We had the most fantastic stay at Tamara and Gustavo's beautiful apartment in the Vedado. It is a dream place, perfectly located near Avenida 23 and all transportation and a few blocks away from the fabulous Fábrica de Arte Cubano and its trendy restaurants. The neighbourhood around is quiet, very green and like an open-air architecture museum, you can stop admiring every single facade. As for the apartment, it is beautifully furnished, has a wonderful covered terrace where Yeni's delicious breakfasts are served, a large and beautiful bedroom with nice linen and furniture, airco, a fan, and finally a great bathroom. Everything is amazingly clean, Yeni makes the room and cleans everyday. What more can you ask? Really a five-star service. As for the owners, they are as fantastic as their apartment: warm, welcoming, interesting, generous with their time and help. And Yeni, the person who works with them, is a wonderful person as well, extremely professional and warm. We were really sad that we had to leave and are already thinking of when to return to this place. Thank you so much once again Tamara and Gustavo for your wonderful hospitality, we hope to see you again very soon! Léa and Frédéric

Had a great stay at this little guesthouse, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Havana. The old town is close enough to be reached by foot 30 mins or so, or a short taxi ride. We did both as there is so much to see en route, and took taxi during the nights. As a repeater to Havana and Cuba, it was a great experience to meet the hosts who really took time to give advise and provide unbiased information. Moreover, they are really interesting and well informed hosts whom you trust at first meeting. The best thing about this place is the relaxing terrace and the quiet bedroom. It’s an Oasis waiting for you at the end of your day in Havana or your sightseeing excursions. The breakfast is a must for all travellers staying here. I recommend jumping on the red double decker tourist bus, even though you might not feel like the type to do this. You get to see so much and it’s stops a few blocks from Tamgus. It will set you back CUC 10.00 but you will have a great overview before you start exploring Havana. I will definitely stay here again!!!

Best hosts in our travel experience so far. We loved every minute in this very cosy house. Tamara and Gustavo are Amazing and very interesting individuals and make you feel like home from the moment you step into their house. But let me start from the beginning. The room is great very comfortable with aircon, fridge and king size bed. Tamara - she is btw a very famous actor in Cuba - is together with their kitchen support Jenny preparing your privat breakfast which you can enjoy on their terras. Gustavo’s English is great, since he used to be a museums director he knows a lot about the history of Cuba. He is usually around in the morning and evening to provide you with helpful guidance. Both of them support you with your travel by booking accommodations in the next town and taxis. Be aware that their house is not in the historic center, but we always enjoyed the 5 minute ride with the collectivo (old American car) to the city center for 5 CUC for two people. Additionally the hop on hop off bus stop is only 5 minutes away by walk (10 CUC per person per day). From their house you can reach the following locations easily by walk: - Art Fabric (5 minutes) - great bar/Club/Gallery mix - Jardines del 1830 (7 minutes) - great outdoor salsa parties directly at the sea - Jazz Café (15 minutes) - Restaurants (5-10) minutes -> we loved the restaurants around their house since the quality and price was great We would always go back to this casa. Thanks again for your great hospitality and maybe see you in Berlin soon. Cheers Marco & Sevim

We spend a couple of days on arrival Havana and again a couple of days on departure Havana. Location is perfect in quiet street, close to a.o. FAC, which is a MUST, when in Havana. Old factory converted into huge cultural house with restaurants, salsa and tango classes, live concerts (classic, rock etc), exhibitions, events, movies etc. About 10 mins by taxi to Old Town. Very large fully equipped rooms, sitting room and beautiful terrasse. We had some medical problems and enjoyed a phenomenal help and assistance from Tamara and Gustavo. Best hosts ever !!

TamGus homestay hosts Tamara and Gustavo are very warm and helpful people. Their rental bedrooms are spacious and well-furnished and the bath is clean and everything in it is operable. They serve a hearty breakfast for 5 CUC on their porch overlooking the street. The Malecon is 4 blocks in one direction and the Colon Cemetary, where you can catch the 10 CUC hop-on hop-off tour bus, is 4 blocks in another direction. Good value!
