I could not rate my stay high enough. It was absolutely wonderful. I am 18 years old and stayed with my best friend in the family home. We felt so well looked after and safe. The location is excellent. A hotel with WiFi across the road, many amazing restaurants 2 minutes away as well as lovely sights to see! Ernesto and Irelis were so kind and helpful. We had great privacy in their home but also lovely company if we wished to have a chat with Ernesto or Irelis. Irelis cooks delicious food and it’s definitely worth requesting meals!
It was the most incredible experience!
Thank you to Ernesto and Irelis!
Nous avons passé un agréable moment chez Ernesto Javier et sa maman. La chambre est très propre et confortable. Vraiment bien située pour visiter la Habana Vieja. Le petit déjeuner était copieux et délicieux.
Sin dudarlo volvería a reservar con ellos, son extremadamente amables y con toda la disposición de ayudar. Su casa y habitaciones súper limpias y con una ubicación excelente para conocer la ciudad.
Beautiful house and room, many facilities (e.g. laundry) but not wi-fi and the noise from the street might be annoying if you are sensitive. The house is big, sunny and clean and the breakfast is beautiful. It is very close to the Habana Vieja and Habana Centro and many buses pass by. Irelis is a wonderful host, very polite and helpful! Thank you very much for everything :)
The room is very spacious and clean, so is the shower. It also has everything you may need in it!
The location is super central and you’re in the heart of the old city. Even if you just wonder off you’ll find many interesting things to see and do.
You immediately feel like part of the family and will be spoiled with delicious mango juice and coffee!! Everybody is ready to answer any questions no matter how silly they are or make your stay more comfortable.
I cannot wait to be back & thank you for everything!!
We really enjoyed our stay. Close to the center and Irelis is very friendly and helpfull.
We had a great stay at Irelis house. She is helpfull and kind. We really felt at home.
She helped us with any questions we had.
The busstop in front of the house is noisy but if you sleep in the room with the two single beds it will be fine.
Excellent accueil. Un des garçons nous attendait même dehors à la porte. Tous parlent anglais et les deux garçons comprennent bien le français et parlent un peu. Les déjeûners excellents. Localisation excellente pour le vieux Havane. Informations touristiques excellentes. Seul point négatif: rue très bruyante, mais on nous fournit les bouchons pour mieux dormir et c'est efficace. Nous y retournerions sans hėsiter. Lise et Jean-Guy
The casa is wonderful, excellent location, great room with little balcony, nice host and fantastic breakfast.
One minus point is that the room is noisy in the morning, as it is situated at A bussy street at a busstation.
We will book her again when we are coming back!
Amazing place to stay!! I was with two other young women and we felt extremely safe and comfortable at Irelis' place. It's right in Old Havana, and Irelis was a perfect host. I'd recommend this place to anyone without hesitation!
