    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.

    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.

    The best part of my stay in Cuba was the Casa Particulars and the best Casa is Casa Yany. Yany made my time in Havana really memorable. She gave me so much help organising taxis, places to stay and advice on what to do there that she became travel agent Yany. Big breakfasts to start the day and yummy dinner in the evening. She is so kind and generous with her time that I was always looking forward to returning back each evening. Her home is always super clean and in a great location to walk to all the major attractions in and around central Havana. Very highly recommended!

    Estuve con mi pareja los dos primeros días alojados con Yani en la Habana. Estuvimos muy cómodos y a gusto, como si estuviésemos en nuestra casa. Es muy amable y simpática. La casa es acogedora y la habitación tiene aire acondicionado que es Cuba es fundamental para poder dormir que hace mucho calor. Prepara unos buenos desayunos y esta dispuesta a ayudarte en lo que necesites! Un saludo Yani desde Madrid!!!
    I was with my girlfriend the first two days staying with Yani in Havana. We were very comfortable , as if we were in our house. She is very friendly. The house is cozy and the room has air conditioning that is essential to sleep that is very hot in Cuba. Prepare a good breakfast and is ready to help you in whatever you need! A greeting Yani from Madrid!

    I had the most fantastic time staying at Yany’s place! She lives within walking distance of Parque Central, and also the university where I was studying. Incredibly fun, helpful and friendly: Yany came to collect me from the airport and always helped me out with whatever problems or questions I had, however big or small. Her cooking is absolutely delicious, and Yany really knows how to throw a fun dinner party.
    Ella habla muy buen Ingles y me ayudó mucho con mí español.
    Would really recommend to anyone! I hope to visit my new friends Yany and Pach again in the future!!
