Un "hôtel"/ casa agréable où l'on a dormi 3 nuits, Iris nous a bien aidé pour la suite de notre voyage, elle sest rendue très disponible ! Nous avons passé un très bon séjour ! Prévoir les bouchons d'oreilles par contre le quartier peut être bruyant par moment la nuit ...
I spent 5 days as a solo traveller with Iris and her very kind family. It was perfect. The room was basic but clean, the bed good and aircon works and the rooftop is outstanding for starting the day with a copious breakfast (optional) and relaxing after exploring the city and chat with family members (Alex, special thanks for your help and your English, which is much better than my Spanish!) or fellow travellers staying also here. Can recommend this casa to anyone who likes to experience Havana a bit away from the tourist crowds, yet you can walk easily to the Malecon, even to the old town if you are a good walker, the Hotel Habana Libre and lively Ave 23 / La Rampa is 5 min away. Gracias a todos, espero a una proxima vez!
Le séjour dans cet "casa particular " a été des plus agréable. L'accueil, d'Iris et sa famille, a été des plus chaleureux et les chambres sont très spacieuses et d'un très bon standing.
Le logement est idéalement situé pour visiter La Havane et les conseils de nos hôtes ont été précieux pour nous organiser (taxi, restaurant etc).
Je recommande tout particulièrement cette "casa".
The Antonia is in good location and the rooms are very cleans.
They are kind and helpful.
I recommend this place.
Really welcoming place well situated in La Havana, nice and calm rooms with space and accomodations. Iris and her family are very friendly and there's always a smile for you at the end of the day.
Ha sido sencillamente fantástica. Mi amiga y yo nos sentimos como si fuera nuestra propia casa. Te ayudan absolutamente en todo. Te hacen todo más fácil y nos hicieron reír muchísimo. La habitación está muy bien en todos los sentidos y la terraza dónde se desayuna genial. Todo inmejorable. La recomiendo a todos. Yo repetiré sin duda.
Nice Casa with great host. Breakfast on the roof was very good. Nice neighborhood many restaurants within walking distance. Room was very clean and had everything we needed.
We had a great stay at Hostal Antonia. The flat was nice and clean and the room as well. We ordered the breakfast and had the best omelette with cheese and ham of our holiday!
The flat is quiet central we could walk all over the city. They have a good Internet-connection and they organized a transport from the airport for us.
We recommend Hostal Antonia :)
Suzie (Iris Eloisa’s daughter) was helpful and the room was lovely. Fantastic shower, loads of space, a TV and a very comfy bed. The breakfast was also great and Suzie was very responsive to any queries and was kind enough to arrange my taxi to the airport. All in all, I enjoyed my short stay at her home and I would definitely recommend it.
Die Gastfamilie war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Vermittlung von Taxi collectivo und anderen "casa particulares" in Vinales oder Trinidad hat einwandfrei geklappt. Das Hostal La Antonia liegt in einer Nebenstraße nahe der Universität, sodass man die Sehenswürdigkeiten, Bank, Supermarkt u. ä. gut zu Fuß erreichen kann.
