Esther was so lovely - very sweet casa and excellent value for Havana - 100% recommend!
Tu as été notre premier contact avec Cuba et La Havanne et j'engage tous ceux qui veulent découvrir ce pays si singulier à faire comme nous et te choisir pour première hôtesse .
Ta maison si bien située au coeur du quartier historique , ton accueil si simple et si aimable , tes bons conseils et surtout ta belle personnalité nous ont conquis .
Seul le regret de n'avoir pas pû communiquer davantage avec toi ( nous ne parlons pas l'Espagnol ) fait que tout n'a pas été parfait ! Alors merci pour tout et à une prochaine fois , plus longtemps ? Nous t'embrassons .

Excellent accueil, très bien situé, on y reviendrait volontiers, sans oublier la gentilleße d'Esther.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Titica was amazing. She is very very kind and always there to help you.
During my stay, I got a little sick in the end. She helped me to feel better, and with her help I was able to leave feeling much better on the day planned.
Thank you so much, Titica! <3
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.
