I stayed at Casa Melvis for 11 nights in July 2014. This place is spectacular! The view is breathtaking...you can see the entire port and northern coastline. Not to mention the apartment itself which is clean and comfortable...and the air conditioning works! This is huge as Havana is scorching hot in the summer. What really won me over for this... More

My wife and I stayed at Casa Melvis for 6 nights, Janusry 15, 2014. We rented both rooms, so we had the entire place to ourselves. The apartment is beautifully furnished, the beds are very comfortable, pillows soft and cushy. The view from either of the two balconies is fantastic. Great view of El Moro and the statue of Jesus.... More

Melvis is a great person, friendly and helpful. They waited for us in the middle of the night. I recommend you should them ask for help with the drive from the airport. It is easier and safer to find the place.

We booked one night's stay here via hostel bookers, and after waiting almost two hours in front of the door we had to find another place. this is not a casa but a rental apartment, where no one is around when you need. The location of the apartment is in the old town but in a very run-down ghetto-like building... More

As others mentioned the building looks from outside, but the apartment is modern, very clean, bright and airy, good size with a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. We rented all apartment and I think it's the best option as there is only one bathroom and only one bedroom comes with deposit box. I was concerned about safety but we never... More

We stayed in this Casa for 6 nights! A really great appartment on the 8th floor with 2 rooms (we stayed in the one with seaview), a livingroom, kitchen, balcony and airconditioning and locker in the bedroom. The location is perfect!

This apartment is an Oasis in the middle of Old Habana. Modern decorated, totally renovated inside, very clean, and with amazing views of the city, this place is near all points of interest but offering the commodities of modern times. The owner works hard, he offered suggestions and was always responsive even through daily emails. I strongly recommend this house!

Great 2 bedroom apartment in the Havana Vieja. Top floor, two balconies with spectacular views on the harbor and Havana Vieja. Meals available, everything reasonable priced. The hosts are very friendly. I would totally recommend this place.
