Located in a quiet street only a few minutes' walk away from the center of Holguin, El Balcon was the perfect ending to our trip. The owners, Iván and Eudelia, were super kind and made every effort to make us feel at home. The room was clean, comfortable and equipped with A/C, a mini-fridge and a private bathroom. The breakfast...

The breakfast was amazing and the view of the balcony is great as you can just watch the day to day life go by! The room was airy and clean. I'd return here if I went back to...

The casa is a short walk from the centre of Holguin and close to the Viazul bus stop. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable. It had a...

There were spacious and airy rooms, with en-suite bathroom and mini fridge. The breakfast spread was excellent. The owners Ivan and Eudelia are friendly and helpful but do not speak...

The location is very good - around the corner from the Viazul and minutes from city centre. The room we stayed in had air conditioning, hot water and a fridge - all amenities for...

When we arrived,we couldn't have been made more welcome, Although no English spoken by the older members of the family, their two nephew's are English spoken tour guides with a wealth of information and will do anything to help. I would recommend a stay at this casa particular to anyone.

“Both rooms are very quiet, and this from a light sleeper. We stayed in the first room near the kitchen which was comfortable. The back room had two double beds which I prefer for a toss and turn restless sleeper.”
