    I had a lovely stay at Casa Novo! Nicolas was very welcoming and accommodating and his Cuba travel tips (printed out and left in my room when I arrived) were really useful. Talking to him about history really added context and was a great way to start my trip. The fact that this house has been in Nicolas' family since the 1930's with all the original doorways, tiles and mahogany furniture gave me an up-close glimpse into the past. I only spent 1 night here but would stay longer in the future!

    Great house, great host and great service. I had an air-conditioned private room and bathroom with a fridge, where I could buy drinks from. The area felt very safe and the location was very good. The optional breakfast is a great deal. It almost felt like a hotel experience at times as Alberto kindly provided roomservice. He is also very helpful with anything regarding taxis and booking other trips if necessary. Look no further!

    Nicolas, his wife and staff run a very safe and welcoming Casa. Nicolas are aged and airport pick up which is really easy for me. There home is about 10 mins walk into more central old town Havana but we loved the contrast of being in a more lived in neighbourhood. The house is safe and secure and easy to get to lots of places to. Thanks for having us Nicolas and Rossi. Alex and Cath

    Could not have asked for a better place to stay. Nicolas was super friendly, knowledgeable and gave a good understanding of not only places to visit but also about culture and history. He also helped me in planning my almost month long trip in Cuba. He has reliable contacts all over Cuba which came in very handy as finding google/ internet is not that easy in Cuba. Highly recommend staying here. PS. The place is not in the middle of touristy Old Havana but a comfortable 10-12 mins walk away.

    My sister and I stayed at Nicholas's Casa Novo for two nights coming into Havana and two more nights leaving the city at the end of a long bike trip. We could not be more pleased. Nicholas is a very good and knowledgeable host, who speaks flawless English. Our room was clean and comfortable. There is a nice terrace upstairs. We had a large breakfast every morning. The Casa is a few blocks walk to the major sites, but we enjoyed the neighbourhood. Great restaurants around.

    Nicholas is a phenomenal host. Casa novo is a great place to begin your trip in Cuba since Nicholas can act as your personal travel agent. He has a network of contacts all around Cuba and his relationship with collectivo drivers means you get a better price than others in most cases. The place is about a 10 minute walk from the heart of Havana but there are also plenty of great places to eat around casa novo

    I had a great experience at this cute hostel. Alberto was fantastic and assisted me with everything, including taxis from and out airport. Room was very clean and it was cleaned and organized daily, had a simple but good breakfast there. The house is nice and peaceful, 10-15min walk to downtown. There are good restaurants around, recommend "Casa Miglis" just two blocks away.
