About the Homestay
This is a private apartment near Capitolio. If you want to enjoy an authentic Cuban experience, not only a tourist illusion, then this is your choice. Located in a newly renovated house, in a safe neighborhood, a couple of minutes from Habana's busy shopping street - you can enjoy perfect privacy. The very well ventilated apartment has three separate rooms, two bathrooms with hot and cold shower, a kitchen, a balcony and access to a private roof with a panoramic view of La Habana. A very nice Cuban family is ready to host you and help you with all your travel needs. A vintage American car with a driver is available to rent to pick you up from the airport for 30 CUC or to take you on day trips to the beach, or to any other destination. We provide a Cuban breakfast for free and we have a laundry service free of charge.
Bedrooms available for booking

Minus: our two rooms turned out to be one, and quite more tired looking than the impression we got from pictures.
Nice home and nice people.
Thumbs down for lack of AirCo.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
You could not get a nicer host. And the roms were very cosy and clean. We all, including the family with the little child, really enjoyed staying at casa Harmonia. If I go back to Havanna I will return to Jorge Luis.
Our stay in havana was our first experience with Cuba. Our pick-up taxi from the airport was well arranged and she even arranged a Taxi to our Viazul busstation for our next stay. She was really sweet to welcome us and she makes the best breakfast!!! The only reason why we gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because she doesn't speak english, that made it a bit hard too communicate. But for us its also bad. We go to a Spanish speaking country without understanding Spanish.
Jorge Luis and his family have been the most wonderful hosts we've found in Cuba! Me and my sisters have been treated as family and given any kind of commodities. The house is clean and tidy; the spot is strategic, since very near to the city centre and the Vedado as well; and we could never forget to mention about the rich breakfasts on the terrace! We highly recommend Jorge Luis...believe me, you won't be disappointed!
Luis is the nicest person we have met during our trip in Cuba, he will do everything to help you spend a wonderful Time in Cuba. From day one, Luis had been an amazing host. Even tho our flight arrives at 4 in the morning, Luis waited for us to make sure we don't get lost with our cab. He really make you feel at home. It's hard to describe how wonderful, generous , caring Luis was during our entire trip. We couldn't find better place to start our trip in Cuba, we enjoyed his place so much that we decided to come back to Havana for our last day in Cuba.
His place is really close from the old Havana, easily accessible by foot in 10-15mn. Rooms are very spacious, clean and he'll serve you a delicious breakfast with real Cuban coffee in the morning . We will never forget our time with Luis. If you book some time in Havana make sure you stay at Luis place and you won't be disappointed.
Luis y su familia son encantadores, el trato ha sido maravilloso, los desayunos exquisitos y nos han ayudado en todo lo que nos hecho falta. Son muy hospitalarios. 100% recomendable a todo el que quiera conocer la verdadera Cuba. Muchas gracias por todo Luis! Ha sido una de nuestras mejores experiencias. Saludos de tus chicas vascas
where do i start with how AMAZING a time i had, mostly thanks to Jorge Luis and Yaerelis! i have been to over 90 countries & islands globally, and to ALL 7 continents(never Cuba until now). Yet i can safely say that i have never received as much love, care, attention, and kindness than when i stayed @ the Casa Harmonia! i was treated like a queen from the moment i arrived, and the treatment never stopped! i actually cried that i had to leave, lol. the room had a magnificent balcony view of the real Habana, the facilities were always kept clean(toilet paper provided which doesn't happen often in Cuba), the breakfasts were SO delicious and huge that i didn't have to eat again until dinner, and they were available 24/7 to help me with whatever i needed; INCREDIBLE! they treated me like family from the minute Jorge Luis met me @ the airport with a sign, and put me into that beautiful 50's bright green vehicle. they left me with such a beautiful feeling about Cuba and it's people, that i am now trying to figure out how i can return there sooner than later! one last thing: on my final day in Habana, Jorge came to help me pack up some of the treasures i had bought. i noticed he had on a shirt i thought my boyfriend would love. when i inquired where i could get one like it, he literally took it off and gave it to me to give to my boyfriend back home. WOW! WOW! WOW! so he literally gave me the shirt off his back, lol! these people and the place were authentic and inspiring to say the least!
Jorge was a perfect host. He is very friendly, has great knowledge and was extremely helpful. He really helped in providing me with some great memories of Havana. Breakfast was wonderful, you really don't need anything until dinner after this and the apartment is in a great location. The terrace and roof and great places to relax whilst watching everyday life of Havana. I really would recommend anyone to stay with Jorge and I would love to come back if I ever return to Havana.
