Couple agréable accueillant disponible
La seule chose à améliorer=> vider la poubelle des toilettes
Merci à ce beau couple très joyeux
Bedroom was great! Comfortable beds and a big private bathroom with a great warm shower. Mini fridge in room with water you can purchase . Breakfast for an extra 5 cuc was delicious ( best eggs we ever had). Caridad and Waldo are the best hosts you could want- kind, funny and caring. Language barrier was not a problem!! Stay here to feel comfortable and to be in the best location- right in the heart of old town and just around the corner from the famous el Floridita ( best daiquiris) .
Caridad et Waldo sont des personnes adorables qui nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement. A notre arrivée, pourtant tardive, vers 21h30, nous avions notre repas qui nous attendait. Ce sont des hôtes charmants prêts à rendre service ou donner de bons conseils. Leur logement est idéalement placé en plein centre ville à deux pas du bar El Floridita et du Capitolio. Le confort de la chambre est rudimentaire mais l'essentiel y est et c'est très propre. Toutefois les matelas seraient à changer surtout l'un des deux et l'eau de la douche a été froide les 3 jours que nous y sommes restés... cela rafraîchit et met dans l'ambiance de Cuba dès les premiers jours!!! (Restrictions de gaz nous a-t-on annoncé). Nous recommandons pour la situation mais surtout pour la gentillesse de ces hôtes. Merci Caridad et Waldo!
caridad y su esposo son personas muy agradables y atentos con sus huespedes la direccion ideal cerca del floridita sin falta regresare se los recomiendo
We stayed for four nights at caridads and waldos casa. From the first moment on we were warmly welcomed. Clean rooms, good food, tips for activities, perfect location for exploring habana vieja. Caridad and waldo are very friendly and communicative if you want to improve your spanish. They took very good care of us and after short it felt like having a second family in cuba :) Moreover Caridad helped us organize our round trip in cuba. Caridad y waldo conocen casas particulares bonitas in todos los kuba! l Without their help this would have been really difficult considering our poor spanish. Thank you very much! Tus babies benni y philipp
Nunca he conocido a una pareja tan agradable en mi vida.
Cuidaron mis deseos muy bien.
Siempre me sirvieron otro desayuno y almuerzo que podría haber deseado.
Si me faltaba algo, siempre me daban la información adecuada donde puedo obtener todo.
cálido, respetuoso, ordenado, limpio y divertido, ambos mejoraron mucho mis vacaciones.
Estoy planeando mis próximas vacaciones con ellos inmediatamente.
PD y lo mejor para un alemán ... siempre había una cerveza fría lista :)
Los 4 días en Caridad y Valdo fueron fantásticos. Aunque llegamos temprano sin ningún contacto previo (lo siento de nuevo) la recepción fue como estar con amigos. La habitación con baño era muy bonita y absolutamente limpia. La ubicación no puede ser mejor. Desayunamos y cenamos. Todo se hizo con gran amor y estaba buenísimo. Recibimos consejos fantásticos para La Habana, que no se encontraron en ninguna guía de viaje. Gracias de nuevo por eso.
Después de 4 días nos despedimos como una familia. Si volvemos a La Habana, solo nos quedaríamos con Caridad y Valdo. Saludos desde Munich y feliz navidad
The room was very clean and with all the comforts. The position is very central, you can reach every part of LA Habana Vieja just by feet. The breakfast is great. Caridad and her husband are incredibly kind and they really helped me for everything. For example, they helped me with the collective taxis and to find Casa particular in other cities of Cuba. If you want to meet a real, safe and professional couple of Cubans, I definitely recommend this Casa! If I'll come back, I'll stay for sure here.
We are a couple from the UK and India, and have basic level of Spanish. From the moment we entered into Caridad and Waldo's home, it felt like we were at home too. My spanish is at a basic conversational level. They were both patiebt and enthusiastic to speak with us and we were able to speak for hours about our lives and interests. Our Spanish improved greatly over the few days we spent with them both. The love, patience, conscientiousness and care we received from this family is unforgettable and we feel like we will forever keep them in our hearts despite the short time we spent together. They are good and kind people.
The room was very clean and comfortable, with good AC and internet is available if required. An amazing breakfast is offered every morning with wonderful fresh fruits and juices, eggs, and hams. On request, dinner is available also giving a great experience of local Cuban cuisine. In our opinion Caridad's cooking was better than anything we tried in restaurants in the city. The time we spent with Caridad and Waldo had a deep impact on us and we will never forget them.........
Location excellent. It is right next to the Ernest Hemingway restaurant and bar in the middle of all the action.
Use earplugs, or if an early riser, no alarm needed, as you will be woken up early by the traffic going by.
It's a great place for short stay, to get to know the family way of life if you speak Spanish even better!
