old world charm., but may not be enough for some
If you want a flavour of every day Habana life than stay in this lovely hostal. It's located in the Historic Centre, but unlike those in Europe etc, many surrounding buildings are derelict and the streets show lack of investment. That's not to say it's run down but it's genuine. Location is great, walking distance to Capital, and Plaza Vieja. Also great is the team running the place, very helpful. They showed great concern and were very helpful to me as I brought a tummy bug from Mexico. However, a word of caution , it's an old building in a living neighbourhood...there are no double grazed window, in fact no windows at all, so you get to hear the noise of Habana. Also if you are on the 1st floor you will hear noise from the bar if they hold impromptu late night partying/drinking. All this has to be balanced against the charm of the old building with its antique pieces and the warmth and helpfulness of the staff.

WOW! Amazing Place to stay!
I just don't have the words! Amazing stay in Havana. This hotel is amazing, very well kept up, amazing breakfasts, and super easy location in the middle of old Havana for walking to the top sites! The staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make this stay very special for my fiancee and I. We were celebrating his birthday and they arranged a cake, party and special private dinner specially prepared in hotel for us. I just can't say enough about the staff and their friendliness, care and genuine happiness that we were staying there with them. Felt more like we were staying with friends, then a hotel vibe. When we return to Havana we will visit our home away from home at the Balcones Muralla! Request the Laudelina Suite!!!! Thank You to the entire staff for making this a trip to remember for a lifetime!
