Our stay at Ruben' s apartment was great! The apartment is located right next to Plaza Vieja, banks, museums, taxis and restaurants. A great breakfast was prepared by Yusi every morning before we left the apartment for the day. The tour that Ruben signed us up for was the best thing we could every done!!!! Our private tour guide was very informative and was able to give us the ins and outs of Cuba. I would defiantly stay here again and recommend for anyone who's going to Cuba for the 1st time.

Ruben is such a great host - he gave us a phone to use and we contacted him for questions and recommendations, and he provided lots of information really quickly! Breakfast was included. The location was perfect.

Ruben made our trip to Habana very easy. He arranged tours and transportation for our family and provided every convenience when we arrived. He lent us CUC until we could exchange our currency and even provided us with a cell phone so that we could easily contact him during our stay. Also included in the rental price is breakfast. A lovely woman came in every morning prepared our breakfast, and then cam back after we finished to clean up! It was quite a treat, and of course included fantastic tropical fruit.

Our stay here was wonderful. Rubens place is amazingly located. Our second time in Cuba and we saved alot of money on taxi. The phone he provides is a added benefit. We're from the US and traveled in from Cancun MX which makes it very easy and can get visas in 5 min and cost $25. Highly recommended this route to avoid travel restrictions after all we live in a free country!

Ruben's place is in a great location a few steps from plaza vieja. He was very accommodating when my friends' were a few hours late to check in due to flight issues. He was also very helpful is setting up a last minute room for my friends who were traveling back from Trinidad a night early to catch a flight. Would definitely recommend you stay at Ruben's home
