    Casa Purpura was in a great location, 10-15 minute walk from Calle Obispo and many central places. The room was very small, but clean and had our basic needs. Ivette, who owns the casa, was not there, but her mother, Daisy, and other staff were very helpful and friendly. Margarita runs the casa (cooks, cleans, helps with everything you need),...

    In the center of new Havana, close to the see. Very nice and friendly people trying to run a hotel in an impossible conditions of Cuba. Have to mention Armando who took us in his car to a tour of Havana. We learnt a lot and enjoy his companionship.

    This place is almost in the middle between Opispo street and Hamel street which are touristic place in Havana. To both place, it takes around 15~20 min by walk. To Malecon, it takes 5-10 min and to Casa de la Musica in Havana it takes 5 min. The place is quite safe place and you can find some park around...

    We stayed there with a group of 5, and we loved the hospitality from Ivette and Alejandro. The rooms were clean, the street is safe and it was very convenient. We stayed there 5 years ago, but still missing the days we had over there and we are still in touch with Ivette and Alejandro..

    Alejandro and Ivette provided an excellent home for us to stay in while we visited Cuba. They even helped organise our stay with their own contacts, which all provided the same great service throughout Valle De Vinales and Cienfuegos! They were also very helpful when we on the last days ended up sick after a bicycle accident. Nothing but warm...
