    Great experience! It was the first time we booked a hostal and it was amazing! Staff is awesome! They made our life easy and comfy when for example booked our taxis and received us late at night. They also guaranteed that my eleven years old daughter had chocolate powder in the morning and also added some cupcakes in the breakfast to celebrate my husbands anniversary. By the way, the whole breakfast is delicious! Small details that made all the difference. To finalize, location is fantastic. Really close to most of the main attractions in Havana. Highly recommend!

    Best spot in Old Cuba

    This place was perfectly located and I WILL be back. Hostess was amazing and easy to deal with. Wifi was great and one place it actually works. Had a mild malfunction while we were there but out of ones control. We stayed in the double bed room which is right at the top of the property, stairs are steep but they carried our luggage up for us which was a great bonus. Room was well maintained and I can’t fault a thing including the breakfast which had a great variety. We added extra nights.

    Hostal Los Villanueva is a delightful place to stay in Havana. The staff—-Rose, Elias, Carlos—-are all gracious and helpful in every way. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a delicious welcome cocktail—a rum concoction inside of a coconut! Our room was fine, with all the amenities that we needed. The hotel has an outdoor sitting area on three of the four levels, which we greatly enjoyed! Our room was on the third level of the hotel. Right outside our door was a lovely outdoor sitting area with a table and swinging chair. Then, up a spiral staircase was a beautiful rooftop sitting area with a little bar. It was a great place to be as the sun was setting—-gorgeous views of the Capitol building and the surrounding area and neighborhoods as the sun goes down. We loved that!! The hotel is about a 15-minute walk from Calle Obispo, the main tourist street. It’s only about a five-minute walk to the water and to the San Jose artesian market. The hotel is centrally located in Old Havana, and it’s easy to walk to all the sights. A highlight of our stay at the hotel was the delicious breakfasts that we were served each morning—-eggs, cheeses, fresh fruits, breads, fresh fruit smoothies, and more!!I highly recommend this charming hotel in fascinating Havana!!
