|"We stayed three nights at Casa Gallart, and were very impressed with both the home and the hospitality.
"We loved the neighborhood and location. It is an easy 20 minute walk into the heart of Santiago de Cuba. There are great restaurants nearby, which Pedro (who is fluent in English) recommended.
"The room was quaint and the architecture and decor had a very regal feeling. Pedro was an exceptional host, arranging for an early-morning taxi and making a point to see us off, even though the sun had yet to rise.
"The breakfasts were among our favorite, with the freshest fruit and bread, rich coffee and perfectly cooked eggs with fresh herbs.
"Casa Gallart is the whole package, and a real treat for anyone looking to escape the hectic atmosphere of Santiago!" LnP, Calgary, Canada 15.04.17, tripad visor
