I stayed at this casa particular just to run away from my busy business schedule. The owner was a great help on the do's and do not's in Havana after dark. Where to go and where to avoid. If you do not know Havana then you must stay at this place.You will not regret it. Its a very central location...

Last month I stayed at Casa Ray for the 10th visit. This casaparticular has declined over the past 2 1/2 years, because Rafael has moved out, and Ray is soon moving to Spain to live with his new husband. In the day time, the hosts take turns dropping in to the rental casa for a few hours per day, but...

I LOVED this place! It is decorated in Grandma/retro-kitsch and Ray himself is a doll. It is also comfortable and the breakfast is good. I suggest calling ahead to confirm the reservation.

Ray's is a great place. I have stayed there twice. I also checked out the other gay friendly options while in Havana, and Ray's is the best option in town. In relation to what suvariboy from Toronto has to say in his review (based on having spent enough time at Ray's place to see exactly how he does things): you...

I contacted Ray several times regarding our trip to Havana. We were coming from Varadero, needed a room for one or two nights, and were really looking forward to staying at his place. We'd read a couple of very good reviews, the area was good, and Ray seemed quite nice in the several e-mails that he sent to me. However,...

My partner and I first stayed at Ray's place, just for 2 nights, at the end of a trip to Cuba in spring 2007 (where we travelled around Cuba staying at lots of different places). Based on that experience we decided to go back to stay at Ray's for 2 weeks over Xmas 2008. We've seen quite a few casa...

Well located for walking everywhere was important to us. Casa Ray is very centrally located in a safe area of Downtown Centro of Havana, in an area densely populated by locals. The hosts are a gay couple who are on site 24/7 and who try to meet your every need. There are 3 large guest rooms. Decor strays toward the...
