Perfect location and warm environtment in Habana Vieja May 16, 2010
In a perfect location in Havana Vieja, close to Plaza Vieja, Chez Nous is owned by Gustavo, a famous radio speaker in Havana. There are two rooms available in a typical colonial style house. Rooms are perfectly in good shape and security is excellent because always there someone at home during all 24h. Friendly service and open for helping all the time.

Casa Chez Nous Dec 02, 2007
If you want to get a better feel of what Cuba is all about, staying in a Casa Particular is preferable over a 'normal' hotel. All hotels are state-run anyway in Cuba and the service and quality is nothing special (except maybe the all-inclusives in tourist enclaves like Varadero but we didn't get to see that).

Casas are controlled by the state so the price for a room is set (at the moment 30 CUC in Havana for a 2 person room). People with large houses use this as a way to supplement their income (but they are heavily taxed for the privilege!). For this, they are allowed to rent out maximum two rooms so all casas are the same in this aspect. Quality is controlled as well so you'll be sure to get a certain basic quality (look for the blue or green sign like a little pyramid outside that means that the casa is legal).

Chez Nous is one of the nicest casas we stayed in in Cuba, VERY centrally located just a stone's throw from the Plaza Vieja and a short walk from there to other Havana Vieja sights. You just can't get a better location for a Casa! Most casa are in Vedado outside of Havana Vieja but we wanted to stay in the old centre itself.

The Casa itself is a wonderfully dignified, run-down colonial style building, furnished in antiques. Rooms are huge with ceiling fans and TV, with a brand-new clean bathroom (shared by 2 rooms). For a small extra payment you get a perfectly adequate breakfast with fruit, coffee (hmmmm) eggs and bread. They will probably offer you dinner, too, but I've had far better dinner in other places so I'd skip that!

A small note: if you don't like cats, stay elsewhere! The Casa's two fat and very self-assured Siamese will made themselves at home in your room!

PS. The owner's neighbor also runs a Casa (name unknown) and she had a great little room on the roof of the building. If they can't put you up in Chez Nous, ask for this room.
