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.

    Hi all,

    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, 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!
    Abrazos

    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.

    Thank you, Jasen, for evaluating our work. We enjoy attending to people as friendly and educated as you, with a sense of humor and joy, in addition to the desire to know other cultures and ways of life. Here they have their house forever. A kiss from Odalys.

    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.

    Gracias Amy por evaluar así nuestro trabajo. Esos días de diciembre y enero fueron magníficos y aún hoy lamentamos que tu salud te jugara una mala pasada, pues eres una magnífica persona y fue realmente un placer tenerte con nosotros. La cena de año nuevo, el intercambio de regalos, los juegos de domino son dignos de recuerdo, y de eso justamente se trata Homestay, no de ofrecer lujo frío, sino calor humano, compartir culturas y tradiciones. Ojala estes bien, mucha suerte.

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.
