Gastgeber höflich und nett, leider war es nicht das Zimmer, wie zunächst gebucht, es war auch keine Privatunterkunft, sondern ein Hostal
Sono stata da Iris Eloisa per 4 notti con mio marito per festeggiare il mio compleanno ed è stata un’esperienza meravigliosa. Ma camera dove siamo stati era molto accogliente pulita e con tutto il necessario. Susy, la proprietaria, in particolare con noi è stata deliziosa e sempre disponibile ad aiutarci con il wifi, e a consigliarci i posti migliori dove andare a mangiare e a divertirci la sera, e anche per tornare all’aeroporto. ci piacerebbe tornare!
Our stay in Havana was for 3 nights 18-21. of july 2019. We were travelling as a family at 5. We arrived late . The host was not there,but had arranged the man from the top restaurant to let us in. Unfortunatley he did not speak any english and we no spanish. Fortunately gestures can do alot so we found out! The rooms were large and clean. Refrigerator with nice, cold still water,beers and soda. The aircondition in the first room were very noisy. The breakfast was fine and with plenty of it !! The daughter of the host arranged the transport for the next destination.
We spent 3 nights in Havana. We had a really nice stay in the Casa of Iris. We were warmly welcomed and were able to experience great hospitality. The accommodation was very clean and our hosts always friendly and helpful.
Muchas Gracias for the wonderful time in Havana

Die Casa liegt zentral im Stadtteil Vedado und somit sehr nah an der Uni. Für Studenten also perfekt. Das Zimmer wird jeden Tag gereinigt und wirkt sauber. Leider sind die Gastgeber Abends und Morgens schwer zu erreichen, deshalb nur 4 von 5 Herzen.
Ubicacion muy bueno.
I enjoyed my stay, except the restaurant where the 4 staff lit up their cigarettes and smoked during my breakfast and dinner. It spoilt the meal for me.
When I commented the younger table attendant said it is normal.
If you want British Europeans to stay in your place from England you need to be aware of how to treat tourists like us. We don’t smoke in eating areas as it is unhygienic, anti-social and can cause allergies for some people like me. I felt I’ll.
I explained that touching your mouth whilst smoking, not washing your hands and then touching food transfers germs from one person to their food.
It is not allowed when we are providing a service to customers.
That was a significant problem for me.
Room and service Ok- but best of all was the restaurant above.
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 ...
