This fourth-floor apartment was centrally located in the historic district on La Muralla, which is one of the four main streets leading to Plaza Vieja where there are restaurants and other tourist attractions. In short, her apartment is walking distance from anywhere you wish to go in downtown Havana. I stayed in a lovely, clean, and spacious room with a lot of natural light and a small balcony where I can watch what is going on in the neighborhood down below. Each room is equipped with a small fridge that contains bottles of water, soda, and beer. All prices are listed on the refrigerator. Yailen prepared a full Cuban breakfast consisting of a fresh fruit platter (banana, guava, pineapple), fresh bread with butter, jam, ham, and cheese with coffee (milk and sugar, of course!) for $5 CUC, which is the equivalent of $5 USD. She even provided internet cards at $1 CUC ($1 USD) each to make it more accessible to tourists (once you get to Cuba, you will understand how important this is!). The bathroom was shared and kept very clean by herself and the housekeeper. But most importantly, Yailen and her family were warm, welcoming, accommodating, and so helpful! When I canceled my lodgings in Centro Habana and needed to find a new place to stay, Yailen contacted her friends asking for availability. When I needed transportation from Havana to Varadero, she coordinated it for me. When I ran out of money and needed a native Cuban to pick up the transfer at Western Union, she waited in line for hours with me and made sure that the issue was resolved. Yailen and her husband work tirelessly to make sure that their guests are happy and taken care of. When in Havana, I will always choose to stay with Yailen and you should to!
We loved staying with Yailen. The room was beautiful and the hosts were incredible. I highly highly recommend this space, and would love to go back. The host was so kind, gracious, and spoke perfect English (and was willing to answer many of our Cuba questions!). Thanks so much for the great visit, wishing you all the best Yailen!
Nous avons eu un très belle accueil de la petite famille, ils parlent tous les deux en anglais, ce qui facilite les échanges. Ils nous ont donné beaucoup d'informations pertinente, nous avons pris le petit déjeuner complet, elle prépare tout elle-même, de la variété à tous les matins. Malgré que l'appartement était au 3e étage, il ne fessait pas trop chaud pour dormir et en cas de besoin on a partis l'ai conditionner. La terrasse sur la toit était accessible en tout temps. Nos chambres étaient propre et bien tenu, il manque un peu de mobilier pour des visiteurs comme nous qui ont couché 10 nuits. Les prises de courant sont sur le 110v. Pour ce qui est de bruit, il était réduit vue qu'on était au 3e, mais la vieille Havane a plein d'animaux de basse cour. Nous vous recommandons cette casa sans hésiter!
We were there as a family with two children and had a great and pleasant stay.
Even the room was big enough. Everything was clean and the breakfast quite alot.
Our host family was very friendly and helpful in any cases. She also knows good accomodations for your further itinerary. Her husband showed me a digital map from Cuba. So you can find any other place (it works just like an analog map, no search function, no route function) but it shows you by GPS where you are. We would have been lost without it, because we were travelling by our own with a rental car. Thanks again for the brilliant idea!
The room is located close to Plaza Vieja and the Capitol, so you can walk. There are also bars and restaurants nearby.
Thanks for the nice stay and the experience
