I was recommended to stay with this family by a friend, and I would totally recommend other friends of mine to do the same! It's the only casa particulare in Cuba where I felt like being at home. Abel and Jolanda where very warm and nice with us, not to forget the useful information they provided, the city tour and taking care of all our casa particulares in Cuba. To our next meeting... I hope I will get the opportunity to visit Havana and Abel's family again in the future
Wir wurden von Yolanda, Abel und Abel junior sehr herzlich aufgenommen und ausgesprochen nett umsorgt. Es waren zwei richtig schöne Tage mitten im Herzen von Havanna. Fast alle Sehenswürdigkeiten lassen sich gut zu Fuß erreichen und mit den Tipps von Abel und seiner Familie auch gut finden. Wir können die Casa Guillama uneingeschränkt empfehlen
I recommend this casa. Breakfast was includes and it was very delicious! We received a gifts and a tour around old Havana. Family was very nice and friendly. It is also very close to old Havana and Capitol. I regret we couldn't be longer there. Best regards :)

the room is nice with external door and private. the breakfast very good. and the location is very good too between old and new havana
i advise this family and the casa to everybody
Pasamos 4 noches en casa de Abel, Yolanda y Abelito. Llegamos a su casa justo el día después del paso del huracán Irma por la zona, y evidentemente las consecuencias se dejaban ver en la ciudad. Aunque las circunstancias no eran ideales (no hubo electricidad en la ciudad durante 2 días), Abel y su familia nos acogieron con una sonrisa y pusieron mucho esfuerzo en que nuestra estancia fuera agradable.
Son una familia encantadora, con muchas cosas que contar y lo más importante es que no te sientes un extraño en su casa. Los desayunos son geniales (gracias Yolanda!) y nos aconsejaron cosas que podríamos hacer para disfrutar un poco la ciudad pese a las condiciones.
Les estaremos siempre agradecidos de abrirnos las puertas de su casa en tal situación, y de hacernos sentir parte de la familia.
En cuanto al alojamiento, se trata de una habitación con baño individual, televisión y climatización. Está situado en centro Habana, a unos 15-20 minutos andando de la Habana Vieja y muy cerca del vedado. Está muy cerquita del malecón que desgraciadamente no pudimos disfrutar por las circunstancias...
Sin duda les visitaremos de nuevo si algún día volvemos a la isla!!
Gracias por todo :-)

Abel and his wife are very friendly.
I had a good time that talked about Cube and Japan.
Breakfast is great because it's free and included omelets with sausage, fresh juice, fruits.
I strongly recommend this casa.
Abel, Yolanda and Junior are really kind and friendly. They treated me like as a member of their family. Abel took me to "Castillo de San Carlos de la Cabana". Thanks to him, I enjoyed going there very much!
The room is clean and comfortable, and the shower is also good. I think the breakfast (It is included) is the best in Havana, Yolanda is so good at cooking!
I greatly appreciate their kindness. Thank you so much again.
Abel & Yoli were the best hosts ever!! They took really good care of me, way above and beyond what they need to do and I was supremely touched by their kindness and help. They were attentive to my needs and were my friends when I stayed with them. I highly recommend them! Son mis Cubanos favoritos! Son muy amables y atentos. Un grand abrazo!
Estuvimos en casa de Abel, Yoli y Abelito durante 3 noches y la verdad que fue una experiencia maravillosa. Nos alojamos allí recién llegados a Cuba y fue la mejor forma de conocer la cultura local. La casa se encuentra muy bien situada, en Habana centro y por tanto nos movíamos a pie a todos lados. Nos trataron fenomenal, los desayunos eran muy completos y siempre teníamos fruta y zumos riquísimos cuando llegábamos a casa. Incluso el día que nos fuimos, nos prepararon una bolsa llena de fruta para que la disfrutáramos durante nuestro viaje hacia Viñales. Nos encantó la experiencia, y os recomendamos que vayáis a su casa si os quedáis en La Habana, sin duda!
Abel Snr and Junior and Mrs G are great hosts! between them they have a good command of English which does help. Room is comfortable, well appointed. Snr showed me around, gave me information, shared his thoughts about his country. very honest and upfront. Stay with them!
