    The stay with Marielas mother Virgen was absolutely lovely, both ladies are very nice and try to help you as best as they can. Mariela speaks English and helps organise many things whatever one needs. The room is clean and very nice, AC works perfectly, it is a bit noisy as the windows are towards the street but in Habana everywhere there is noise so thats not a minus, just bring earplugs and it won't be a problem! The bathroom is not connected to the room, you have to walk through the living room but we never felt uncomfortable. The bathroom is very clean and nice and has everything one needs, Virgen and Mariela even provide shampoo and soap! The location of the apartement is fantastic as it is very close to the Capitolio and the old town, everything one needs is in walking distance. Thank you very much for hosting us! Saludos y prospero año de los Suizos! =)

    Staying with Virgen was wonderful. The room is nice and well-located and Virgen and Mariela were helpful for all the questions we had and organizational tips about taxis etc. Also, we really enjoyed the breakfast and we are going to miss the guayaba and papaya. We would always come back (and in fact we did as we spent the last days of our roundtrip again at her house ;).)

    Gracias Mariela y Virgen!

    Mariela and her mum were amazing hosts. The room is well located : you can visit all La Havane by walk. The room is very clean, modern, with air conditionner. She offered us water, wifi ticket and a delicious light breakfast everyday with fresh fruits and coffee. She gave us many advice and booked us all taxi we needed. I really recommend the house ! Muchas Gracias !!

    Sin palabras nos dejaron esta familia, sin duda la mejor casa en la que nos hemos quedado y no por el tamaño del baño o la grifería de oro, sino por la calidad, amor, atención y cariño que emana en esos corazones. Recomendamos 100% ir a la Habana y parar en casa de Mariela, os sentiréis como uno más. Tremenda conversadora siempre dispuesta a ayudar, aconsejar y compartir anécdotas, vivencias, experiencias...
    La casa está también fenomenal, si buscas limpieza, espacio, intimidad, aire acondicionado... Todo.
    La puntuación va de 1 a 5 pero os ponemos un 10!!!!

    Nos vemos pronto :D

    Staying with Mariela and her family was a fantastic experience! They were incredibly lovely, helpful and friendly and answered all our questions. The rooms had air conditioning, towels and water were available and everything perfectly clean. The apartment is in a great location, not far from Old Havana, the Malecon and great restaurants. Breakfast was also great. I can recommend to anybody staying with Mariela!

How do I book?

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.
