I finally made my dream of visiting Cuba a reality. Casa Petronila made it even more enjoyable with their charismatic owners, their personalized attention and family treatment. The place is impeccable and "Dona Petronila" takes care of every especial detail for you to be "at home" in her place. I will definitely GO BACK! William a High School Principal from...

My original booking at another residence was delayed thanks to being trapped in Fort Lauderdale airport during the shooting (a lengthy story!). However, my original host managed to book me in here for 2 nights and I enjoyed my stay so much I extended it for another two more. Lovely welcoming family and despite my basic Spanish, I formed a...

Very good room and 5 star breakfast (the coffee!!!!) at the house of the very nice Petronella y Rosabel. In a quiet place in Vedado, close by 23th. The bed is very good quality, the rooms quiet and clean. The terras has a lot of plants. The appartment is protected from noise and other influences by a lot of trees.

I have absolutely no regrets about staying at this house! Petronila and her daughters made our experience very hospitable. They always made sure we were fed and helped us to plan our activities in Havana. I felt apart of the family even though I didn't speak Spanish; I was like a son in their presence. They will source taxis to...

“Most people book with them through Casa de Ana Maria, because she's incredibly popular and doesn't have enough space. Tell Ana Maria your needs (single bed, double bed, etc.) and you'll have whatever you need at Casa Petronila.”
