I have been at Elena's Hostal twice, and for sure it won't be the last. This place is like home, warm, great food, smiles, you feel at easy been there. Elena is a very kind host and besides loving her city Havana a lot, she knows a lot about Havana without doubt. She is ready to help you with anything you ask, references of places to go, things to do, food you would like her to prepare, transportation, rentals, you name it. The apartment is clean, bright, spacious, has a great balcony you can just sit and see the movement of the city at any time, day, afternoon, night, you can relax and dream you wildest dreams. It is very well located, in El Vedado, and at 3 blocks walking distance to the Hotel Nacional, were you can go to read, use the pool, eat, have a drink or two, or just sit at the veranda in from of the malecon and stare and the endless see for hours. I would just recomend this place to anybody traveling to La Havana. Better than a hotel. Her meals are just amazing, I found them testier than any restaurant or paladar. Enjoy!
