Wir können diese Casa sehr empfehlen. Mariela und ihre Mutter haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen. Das Frühstück war gut und liebevoll zubereitet. Außerdem gaben sie uns Tipps für Havana und Mariela hat uns auch die Weiterreise organisiert. Insgesamt haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt!
Nettes kleines Zimmer, mit Klimaanlage, sehr sauber gehalten
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
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
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!
We had a great time staying at Virgen's home! the room was exactly as described and the breakfasts were delicious. Mariela was really helpful with tips and booking us taxis.
thank you for a lovely time x
We had a great stay with Mariela and Virgen. They are really friendly and helped us with all the local information we needed. There is some noise coming into the room from the street, but that's impossible to avoid in central Havanna. The humming of air-condition cancelled the noise out well enough. :)
Mariela and her mother are very nice and helpful. We had a nice stay and the location was very central, so you could see the main attractions, by walking distance. Thank you both :)
Nuestra estancia en su casa fue estupenda, tanto Virgen como Mariela son personas muy acogedoras y nos ayudaron en todo momento. Nuestro viaje a Cuba no hubiera sido lo mismo sin ellas. Muy recomendable.
