Well located in Havana Centro. The highlights are within a walking distance range. Rigoberto is really very nice person, he tries to do his best. Good e-mail contact with him and his family which is not typical for Cuba. Let him to help you - his advice is very valuable. It is not possible to compare his rooms to European...

First of all, we liked the house's location, closed to Havana Vieja and Centro.. And then... I can say I am very happy we met Rigo and he had place in his house for me and my 2 friends. The stay there was excellent. Not only the huge and tasty breakfast was one great point there, but also the stories...

We spent the first three nights of our two-week visit in Havana, as well as the last night before our flight back. Rigo's house was the first thing we saw in Cuba, and we must say the first impression was great! :) He is very well connected with the other casas around the island, and we strongly suggest you talk...

Rigo was a great host. He helped us find places to sleep at as we were a big group, told us what we could do, which bus we could take, indicated the good and bad places, where it was cheaper and more authentic... The neighbours were just as welcoming, the rooms were clean, the prices correct, the neighborhood agreable. All...

Before our trip to Cuba we made sure we had made our reservations at least in the major city of Habana as we were spending 3 weeks here for the New Year 2016. We exchanged several emails where he continued to write to me that my booking for 3 weeks for 2 people was indeed confirmed. The day we arrived...

We couldn't stay with Rigo and Raisa, as they were fully booked for New Year's Eve, but Rigo was fantastic about emailing back and forth till he found us a good nearby place (Deisy's House). Our family of four was comfortable and enjoyed Deisy's. She's hospitable and organized, and made a great breakfast. Clean and very central for Habana Vieja,...
