Yamir is a wonderful man, hugely reliable and extremely helpful. He has two places to rent, a room in his own apartment and a fully self -contained apartment nearby. Both are perfectly located in the old town area of Habana and I highly recommend both. We stayed mostly in the self-contained apartment and found it delightful to stay in. Yamir... More

Yamir was welcoming and helpful. I arrived without a reservation and he was able to accommodate me at last minute. I stayed in the backroom 2 nights and then the front. Both were comfortable. The location is one block off the main walking street of Obispo and about halfway between the Capitol and the main sites in Old Havana. Yamir... More

Overall great experience at yamir's. He was very helpful, and got anything we needed for us. Situated a block from the main touristy Street. Breakfast was great, eggs, fruits, milk, great coffee too. Something that my friends and I weren't expecting from a casa particular.

Situated in the heart of Havana Vieja Casa Yamir is within short walking distance of most of the museums and attractions in the area. The Casa itself is clean and welcoming and run by an extremely friendly and helpful couple. Yamir speaks very good English which was essential for me as I only have basic Spanish. He was more than...

They say that one's house is an extension of one's personality. Casa Yamir is both Yamir and Yula, clean, neat, organized, efficient. Our hosts were very helpful in providing insights into Cuban life, which was our primary interest! Never lacking in suggestions and responses to our questions, Yamir and Yula were very candid in sharing information. My girlfriend and I... More

You can't beat Casa Yamir for location in Havana Vieja nor can you beat Yamir for information on Havana or Cuba. The casa is run in partnership with Jula his wife who prepares a delicious breakfast of dinner if required - I can recommend both for authentic Cuban cuisine. The casa itself is simple, very clean but could do with... More
