Although we enjoyed our stays is all airbnbs in Cuba, Leyanis's place had the strongest charm by far. The hosts were extremely accommodating and so kind to my dad and myself! The food was incredible - definitely ask for breakfasts, just for the sake of trying their fresh juice. The people around were very friendly: there is an art gallery on the first floor run by Leyanis's family friend, and he was helping us with all the enquirers when the hosts were unavailable. The location is superb, especially if you want to explore Havana by feet. Looking forward to coming back!

Fantastic location in central old Havana. A few streets away from the overcrowded tourist streets but very close to landmarks and beautiful local eateries and bars. Felt very safe and enjoyed having the separate space between the two bedrooms. The place is located above a great art gallery with very friendly owners who we spoke to a great deal about life in Cuba and became friends. Leyanis was an excellent host and always on hand to help. She even walked us to the bank a few blocks away so we could convert money. Her place is close to everything worth seeing in Havana! Directly opposite is a great local cafeteria, which if you're lucky, you can enjoy local prices at. Highly recommended. Cheers!

A truly wonderful apartment decorated in keeping with its age, it is surrounded by the very best that of all that is Havana....including views of the most iconic places, museums, galleries, restaurants and bars, as well as the Malecon, the port and an amazing variety of architecture. We never needed transport, we did everything on foot sauntering our way about. Leyanis and her dear family spoke and understood a little more English than we did Spanish. They put every effort into communicating directly with us. They also introduced us to the wonderful Pablo in his own gallery across the street who supplemented our endeavours by acting as interpreter and even teaching each of us what to say. He and his son offered to provide us with answers to our questions about Cuban etiquette. etc, too. A wealth of knowledge. Leyanis and others were extremely generous with their time.

Great warm welcome, very quiet location even though its extremely central to all of the tourist sights - everything is walkable and just a few hundred yards from the sea. Restaurants/cocktail bars very close by. There is a kettle and cups so if you take tea bags/instant coffee its possible to make your own drinks. There is a large fridge and you can buy drinking water directly from them. The 2 bedrooms and on separate levels with a shared sitting area (with outside balcony). Access up a steep flight of stairs. Would highly recommend.

November 2016 My husband and I enjoyed a great stay with Leyanis. The apartment was in the best location for exploring Old Havana and was very safe. It was spacious and very well-equipped. It was quiet but still very accessible to the Old Town and to bars and restaurants. Leyanis and her husband were very helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment for couples or families. It was exactly as described on Airbnb. A really great holiday.
