    Rafael and Magdi are excellent hosts! They are good-hearted people with a generous spirit and a passion for offering the best possible service. The bedroom and bathroom were exceptionally clean and their breakfasts were large and delicious. Their location is walking distance from Fabrica de Arte and near a variety of good restaurants at 1/3 the price of Old Havana. I highly recommend this casa.

    Rafael was an amazing and kind host. Always willing to help, provided what we needed, and was a friendly face. The room itself was perfect--with great wifi and AC, and it was cleaned when we came back. A wonderful experience. Thank you to Rafael and his family.

    Rafael und Magdi sind freundlich, zuvorkommend, hilfsbereit und sehr herzlich. Wir haben uns bei ihnen sehr willkommen gefühlt. Das Zimmer in sehr guter Lage in Vedado ist groß, geräumig, sauber, verfügt über eine Klimaanlage und ein eigenes Badezimmer. Über das Zimmer hat man einen direkten Zugang zur Terrasse, auf der Magdi ihr liebevoll zubereitetes Frühstück serviert. Rafael beantwortet jede Frage und ist hilfsbereit, offen und herzlich. Vielen herzlichen Dank für alles!

    La chambre nous a été très agréable ainsi que son accès au balcon. L'emplacement à côté des lignes de bus et du malecon permettent de se rendre facilement dans le centre.
    Leur accueil a été des plus chaleureux, merci encore à cette charmante famille.

    Rafael, his family and their framework to accomodate people are impeccable. The room with its cozy balcony is located in the apartment in such a way that living in harmony with the family goes smoothly. Situation in Havanna is also very good and and the number of good restaurants in area is sufficient.
    Varied breakfast is more than excellent way to start a new day without hurry to try find a place to get lunch and it was absolutely worth price.
    Rafael and Magdi were always there for you and more than ready to solve practical problems that vacationer needed help with.
    Thank you once again Rafael and Magdi ten points!

    Rafael y Magdi son perfeccionismo, luchadores, magos. He pasado dos semanas en diferentes ciudades de Cuba con mi novio y los dos estamos de acuerdo de que no hay mejor casa, mejor compañía, mejores desayunos, mejores jugos, … Con la situación que hay en Cuba, que no es fácil encontrar algo, ellos se esfuerzan y consiguen lo que se proponen. Le deseo todo lo mejor a ellos y a los suyos. Esta casa particular es una recomendación al 200%. Son los mejores, lo prometo!!

    We really enjoyed our stay with Rafa and his wife Magdi, so much so that we came back and stayed with them again at the end of our trip! The breakfast was delicious and they helped us to arrange our transport around Cuba. They even lent us their clothes when our luggage was lost! We couldn’t recommend this casa more! 10/10!

    Rafael and his family were very nice. They gave me very good advices on how to move around in Havana. You should have breakfast at their home. Best one guarantee.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ 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.
