What a wonderful family. The best decision we made for our (sadly short) trip to Cuba was staying with Jorge and his amazing family. Everything was perfect. Our room had everything we needed (especially air conditioning!) and it was very clean. Our favorite thing to do was to have breakfast with Jorge and Nardi and listen to their stories about life in Cuba. Thank you so much! New York is waiting for you! You'll always have a home here. -- Marianna & Svetlana / Que familia mas amable. La mejor decision que hicimos para nuestro (desafortunadamente cortito) viaje a Cuba fue quedarnos con Jorge y su familia genial. Todo era perfecto. Nuestra habitacion tenia todo lo que necesitabamos (sobre todo el aire condicionado!) y era muy limpio. Nuestra cosa favorita era desayunar con Jorge y Nardi y escuchar sus historias sobre la vida en Cuba. Muchisimas gracias! Nueva York los espera! Siempre tendran casa aqui. -- Marianna & Svetlana
We received a very warm welcome from the family and had a really nice room. The family was really warm and helpful in giving us tips about what to do and where to go. We managed to practice our Spanish as well which was enjoyable! We will certainly go back!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Jorge and his family made our time in Havana wonderful and easy. They are warm and welcoming and offer an incredibly clean and comfortable home for their travelers. Their location was perfect for all of the running about we did and we always had a tidy bedroom (AC and fan!) to come home to in the evenings. Breakfast was a treat every morning thanks to his wonderful wife, and chatting with their daughter who is in university there was a great way to learn about the country and its culture. They are a wealth of information and I will definitely stay with them next time I'm in Cuba. Thank you Jorge! Besos!
We loved to stay with Jorge and his family! The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was really good, and the atmosphere was great! We did also get some really good advices on where to go and what to see. Jorge doesn't talk much english, but he's willing to try, and the doughter seemed to be avalible for translating at all times! Thank you for some wonderful days in Havanna!
I'm definitely going back! :)
Thank you to Jorge and his incredibly welcoming family for a great stay! They helped us plan the rest of our trip in Cuba and made us feel at home. Their house is beautiful and I would recommend it to everyone! Muchas gracias a ustedes por todo !
Fue grandioso Hospedarnos en la casa de Jorge. Excelente familia. Nos ayudo y aconsejo en todo momento todo lo que podíamos hacer y visitar. Personas muy cálidas El y su esposa Nardi. Lo recomendamos 100%.
Sehr herzlich hat uns Jorge mit seiner Familie empfangen! Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber und das Frühstück hat keine Wünsche offen gelassen. 24/7 war eine Person der Famiele anwesend und man war nie allein. Die Organisation das wir vom Flugahafen abgeholt werden war uns sehr wichtig und auch auch Prima geklappt! Sofort wurden wir hier ohne Bedenken gerne wieder unterkommen. Vielen Dank und weiter so M+M
We only stayed in this room one night but from what we saw would recommend it. Had a nice introduction and reception with overview of the area. Comfortable room and nice hot water in the shower. Had to leave too early for breakfast but did have a fabulous cuban coffee and got to chat briefly with Jose and his family and the seem like lovely people.
What can I say? If there were 10 hearts here, I would mark them all. The time at Jorge's house was really fantastic.
First of all, the house is an old, beautiful building with the charm of the past and a very welcoming inside. The room was also perfect, having a very comfy bed, fresh linen every 2 days and being very, very clean, which is the most important thing in my opinion.
To continue, the tasty breakfast was really very healthy and was given to us every day either by Jorge or his wife, Nardy. We loved the fruit and bread! And the coffee! There is nothing like Cuban coffee t wait to be back!
