They greet you so nicely from the minute you get there. They explained everything and gave tips on getting around. The apartment was clean and everything worked fine. In the morning, Mercedes made delicious flat pancakes with a light syrup and tropical fruits. You can't beat the price and service, especially being in the Vedado District--everything is close by.
