My partner and I stayed at Elena's place for 4 nights in July. After reading great reviews on trip adviser the place certainly lived up to expectations. Our flight from Cancun was delayed 8 hours and we got in Havana very late. Elena was available to let us in and make us feel comfortable in her home straight away. Her... More

We were a group of 5 people staying at Elena's casa. The rooms were clean and spacious. There was a great selection of delicious food for breakfast everyday.

We stayed five nights at Elena´s home. Both rooms are comfortable and clean. Elena is such a nice person and helps you whereever she can. We loved her dog Dudu and the delicious breakfast which was served whenever we were ready. You can easily walk to Old Havana or take a cheap Taxi.

Very friendly reception and a good room. Plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from. Lots of help given with bookings in other towns in Cuba. She linked us up with a great and very reliable taxi driver who spoke good English, just as she does. They did all our laundry in one day at a minimum charge. It is a... More

It was a great stay at Maria's. She was away during our stay but had friends attending to us. Wish we had known more Spanish as it would be a richer cultural experience to communicate with her friends. They were warm and friendly hosts despite the language barrier. Clean, excellent location, great breakfast.

From the moment we arrived at Casa Tarajano, Elena and her very cute and small dog welcomed us like family (even though we didn't arrive until 1am in the morning after a severely delayed flight). She couldn't do enough or recommend enough for us and was consistently doing all she could to make sure our stay was a good one.... More

If you are looking to visit Cuba, not as a tourist but as someone that wants to immerse themselves in culture, look no farther! Elena is fantastic and so is her trusty sidekick, Nancy, who serves up a delicious breakfast for 5CUC/person. It is absolutely worth it, but there are other breakfast options nearby in the 10-20CUC/person range. Our room... More

I don't know if I should start with how welcoming Elena is or start with the amazing location and house. It was close to everything, only about 2 blocks from the Malecon.
