Jorge was very polite, while I came along to pay the bill. Didn't pass even a single night in his home due to another family inviting me instead. Wish him and his family success for more and regular bookings in future.
If you are considering a trip to Havana do not look any further. The house is located in the Vedado district in Havana. Perfect for accessing the city either Malecon or Central Havana. We walked everywhere. Walk to the Malecon is approx 5 mins. To Dance clubs approx 5 mins. Plenty of great restaurants within a 5-10 min walk. Walk to central Havana is aboun 20-25 mins. We got one taxi from the historical which I think cost us 10cuc.
The house is spotless. Spacious room with private bathroom with hot water and air-conditioning. Breakfast was prepared by Jorge and his wife and consisted of fruit to start followed by eggs and vegetables with bread and a gorgeous mango jam. This was delicous and kept us full all morning until we got lunch about 2/3pm most days.
Both Jorge and his wife were so helpful in helping us find our way around havana. A map is also provided to help you ground yourself to all the local amenities i.e. atm, currency exchange, restaurants, wifi etc.
We stayed with Jorge and his family and they were incredibly welcoming and helpful when it came to providing information about where to go, eat ect. They also helped us book accomodation in neighbouring cities, and transportation to and from. Rooms were comfortable, clean and breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend staying with this lovely family.
We stayed with Jorge and his family for our first week in Cuba and they made it absolutely wonderful. Jorge is very very nice and him and his family are great company. Jorge gave us great tips and made it very easy to settle in in Cuba and Havana. The room was large, the bed comfy, the bathroom was great and they cleaned the room every day. It's located in a very nice part of town, very close to the University and the Habana Libre, many great restaurants are located in the area and if you stay with Jorge, you won't regret it! Thank you very much for a wonderful time.
They are really kindness!!!!
It was a great experience staying with Jorge and his family, they're really nice people. :) Very open-minded, helpful, positive and willing to share their ideas about Cuba and the people who live there. Loved it, 5/5! Thank you Jorge. Best, Henna
We stayed here for 3 nights when we frist came to Havana. He was very helpful and arranged so that we got picked up at the AirPort. He and his wife are very sweet, and helped us find places to go, eat and where to book a bus to Trinidad. The room was nice and clean, the breakfast delicious and the company was great. Loved staying here!
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!
