All must stay here while visiting Havana!!!
A boutique hotel in the heart of Old Havana, Hostal Balcones Muralla truly feels like home. From the moment we arrived our gracious host Harold took care of every little detail. The following morning the entire staff waited on our every move. Christopher was most enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the whole world and including Canada! Highly recommend this hotel to anyone in the world who is thinking of staying in Old Havana!

Very Good 8.0
old world charm., but may not be enough for some
If you want a flavour of every day Habana life than stay in this lovely hostal. It's located in the Historic Centre, but unlike those in Europe etc, many surrounding buildings are derelict and the streets show lack of investment. That's not to say it's run down but it's genuine. Location is great, walking distance to Capital, and Plaza Vieja. Also great is the team running the place, very helpful. They showed great concern and were very helpful to me as I brought a tummy bug from Mexico. However, a word of caution , it's an old building in a living neighbourhood...there are no double grazed window, in fact no windows at all, so you get to hear the noise of Habana. Also if you are on the 1st floor you will hear noise from the bar if they hold impromptu late night partying/drinking. All this has to be balanced against the charm of the old building with its antique pieces and the warmth and helpfulness of the staff.

WOW! Amazing Place to stay!
I just don't have the words! Amazing stay in Havana. This hotel is amazing, very well kept up, amazing breakfasts, and super easy location in the middle of old Havana for walking to the top sites! The staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make this stay very special for my fiancee and I. We were celebrating his birthday and they arranged a cake, party and special private dinner specially prepared in hotel for us. I just can't say enough about the staff and their friendliness, care and genuine happiness that we were staying there with them. Felt more like we were staying with friends, then a hotel vibe. When we return to Havana we will visit our home away from home at the Balcones Muralla! Request the Laudelina Suite!!!! Thank You to the entire staff for making this a trip to remember for a lifetime!

Hotel Balcones Murrella was both a surprise and a delight. Located in the very heart of Habana Vieja, it is steps from everything we wanted to do and see. North American travellers: don’t be alarmed by the lack of signage and the simple door with only a number on the Havana street. Ring the bell once...and you will be greeted warmly by charming staff members who will make your stay memorable. Chris brought our bags up the steep tiled staircase... and into a grand old room evoking Havana’s rich colonial history. The office and bar has 20 foot ceilings, and doors opening on two sides to balconies where you can sit right over the bubbling hustle of life in this vibrant city. A welcoming drink was served, and we were taken to our comfortable rooms and then shown up a series of ancient stairs to a rooftop terrace. Sit up there, meet the eclectic guests from around the world, and sip the hotel’s signature drinks from an eclectic collection of elegant teapots and cups. We stayed four days. Breakfast every day was perfect. Made to order, elegantly served and fresh and delicious. But the very best part of our stay? The team: Chris

Great location and friendly staff.
Great location in the middle of Havana Vieja, walking distance from many sites and museums. Walking distance from many places to eat and have a drink. Very friendly and helpful staff. Onsite bar and restaurant. Every room has a balcony which is very nice.

Amazing stay, great location, incredible staff!
Really an amazing stay. The staff as a whole are all incredibly nice, really fun and interesting, and honestly people we considered friends when we left. The location is great, the rooms are roomy and comfortable, and the balcony is a great place to grab a delicious mojito (home-made) and enjoy the vibes of Havana. We can't wait to come back and visit Hotel Balcones Muralla again!

Fantastic hosts and good location
The hosts Christopher, Harry and Daniel were first class. They made us feel so welcome and their local and history knowledge was very impressive. The hotel location was good, a few blocks away from Plaza Vieja, El Capitolio and the tourist street Obisbo, making it a great central point. The rooms were comfortable, although it took a while to get hot water in the shower. The noise from the street below can disturb your sleep so remember to take ear plugs, but after a day or two you get used to it anyway - it's Havana! The breakfast was basic but delicious. Each day we had a full spread of fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables (and small selection of meats for the meat eaters). The hosts were very attentive and made sure that we had enough.

Boutique Casa in the heart of Old Havana
Amazing stay, most comfortable hostal in Havana. The atmosphere, decor, friendly staff made this stay most enjoyable. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the location is great very close to all the sightseeing spots. Great buffet breakfast and very relaxing to sit out on the balcony to take in the feel of Old Havana.
