Great couple- Very friendly. Good location for central Havana. Lovely terrace to relax. Great breakfast. Lovely room. Would recommend for sure
We had a wonderful time in Cuba and staying with Leo and Yai was the best part of it! We felt so welcome and relaxed in their home. The atmosphere was friendly and effortless and we enjoyed the chats and laughters we shared, sitting on the best "terraza" in Havana. Breakfast was delicous and we enjoyed the home cooked meals. The room was spacy and cozy, with an in-suite bathroom, large refrigerator and air conditioner. The apartment is situated in Havana Centro with the Havana Vieja only a couple of minutes away by foot. It is close to the seashores of Malecon, which is perfect for morning or evening strolls and wifi connection. There is plenty of music, restaurants and bars nearby and perfectly safe to walk around at night. We can truly recommend Villa Jonica if you want to experience cuban life and meet amazing and generous people, such as Leo and Yai!
Leonardo und seine Frau waren sehr aufmerksame Gastgeber. Wir haben uns bei ihnen sehr wohl gefühlt und sie haben uns gute Tipps gegeben. Das Highlight der Unterkunft ist die große Terrasse. Wir sind als Freunde gegangen.
Great stay with Leonardo and his wife. We got delishious breakfast every day and good tips on where to go in Havana. The apartment is clean and spacious and very central. We loved the terrace for some afternoon sun and relax. Leonardo also helped us booking a taxi for our departure. Highly recommended!
Place has a good location. 5 min walk from the old town and it's near to many famous sightseeings. Leo was a great host. We enjoyed our stay there very much. Room was clean and comfy. Own fridge was a big plus. View from the balcony isn't so great but balcony itself is nice and spacious. It's fun to relax and read at the balcony in the evening.
E' stato un piacere essere ospiti di Leo e Yai, persone splendide, ragazzi svegli, sempre disponibili ed amichevoli nei nostri giorni di permanenza a la Habana. Ci hanno aiutati in tutto, dalla prenotazione dei taxi ai consigli su come affrontare al meglio la città. La casa è davvero carina, con un grande terrazzo in cui far colazione o rilassarsi al tramonto tra due chiacchiere e un buon sigaro. La camera è confortevole, pulita e silenziosa. Grazie di tutto Leo e Yai, siete speciali!
It was a pleasure to be guests of Leo and Yai, wonderful people, always available and friendly on our days in Havana. They helped us in everything, from booking taxis to tips on how to better face the city. The house is really nice, with a large terrace where having breakfast or relax at sunset with a good cigar. The room is comfortable, clean and quiet. Thanks for everything Leo and Yai, you're special!

We had an amazing stay at Leonardo’s casa. It’s an oasis located in the middle of the bustling city. The turquoise walls and the rocking chairs were very comforting after a busy day. Thank you for all your help Leonardo!
Very good location not touristy, everything is in walkable distance. Leonardo and his girlfriend were very nice and helpful. They helped us to get a taxi to go to Vinjales. Beautiful terrace, great coffee and unforgettable experience. Muchas gracias!
