Our stay at Victoria and Margarita's house was wonderful. They have a lovely place, nicely furnished, with great views of the Malecon from their 6th floor apartment in a perfectly located building. The room was good, A/C worked well, and the shower was the best I encountered in Cuba. Victoria and Margarita (sisters) are exceedingly nice, although they will probably... More

We just returned from a week long trip to Cuba, and stayed at Vik y Mar while in Havana. The apartment is centrally located, has terrific views, is super comfortable and both Vik and Mar were delightful hosts. The food was fresh and delicious, and our rooms were spotless (and had plenty of hot water). Our 19 year old son... More

If you've made it all the way to Havana (especially as an American) you'd be cheating yourself of an amazing opportunity by not staying at Vik & Mar. The sisters/proprietors are warm, kind, and do everything they can to make you feel as if you're a member of their family. Great breakfast in the morning, helpful neighborhood tips, and a... More

I stayed here a month ago and was not happy at all staying in this hospedaje. Things went missing the first night and after confronting the two women , they denied they had touched anything. I lost some money, my after shave was 1/2 stolen, even my tooth paste was missing. These women are not to be trusted. Stay away... More

We stayed at Vik and Mar for 7 nights. Everything was perfect. Our window overlooked the Malecon. Breakfast every day was more than we could possibly eat - hugh plate of fresh fruit and another huge plate with eggs, sausage, bread, etc. We lacked for nothing. Every day Mar cleaned the floors as well as the entire place. It is... More

This is a great apartment. Stayed 2 nights in the bedroom with the double bed. Would stay again. Enter around back. Elevators were good. Great views! Hot water and good pressure. 5-10 min walk to parque central via Prado.

Casa Vik y Mar is run by retired widows Margarita and Victoria - two very interesting and loving "aunties". Rooms are spacious, spotlessly cleaned every day by the hosts, and my room had a direct view of the Malecon and El Morro. Each room has a private bathroom, and the hosts serve a generous breakfast every morning of fresh fruit,... More

Casa Vik & Mar, run by sisters Viktoria and Margarita, is a fabulously authentic way to holiday in Havana. Viktoria and Margarita are the sweetest, kindest hosts one could wish for. From our arrival to leaving after our 3 night stay they did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. Linen and towels were changed in our short stay;... More

We stayed here on our arrival and departure and loved the location on the Malécon sea front! It is 15 minutes walk to Old Havana. Great price for the location with beautiful views of the sea and harbourside and Fort. Large clean rooms. Two lovely retired ladies live here and enjoy having chats in Spanish over cups of coffee.
