    We had a very good stay in Havana at Carmen and Carlos' place. The room was beautiful with a nice balcony, private bathroom, good beds and air conditioning. Also, every morning the room was cleaned! Carmen is a kind host who prepared a good breakfast each morning. Good place to stay if you search something in Old Havana.

    Carmen and Carlos are wonderful hosts, very friendly and supporting. They gave us a lot of valuable tips and helped us a lot in organizing our trip. Their house is located on a quiet crossroads, very central in the old town of Havana. It makes a very well-kept impression, so that you immediately feel very comfortable. The high rooms are impressive, the furniture and floors convey vintage charm. Everything is done with love and style. Our room (no. 1) is about 15 m2 and has a new bathroom (with shower). We liked it a lot and can warmly recommend it. We would like to come back anytime!
