The apartement appeared VERY different from pictures... Agreed price for my three week stay - wich I asked and got confirmed twice!! - showed to be a scam on arrival... :( Also all communication online was in english - on arrival it was impossible to communicate when Liria only spoke spanish... :(
Lyria is super nice and very informative. As soon as I arrived there, she showed me what's around and helped me get lots of stuff. Her apartment is very clean and spacious. I strongly recommend you stay here. I'm sure 10times better than staying at hotel. Oh also the location is great. Very close calle 23 which is lots of local people hang out. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars there too. Thank you Lyria!
Sehr liebvolle und hilfsbereite Gastgeber.
We stayed at Liria and Mario, for 15 days, in August.
We received a warm welcome. They took care of us, kindly, providing us with all the information we needed and even traveling with us. They were generous, patient and understanding.
Liria and Mario watched every details of our well-being.
Despite the fact that we did not speak Spanish at all, they did everything to make us understand each other well. They introduced us to a friend who spoke English and she explained everything about Cuba ... The two currencies, security, purchases ... She left us her number, to call her when necessary.
During our stay, it was my birthday and they pointed it out by offering me a cake
The place is in a beautiful artist's lane. It is the quietest place in the heart of Havana. The apartment is spacious and independent. For privacy, you could not ask for more.
Liria and Mario are our most beautiful human discoveries in Cuba.
We hope to return and recommend this place without hesitation.
My visit in Havana was an amazing experience that Liria and Mario made wonderful indeed... I had a relaxed stay in their well equipped apartment located in an original and nice place, easy to reach and well-located to visit Havana even by foot. I'll never forget the breakfasts they prepared for me, an ideal start for the whole day!!! Liria and Mario were great hosts indeed, always present and ready to offer their needful help ... I sudden felt like at home!!!
I'll definitely remember their warm and kind friendliness. Being guest of them has been an exceptional gift for me. It will remind me of my trip and represent my best souvenir from Cuba! I definitely recommend to join them if planning a stay in Havana
The apartment was nice and clean. Jorge and his family were very nice and helpful.
I cannot recommend Liria and her apartment enough. First of all, my flight was delayed by five hours, meaning I arrived around 4:30 in the morning. The airport taxi Liria had arranged was still waiting for me and, when I arrived at the apartment, both she (who doesn't even live there) and the family that stay below (who provide breakfast and dinner if requested and help with any issues you have while staying there) were awake and waiting to greet me. Both her and the family below are wonderful, kind people. Jorge Jr, the eldest child, speaks very good English and was always around to translate when help was needed with anything.
I initially booked two nights, but when my friends arrived on the second day and saw the spacious apartment with two bedrooms (which they told me was far nicer than where they'd stayed previously, and significantly cheaper), we decided to ask if we could all stay there for four additional nights, which Liria was more than happy to accommodate.
The street the apartment is located on is extremely unique and has a very nice, safe feel to it. There are things to do near-by, and a taxi to the main tourist area is quick and inexpensive. Taxis are easy to flag down if casually exploring, but, when we were looking for something specific at a certain time (a taxi to the airport or railway station, for example), the family downstairs were more than happy to arrange it. When we mentioned that we wanted to go to Hemingway's house one day, they asked if we would like them to sort something for us. They arranged a driver to take us there, wait for us as long as we wanted to stay, then return us home, all for a very reasonable price.
My friends and I had a great time in Havana, and our experience was made significantly better by the kindness and hospitality of Liria and, even more so, the family below.
Upon leaving, Liria was kind enough to present us with a parting gift as a token of appreciation for staying there, when, if anything, it was her that deserved a gift from us.
I highly recommend staying in Liria's apartment and can, without doubt, say that if I am to return to Havana in the future, this is where I plan to stay again.
while above the artist lane with graffiti and interesting sculptures, this apartment is in quite a 'local' area of La Habana, with a 5-6 block walk to get to cabs or restaurants in the National hotel area. A meter taxi to or from old town was around the 10cuc mark, but a non metered driver could go as low as 5cuc.
Breakfast and dinner are provided by a family that live below the apartment. The portions are very generous and the cooking wonderful, I would have eaten their food more, only it's lonely in the apartment by oneself (single traveller) as opposed in a restaurant and meeting new acquaintances.
Very friendly host and right in the middle of cultural Havana. The Malecon is just 5 minutes walk away.
Fantastic people! Liria and her familia were so nice to us! We booked last minute and she got back to me right away! We were travelling with a 16 months old toddler and in all they really did everything to accommodate us as best as can be. They are located in the heart of old Havana and it was very convenient for us. The apartment was spacious enough for us even if we stayed only one night. Everything was very clean. They were really keen on giving us advices and directions and we had great conversations. Highly recommend the place if you want real contact and genuine conversations with real people. Saludos a toda la familia y gracias otra vez Liria!
