Der Aufenthalt bei Maria und Pablo war sehr sehr gut. Alles super sauber, komfortabel, ordentlich und geräumig. Wir haben uns sehr wohl, sicher und geborgen gefühlt. Das Essen war sehr gut und die Gespräche mit den Beiden interessant. Es war für uns sehr familiär; besonders die tatkräftige Unterstützung von Maria bei unserer Reiseplanung innerhalb Kubas war äußerst hilfreich.
Beide sind sehr gebildet und können viel über die kubanischen Trationen erzählen.
Das Haus von Maria und Pablo liegt sehr zentral und man alles gut zu Fuß erreichen.
Ich kann eine Buchung bestens empfehlen.
Maria Graciela was an excellent host - very nice and clean accommodation, fluent English and the best breakfast we had in Cuba. We travelled around Cuba for 5 weeks and her casa was our first stop. Maria Graciela gave us a lot of useful advice that helped us many times during our trip. The stay was so nice that we decided to come back for 2 days before our flight home. The location of her casa is also very convenient – in walking distance to the Malecon, city centre, supermarket and only 2 mins from a park with Wi-Fi. Maria Graciela and her husband Pablo were like our Cuban grandparents :) If you want to feel like home – do not hesitate and come to stay at her place! :)
We had a wonderful stay in Habana! Graciela is the perfect host. She helped us organize our entire trip through western Cuba and she makes a delicious breakfast. The room is exactly as described, the location is perfect. Together with her husband she really makes you feel welcome and at home. We would definitely stay with her again and truly recommend the place!
It was a very pleasant stay in a nice and safe street of Centrohabana (the 4 first days of my Cuba stay, reserved 2, prolonged 2). 10 minutes walk to Malecon and 15 minutes to Capitolio. Excellent communication with Graciela and her husband. Fair prices for brakfast and stay. If you feel like it, you can travel all Cuba without booking anything from your homecountry, just using Graciela's network.
Don't accept taxi fares from the airport to Graciela's place higher than 20 CUC. This is the least negotiation with the drivers should bring you down to.
Yo .. siempre volvería.
Thank you very much for the best accommodation, and best food ever, every day morning big breakfast, with mix of local fruits, mixed eggs and fresh juice, this breakfast was realy like brunch,and best dinner, fried bananas, meat,rice and delicious home made dessert, Graciela teach us to cook a local meal. We had lot of fun, and Graciela and her husband Paul was like family, like friend. They help us to manage our trip, find accomodation, transfer to other city and told us what is good to see. The flat was all time and everywhere clean, we were realy happy and had a rest by them, and we think on them many time after we came back home,they are realy nice and kind family . Thanks of them we had the best trip.

Sono stato ospite da Graziella appena arrivato a Cuba e subito l' accoglienza è stata bellissima. La signora Graziella è disponibilissima.... arrivai a casa sua dopo mezzanotte e lei aspettava con gioia il mio arrivo. Subito mi ha offerto un succo di frutta e mi ha spiegato un po di cose su Cuba. Il giorno seguente mi ha organizzato spostamenti e prenotazioni in vinales,cenfuegos e trinidad.
Sono tornato dopo una settimana da lei e sono rimasto per 4 giorni. Graziella mi ha trattato come un figlio.... mi preparava delle gustosissime e abbondanti colazioni con possibilità anche di cenare a prezzi modici ed assaporare la vera cucina cubana. Graziella e suo marito Pablo ti trattano con amore e sono sempre disponibili, entrambi sono professori e quindi bravissimi nel spiegare qualunque cosa voi vogliate sapere. Lo consiglio a tutti. La casa è accogliente con possibilità di dormire fino a tre persone in un ambiente che ha camera con climatizzatore e bagno indipendente. ha inoltre un balcone dove si può fumare e aver la vista su calle San Raffaell.
la posizione è ottima, vicino all'università e quindi al centro dell' Havana, a pochi passi da malecon.... a piedi o in bicitaxi si raggiunge facilmente L' Havana vecchia con tutte le sue attrazioni e ristoranti. Il quartiere è tranquillo e ha un parco adiacente dove ci si può collegare ad internet in wi-fi.
