Hostal Aurora Reviews

Our stay in Cuba was unforgettable thanks to Nelson, Aurora and their family. There is no better way to get to know Cuba and Havana! No matter what you need, Nelson is the perfect man to talk to and he'll equip you with the map of Vedado and tips on how to save money in Cuba. For 20 days, we really felt like a part of the family. And they have the best food on island.

Hostal Aurora Reviews from the Web

Aurora and her family are wonderful hosts and lovely people.we extended our stay and stayed again on our return to Havana. Rene speaks fluent English which was great for us as my Spanish is rubbish! He even got up and took us to the airport at 3am! He gave us lots of valuable info and helped us plan our trip in Cuba and organise accommodation as Internet is scarce and slow in Cuba.our room was cleaned daily and for a small extra charge aurora prepared us a filling breakfast.

We booked to stay at Aurora's for two nights and ended up staying the whole 8 nights we had in Cuba!! The location in Vedado is fantastic, house & bed are comfortable but most of all, the hosts are wonderful people. They always had time to help you and they were full of advice about Vedado, Havana and Cuba. They can help you plan any day trips or onward travel plans anywhere in the country. Unfortunately my partner got food poisoning during our stay (definitely not from anything served at the guesthouse), however the care showed to us by Aurora and her son Rene was above and beyond the call of duty. I was sad to leave because we really were made to feel like part of the family! Highly recommended!! Muchas gracias Aurora, Nelson y Rene!!

We definitely had very good time staying at Auroras house. It is in a good neighbourhood next to John Lennons park. Aurora and her family are very nice and warm people. We didn't have any problems with the comunication as they speak English. When we arrived they gave us very useful information for our stay in Havana. The house is safe and we didn't have to carry our documents and all the money with us. If you are interested in scuba diving, just ask them :)

I was only here for a night, but the room had everything I needed and Rene was great in explaining (in English) where we were, what there was to do and the things to be careful of.

The house was really big and comfortable, we had a great big room for the four of us, with private bathroom as well.

We also could use the balcony, the atmosphere was nice.

Aurora was really nice, she help us a lot to plan our trip around Cuba.

Very safe and clean place to stay. Aurora and Rene speak English and they have good network so they can help you travel all around Cuba.

Customer review

This was our first place in Cuba, and Aurora, Nelson and Rene were terrific. Aurora was unbelievably considerate and caring, and Rene was really knowlegable and enthusiastic about making our stay as enjoyable as possible (both in Havana, and Cuba more generally).

The room was massive (so was breakfast, and tasty), and very light and airy. The shower was hot. The Vedado is a great part of Havana.

Jeffrey Anderson

We loved all about this place!!! If you are going to Havanna stay here you will not ever regret it. The most wonderful family that really makes you feel like its your home. They know everything that you need to know about Cuba and also helps you with everything, this family will forever stay in our hearts and mind!! Aurora, Nelsen and Renee and all the other friends that we met thank you so much for EVERYTHING lots of love to all of you !! XXXOOO//Marie, Amin, Neo, Shole & Mitra

Marie Zamayeri

Auroras place was very comfortable and welcoming and our hosts were friendly and helpful! For the non Spanish speaking traveler Auroras place is great because her son Rene speaks English perfectly and is full of interesting stories and information!

Petra Glad

Vedado is the best place to stay in La Habana. Aurora is lovely; she can help you to organize your trip.

Customer review


Many people travel without hotel to Cuba, they prefer to lodge in private houses because it's economic and it allows them to know the reality of the country. The rent of rooms in Cuba, is completely legal whenever the proprietors have got license to make it, this is our case The house is in the neighbourhood of Vedado, a central and residential area in the City of the Havana, Cuba. It is to so alone 750m of the hotels Melia Cohiba and Riviera. At 350m of the Avenue 23, and to alone 450m of the Malecon Habanero, famous in the whole world where you will be able to enjoy the breeze of the Caribbean sea.
The characteristics of the lodging are:

Double room with TV.
Private Bathroom inside the room
Conditioned air. Fan.
Tourist recommendations all over Cuba
Environmental family.
Attention in Spanish, Italian and English
The price for the room/night is 30 CUC (Cuban Convertible Peso)
The attention that you'll receive, you won't be able to compare it with the best hotel. For sure that you won't want to leave it.
