I will assist you for all communications from Mexico and my mother will receive you at home. She will attend you with all hospitality.
Previously, breakfast at my house was included in the payment of the rent, but temporarily it will be charged due to the tough economic situation facing the country. Only for 10 EU or USD. My guests can join the experiences of visiting places in the city on bicycles, as well as snorkeling in the sea. Guests will feel at home and can count on my help for everything they need. The apartment is very cozy, and is located in the North of the city center, in a quiet and safe neighborhood, less than 2km from the coast. It is one of the most sought after areas of Havana, with great cultural activity, close to areas of great tourist interest such as the Capitol, the Central Park, the Gran Teatro de La Habana and Old Havana. It is also very close to the theaters and cinemas of Vedado, the Malecón and the Bay and only a 20 minute drive from the airport. The bus stop is just 2 minutes walk from the house, you can also take collective taxis at good prices at the stop. I can request collective taxis that carry out their collection from home to go anywhere in the country, as well as American cars with excellent conditions that bring you from the airport to my home and also you can book to meet Cuba traveling in an old american car . if they want me
I can coordinate the collection, so you only have to tell me at least 24 hours in advance.

I live alone and I am an actor of TV, theater and radio. My passions are cinema and theater and although I love animals, I do not have pets. I also like to travel and make friends. I was not born in Havana, so it is very easy for me to understand the curiosity of visitors, I know many places in Havana that will make them fall in love with her. I can help the guests and advise them to enjoy a wonderful vacation in Cuba. Ah, it is important that my clients know that they will be able to enjoy the refreshment service inside the room.

    It was lovely to stay in Rioniels! His brother Ray was a fabulous host for us. Ray was very helpful in organizing tours and taxis for us. He was delightful to talk with and made us feel at home and safe. The room was also very comfortable. The only tricky part was the location of the casa. It's in Central Havana which does not have as many tourist type things to see as Old Havana.

    Desde el primer momento,tengo que evaluar mi estancia en casa de Roiniel de manera positiva.Cuando yo buscaba un alojamiento via Homestay,Roiniel me respondió dentro de un minuto y pronto nos acordemos.
    Siempre dándome consejos útiles tanto para la llegada como durante mi estancia en La Habana,Roiniel me ayudó varias veces en situaciones tanto estandares como inestandares(como fue p.e. el asunto de mi maleta perdida durante mi vuelo para Cuba).
    Anfitrión con ganas de charlar conmigo a veces,pero siempre con respecto para con mi privacidad.Siempre a mi dispocición desde mañana hasta medianoche.
    Ningúna sorpresa que decidí prolongar mi estancia en su casa por unos días más,antes de trasladarme para Viñales,siguiendo su sugerencia gracias a la cual conocí esa hermosa parte de Cuba también.
    ¡Gracias por toda tu ayuda y respaldo durante mi estancia,Roiniel !

    Rioniel and Luis are the most incredible hosts! They helped us so much getting settled, exchange our money for the best rate possible, helped us find the best spot for dinner and get our phone set up while we were visiting. I cannot suggest enough staying with them. Such good people who truly care about helping. Loves our stay.

    We had a wonderful stay at roiniel's place. He is a really kind person, he offered us coffee and juices all along our stay. He was also very helpful with directions and he found a taxi to the airport at a fair price for us. The place is nice and clean. 10/10!

    Sehr freundlicher, höflicher und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber der uns mit seiner Kompetenz in Havanna sehr weitergeholfen hat. Eine sehr saubere und ansprechende Unterkunft im Herzen von Havannas Altstadt. Absolut empfehlenswert. Wir freuen uns den Gastgeber am Ende unserer Rundreise. Denn diese Unterkunft nutzen wir noch einmal.

    Vielen Dank Frau Carmen und Herrn Horst. Ich hatte schon immer eine besondere Zuneigung zu deutschen Gästen. Seit ich angefangen habe zu vermieten, war absolut jeder wunderbar. Danke, dass du mir hilfst und mein Zuhause bevorzugst. Wir sehen uns wieder, wenn wir aus der Provinz zurückkommen.

    La estancia con Roi ha sido más que únicamente un lugar donde quedarnos. La casa está perfectamente equipada con aire acondicionado y baño exclusivo para los huéspedes. Las vistas sobre la Habana son una maravilla (se ve hasta el Capitolio) y la localización es perfecta para ir andando a donde se quiera (Habana Vieja, Malecón, Vedado, Plaza de la Revolución...) o con un taxi económico. También recomendado el desayuno completo para empezar un día de patear la ciudad con energía. Ahora bien, fuera de lo que incluye el servicio de Hospedaje, Roi nos dio mucho más. Un tipo con muy buena conversación para aprender más sobre el día a día cubano. Nos ayudó enormemente , junto con Luis, a planificar nuestro viaje por 15 días en la isla, recomendándonos alojamientos y lugares que fueron un acierto en todos los casos. Nos sentimos todo el tiempo como en casa con ellos y nos llevamos dos nuevos amigos Cubanos al final del viaje. ¡Muchas gracias por todo!

    Amigos, muchísimas gracias por esas palabras. Ustedes fueron más que huéspedes también. Fueron muy atentos, muy comunicativos, y sobre todo, comprensivos y considerados con la situación que vivimos los cubanos. Quedo muy agradecido con la visita de ustedes. Acá los extrañamos. Espero que tengan la oportunidad de regresar.

    Einen Aufenthalt bei Roiniel kann ich nur empfehlen. Schon die Kommunikation vorab lief sehr unkompliziert und schnell. Auch vor Ort war Roiniel sehr bemüht, mir zu helfen und mir Tipps zu geben. Außerdem hat er eine Fahrradtour für mich organisiert. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber, die Lage gut und man hat ein Badezimmer für sich alleine. Vielen Dank nochmals für alles, ich komme gerne wieder!

    Julia, liebe Kundin. Ich war jedoch sehr besorgt, weil ich am Ende meiner Karriere sehr ernste Situationen hatte und um das Ganze abzurunden, das Internet funktionierte damals nicht gut und vielleicht konnte ich Ihnen nicht besser dienen. Danke für deinen Kommentar. Aus tiefstem Herzen sende ich Ihnen eine große Umarmung, die ganze Liebe der Welt, und ich hoffe, dass Sie in diesen Tagen, in denen wir so in Schwierigkeiten leben, auf sich selbst, Ihre Familie und Freunde aufpassen. Pass gut auf dich auf.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
