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!

Great hosts and a very authentic. The whole family is very nice and helpful. You should take the breakfast on the balcony, perfect way to start the day. Accommodation located in the center and easy to explore the city by foot. Would rebook anytime! Thanks for having us
Lovely hosts, nice view from the room, good breakfast and daily clean sheets.
The house is very well placed and the room have an amazing view on the Malecon. However, after two weeks in Cuba we found the breakfast a little bit small compare to what we had on other Casa particulares. Apart from that it was a pleasant stay and we recommend this room.

Oh my! We had a such wonderful stay with Amarilis and her family. What generous and gracious hosts. The home is perfectly located to explore Havana and the view from the balcony of the Malecon and the sea is the best way to begin and end your day. The home is immaculate and the breakfast is tasty and plentiful. On our last morning, my teenage son wanted to go about Havana and take pictures. Amarilis got a reasonably priced taxi for him and off he went to explore the city through the eye of his camera lens for a couple hours. It is this sort of individualized care and attention that distinguishes your time at Doors to Heaven. But the best part of our homestay was simply feeling like part of the family. The conversation was was rich and full of laughter. We made new friends. And we look forward to coming back and staying with "our Cuban family" again.
Room with the best view in Havana !! The place was quite big, clean and comfortable. Eber and the family were so hospitable and friendly. They even organised a taxi for me to the airport very early in the morning. I will stay again if I come back. Highly recommended.
fuimos en la casa de Amarillis y su marido en Enero y fue semplicemente FANTASTICO! El lugar es muy bonito y muy practico, muy cerca de el centro de la ciudad Havana vieja. We warmly suggest you to stay at her place!
