Residencia Santa Clara is not your typical hotel, or casa particular for that matter. Although you will find the same warmth that most Cuban hosts offer, the building, the service, and the experience is different. We are an exceptional example of design and modern architecture within the constraints of Old Havana, you will be amazed by the murals and quirky solutions found throughout the building.

The hotel staff were the best part of our stay by far. They were so helpful in aiding us to navigate currency exchange and activities. We spent multiple nights just hanging with them over some beers in the lobby. The food at the hotel was some of the best we had in Havana and even better priced than many of the touristy places. We looked forward to the included breakfast every day. We highly recommend the 3 hour combo tour (1 hour drive in a convertible + 2 hours of walking) with hotel staff Liber. We learned so much about the history and culture of Cuba, it was amazing. The room was certainly nice enough for us. Only comments / areas for improvement are there is almost no counter space, and the bathroom facilities are very bare-bones. There is no proper (i.e., to the ceiling) door on the bathroom so you don't really have any privacy if you're sharing the room with someone. Also note that Old Havana does not always feel very safe to foreigners.

The staff are amazing. They are extremely helpful and just great people. This includes everybody from security guards to chefs to bar staff. Our time in Havana would not have been as memorable had it not been for these wonderful people. The food is fantastic. Would definitely recommend the lobster. The rooms and views are as pictured. My only complaint is that it can be hard to see when putting on make up if the windows aren’t open so maybe a make up light would help. Across the road is a blue door and a lady there does gel nails. She takes a long time but does a fantastic job at a good price. Everything is close and walking distance. Would highly recommend staying here.

Really nice house, good breakfast, good location. High quality room / bathroom. Staff was very friendly. Unfortunately WIFI did not work properly in the room, but worked fine in the reception. Booking website had some issues with iphone, but staff helped out.

This is a very comfortable, clean and friendly place to stay in Old Havana, just 3 blocks from Plaza Viejo. The staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. They arranged taxis, changed money and made restaurant suggestions and reservations. I highly recommend it.

We can not thank the staff enough for their efforts in hospitality. From the time we arrived to helping booking trips and tours. We enjoyed their rooftop patio, their food and their smiles. They made our cuban experience spectacular.

I wish I could give more stars!!!!! This was truly a remarkable experience and I am SO honored that we had the opportunity to stay at The Residencia! Julia, Serguey, Amin, Liber and the entire staff made my husband and I feel so special and right at home! I'm not sure if I can express my immense gratitude in a limited character count but I will try! Residencia is right in the heart of Old Havana and was conveniently located to explore everything on our list. The hotel is so lovely and full of culture from the friendly staff to the beautiful art to the handmade furniture--everything was just WOW. The food, coffee and drinks were amazing and convenient to have right at the B&B, we even took advantage of having a night cap on the roof top almost every night when we'd return from a day of adventure. We felt so safe and cared for by the Residencia team and we cannot wait to return back to Cuba and will certainly be staying here when we visit again!
