As soon as I saw Esther, she made me feel like home. Diego helped to carry my suitcase upstairs. The room and bathroom were SPOTLESS. The floor was squeaky clean and crispy!...nice tile as well. She was very thorough explaining to me which keys for which doors. Only 3 keys. You can have lots of natural light and air from a big window and 2 glass doors. Also dark enough to give you a restful or nap in the afternoon. One new split AC and a nice working fan which was enough for me. One door connects to the terrace where I have my breakfast every morning on a nice table. Esther made breakfast every morning with so much love and she put everything on a nice potteries. Simple but so healthy, like different kind of tropical fruits, toasted bread, butter and coffee with milk. There were 2 days she made like cold, refreshing fruit salad in lemon and guava juice. I could swim in it! One thing I just wished that I spoke Spanish that I would have more conversations with her. However, we communicate very well and threw some humor here and there. One day if I’m ready to be back to Havana, I know that I would be staying again at her place. She called a taxi for me for the airport, and I was so thankful that she got me a taxi that was one of the antique American car which was made in 1954. Also, she is responsive and communicative when I need to ask questions.
We stayed 3 nights with Esther in the centre of Havana Vieja and had a great stay! She is a very sweet woman who made us feel right at home.
The breakfast was great and included in the price.
She also helped us arrange a taxi collectivo.
I would recommand this casa to anyone!
Thank you Esther!
Kiss from Belgica!
Esther was very kind and helped us understand our first steps after arriving in Cuba. The apartment is located centrally in Havana Vieja and the room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. We also had a very nice breakfast on the balcony.
Hola Esther, tuvimos alguna complicación y no pudimos asistir, te pedimos disculpas. Valoramos positivamente tu atención.
Esther‘s Casa was the best one I had during my stay in Cuba. The casa is nice and clean. Esther is friendly and always ready to help you. Her breakfasts on the terrace are amazing! Feel like home with a nice cuban family atmosphere.
Ich war ab dem 30. November 2018 für drei Nächte als Gast bei Esther. Esther ist eine sehr nette, freundliche und hilfsbereite Person. Das Zimmer und das Bad sind sehr sauber. Esther ist auch eine gute Köchin und hat mich mit einem sehr feinen Nachtessen verwöhnt. Ich würde jederzeit gerne wieder bei ihr wohnen.
Me alojé en Esther por tres noches a partir del 30 de noviembre de 2018. Esther es una persona muy agradable, amable y servicial. La habitación y el baño están muy limpios. Esther también es buena cocinera y me mimó con una cena muy buena. Me gustaría volver a vivir con ella en cualquier momento.
Hemos pasado unos días estupendos en la Habana. Esther ha sido encantadora con nosotros y nos ha ayudado en todo. Recomendamos esta casa al 100%
Increíble recibimiento y muy cómoda estancia con una familia muy atenta que en todo momento te hacen sentir como uno más de la familia. Yo lo tengo claro, mi hogar en La Habana se encuentra en casa de Esther. Recomiendo ampliamente si el viajero decide visitar La Habana hospedarse allí, el trato es inmejorable y aseguro que la experiencia va a ser muy grata. Seguramente volveremos a La Habana y, de ser así, con total seguridad volveremos a elegir hospedarnos en casa de Esther. Saludos.
Loved every minute of our stay! Thank you for being so welcoming and kind and being fantastic hosts! Would recommend to anyone wanting the perfect base to explore Havana. 5*
Soggiorno breve ma perfetto. La posizione è ottima, havana vieja, nel cuore della città e allo stesso tempo la tranquillità della camera col terrazzino . Esther e la sua famiglia sono veramente ospitali e persone squisite...non ti sentirai sicuramente solo
