    Sehr nettes, liebenswertes Päärchen.
    Mayra hat uns weitere Unterkünfte für unserer Reise empfohlen und organisier. Ebenfalls für das Collectivo für unsere Weiterreise hatte sie einen tollen Kontak. Zimmer sind eifach aber sauber. Wir können diese Unterkunft wärmstens empfehlen.

    Mayra and her husband were wonderful hosts. They treated us like family while we were there (calling the doctor when we fell sick) and were very helpful in explaining how to navigate Cuba. We were able to gain their advice on great accommodation in Trinidad, transportation to Vinales and Trinidad, places to eat in Havana, and other miscellaneous items like the conversion between CUP and CUC. Even though we had one fluent Spanish speaker in our group, we were able to converse in French as well. The rooms had clean sheets, moderately sized beds for two people, functioning A/C's and fans, and heated hot water. We were there in the summer months so it often still felt warm in spite of having the A/C's and fans on, but this was more likely due to the weather than the facilities.
    Breakfast was simple but fresh and included fruits, bread, omelettes, and coffee. If you can go earlier than April, I'd recommend a visit in February when the weather is a bit cooler but definitely stay with Mayra - we can't thank her enough for taking such good care of us! It felt like home away from home.

    We stayed at Mayra's house for some nights and it was absolutely amazing! Mayra gave us useful advice on what to do and where to go in Havana and before we left she helped us planning and organizing our trips to other Cuban cities.
    If you are looking for a place where you can feel at home and get to know the loveliest hosts in Cuba you should stay in this house!

    En Havana estuvimos unas noches en la casa de Mayra y nos encantó!
    Mayra nos ayudó bastante: nos recomendó lugares bonitos que se pueden visitar en Havana y al final ins ayudó a planificar nuestro viaje por otras ciudades en Cuba.
    Si se quieren sentir en casa y conocer a los dueños mas amables de cuba, les recomiendo que se queden en esa casa!

    Nous sommes restées 4 nuits chez Mayra. C'était un séjour très agréable chez un couple charmant. Mayra a vraiment pris le temps de nous donner de précieux conseils et de répondre à toutes nos questions. Elle a été un peu notre "maman" cubaine !
    Prendre le petit déjeuner dans le patio était très agréable, et le smoothie fait maison un délice !
    Nous avons pu acheter des bouteilles d'eau d'1,5L auprès d'elle pour un bon prix, et c'était bien pratique.
    Bonne situation géographique : de bons restaurants à quelques minutes à pied, des taxis à proximité, et pas trop loin du centre ville.
    La maison est très propre et bien entretenue.
    Une bonne adresse, on recommande !

    We spent 4 nights with Mayra. It was a very nice stay, and they are a charming couple.
    Mayra really took the time to give us great advice and answer all of our questions. She was a bit like our Cuban mom!
    Having breakfast in the patio was awesome and the homemade smoothie was delicious.
    It was very convenient to be able to buy 1.5L bottles from her for a good price.
    Her house has a good location: a short walk to some really good restaurants, taxis nearby and not too far from the city center.
    Her house is sparkling clean ans and well kept.
    We highly recommend it!

    La meilleure adresse à La Havane! La maison est top, très bien située dans la ville (Malecon, Habana Vieja ou le Capitole ne sont pas loin), les chambres sont spacieuses et confortables, avec tout ce dont vous aurez besoin. Mayra et Garlobo sont adorables et accueillants, d'excellents hôtes qui, en plus, vous aideront pour le reste de votre séjour à Cuba si vous avez besoin! Ils vous donneront plein de bons conseils, pourront réserver des taxis, des taxis collectifs, mais aussi des chambres chez d'autres habitants, également très sympathiques. De plus, ils vous mettront à l'aise et seront très compréhensifs, même si vous ne parlez pas très bien espagnol à la base. Le petit déjeuner est aussi excellent. Bref, si vous souhaitez vous rendre dans ce superbe pays qu'est Cuba, n'hésitez surtout pas à réserver chez Mayra! J'en garderai un excellent souvenir et reviendrai chez elle avec plaisir lors de mon prochain séjour là-bas!

    Mayra and her husband were amazing hosts. So incredibly kind and welcoming! We definitely had a language barrier but it was still such a lovely experience. Mayra booked us a tour in Viñales and booked us a ride to the airport. Both of those drivers were also friendly and made us feel so welcomed.

    The location of their casa is perfect. El malecon is only 10 mins away walking. It's about 20 mins walking to old Havana and just a few blocks from the university. Revolution plaza is also in walking distance.

    The room itself was great, with our own bathroom and AC. Breakfast was also great and such a perfect way to start our mornings. I wouldn't hesitate to book with Mayra the next time we are in Havana!

     Thanks Jenn for your comment, you were also incredible hosts and it is true that we could not converse as I would have liked but I see that we made you feel comfortable with us and of course if you return you will continue to be welcome to our house.
    A kiss for both,
    Mayra and Garlobo

    Gracias Jenn por tu comentario, ustedes tambien fueron increibles huesped y es cierto que no pudimos conversar como me hubiera gustado pero veo que logramos que ustedes se sintieran a gusto con nosotros y claro que si regresan seguiran siendo bienvenidos a nuestra casa.
    Un beso para los dos,
