    Un accueil précipité. Peu d'échanges. Une chambre propre mais sans personnalité, ni décoration, ni mêm une fenêtre. Ce n'est pas une maison coloniale.
    Petit déjeuner dans une salle sombre à l'arrière d'un restaurant et peu qualitatif. Du niveau d'un hôtel très bas de gamme !

    L'accueil d'Ivis et José a été exceptionnel ! Une magnifique casa de type colonial et des chambres avec tous les services souhaités. Le quartier est calme et le centre historique est à moins de 10 mn à pied. Ivis et José ont été totalement disponibles pour gérer toutes nos demandes (taxis, réservations...) avec une grande efficacité. Le paladar au rez de chaussée est parfait pour se restaurer. Nous remercions vivement Ivis et José pour leur gentillesse et tout ce qu'ils nous ont apporté pour rendre notre séjour agréable. C'est une adresse que nous recommandons sans réserve et où nous retournerons avec plaisir. Merci à vous deux.

    We enjoyed staying here. It is a small hostel in one of these big old characteristic houses. Nice extra is the rooftop terrace but the balcony in the front is also nice to watch the daily life outside. We liked walking towards the water where some nice restaurants are located but there is also a restaurant conveniently located downstairs.

    Ivis ist eine sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die auch für weniger gut Spanisch sprechende Besucher mit Händen und Füßen alles erklären kann. Die Lage der Casa ist super, mittendrin im weniger touristischen Centro Habana. Das meiste ist Flussläufen erreichbar.
    Es gibt einen Balkon zur Straße, der zur abendlichen Cerveza einlädt. Das Zimmer selbst hatte leider nur ein Fenster zum überdachten Innenbereich. Ansonsten ist alles da, was benötigt wird.

    Chegamos eu, minha mãe, meu pai e namorada, no dia 31 de dezembro de 2018 em Havana. Fomos incrivelmente bem recebidos por Ivys e família. Passamos a virada do ano juntos, celebramos o novo ano e nos despedimos do ano que terminara como se fosse em família, apesar de termos nos conhecido a pouquíssimas horas. Ficamos até o dia 9 de janeiro de 2019 e não consigo imaginar uma maneira de ser melhor recebido do que a maneira como Ivys e sua família nos tratou.
    A rua Lealtad - e o nome da rua certamente não é aleatório - fica no centro de Havana. Para quem gosta de andar, é um lugar perfeito porque fica cerca de 10 a 15 minutos de caminhada de todos os mais importantes pontos turísticos da cidade. Fica também próximo das praças de onde saem os ônibus coletivos e turísticos.
    Cuba e a cidade de Havana tem problemas parecidos com aqueles que ocorrem em outros países latino-americanos. A violência urbana, no entanto, não é um problema. Embora a beleza do centro de Havana não esteja visível nas ruelas um tanto mal cuidadas nem na penumbra que chega com a noite, para o visitante sensível e atento, a beleza da cidade noutras coisas. A localização da casa de Ivys nos permite alcançar isso.
    Ivys também nos tornou possível conhecer outras partes de Cuba já que ela intermediou contatos com motoristas de táxi que nos levaram aos variados destinos.
    Os custos em Cuba, para um turista, devem ser contados em euros e o custo barato da vida se restringe aos cubanos. A vida do turista é cara e, portante, deve-se tentar fazer valer cada centavo.
    Eu posso dizer, em meu nome e no nome dos demais acompanhantes de viagem, que não pode haver anfitrião mais generoso, atencioso e carinho que Ivys e sua família. Eu voltarei para Havana outras vezes e, em sendo possível, em todas elas me hospedarei com Ivys.

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
