About Us

We welcome you to experience Havana in our beautiful colonial house, Casa Brava. We are a family run boutique hotel that offers an authentic cuban experience.

We have completely renovated this eight bedroom two story home to a high standard of luxury and comfort. Working with local artisans, we have restored tiles and wood-work to its original 1910 splendor, while adding all modern conveniences. With a feel of a boutique hotel, our home offers comfort and convenience to make your visit to Havana enjoyable.

Each spacious room has soaring twenty foot ceilings and beautiful en suite bathrooms.

 

Our Casa

We have a fully modern kitchen and comfortable sitting rooms, terraces and a shady quiet back terrace.   After a day of site seeing, enjoy a massage in our private massage room or a cool cocktail by our private bar.

Your host, Lorelis and her staff are Havana natives and will welcome you warmly.  Casa Brava is in the beautiful neighbourhood of Vedado, a short drive to Old Havana.   Enjoy the many new and trendy restaurants within walking distance of the house or take a 10 minute cab ride to the famous old Havana with its many bars, clubs and restaurants.     No visit to Havana is complete without Cuban music, and a ride in classic cars.

The first thing you will notice is that this is a very safe and secure place, and the rooms are very clean. The meals served are wholesome and filling, and the air conditioning assures you of a good night’s sleep in a very comfortable imported bed and luxury linens.  The hosts go the extra mile in everything from arranging taxis not just out but also back again to ensure you get back safely.

Many people like to make Malecon one of their first stops. This famous pedestrian walkway was built in the early 20th century and is a wonderful place to stroll beside the waterfront. You’ll see people meeting to walk, talk, have coffee and generally enjoy the view of the ocean. It also serves as a parade route during festivals and you’ll want to spend at least one early evening watching the sun set from Malecon.

Old Havana

Old Havana is one place where you could spend your entire visit quite happily, particularly if you like to soak up the vibrancy of the Cuban culture. You can hang out at Calle Obispo and talk with the self employed entrepreneurs or investigate La Colmenita, an afterschool center that uses art and performance as tools for the social and personal development of students. You never know what you’ll see around the next corner in Old Havana, buildings more than 500 years old or a 21st century group of teens with a boom box. The Plaza de Armas is the site of the city’s foundation, a beautiful square surrounded by plants and flowers and a great place to rest your tired feet. Also in Old Havana is the Covento de Santa Clara, an impressive pre-baroque convent.

Havana is also home to some of the best musicians on earth. The Buena Vista Social Club is not the only source of jazz on the island, as you’ll see by all the up and coming artists you can watch and listen to at Casa del la Musica, or the house of music. Located on Galiano Street in Central Havana, this is a large club where you’ll also find the most popular salsa artists. Dance or just while away the hours listening to some of the best music you’ll ever hear.

Another site you’ll not want to miss is Capitolio, the former seat of the government before 1959, built in same style as the US capitol building in Washington, DC. It was built by the dictator Gerardo Machada, completed in 1929 and is now home to the world’s 3rd largest indoor statue, a bronze cast in Rome and entitled Statue of the Republic. The nearly 50 foot tall statue is covered in 22 caret gold leaf; Lily Valty, a Cuban woman, was the model but the artist was inspired by the Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena.

The Museo de la Revolucion, housed in the former Presidential Palace, is a great place to get an overview of Cuban history. You can learn about the battles against former dictator Batista and see Granma, the yacht from which Fidel Castro launched the last revolution as well as a tank used in the Bay of Pigs invasion.

There is no doubt if you want to see and experience the real Havana, then there is nowhere better to stay than Casa Brava Havana. You will really be in and amongst the lovely people who inhabit the city when you stay here. Casa Brava Havana is far more than a mundane bed and breakfast inn, it really is a tiny luxury hotel well disguised, where you will be made so welcome, and made to feel part of a large and very personal family, to whom nothing is too much trouble.
