About the Homestay
Odalys House is a great choice to stay in Havana and enjoy the attractive cultural life that characterizes it. Located in San Lázaro Street, parallel to the Havana Malecón and its beautiful sea, in Centro Habana, it is close to both Old Havana, with its museums, squares, churches, restaurants and beautiful places, as well as Vedado, the modern part of the city where theaters, clubs, cabarets, restaurants invite you to spend a beautiful night.
The house is spacious, comfortable, with high ceilings and wide doors and windows through which natural light penetrates. Rooms with air conditioning and minibar provide for a good night's rest after an intense day. A balcony overlooking San Lázaro street allows you to observe the life of the city, while a terrace overlooks the Callejón de Hamell, famous for the rumba that vibrates alive forever. We are always at your disposal to help you have the happy stay you have always dreamed of.

Que decir... gran viaje el que hicimos por Cuba i qué mejor que empezar por la Habana en casa de Odalys!!! todo fantástico y una familia muy atenta!
A parte del trato, decir que la casa y sus estancias son muy limpias y correctas. Además está muy bien situado! La recomendamos, si volvemos seguro que repetimos!
Me and my brother had a very nice time in Havana at Odalys' casa! It is far one of the best casas we had in Cuba.
The room was really clean and spacious. Also the shared bathroom was very clean which I find really important. The breakfast Odalys or her daughter makes (at your requested time) was also good; fresh fruit, eggs, bread, fresh juice, coffee and tea,...
Not only the casa itself is great; Odalys is just a lovely & genuine person.
Doubts about your itinerary or next casa? She will help you. Also when you need a pick up from the airport or a taxi collective she will call someone.
Thank you Odalys and co for your hospitality!!
Had a wonderful homestay here! Odalys' was a lovely, helpful host and an interesting person to talk to - she knows a TON about her community and her neighborhood. The apartment is large and well-kept, and the location is great - in part of Havana where there is more authentic Cuban life (a safe distance from the intense tourism of the old part of the city). Highlights include yummy breakfasts, mango juice, air conditioning, and good conversation!
Odalys and her family are great hosts. They will do everything to help you and look after you.
Odalys, ya sabes todo pero una vez más, le agradezco de corazón por todo: su simpatía, su cariño, su energía... Fue un gran placer compartir estos momentos con su familia, y también Irene quien nos ha cuidado como reinas. Siempre me acordaré de mi estancia habanera con Uds. !
Ademas, la casa es muy agradable, limpia, y bien ubicada - así que fue un doble placer quedarse acá.
Ojalá nos veremos de nuevo, y obviamente recomiendo totalmente esta casa!
Odalys and her family were very welcoming and friendly. Our flight was delayed and we arrived late at night but Odalys was waiting for us with a welcome drink and was happy to chat to us.
Although we spoke little spanish, Odalys was always willing to communicate as she had her translate app on her phone. She was good at giving recommendations and also helping to organise our onward journey.
The room was clean and tidy and breakfast was good.
All in all a very enjoyable stay! Thank you Odalys and family.
I did not had the chance to know Odaly's house because we had some changes in our vacations plan and canceled the reservation, but in the end, we end up going anyway to Habana in that night and Odalys was so kind to help us getting a room in her neighbor house after arriving at Habana at night. It was really nice to meet Odalys and her neighbor Maite, and to talk with them about the May 1st parade and to have advices about it.
My trip to Cuba was filled with all sorts of experiences some of which were excellent and some of which were clearly lessons for me. Fortunately, when I was experiencing the challenges (injury and stomach issues), I had the beauty of staying at the homestay of Odalys Padilla and her family. We had an amazing breakfast offered (a little extra charge) to us every day. The rooms were spare but cleaned every day and sheets changed often. I truly felt like I was family there and met so many amazing folks from all over whom Odalys treated with the same care that she gave me. Odalys invited us to her family's New Year celebration which was a special treat.
WONDERFUL TIME IN HAVANA. Thanks, Odalys.
