Great place to stay. Wonderful view. Helpful host
We stayed in casa Amarilis for three days in the beginning of our trip to Cuba. The whole family is friendly and despite a bit of a language barrier, we understood each other sufficiently. As the Cubans are, she was helpful and hospitable, and watched out for us. Gave us tips how to manage in Havana. She was very kind to stay up even though we arrived very late at night.
The room was nice, including a fan, located in two storeys, bathroom upstairs. It was quite amusing in a good way. Located next to Malecon street in the coastline, it delivers a great view to the Caribbean sea.
Breakfast was good, best and strongest coffee we tasted in our trip. Fresh fruits were sweet.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay. Gracias!
Amarilis and Eric were excellent hosts and the room/location are exceptional. She upgraded us to the room that had attached washroom which was very convenient. Hot water, air conditioning, fridge and a great breakfast (5 CUC more per person) more was well worth it.
The view from the balcony for breakfast was worth the value of the whole trip and made this vacation a memorable one.
-Two small things to watch, the stairways up 3 full flights of stairs are very narrow and her english although workable, did not get us into any long conversations. AWESOME none the less!!!
This is hands down the best and only place to stay in havana!! The family is amazing and views are perfect!!! Cant wait to come back and visit!! They dont speak much English but that didnt matter they were amazing safe and beyond clean to stay with! Miss them !!
The house has a great sea view and it was lovely to have a coffee on the balcony. However, be warned, there's a narrow staircase up two steep flights of stairs to the flat. The green walled bedroom also had a small step tight spiral staircase in the corner which led upto our private bathroom.and took some negotiating for 2 relatively small females and impossible in the dark of the night without the bedroom lights on.Sunday is hosts day of rest so no breakfast or information available if you arrive then. Hardly saw host during whole stay and she made no effort to confirm onward collectivo time despite knowing it would be coming 2hours earlier than discussed/agreed with her.
The location is great and the view of the bay (ocean view 2 room) is very fantastic. I was embarrassed that I did not have a toilet seat, but in Havana you will find this is common. It was hard to climb up and down the 3rd floor, but this house is worth the price. Do you know that? This building appears at the beginning of the movie "The fast and the furious 8". If I go back to Cuba again, I would not be able to give up the view of Amarilis.
1층 옆의 기념품샵 커플이 매우 친절합니다. 올라쿠바 책에도 나온 집이에요 ㅋㅋ 옆의 식당 castropol에는 해산물, 특히 랑고스타나 새우요리는 없습니다. 맛은 있습니다만 좀 비싼 편이에요. 참고하시길!
This is a wonderful place to stay in Havana. The location is the best you could imagine - right on the Malecon and five minutes walk from the centre of old Havana. The family are extremely kind and charming, I was only sorry that our weak Spanish prevented us from having proper conversations. The extended breakfast is delicious and well worth the 5Cucs- a massive dinner plate of cut-up fruit, a huge omelette, bread, freshly made juice and whole flasks of coffee and hot milk. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and with a good en-suite shower room. It is a steep climb to the top floor, but worth it for the view over the Malecon and the Atlantic
Perfectly situated location with sight and sound of the ocean (and the cars). Breakfast on the beautiful balcony - Amarilis and her husband are very friendly and helpful hosts, the room was perfectly clean.
Muchas gracias chicos para hospeder a nosotros, estuvo un placer visitar La Habana!
Amarilis and Ever are the most gracious hosts. Their Casa Particular is right on the Malecon, right next to a really good restaurant, and easy walking distance to Paseo Jose' Marti (PRADO) which is my favorite venue in Havana.
Their house is VERY clean, Amarilis can make great breakfasts, and can help making any connections with taxis either to the Aeropuerto or with taxi collectivos to other parts of CUBA.
If you are able, stay in the front room which overlooks the Malecon and the Bahia de Florida, very dreamy!
We was so happy to stay here! The hole family was very freindly, caring and helpful with breakfast on the balconi, transportation, contacts in Havanna and storing of luggage. We had a nice and perfectly clean room with private bathrom.
