    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.

    We enjoyed staying in the casa (more of a hostel) for 3 nights, it is well located at is it close to all the main points of interest and the room was nice and clean with the air con working fine. Ivis and Jose were great hosts and provided us the information we required as well as organizing for us to be picked up in a collectivo for Vinales. In addition you can have a nice breakfast and dinner at the restaurant.

    The place looks just like the pictures. I stayed 7 nights and it was too long to stay here. The vibe got a little weird with the host and staff and you can feel it in the air. The bartenders at the restaurant downstairs where not nice at all.
    The food was subpar. But they tried.
    The room was kind of ok.
    The air conditioner was great.
    I know I would not stay here again. The absolute best part of the stay was Yamile. She made breakfast in the morning and always greeted us with a beautiful smile and warm heart. She also cleaned the rooms and was very thorough and lovely. Sarai was also sweet and helpful but it felt like the bosses didn't appreciate her helping us. Too much drama for my liking.

    Peu de contact avec l'hôte dont les chambres et immeubles fonctionnent plus comme celles d'un hôtel, mais contact agréable malgré tout.
    Les chambres ne sont pas toutes très "cosy" (néon au plafond, parfois porte qui donne sur un salon partagé etc) et on ne sait pas trop à l'avance sur quoi on va tomber mais globalement satisfaisantes pour le prix et l'emplacement, et elles font très bien l'affaire pour une nuit ou deux ! Je n'hésiterai pas à réserver à nouveau pour un futur passage à la Havane.

    My stay with Ivis was incredible! Ivis was a gracious host... going above and beyond to ensure my needs were met. Simply, Ivis and Jose were a family away from home. Plus, the food at Asahi was simply delicious!

    If you are planning a trip to Cuba and would like to experience authentic Cuban living in Central Havana... stay with Ivis and her family!

    Eu, meu marido e meu filho gostamos muito do atendimento e das acomodações da casa de Ivis.
    O café da manhã com frutas, pães e ovos muito bem servido.
    O restaurante com comida boa e com preço diferenciado para o hóspede.
    Suas funcionárias bem atenciosas e simpáticas.

    Well, when we got there the situation wasn't one of the best as first landed in Havana, there was a young man waiting for us in the street claiming to be Ivis's son, and that we were relocated to a casa nearby. By nature I'm pretty sceptical and as Ivis confirmed the booking few days before our arrival I got suspicious. In the end it was Ivis's son and we were relocated, all in good faith. So forth we didn't get the opportunity to stay at Ivis. But we had a great stay where we were relocated, Kati's breakfast was the best in Cuba and she was the sweetest lady we met during our holiday.

    Ivis was very helpful, friendly and made us feel very welcomed. It was a very nice room that got cleaned every day and the breakfast was lovely!

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?

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.
