Casa Karlita in Havana is a very charming colonial place to stay. It's located close to landmarks of Havana. Karlita and her co-workers are very friendly. Karlita is very open and helpful person. Moreover she is a source of knowledge about the city and the country. Excellent starting point.

WOWZA! I don't even know where to begin... I booked this casa last minute and I must have incredible luck because this place was awesome! Karlita and her staff were very welcoming and right off the bat I felt like they were apart of my family. It is in a great location, has lots of character, the food was very flavorful and fresh (delicious fresh fruit, freshly Squeezed juices, eggs cooked to perfection,etc), everything was very clean and tidy, and the customer service was excellent! Karlita and her team really went above and beyond for us and even set up taxis for us, told us all the best attractions and even taught me some Spanish! Spread the word about this casa!!

Karlita was extremely welcoming and gave us great tips for exploring Havana and the city. The rooms were very clean and the air conditioner worked very well. The location is around the uni which is good for some more local / grungy bars, restaurants and clubs. Old Havana is only a $1 American car trip away. Highly recommended!
we booked ostel one month in advance. We arrived the first night and no room was available for us. The owner, Karlita, broght us to another casa particulare, that did not have the private bathroom in the room and that wasn't properly cleaned. THe day afer we wnt back to Karlita's. the room was fine, the staff very nice and helpful (expecially Maria Luisa). Breakfast was a way too expensive (5cuc) and you can get the same breakfast at the restaurant just downstairs for only 1 CUC!! The last night we came back to Havana, Karlita didn't have the room as she assured. We had to go and look for another aparment at 9pm.

Casa Karlita is a big surprise of our trip to Havana. It is clean and beautiful. In particular, the owner Karlita speaks very fluent English and is so warm. She gave us many useful suggestions and told us interesting stories. We enjoy the stay there very much. It is close to Havana University, and takes 4-5CUC to old city by taxi.
