We had a really lovely time staying at Federico and Yanet's appartment - they were wonderful hosts and gave a lot of helpful suggestions (places to eat, events, transportation ...). Room and service were better than in some of the 4-5 * hotels we had stayed at previously during our round trip, and especially the breakfast was amazing! The central...

Federico and Yanet are gracious and amazing hosts. I had stayed with Federico years ago and was so happy to return. I was travelling solo and they treated me like part of their family, always checking in on me, giving advice on places to go and things to do and always having time for a chat. The room is spacious,...

We stayed 7 nights in total , 3 at the start of our trip and 4 at the end. The location is excellent. Easy walks to anywhere in Havana, but particularly night walks along the Malecon or Prado were trip highlights. 2 rooms, one larger than the other and more comfortable for longer stay. Rooms and bathrooms spotlessly clean. Breakfasts...

During my 2nd Cuba Trip in 2016 (I visited Cuba already in 2015) I again stayed @ Federico's great Casa particular in centro Havanna. The fact that I went to this place again demonstrates my great satisfaction with regards to this casa and I can recommend it to everybody to go there. Especially due to the perfect location close to...

Stayed here for 3 days which was excellent. The other reviews are accurate. This place turned into something special. First, I left just under €500 in a cupboard by mistake. I didn't use the safe in the room as I always leave stuff in them! So, as soon as I realised I rang to let them know. Yanet found it...

The casa "Balcon de Yamelis" is very well located, near Plaza Vieja, in old Havana. You can spend great time just walking around the casa. Be sure to have a heartwarming welcome when you arrive there. Room and bathroom are very clean, you even have the air conditionning. Yamelis gave us many advices and helped us to organize our trip...

We unfortunately didn't get to meet Frederico, but Yanet was and excellent host! This Casa is ideally located at the beginning of the Prado and you can easily walk from this place to almost all the attractions in the city. Malecon, Central Park, Obispo street, Museo de la Revolucion and Plaza de Armas just to name a few. When going...

We arrived to Vista al Prado on Sunday morning, hoping there might be a free room for us. We had slept not so well in the previous place and were quite weary. Unfortunately this casa had no free rooms, but the friendly host Federico offered us refreshing drinks of papaya juice and led us to another casa which just had...
