    I had a very pleasant stay in Jorge‘s place during my visit to La Habana. Jorge and his wife are very nice hosts.

    I spent many days in their place. It is located in the famous part of Vedado in La Habana (near to hotel Habana Libre and the University). The room is very clean and the place is very safe.

    I highly recommend to stay at Jorge‘s place if you happen to visit La Habana. Thank you Jorge and family for your hospitality and kindness. See you soon when I come back to Havana the next time. :-)

    Jorge und seine Frau waren sehr nett und zuvorkommend, die Zimmer wurden jeden Tag gereinig und waren sehr sauber. Der einzigste Nachteil war, dass die Zimmer sehr klein und etwas dunkel waren.

    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

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
