We stayed just one night at Alejandro's house, it's very close to Viazul bus Terminal, so it was a great choice! The house is clean and beautiful. Alejandro and his wife are very kind and helpful, they did a great breakfast to us and we had the best black coffee in Cuba at their house!
Alejandro a été très sympathique et accueillant, un vrai plaisir de faire sa connaissance même si nous ne sommes restés qu'une nuit. La maison est vraiment superbe, dans un quartier au calme et à proximité de la station Viazul. Pour rejoindre le centre, vous trouverez facilement des taxis pour 5 CUC environ. Nous recommandons sans hésitation !
We had a very pleasant stay. Next time in Havana I would like to book this accomadation again.
I have just spent a night at Alejandro’s but it was great . Excellent bed and shower!!
