Reviewed July 19, 2011

The owners of the house were so welcoming, it felt like we’d known them all our lives. Mylana is a natural born host and mother. She looked after us to no end when we needed her and left us to our own devices when we didn't. When she wasn't sure or felt she wasn't speaking good enough english (Mylana speaks very good english) for us to understand she called on her husband Otto who was equally as lovely. Our luggage was lost and they both went out of their way to help us, calling the air line continuously and doing an excellent job in fighting our corner. Mylana let us accompany her shopping one day so we got the inside scoop on Havana the way locals do it, so we knew where to go, how to get there and how much things ‘should’ cost. Mylana & Otto stayed in touch during our stay in Cuba (as they chased our luggage for us for almost 1 month whilst we we traveled around enjoying Cuba) and it was them we went back to for info on coach trips, accommodation in other areas etc (a massive help considering the internet isn’t easily accessible in Cuba and was not accessible for half the time we were in Havana). For a first time in Cuba, I would definitely recommend staying here as you just cant go wrong with these two on your side. The house and rooms are immaculately clean, lovely, airy and bright as the apartment is on the top floor with a pretty balcony area for lounging.

The apartment is not directly in the centre of Havana, it is in a lovely clean neighbourhood just on the out skirts, with a quaint little fruit and veg market, corner shop, kids playground, restaurants, bus stops and a main road where you can catch one of the old quaint cuban car taxi's into Havana central for 20CUP (£0.47p) per person, all these amineties are within 5mins walking distance. There was also a cinema, art gallery, supermarket, cash machine, banks & money exchange all within 10mins walking distance.

If we ever visit Havana again, we would ONLY stay with Mylena & Otto

Room Tip: Book early & also call them if they appear booked on a web site, incase they've had a last minute cancelation.

Room Tip: Zimmer mit Zugang zum Balkon ist etwas schöner, wobei auch Bewohner des zweiten Zimmers den Balkon nutzen können.
