driver to exchange some money, make sure you have Euro and not Dollars because of bad exchange rate for Dollars. Our host from Casa 1932 was generous enough to show us where to change our money and sorting out a taxi for us back to the casa.
Havana city is just beautiful and the casa owner seemed very proud about the history of the place who even told us about the first Cuban jazz bands practicing in the house. As we had arrived hungry, the hostel owner was kind enough to get an awesome cook to whip us some coffee and lunch right away. The dinner was traditional Cuban and we happen to be seafood lovers enjoyed the serving. The Casa 1932 should truly be proud of its prime location as it is sited right in the thick of things in Centro Habana amongst the locals and it definitely gave us a pretty authentic Cuban experience. We were just a minute away from the beautiful Havana waterfront Melecon. While the Old Havana where old touristy spots are, was just 10 minutes away, a walk able distance. According to me, the location truly deserves its high rating, full marks.
The rooms were pretty decent and clean to give us restful sleep for our 3 days stay. The antique furnishings, comfort of the rooms, warmth of family and delicious meals made our stay worth a memorable experience. We had booked the Luis XV decoration double bed room although there is the two single beds room available, but it was worth the money we paid. We arrived at the room to find a double bed that was quite clean and nicely decorated room with antique furnishings, the private bathroom gave an option of hot and cold water both. My wife and I would both agree with the pleasing service offered by the casa owner.
The cleanliness and room size are truly amazing and worth the price (25 CUC- Cuba tourist currency). One thing that really concerned me and my wife was safety. Although havana is very safe this days and everybody are very friendly, it still felt a bit risky getting out of the rooms late evening. The food was just amazing as well as they served us some local dishes especially from the sea food menu. I would truly recommend Casa 1932 for its excellent location and the amazing accommodation and leaving aside the safety part (it is a feeling you will have all around havana), it is truly a little paradise.
