Very nice apartment in a beautiful part of Havanna at the Malecon, directly with view to the ocean. Very nice hosts. The Apartment is located in the second floor, after some steep stairs there is the beautiful apartment with two nice rooms (bathroom en-Suite). Breakfast at the balcony with view to the sea and the old castle at the harbour. Walking distance to the City, however through some minor streets, so consider a taxi. We recommend this place.
I stayed with Amarlis and family July 2018. I travel often and have to say this location was perfect! Right on the Malecon, centrally located and beautiful room views. The family is so personable, I am so happy with my stay! I highly recommend staying with Amarlis and nowehere else! What an incredible home and country!
Ir a Havana en Julio y me encanta este casa! Amaralis y la familia son muy amable. La casa es circa de muchas cosas, y puedes ver el mar de su cuarto. Todos mis dias eran perfecto- vistan a este familia!
Maison d'hôte bien située pour visiter La Havane à pied.
Perfect location at the Malecon. Open your window and see the Atlantic Ocean. Have breakfast at the balcony with a wonderful view over the Malecon. Go by your feet to all sightseeings in Havana.
Amarilis and her family are really nice and friendly hosts. I got a very warm welcome. Amerilis woke me up in the night before my early return flight. You will never find that in a hotel. When I return to Havana, I will sleep here again for sure. Thank you!
I had a wonderful room with a good bed and my own bathroom. Everything was very clean and there was daily housekeeping. Tasty breakfast with omelett, bread, cheese, juice, fruit plate, tea and coffee.
Fue un placer quedarme en esta casa. Amarilis y la familia siempre estaban atento y disponibles para ayudar en cualquier cosa. El apartamento estaba limpio y muy cómodo.
This homestay is located beautifully right next tot the Malecon. This allows for a beautiful view from the bedroom and when having breakfast. Amarilis and family are always prepared to answer questions or arrange reservations that are difficult for tourists. 5 stars!
Nos gustó bastante quedarnos en la casa de Ever y Amarilis! La familia es muy amable y atenta, y con gusto apoyan con organizar excursiones o buscar casa en otra ciudad si siguen viajando en Cuba. El desayuno es preparado con frutas frescas y otras cosas reposteria casera, un excelente inicio al dia. La vista de nuestro cuarto fue fenomenal, directo al mar. Con gusto volveremos, gracias por su hospitalidad!
Buena ubicación y personas incribleles...mejor no tiene
It was a nice experience staying at Amarilis' place. They were very friendly and helpful. We stayed there our first days in Havana and also our last days. We had the two different rooms, the first room the shower did not work very well, the second room we had problems with the toilet. But beside that we would recommend this place! The view is great and the location is superbe: just a 10 min walk to Havana Vieja.
Muy buena acogida en la Casa Amarilis, toda la familia es muy acogedora y adorable.
La casa está muy bien situada en el maleçon, justo delante de una magnífica puesta de sol.
También está muy bien situado para visitar La Habana, todo está a poca distancia de la casa.
La habitación tiene todo lo que necesitas y el desayuno es delicioso.
Muchas gracias por su bienvenida.
Nos vemos la próxima vez con mucho gusto!
