the rich cultural life of Havana, which usually stays completely hidden for the tourist. Galleries, cafes, clubs, discos are getting more and more with the changes happening in Cuba right now.

Ulises, who is going to meet you and who speaks English and of course Spanish is our live cultural guide for Havana-ask him for the ongoing cultural and artistic events in the capital and have a look at the events calendar he is going to prepare and hang for you every week in the house.

As our mission is to promote contemporary Cuban art, we will also exhibit selected artworks of Cuban painters, photographers and other artists in Casa Habana Senses. So you will live surrounded by history and art and if you like something you can buy it too.

We have also prepared for you a map with the best city walking trips that you can make starting from the house. Just follow the lines in different colors and the explanations on our map and you will be able to discover by your self the best parts of Havana.

We will not only recommend you best restaurants to try authentic Cuban food. We want to also give you the opportunity to taste the fresh exotic seasonal fruits of Cuba. You know Mango, Avocado, Papaya, Pineapple, Bananas, but you never tried the best of these you can find in the Caribbean. Have you heard of Mamey, Nispero, Chirimoya?

Thanks so much. We all really enjoyed our stay and the house lived up to our expectation. Thankyou to Ulyses for his hospitality and advice, and Theresa and Rayna for the amazing breakfasts. We had a fantastic holiday in Cuba.

The location is very good. It's a 10 minute walk to Old Havana and less than that to El Malecon. The hosts Ulises and Teresa were wonderful. Breakfast at the terrace was very good. The rooms are confortable and each have AC and private bathroom. We had a great stay.

We did not meet Rayna and Oscar but the hosts, Ulysses and Teresa are wonderful. Ulysses made sure our taxi drivers are safe and talk with them before us hop in. Location is perfect for a walking distance to Old Havana downtown. Also breakfast was served at rooftop!

Loved staying in this historic house. Rooms were as described and included air conditioning (a wonderful bonus after a hot day in the sun). Rayna and Oscar were very easy to communicate with and helped us secure drivers for a few excursions we did. Breakfast was also delicious and very filling. Would absolutely stay here again if we found ourselves back in Cuba!
