Love is the reason of it all..
I fell in love with Cuba many many years ago – the music, the moves in salsa dancing, the colours, the Santeria religion, the beaches and the sea, the sun, the architecture, the smiles and the laughters of its people.
I fell in love with my husband Alberto not that many years ago and when we were talking about where we would live, Sweden or Cuba. We decided for the Historic Center in the Old Town of La Habana, having in mind the opportunity of a lifetime by starting a Bed&Breakfast business in the same neighbourhood.
Alberto and myself, we just love see the smile on our guest's faces when they sit on our rooftop terrace having breakfast, or when they are checking in to their suite or room, or when they say that they will come back to Casa Cuarteles next time they come to La Habana, Cuba. We just love happy guests!
So – at the end of the day – love is the reason of it all.
The story about Casa Cuarteles
Few places in Havana have such a unique and special location as Casa Cuarteles. In the heart of the historic center of Old Havana, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.
Casa Cuarteles is a 20th century building completely renovated in 2017-2018 welcoming guests from all over the world from 2019.
It's made by travelers for travelers. Our goal is to provide you with a place where you can relax, “re-energize” and prepare to fully enjoy your stay in Havana and Cuba.
Get around & the neighbourhood
The centric location allows you to experience all that Havana has to offer with ease – many guests never take a taxi during their stay here.
You will find restaurants, bars, cafes and art galleries - all first class. And as far as historical sites are concerned, they are all within your reach, on foot or by taking a bike-taxi.
Take the tourist bus to the playa Santa Maria for 5€ round-trip/person. The beach is ~40 minutes from central Havana and you pass some sights on the way.
The hosts - Lillevi & Alberto
We speak English, French, Italian and Spanish - and Swedish of course, being a mother tongue.
We will meet you during breakfast in order to help out with anything you might need.
We live just a short walk from Casa Cuarteles and you can always reach us with a phone call.
Come and stay with us at Casa Cuarteles - you are in for a treat!
