Rafael and his family are truly amazing! They are so kind and helpful! Best host in Cuba! The apartment is very central and have a rooftop terrace also! We got our clothes washed also, which is very nice when you are travelling around! They also let us store our luggage when we came back to Havana at the end of our trip, and let us shower and borrow towels so that we could be clean and fresh at the airport! So thankful for everything you have done for us!
Rafael is truly a nice host. Very helpful and makes great breakfast with lots of delicious fruits. One of his daughters also speaks good English and helped me to find places of interests in Havana. Clean room with comfy bed and AC. Centraly located home. Only five min walk to the Malecon. Great value for money. Would stay here again.
Una estancia fenomenal! Volveremos muyyy pronto. El desayuno nos gusto muchisimo, y Rafael y Maria nos ayudaron much tambien! Muchos saludos
Wir haben diese Unterkunft von Deutschland aus gebucht und sind direkt nach unserer Ankunft für vier Tage zu Rafael und seiner Familie - es war absolut toll! Unser Flug hatte Verspätung, sodass wir erst spät am Abend angekommen sind, wir wurden herzlich empfangen und bekamen jeden Morgen (für ein paar Cuc) ein tolles Frühstück, mit dem besten Obst, welches wir je gegessen haben. Die Casa ist sehr sauber, hat eine absolut tolle Lage mit einer wundervollen Dachterrasse und ist jederzeit weiter zu empfehlen, denn Rafael macht alles möglich, damit man sich wohl fühlt und organisiert auch gerne ein Taxi Collectivo, wenn man weiter reisen möchte! Jeder der das Flair einer Casa particulares sucht und mag, sollte die Casa Botella buchen!
Die Unterkunft bei Rafael ist sehr interessant, man wohnt typisch kubanisch und hat einen super Ausblick auf die Strasse. Auch auf der Terrasse ist der Ausblick genial. Rafael und seine Familie bzw. seine Töchter sind sehr hilfsbereit und geben einem einen guten Einblick in die kubanische Gesellschaft. Sie sind sehr herzlich und beantworten gerne alle Fragen, die man über Kuba stellt. Wir fühlten uns wie Freunde dort. Das Frühstück war super... die Berge an Obst konnten wir kaum aufessen. Alles in allem ein sehr interessanter und angenehmer Aufenthalt. Gracias....
Una estancia excelente. El apartamento como se ve en las fotos. El baño tiene agua caliente y fría. Ubicación en el centro de Havana. Muy fácil organizar viaje desde el aeropuerto a su casa. Rafael y su esposa fue súper bien y volveré a quedar con ellos. El desayuno muy rico y para un bien precio. Muchas gracias!
A good place to stay, if you're a walker! Just in the center, close to the seaside and to Havana Vieja. The upstairs room we stayed in was a bit hard to reach with a toddler, as the stairs are really steep. Rafael was very helpful, lent us money to pay for the airport taxi and helped us deal with luggage loss.
We were very pleased with Rafael's cooking and the clean bedroom. Good to have the patio on the roof too! Rafael gave us an address to go to in Vinales and ordered a taxi for us which was especially helpful.I would definitely recommend this homestay to my friends. Thankyou,Rafael.
Rafael was very welcoming and he speaks a very good English which is rare in Cuba. When we arrived we got a coffee and also in the middle of the night before going to the airport. He and his wife are really nice, helpful and funny. The location of the flat is very close to the city center. Thanks for having us over!
Rafael and his family were delightful hosts. Very friendly and helpful people who enriched our stay in Havana and Cuba. Rafael can help you with any questions you might have about travelling in his country. The accommodation was very spacious and clean. Breakfast (5 CUC pp) was delicious and absolutely huge! Would definitely visit again :)
