Maite and the Casa staff (Teresa, Jorge and Caesar) were all amazing, going out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our time in Havana. The rooms were clean and comfortable - air conditioning and hot showers. Teresa prepared a fabulous cuban breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and great coffee. Jorge and Caesar were on duty over night to ensure we were safe.

I stayed here for a week with my brother and sister, each of us in our own air-conditioned rooms. The casa was very clean and very charming, in a great location in Old Havana. Maite, Gelina and Teresa were extraordinarily kind and helpful to us - answering questions, helping us arrange transportation, attending to everything we needed. I can't recommend it highly enough, and will definitely stay again on my next visit to Havana.

To be fair we didn't stay at House Damaris & Yor. Yor invited us back for a coffee and to help us in booking a classic car daytrip to Viñales. Yor was a fantastic and enthusiastic guide with excellent command of English vs. our embarrassing lack of Spanish, who clearly loves his city. He gave us 2 hour walking tour around Habana Viejo. He showed us all the main sites as well as some out of the way places to shows us the 'real' Havana. All along the way pointing out suggestions for bars cafes restaurants to try during our visit. By the end of the tour he brought us back to his newish and quaint B&B for coffee and put us in touch with a driver for next day. Yor is a delight and have us a very good overview of the old town and recommendations. The B&B looks lovely, very centrally located and I imagine he and Damaris would be perfect hosts.

Casa Compostela is a wonderful retreat and a great home base for those interested in the sights and life of Havana Vieja. If you want to truly experience the flavor of Havana, you must stay in the old part of town. The casa is clean, with simply, but adequately appointed rooms. There were probably 6 rooms in total, so be aware that you will probably not be the only guest. But the rest of the tourists, and Maite, who manages the property, make this place vibrant and interesting. You can hear stories, get the scoop on the best places to eat, or go dancing, you can ask for insights on the Cuban way of life. If you can - ask for a room overlooking the street. They have small balconies which are perfect for people watching at any time of the day. There are also at least two rooms with no windows to the outisde, and those can get stuffy without the AC. We rented 3 rooms alltogether, hence the experience with the different options. We did not try the house breakfst, but there are plentiful options nearby, and the most recommended is the fruit cart that is parked on the nearby corner. Fresh fruit for pennies a piece is the best on a hot Havana morning.

Best location, comfortable and clean rooms. Breakfasts were delicious. All the casa personel were helpful. It was good to find a casa owner who knows fluently English. If one day we will travel to Havana again, this casa will be our first choice
