We stayed already for the 3rd a time with Yamir and his wife Lula. Clean rooms and clean private bathroom, good working air conditon, a refrigrerator and 2 great hosts. Any information you need or good advice,- Yamir will always assist. La casa Yamir is right in the heart of old Havana and an ideal location to walk the city.... More

Yamir was welcoming and helpful. I arrived without a reservation and he was able to accommodate me at last minute. I stayed in the backroom 2 nights and then the front. Both were comfortable. The location is one block off the main walking street of Obispo and about halfway between the Capitol and the main sites in Old Havana. Yamir... More

Overall great experience at yamir's. He was very helpful, and got anything we needed for us. Situated a block from the main touristy Street. Breakfast was great, eggs, fruits, milk, great coffee too. Something that my friends and I weren't expecting from a casa particular.

Situated in the heart of Havana Vieja Casa Yamir is within short walking distance of most of the museums and attractions in the area. The Casa itself is clean and welcoming and run by an extremely friendly and helpful couple. Yamir speaks very good English which was essential for me as I only have basic Spanish. He was more than...

I loved how close the Casa is to the exciting streets of Old Havana and loved the breakfasts. Yamir and his wife are super friendly and Yamir speaks great English which was great for me since my Spanish is beyond laughable. There was a great room for me and a great room for my 2 friends also. I will be... More

They say that one's house is an extension of one's personality. Casa Yamir is both Yamir and Yula, clean, neat, organized, efficient. Our hosts were very helpful in providing insights into Cuban life, which was our primary interest! Never lacking in suggestions and responses to our questions, Yamir and Yula were very candid in sharing information. My girlfriend and I... More

You can't beat Casa Yamir for location in Havana Vieja nor can you beat Yamir for information on Havana or Cuba. The casa is run in partnership with Jula his wife who prepares a delicious breakfast of dinner if required - I can recommend both for authentic Cuban cuisine. The casa itself is simple, very clean but could do with... More

We ended up in Yamir's house for one night as a chain reference - all other casas were taken and we wanted the location. The casa is in the heart of Havana Vieja and this is as local as it gets! Yamir is very nice and speaks good English. While his place is clean, it is a set-up you want... More
