Even before we arrived we were made to feel welcome. We phoned ahead to confirm when we would be arriving and they arranged for us to be met at the bus station. When we arrived the building was beautifully restored and the courtyard incredibly peaceful.
Location wise you could walk to the main square, the train museum and even the Che memorial - although it was always nice to come "home" after a long hot day of walking and sit in the cool courtyard and enjoy a glass of wine.
The hosts were friendly, welcoming and warm, but never intrusive. They also served us the best meal we had in Cuba. At one point we mentioned we were having difficulty finding replacement toothbrushes and sure enough 10 minutes later they appeared with a new one for each of us.
If ever you have the good fortune to visit Santa Clara (which is a must if you go to Cuba) then this place is the only one to stay at.
