We had a great time in Casa Randy. The room was nice, with a little balcony with a view. You could see the capitolio in the distance.The location (havana centro) is great, because it felt peaceful and more spatial compared with havana vieja. Also, a lot of the sights and the romantic malecon are close and in walking distance. Fanny and Randy are really kind people. We felt so welcome. Fanny was really helpful in planning our activities and advised us some nice restaurants. Also, she told us some things about Cuban live. We won't forget our stay here. ¡Muchas gracias!
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Great room in a great location with a great family. And Fanny's English is excellent.
If you come to Havanna you have to stay with Fanny and her family. Even tho our trip was short we could not have imagined a more genuine, warm hearted and welcoming family then this one. Fanny helped us with everything from planning our days in Havana to teaching us about the Cuban culture and ways of life. Her home is also incredibly beautiful and is in the perfect location to do everything that the city has to offer. Every morning Fanny and her husband would prepare a five star breakfast that we honestly looked forward to. We are so thankful for our experience and honestly staying at Fannys house was a big part of what made our trip such a unforgettable adventure.
The casa is located just on the outskirts of Old Havana, the room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. Fanny was extremely helpful, am grateful for all her help in sorting out a ride to Trinidad for me.
Fanny et sa famille sont des gens adorables. Ils ont réservé un taxi pour nous de l'aéroport à la Havane , Ils étaient là pour nous accueillir et nous donner de bons conseils et adresses sur la Havane. Les petits déjeuners sont top! Les chambres propres. Bref, Parfait!
Fanny and her family were wonderful hosts. We did not only have a great, clean room, but we also got a lovely breakfast. Fanny explained us kindly where to go and where to eat without spending too much money. She gave tips in doing things people from Cuba do. She told us a lot about their life in Havanna. All together it was a great and interesting time in the household of this lovely family. The apartment has a great structure. From outside it looks rather basic like most of the houses in Havanna. From inside you can see, that it is a traditional house with lovely tiles on the flor and stucco ceiling. The old elevator is still running. The apartment has a great location just 2 minutes walking distance from old Havanna.
We would always come back to stay with Fanny. Thank you so much!
Fantastic stay with Fanny and Randy. Perfect spot in the middle of Old Havana. Fanny is (with her mother and her husband) a really nice, lovely and enthusiastic host, making you feel at home and serving great breakfast. When Fanny can help you, she will help you with information and tips. Great room with airco and a own shower with hot water. We experienced no noise from outside in our room. So perfect stay - 5 stars! We will Go back! Thanks Fanny!
Super séjour Fanny et son mari sont très sympas, Fanny nous a donné pleins de conseils, le logement est très bien situé, la chambre est très bien équipé et le petit déjeuné était bon et copieux. Merci pour votre accueil
Je recommande cet hôte!
Fanny is absolutely the most amazing host who is looking out for you and helping you in any way possible. There is a great atmosphere at the casa and it was such a good stay. The Casa is very close to everything and I would definitely recommend staying here while in Havana
