We had a really nice stay. It's a very spacious and clean appartment just a short walk from Plaza Vieja. They serve a nice and big breakfast. Irlenis is very helpfull, friendly and speaks English.
Great place with lovely family! Very helpful with organising our next step of our trip.
We planned to stay at Ana y Nelsons place for 2 nights, which eventually became 3 nights due to problems with our rental car (welcome to Latin America...). The place is very nice, everything is clean and there is enough room to store your luggage. Nice private bathroom and we made use of the breakfast as well, which is good. They even changed it the second day because we didn’t like the juice we got. The bed could be better, but this didn’t bother us so much. They helped us with all of our luggage to the fourth floor, they were very helpfull and so nice. Irlenis and her husband helped us so well. Would recommend this place to anyone!
Muchas gracias Irlenis, husband, Ana y Nelson!
Nice room on a good location. The hostess is very friendly and her english is good. She also has a lot of good information to help you on your travels, and she knows a lot of good casas elsewhere in Cuba.
This casa was simply fantastic! We booked this casa back at home because we wanted to make sure we would have a place to stay when arriving in Havana. Irlenis contacted us way before our arrival and arranged a taxi for us. When arrived, we were welcomed with a fresh ‘jugo’ while Irlenis explained everything about the city, the dos and don’ts and anything else you need to know. Although we spoke Spanish, I believe she speaks English as well.
Anyways, Irlenis kind of decided our entire Cuba journey, as she provided us with tickets of other casas around the island. She has created a huge network with friends all over the island. Not one single casa has disappointed us. The last night we came back in Havana, Irlenis fixed everything for us again. Unfortunately, the room wasn’t available, but that didn’t keep her from showing up at the other casa and checking in on us. Irlenis is just an amazing, wonderful, kind person.
Then back to the casa itself: perfect location!! Even though it’s on the fourth floor, it’s a pretty nice apartment. You share the main entrance with the family (where you will probably meet Irlenis’ mother Ana as well, who is just as loveable as Irlenis), but you will have a lot of privacy. The room is clean, as well as the bathroom, big enough for 3 people although we were with 2. Fridge with fresh water, and most important of all: well-working airco!! The breakfast for an additional 5cuc per person is a good and delicious start of the day (fruit, juice, tea, coffee, milk, bread, marmalade, eggs, sweets, cheese, ham).
All in all: this stay was pretty decisive for the rest of our journey and I wouldn’t have done it differently. This casa is a must-visit! Irlenis, muchas gracias!!
Una familia encantadora, pasamos unos días fabulosos en la Habana. La familia nos dio varios consejos al llevar a Cuba y nos ayudaron en todo. El desayuno fabuloso.

Tutto perfetto !!! Splendido soggiorno !!

If I could rate them over 5 stars, I WOULD! They were incredibly helpful. Ana and her daughter reached out to me prior to my arrival and set up a taxi pick up for me for just 30 CUCs. Then when we arrived, they helped us bring up all of our luggage’s. Ana’s daughter gave us a map and pointed out some things we could do in La Habana Vieja. She also explained how to find WiFi. Extremely helpful. She also knew we were going to Varadero and Viñales and did all the taxi set ups for us. Also, they serve an amazingly delicious breakfast for just 5 CUCs each morning. You can opt out of it but we never did because it was delicious. The room has air condition and it is almost like you have your own place. Please if you’re looking for an amazing experience, this is the casa to stay at. I was so sad to leave them, but I’ll be back!

We only stayed here 1 night but it was very comfortable and very clean! The location is excellent and Ana is a brilliant host. She arranged our taxi for us and waited for it to arrive. Would definitely stay here again!
Ana et son mari sont des personnes gentilles, accueillantes, disponibles, souriantes qui ont tout fait pour rendre notre séjour parfait.
L'appartement est super, d'une propreté irréprochable !
Le petit déjeuner est gargantuesque et le café est le meilleur que l'on ait bu à Cuba.
Bonne situation par rapport au centre ville, la vieille Havane est vraiment le quartier ou il faut résider !
Je recommande mille fois
