    Mery e la sua famiglia sono gentili e disponibili. Posizione Avana vecchia perfetta per visitare la città, bisogna fare qualche gradino per arrivare alla sua struttura ma la Camera è accettabile e ha un terrazzino sui tetti che ripaga la fatica. La consigliamo!

    La casa de Mary a été la première où nous sommes restés durant notre voyage à Cuba et a marqué le début d'une très belle expérience ! Mary a été adorable avec nous, et nous a renseigné sur beaucoup de choses.
    La chambre était très bien, l'indépendance avec le reste de la maison était un réel plus. Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié que le ménage y soit fait tous les jours.
    Le petit déjeuner était aussi très correcte : jus de fruit, café, pain, etc...
    Je recommande vivement cette casa et notamment de part son emplacement idéal !

    I think one heart is even a bit much to be awarding in this instance. At the end of our three week trip we arrived back in Havana to stay with Mary, not only were we not given the room we had booked for two nights, but we were told that we were staying in alternative accommodation 6 blocks away. I noticed that this was an overflow apartment, our passports were never taken and we never signed any documents to say we were staying in that location. Having arrived at the alternative accommodation we were put into a small dark box room, when we had booked a two bed, bright spacious room. An agreement was made that we pay 35 CUC per night for this small room instead of the 45 CUC that was required for the original booking - which is extremely expensive for a casa stay in Havana. Although we had a deposit paid for two nights we decided to leave the accommodation after the first night, as the room conditions were unbearable. When we tried to leave after paying for one night accommodation ,a woman who appeared to be Mary's daughter would not let us leave the house, she would not unlock the door and tried to barricade us into the apartment which was on the fourth floor. It was the worst experience we had during our entire visit in Cuba. I absolutely believe these people are scheming and greedy, using an overflow house and charging prices well above anywhere else. The pictures do not reflect the rooms in the accommodation. Having seen the wonderful pictures online we decided to spend a little more on this accommodation for our final two nights in Cuba as a treat. We could not have been more disappointed!

    Mary's home is fabulous! She's an incredible host. I highly recommend her homestay to anyone in Havana. The location is perfect. There's plenty of space and privacy. Lastly, her dog is very cute!

    Good location in Havana Vieja and a spacious room. Food was disappointing when comparing with experiences of other travellers in Casas Particulares who were treated to sumptuous seafood (lobster, shrimps, fish) for an evening meal.

    Many thanks for your evaluation on the page, as for dinner, we as a house for rent in cuba, we are not allowed to sell seafood, as the paladares, this is only authorized, in state restaurants, not in the Private business like ours, regards, mary

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.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
