La estancia en la casa de Jorge y su familia fue en realidad muy agradable .
Ellos son muy amables y buena gente. la casa es buena y esta bien ubicada dentro de la habana.
Hemos charlado mucho con Jorge que es una persona que le gusta hablar de todos los temas.
Por cierto seguramente fue una bonita estancia!
Le recomiendo a quedarse ahí,van disfrutar de la ciudad a tener una buenísima experiencia.
Nice room and great hospitality!
Nous avons passé 4 jours chez Jorge et sa femme , un couple très sympathique et chaleureux ils ont étés très serviable ils nous ont commandé un taxi pour venir nous chercher à l'aéroport celui-ci avait une pancarte avec notre nom . Ils étaient toujours avec le sourire nous nous sommes sentis très à lèse chez eux comme si nous étions chez nous ,le contact a été rapide ,nous avons souvent dialogué ensemble .Les 3 jeunes qui gardaient la maison étaient également très gentil à notre égard le premier qui nous a accueilli à notre arrivé nous a donné de bon conseil pour visiter la capitale . Le petit déjeuné de chaque matin très copieux ,les chambres propres tous les jours . Jorge nous a indiqué un très bon restaurant .
Nous espérons garder le contact avec eux . Nous vous conseillons de faire un séjour chez ce couple charmant et surtout chaleureux vous ne serez pas du tout déçu .
Nous n’hésitons pas à les remercier pour leurs chaleureux accueils et nous les embrassons très fort
Nuestra experiencia con Jorge y su familia fue mas que perfecta. Nos trataron como a sus propias hijas, compartimos opiniones, sonrisas, horas y horas de charlas y muy buenos momentos. Y los desayunos estaban RIQUISIMOS. Fue tan perfecto que hasta decidimos volver la última noche antes de regresar a nuestro pais. Es la mejor familia que podriamos haber elegido, nos llevamos un recuerdo para toda la vida!!!!
We just stayed 1 night at Jorge's house, but it was awesomwe, he and his wife are sooo kind and friendly! The house is very clean and cozy, with comfortable beds and great shower, we really enjoyed and recommend! :)
We only had a short stay here and only briefly met Jorge, but he and his family made us feel extremely welcome – and treated us to rum and cigars :) The house is in a good location in Vedado, from where it's easy to get around by taxi. Definitely recommend!
Although my time at Jorge' s was short, I could have easily stayed longer. The room was large, very comfortable and clean - I couldn't have asked for anything better. The location of the Casa is ideal for those who enjoy the buzz of the City, but wish to retire to somewhere more peaceful to sleep. The Casa is approximately 25 minute walk to 'Parque Central', just before Habana Vieja.
More importantly, Jorge and his family are delightful. They're friendly, full of life and plenty of knowledge about Havana and Cuba. I throughly recommend 'La Casa Azul' to any travellers who want an authentic Cuban experience in Habana.
Gracias Jorge y Familia!
Wir können uns den vielen positiven Bewertungen der anderen Reisenden nur anschließen:
Jorges Casa liegt zentral in Vedado, sodass zB die Avenida 23 mit dem Eiscafé am Park Coppelia oder auch das Hotel Nacional bequem per Fuß zu erreichen sind.
Eine Fahrt zur kubanischen Altstadt dauert mit Taxis ca. 10 Minuten, zu Fuß gute 30-40 Minuten.
Das Zimmer selbst ist sehr sauber und wird täglich geputzt.
Am meisten hervorheben möchten wir aber die Empfehlungen, die Jorge einem mit auf den Weg gibt:
Bei Ankunft haben wir einen Plan der Umgebung mit Empfehlungen für bestimmte Orte (Restaurants, Sehenswürdigkeiten) erhalten. Gerade in Kuba, wo unserem Eindruck nach viel davon abhängt, jemanden zu kennen, der die richtigen Orte kennt, waren diese Empfehlungen Gold wert!
Vielen Dank für die tolle Unterkunft - wenn wir nochmal nach Havanna kommen, würden wir jederzeit wieder bei Jorge übernachten!
We can only agree with the many positive reviews of other travelers:
Jorges Casa is centrally located in Vedado, so for example the Avenida 23 with the ice cream parlor at the Park Coppelia or the Hotel Nacional are within easy walking distance.
A drive to the Cuban Old Town takes about 10 minutes by taxi, a good 30-40 minutes on foot.
The room itself is very clean and cleaned daily.
Most of all we would like to highlight the recommendations that Jorge gives you:
On arrival we received a map of the area with recommendations for specific places (restaurants, attractions). Especially in Cuba, where we feel it depends a lot on knowing someone who knows the right places, these recommendations were worth gold!
Many thanks for the great accommodation - if we come back to Havana, we would stay at Jorge again anytime!
We had a nice stay at Jorge. Jorge and his wife are very welcoming and friendly and their daughter speek English and is also very friendly (and very pretty : comment of our boy !) The location of the casa is good and quiet, close to the busy streets of Vedado. The room was clean , the bathroom was very small but with a big shower .The breakfast was perfect and different every day . We certainly recommend Jorge and his family to stay in Habanna . Thanks a lot
