This Brina Hostal has the best host ever - Sergio! The first time my girlfriend and I visited Sergio’s place was three years ago. That time we stayed at casa particular in Calle Luz. Sergio arranged everything for us, from taxis to casas in other cities we visited. We stayed at his house for 5 days. This year we invited to Cuba also our family and wrote to Sergio. This time he put us in his Brina Hostal. We each had our bedroom with aircondition and private bathroom. We stayed there for 5 days and during this time they changed our linen. Breakfast was abundant: we ordered one, but ate four (however it is true we don’t eat much for breakfast). The location is also great. Plaza Vieja is just around the corner as well as many other sights. We actually used transportation only for Playas del Este and La Cabana fort, everything else we visited on foot. Sergio proved himself to be the best host yet again.. He arranged taxis, helped us with our phone, he even went to the pharmacy for us. If you want to experience a bit of proper Havana’s everyday life with all its charm (and its quirks), I strongly recommend Brina Hostal.
Sergio was an excellent host, so we really felt at home. He had a lot of useful information. Sergio gracias por todo. The location is great for exploring Havana Vieja and its surroundings. The room was clean with air conditioning and the breakfast was delicious
When I arrived to Cuba I lost my luggage. So I arrived to Sergios doorstep with only a backpack in my hand. From that point on he helped me with everything. He told me when and where to call and pick up my lost luggage, the transportation and a lot of good advise.
The house it self was in the old town and close to harbor so it never got too hot in side. Same time everything is close by bars restaurants sights shops..
The rooms were airy clean and comfortable. And it is one of the few houses that have wifi. You still need to buy the internet card to use it as everybody does, but it is very comfortable to have it in your room.
The breakfast was big and delicious with eggs fruits bread rolls and coffee or tea.
I booked my stay for only two nights but due to lost suitcase I had to stay longer. Sergio organised everything without any inconvenience for me.
He also helped me with my next destination. The transportation and a place to stay.
So of course for my last day in Havana I went back to Hostal Brina. It felt like going back to my own Cuban family.
I would definitely recommend this place to everyone!
The owner is a great guy, helped me plan the rest of my trip in detail and with great insights. The house was also in a great location and the rooms and bathroom were very clean. Also one of the few houses that has wi-fi in the house (you still need to pay for a card, but it's a great solution!)
Sergio and Miriam have lovely rooms to rent in a separate house (they live nearby and are very easy to contact via a telephone in the house), in Havana Old Town. The room and private bathroom were very clean, and we had access to a kitchen, dining and lounge room. The room has very good air conditioning. A large breakfast is available for 5CUC each, consisting of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juice, coffee, bread rolls, eggs and condiments. Sergio and Miriam are very friendly and hospitable. They were available to organise transport as well as accommodation out of Havana which was very helpful. The room is well located minutes walk from all the main plazas and restaurants. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again!
