    Yannis home is a wonderfull place. From here you can start to old and new Habana and Yanni stands allways helpfully to your side.
    She orgenized Salsalessons in a dancingscholl near by, she knows where we can have a good dinner, she prepaired a delicious breakfast. Furthermore she orgenized our next casa in Viniales and all transfers we needed.
    In this time we got a new friend and we will come back again. Many thanks for that amazing time we could shared with Yani in Habana.

    Staying at Yanepsy was great! It felt like home. She helped me to organize trips, taxis, etc. We went out together and had a lovely time.
    It is a save neighborhood and easy to walk to the city center (capitol).
    I wish you the best Yanepsy.
    Love, Julia .

    The stay at Yany I really liked. She really took good care of me. She could show me some of Havana. At any time I would want to live with her again.

    Honestly, it was the best experience we had (my wife and I) on staying with a family home. Yanepsy, is an extremely helpful person, with a noble heart, who assured us a stay full of positive energies.

    - Honestamente, fue la mejor experiencia que tuvimos (mi esposa y yo) en hospedaje en casa de una familia. Yanepsy, es una persona extremadamente servicial, de un corazón noble, que nos aseguró una estancia plena de energías positivas.

    Sa maison est très propre et très bien située... 15 mn pour être dans le vieux Havana!!
    Ses petits déjeuners copieux et très bons... elle est adorable et je vous la recommande vivement.

    Yany was the most amazing host anyone could ask for. From cooking us many delicious meals, to organising various activities and inviting us to a family party, we had so much fun staying in Casa Yany! We loved the company of Yany’s dog, Nina, who is super friendly and loves cuddles. The location is ideal and safe and within walking distance to Havana’s main attractions. We would highly recommend anybody visiting Havana, to stay at Casa Yany!

    Casa Yany is the best of La Habana. The city is in the heart and she shares it with you. Whether it is you first time or you want a real experience then this is the place to stay.

    Yani is the cutiest person and Casa Yany is the best host in Cuba. Yany is so lovely and did everything for us. Its felt as we were like in a second home. She explained us everything and made the best vegan breakfast in Habana. When you want to sit and talk with her, she always finds time. She speaks perfect english and is very helpful, if you need anything or have any questions. Her small dog Nina <3 is very cute and takes every cuddle she can get. The room is very clean, including an own bathroom and toilet. We already miss Yany and Nina very much and we will come back. Muchos gracias por todo<3.
