Elena's motto (Come as a guest, live as family) is well chosen. This was a very good choice for a solo traveler. Everyone in and connected with her household was kind and thoughtful. She gave very good advice about navigating Havana without being intrusive, and arranged a cab to and from the airport. Maybe a bit more information about local... More

I would strongly suggest you to stay in Vedado specifically in Elena's place! Why Vedado? It's a nicer and quieter area so you'll have your freedom and quietness in the morning and when you go to sleep. Going to Old Havana our City Center will cost you 50 cts and 10 min with a shared cab which is even more... More

Elena is a fabulous host, fun, friendly, and fluent in English. She was available to help us with what to see, do, eat, drink, everything. Breakfast is magnificent, well worth the small daily cost, fresh tasty ingredients.
