Una estadía muy placentera, Jorge y su esposa muy acogedores y amables al igual que Lizbeth, presto a darnos las indicaciones y recomendaciones básicas , a responder y ayudar con todas nuestras dudas e interrogantes respecto a nuestros itinerarios y lugares a conocer ; la casa queda muy central , cerca a la universidad y a la plaza de la revolución, la habitación agradable y permanentemente limpia , con una cama muy cómoda (considero que es lo principal) , el baño esta bien y con una ducha de agua con excelente presión y agua caliente. recomiendo tomar el desayuno completo es super. indudablemente cuando regrese a Cuba con mi familia(espero muy pronto) , me gustaría volver a quedarme en la casa azul de Jorge.
Jorge's Casa Azul is always worth a visit. The appartments are very central. University and the best wifi-spot in the area are just around the corner, 5 minutes walk to the centre of Vedado and 5 minutes bus/taxi ride to the Capitol/Parque Central. The rooms are meticulously clean, they change towels and drapes every day. Jorge and his family are very helpful, can give you practical advice on everything necessary (e.g. Internet Access, security, museum/restaurant/nightlife recommendations) and are generally very open-minded to accomodate to their visitors' needs. If you're looking for a good particular, choose this one!
We had a great time a Jorges place. They are very friendly and helpful! It's a real communicative place, where we not only get in touch with Cuba, but also meet people from other countries. Thanks a lot! It was soooo lovely!
Super Gastgeber, sehr hilfreich, intelligent und unterhaltsam.
Zimmer sehr sauber, Wäschewechsel alle 2 Tage, schönes individuell zugeschnittenes Frühstück.
Die Lage hat mir sehr gut gefallen, genügend Restaurants um die Ecke. Zugang zum öffentlichen w-lan (Prepaid-Karte, 1 Stunde 1 CUC, würde Jorge auf Wunsch besorgen, empfehlenswert!) ein paar Minuten entfernt.
Sono stata ospite di Jorge e la sua famiglia per 3 notti. (le prime 3 notti a Cuba). Ci siamo trovati davvero bene, loro sono molto cordiali e la casa è pulitissima e ben tenuta (puliscono le stanze ogni giorno e cambiano le lenzuola ogni 2 giorni). La colazione preparata da sua moglie è buonissima!
Consiglio questa casa particular a tutti!
Our stay with Jorge was perfect. If we needed help or advice he or the family were there for us. He has 3 rooms and because we were there for 12 nights we met his other homestay guests from different countries which was interesting. The accomodation is perfectly situated for a lovely walk into Havana centre as we did every day-interesting! Breakfast was delightful with fresh fruit and local cheeses. We hired a car for a few days and traveled and what was waiting for us in our fridge when we got back -a bottle of sparkling wine (we mentioned to one of the other guests about our wedding anniversary). Thanks Jorge and family. We will be back!!!
Very fine and clean rooms with god beds and very friendly.
Good location and incredibly helpful hosts. The room was exceptionally clean and the breakfasts (particularly the coffee!) were excellent. Would definitely recommend.
This was a great place to end our trip in Cuba. Jorge was very helpful and his family are really friendly (his daughter speaks very good english!) The location is in a great part of Havana, and within walking distance to popular sights, restaurants, bars and clubs. Would definitely recommend.
My family and I stayed at Jorge's, Nardy's and Carla's house for about a week and they became our second family. Our Cuban experience wouldn't be the same without them! They are very nice, fun, enjoy having people from different places and countries. Every morning they would greet us with a big smile and an amazing cup of coffee... or two-three:) The rooms are cleaned everyday, they are simple and comfortable. We were not afraid to leave all our valuables in the room and also there was someone from the hostess family to stay in the house overnight.
Cuba is an amazing country and Havana is an intriguing and vibrant city with very friendly people. Thanks to our "cuban family" we had the best time ever!!!
Я с родителями жили в доме у Хорхе, Нарди и Карлы около недели, и они быстро стали нашей второй семьей. Наш кубинский опыт не был бы таким же без них! Они очень приятные, веселые, любят людей из разных стран и разных национальностей. Каждое утро они приветствовали нас с большой улыбкой и удивительной чашкой кофе ... или двумя-тремя:) Комнаты убираются каждый день, они просты и удобны. Мы не боялись оставлять все наши ценности в комнате, а также кто-то из семьи хозяев оставался в доме на ночь.
Куба - удивительная страна, а Гавана - интригующий и яркий город с очень дружелюбными людьми и классными машинами!! Благодаря нашей «кубинской семье» мы провели незабываемое время на Кубе!
