Excellent room, very clean, close to the center. For me, Cuba was one of the most beautiful experiences. It was made even more beautiful by my acquaintance with Elaine. Very helpful, warm person, she helped us a lot! Gracias por todo :) Vasso -Giorgos Greece - April 2023

10/10 Exceptional

The best place we could have possibly stayed. It immediately felt like a little home. Our host gave us advice on us travel to and from all of the places we wanted to visit. She was sweet and just a phone call away every time we needed a little help. We had so many conversations with her where she taught us about the country and culture. The neighborhood is calm but a little loud with music and cars passing by and locals living just next door but that makes it beautiful—we really enjoyed it. Just a short walk away from some great food. The best part is that it isn’t close to any hotels so, unlike other places, there aren’t people waiting outside to try to sell you a tour or cigars. This will be our go-to place on our next visit. I couldn’t recommend it more for a fantastic Havana experience.

The proprietor made us feel welcome and we found them very accomodating. The position of the accommodation provided us with a great experience of mixing with locals who were very friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and suitable for our needs at a very cheap price.

Feel right at home!
The owners and staff were very gracious and all my needs were met. They were certain that I was satisfied and comfortable. The beds were not great but sufficed for my short stay (3 nights). The breakfast prepared fresh every morning was delicious, and they always made my pm coffee with cheer. I am very thankful for finding such a "warm" and caring place to stay in such an unfamiliar place.
