4) Casa Señora Tania

Two large, comfortable rooms under the roof of a magnificent house, opposite Starbien, one of the finest paladars in the Vedado. Don’t forget to admire the lovely details in the balcony. Excellent breakfast with the best guava batido you will find in Havana. If you don’t know where to spend your evening, ask because here they always know where you should go.
