Pepe, Isabel, and their family were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed their lovely place. Rooms were spacious and clean, beds were comfortable, water was hot, food was excellent and plentiful, and the terrace was a nice place to relax. It's also walking distance to the historic city center. We don't know if Cuba has any truly non-smoking casas particulares, but...

It is a very very nice house. Good location. Friendly family. Great food. I really reccomend you to have dinner in the house, the food is good and rich, it is exactly like been in a small restaurant. Cienfuegos is pretty, but very small, with not much to do.

We spent 2 nights here and booked 2 rooms, one for me and my husband and one for our son. These rooms shared a small bathroom which was between the rooms. They were comfortable and tastefully decorated with all the usual amenities including minibar, safe, fan and air conditioning. Unfortunately the bed was uncomfortable as I could feel the springs....

The welcoming atmosphere of the place (thanks to the staff) and the splendid renovation of this historical building have made this place the best Casa Particular where I stayed during my two weeks stay in Cuba. In addition, unlike to most of the Casa Particulares in Cuba, the breakfast is here really fresh and tasty. Another good point is the...

We stayed only 1 night and our experience was positive although I have to say it is run more like a hotel than a classic casa (they even have a laundry service and are expanding to 2 more houses).
