Casa Novo Guest House
Ranked #102 of 702 Havana B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2011

Nicolas and his wife are both excellent hosts. Their casa is a charming colonial building in Centro Habana. The street might not look the best, but we felt safe walking around. They both speak good English which was very helpful in Cuba. They welcome our questions about places to see, things to do, gave excellent recommendation on casas in other towns. Their breakfasts and dinners were very generous and in Cuba, they said it's a tradition to serve too much food rather than too little. 4 our us stayed at Casa Novo during the trip and would definitely recommend it.

If you stay in Havana for some days and you are looking for a handy casa particulare then you should stay at Casa Novo Guest House.
The owner couple is very friendly, hearty and open-minded. They are very interested in making conversation and exchanging experiences. As the couple is very keen on cooking, it's a pleasure to order the dinner at this Casa. The house is situated in Havana centro and thus Havana vieja and Vedado are easily accessible.

Just a perfect Casa! Book it...maybe today? :-)

I stayed with Dr. Porro and his family for a week in Havana last month. They have a very nice house with the colonial style. Besides the rooms are very comfortable and well...I already checked above that they fulfill the requirements of a nice hostel, what I liked the most was the staff. Dr. Porro and his family all speak english (which is not very common in Cuba) and this helps you a lot. They are very homely, I received all kind of advices about Havana and Cuba, and good recommendations of houses like this in other parts of the country, etc. You can also have breakfast and a traditional cuban dinner with the family´s recipe for reasonable prices (loved it). I was travelling alone but didn´t feel like it ,I really enjoyed staying with them, I hope you do too.

Nice place in perfect walking distance to most of the sights in central Habana. Nicolas speaks English and can arrange almost everything for you. So just go there, enjoy the food and experience Cuba!

Casa Novo is very close to the City Center, most sights are in walking distance. The guestroom is beautiful, with nice bathroom, air con and fridge. Guests can also linger in the hall in lovely rocking chairs or in the dining room. The hosts speak English fluently and are very helpful concerning anything you need and want to know about travelling and living in Havanna and Cuba. The food is great and lovely prepared. Appropiate charges for accommodation and meals. Great place!
