Jorge and Isabel made me feel so welcome at their place as well as in Havana Vieja. I was travelling alone, but felt very at ease in their house. They met me at the bus stop which was a short walk from their casa. All the sights were close by, Isabel came with me the first night for my own private tour. All the sights were in close proximity.I cannot find fault with anything I was offered: a comfortable, clean, quiet, bed and room with its own bathroom, air conditioning and fan. Breakfast was great. Dinner was also offered but I due to my schedule I ate out. They also organised a car service for the trip to the airport. The family are truly wonderful, helpful people. Isabel took the time to look after me after I felt unwell. Jorge speaks fluent English. They made my experience in Havana Vieja so enjoyable that I have sent several friends there from Australia. I highly recommend this casa if you would like a local experience. Thanks Jorge and Isabel. I will be back one day hopefully in the near future.
