It is located in a neighbourhood- an area where folks live their everyday lives. The room was small and clean, with a private bathroom, air conditioning and a mini-fridge. We were encouraged to use the... More

We have been in Cuba for a month november/december 2013 and we've had two stays at Ivette and Alejandro's place. The "casa" is located in the center of what's worth experiencing in Habana. The rooms are clean and nice. The sanitary conditions are excellent. In addition to being warm and good people, they're both well-educated people that it's possible to... More

From the first moment to the very last moment Alejandro and Yvette were so welcoming and helpful to me. Alejandro takes the guests on a tour of Havana on their first morning and there... More

Each time I return to Havana I stay here and have never had a bad experience. Parking is very convenient and safe here while at other places it can get quite complicated, including waking up... More
