Casa PRISCA (upper photo) is located in Vedado across the street
from our Casa Manuel.
Bottom photo shows Casa Manuel as seen from Casa Prisca.
In Cuba a Casa Particular (Private homestay or Bed & Breakfast)
would seldom rent more then 2 rooms. Small traveller groups of
about 6-8 persons frequently rent four rooms both Casas: Manuel und Prisca.
You'll be welcomed and taken care of here by a musician's family:
Prisca ist a music teacher, her husband plays percussion.
They have two children: both musicians. But do not worry: you'll sleep well.
Guest is King and no music is played at home at night or in the afternoon.
Very nice and friendly hosts, clean room and perfect area.
We have stayed one week there.

Cool location, quiet neighborhood, easy to get to the center of the old and new Havana,
very friendly hosts, Prisca speaks very good English, so no problem with communication.
We had a separate entrance and a small apartment
(terrace, bathroom, living room and bedroom). Tasty breakfast. We recommend

At Prisca and Raul you are going to feel well, because they are very friendly and helpful.
I was very pleased with Casa Prisca. It is well located (near the Plaza de la Revolution) and a
small supermarket is also there. All in all, I spent six good days there. I really can recommend this casa. Habitación muy bonita con gente sincero!
[Norbert, Germany, December 2016]
Although we are a long time back again in Germany, I do not want to miss to
inform you that we were very pleased with the Casa Prisca and the family is just as
nice and warm as is also reflected the reviews on your website.
We were also delighted by the quiet location

The first stop of a three week trip to Cuba was the Casa Prisca.
The airport pickup somehow not work well, but we have made it anyway.
The first breakfast was a huge surprise because it was so much and so good and so overwhelming.
It was also our first tourist-Cuban breakfast.
Because we are vegetarians, we had in restaurants often great difficulty with the food but with Prisca & Raúl
we could order excellent meatless dinner. We have also received the first information about the Cuban everyday life and
beyond, but unfortunately, unfortunately, even though they are a musicians family, we've never heard music.
For Prisca has a Hungarian folk song sung to our great surprise - in Hungarian.
She learned it from Raúl, who has spent some time in Hungary.
We could leave a few of our things with them and pick up at the end of the trip, which was nice.
[Anna & Hedvig, Vienna, February 2015]
I did not feel at the Villa Prisca as a stranger. The owners were very polite,
nice and helpful. Therefore, I would rent this Casa again at any time during a stay in Havana.
Very nice casa!
Habitación muy bonita

The goal of my trip this year was less the tourist
attractions of Havana, which to a large extent I know from my previous trips,
but rather learning more about the country and its people and developing existing contacts
and adding new ones. From this point of view this trip was a great success.
I felt very comfortable at Casa Prisca . The accommodation and the breakfast at Casa Prisca reflected
exactly my idea. For me, everything was just perfect. The atmosphere and helpfulness of my hosts
was outstanding. Only by lack of Spanish on my part the family contact was somehow
limited, but there were no problems to communicate with Prisca in English.
My hosts worked very hard to fulfill my extra wishes, for example, by providing a place to
study with my private Spanish teacher, giving hints of restaurants nearby, next CADECA office etc.
I would like to leave a positive comment on your website, but have not found the correct
category in www.holacuba.de. I could reccommend the Casa Prisca for both families as well as
individuals. However, one useful thing to have in the future would be a map of the area.
In the city, through its design, it is not difficult to find the way quickly.
It will certainly not be my last visit to Cuba and to this Casa.

We were 11 days in Casa Prisca and have felt very comfortable there without even speaking Spanish.
Prisca is wonderful and has the best recommendations for restaurants. Towels and bed linen were all
changed every few days and the breakfast was very good (fruit salad, scrambled eggs, toast, jam, coffee).
We liked the music in the house. Three afternoons we had live music under the premise that they
do not disturb :-) If we return to Cuba, we like to come back to Casa Prisca.
[Ulrike & Christopher (UK), April 2014]
We found it super nice.
The house is great, very pretty and very well maintained, the breakfast was delicious with
fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, toast, coffee and hot milk, the rooms are airy and beautifully
decorated, fresh sheets and towels were of course;
The large covered porch with the old wooden rocking chair is the most beautiful place inviting to
converse with a glass of rum exchanging impressions.
We particularly liked the family, which is very sophisticated and helpful.
The landlady speaks good English, and her husband and her son did their best to understand our
Since we are particularly interested in music, it was great that we found ourselves
"directly at the source"".
Prisca is a musicologist and her son is a percussionist, so that we took with him professional
classes and could learn a lot about the rhythms of Cuba and practice them, too.
All in all, there we spent two very nice weeks there.
[Viola, Berlin, Germany, Januar 2012]
I felt almost at home with Prisca and Raul. There is not only a delicious breakfast
on the coffee table but, whoever wants it, an encouraging interaction with this
family of musicians and other guests. The apartment is located in a very quiet
You feel secure behind safe doors and also thanks to the alerted dog.
And as I manageed to catch a tangible common cold, Prisca provided for very motherly
care with even hot soup and vitamin tablets included. A great life and living there.
