Typical Cuban family and flavour. I loved staying at Lily's casa with all the family. She gave me some guidance and tips where to move and how to manage things arround Havana and other places in Cuba! Cheers and hugs from Poland!
séjour génial, l'appartement est bien situé, la chambre est grande, la pièce de vie agréable.
Lilu est adorable et toute sa famille aussi, le petit déjeuner est copieux et les diners délicieux.
on t'embrasse Lilu !!
This family is awesome! They are so sweet. Best breakfast we had in Cuba. Nice room!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We highly recommend this casa.
We stayed here 4 nights in july 2018.
Lilu and her family are the sweetest and nicest persons you can imagine. Lilu is 100% like a caring and lovely grandmother. You will feel as a part of the family right away upon arriving to the casa. If we could we would have rated it 6 hearts and not just 5.
Location is perfect in the heart of Old Havana just 5 minutes of walking from Obispo and with a nice view to the Capitolio building from the balcony.
Lilu and her son who runs the casa daily does not speak a word english, but her daughter does and she is there everyday except when she is away for work. So you can talk to her when you need advice or information. But even when her daugther was out, we somehow managed to understand each other by signs and gestures even though we did not understand each others languages.
The room you get is spacious and very clean. It has a well working aircondition and a refrigerator. The private bathroom is also large and clean.
The included light breakfast is nice. You get bread, butter, coffee, milk and a daily suprise which could be fried banana slices, fried sweet potatoes or others.
When eating you sit in the middle of their living room which is really nice. If you want to experience the real Havana life this is the right place to be.
We lost our luggage from UK to Cuba. Lilu helped is calling the airport every day and she even gave the airport guy and earful on our behalf:-) Due to this only had limited clothes to wear so she offered us to wash and dry our clothes as a gesture (free of charge) But we did not want to bother her, so we handwashed it in the bathroom zink. But she insisted on helping us, so she dried it on a clothesline for us, folded it and placed it on our beds so it was ready for next day excursions. Lilu is so sweet and caring :-)
You should really try to stay here. This is real Cuba.
Just be aware of one thing. The apartment is located on 2nd. floor and only a small steep staircase leads up to the apartment. So if you have difficulty walking up stairs then you should not chose this place.
