    Wir waren 10 Nächte bei Yuleidi. Wir sind nach einer abenteuerlichen Taxifahrt sehr herzlich von Ihr und Ihrem Mann Octavio begrüßt worden, und im Zimmer haben wir sofort alles erklärt bekommen. Das Zimmer und Bad war immer Sauber, und in den 10 Tagen sogar 3 mal frische Bettwäsche bekommen. Wasser, auch warm, war immer vorhanden. Das Frühstück war mit täglich frischem Saft, Obst, Salat, Brot, Käse, Wurst, Ei und Kaffee immer sehr lecker und reichlich. Yuleidi hat uns mit ihrem fröhlichen Wesen den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm gemacht, und war bei Fragen sehr hilfsbereit. Sie kümmert sich sehr um Ihre Gäste. Wir waren sehr glücklich bei Yuleidi und Octavio. Wenn wir wieder nach Hanna fliegen, werden wir unseren Urlaub in jedem Fall wieder bei Yuli verbringen. Wir wünschen Ihr alles liebe und gute.

    We had a great stay. We had a bedroom and bathroom which was clean and comfortable and we had our own entrance and keys. Our room was cleaned regularly and towels, sheets and bathroom mats changed,approximately every 3-4 days . Our host made breakfast for us everyday including fresh fruit, cheese and cold meats and eggs which was a lovely start for the day. We had dinner a number of evenings during our stay (Yuleidi you're a great cook) with traditional Cuban cooking which we really enjoyed . The food was good value for money.
    The family were friendly and welcoming to us and I want to thank you for helping to make our trip so enjoyable.

    We've enjoyed our stay at Yuleidi's house. They (her husband as well) were very friendly.
    There was sometimes music that was too loud for us. Most of the time the music came from from the neighbours. Breakfast was fine.
    The room and the bathroom were clean.
    A tip: maybe some water in the fridge for the guests.

    Thank you for your comment, we just want to say that you were in a Caribbean country for the end of the year parties, everyone knows that in our countries these days is a lot of music and parties everywhere, we regret that the music of others would have influenced In his comment for us, about water almost all tourists drink tap water and in our house it is filtered and we are always willing for our guests to save money and if we like we offer filtered water at no cost, for us it was a pleasure to receive you, receive a great greeting from Cuba.

    The place is in a very central location and it's clean and quiet, no traffic near by, so no pollution either. The family is very sweet and friendly, would definitely stay there again!

    Fue la familia cubana más amable que hemos conocido en Cuba. Nos pasamos muy bien con Yuli y Octavio! Sin pensar recomendamos esa familia para las vacaciones en La Habana. Te ayudan mucho y te dan buen consejos. Encima la casa está muy bien situada. Puedes conocer La Habana completamente. El mejor sitio para comer en la ciudad es en la cocina de Yuli!! Lo hace con mucho amor y está muy rico. Gracias por recibirnos, Yuli y Octavio.
    Mit dieser Familie haben wir die netteste und herzlichste kubanische Familie in ganz Havanna kennengelernt. Plant ihr einen Aufenthalt in Kuba, so empfehle ich euch unbedingt diese Familie. Deren Herzlichkeit ist, wie wir dann erfahren mussten, nicht Normalität in Kuba. Außerdem bietet Yuli eine super Alternative zum kubanischen (eher mäßigem bis schlechtem) Essen, da sie wirklich eine tolle Köchin ist und man schmeckt, dass sie es wirklich gerne tut. Die Lage ist super und alles ist fußläufig erreichbar. Von ganzem Herzen möchte ich diese Familie empfehlen. Danke für die tolle Zeit!

    Yuleidi had a lovely home and was very welcoming and accommodating. The room is air conditioned and has everything you need. It is secure and you can keep it locked when away from the home. The breakfast was really delicious! Highly recommended. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.
