We are young Cuban professors from University who joined to run some apartments in our free time. Understand singularity of Cuba could be arduous for visitors. Our main goal is to show you the access to the soul and skin of common reality of Cubans.

The space

We are offering the apartment with a discount of 25% of its real price because it has been recently opened to the guests.
The apartment is a duplex on the fourth floor of a families building in “Plaza de la Revolución” municipality. The climb up by the stairs can be a little tiring but the height will allow you to enjoy a beautiful view of most of the city with a great light and breeze. (For check in/out we can take your baggage up/down. service is included upon request).

Guest access

The apartment is rented left alone, just for the guests. It has a room with a queen size bed and air conditioner and a second room with a double bed.

Interaction with guests

Upon arrival you will be given the apartment keys and you can access to all spaces independently. We will pick you up at the Airport and we will welcome you in the apartment. We will be at your complete disposal for assist you in any issue you need during your stay with us. We have a net of contacts through all the country, so if you are planning to go around, we can advise on the plan and immediately find accommodation out of Havana.

Other things to note

For you to be well communicated during your stay in Cuba we offer you a SIM Cuban Card with a Phone device which has a basic credit. You don’t need to pay anything for this service. It is included on the booking. In the case your credit is finished, we could recharge. AT the end of the stay you should pay in cash the amount of the recharge.
The apartment is located near the intersection of Paseo and 23 streets, two of the most important avenues of Havana. So you will have plenty options of restaurants, bars, stores, cinemas, photo services, banks, parks, and taxis.

The apartment is lovely and spacious. Highly recommend Patricia, Pascual and their team, especially for first-time visitors to Havana: Pascual greeted us at the apartment and helped orient us to the area, customs, and transportation, and answered any questions we had. He's so kind and incredibly helpful -- we had trouble getting the hot water in the shower to work, and Pascual came over to the apartment to help us. The location is very central to restaurants and the Plaza de la Revolucion.

Patricia and Pascual were really great hosts. Patricia contacted me a few times before our arrival to organise a taxi from the airport. Pascual gave us lots of tips of what to do in Havana and how to travel to other places in Cuba. The breakfast made by the neighbour was also really delicious. The place was clean and comfortable and it was easy to get around the city. I would recommend staying here.

Patricia and Pascual were amazing hosts. They had arranged to pick us up from the airport and were very helpful the moment we met. When we arrived at the apartment Pascual took some time out explaining what and where we can go around Havana and recommended some really nice places to visit and eat, he gave us a guide which was very handy. The apartment was very clean and tidy and in the perfect location with an amazing view. I recommend everyone to get the morning breakfast from Maite! Woke up every morning looking forward to breakfast especially the fresh fruit and freshly squeezed juices. Patricia and Pascual makes you feel welcomed in to Cuba let alone their apartment. This was my first AirBnb booking and other hosts have a lot to live up to. Amazing hosts!

Patricia arranged go a driver to pick us up at the airport who pointed out to us some of the main landmarks on the way. The appartment was exactly as I had imagined from the pictures. Being on the top floor, it had a really airy feel to it and a wonderful view of brightly coloured Cuban rooftops and balconies of neighbouring apartments and the monument at Revelusion square. Pascal welcomed us into the appartment and provided us with some very useful information about our stay in Havana. We were also givin a phone to contact the team if we ever needed anything. One of the best things we had was Martha's breakfast. It's was defenitly a great place to stay for our first few days in Havana. Patricia's team were all very professional.

I cannot speak more highly of our stay in Patricia's apartment. Pascual was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the area and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and in an excellent location - the sunrise from the balcony was magnificent. Patricia arranged for Riccardo (Ricky) to come and collect us from the airport and I think we will be friends for many years to come - Ricky was lovely, caring and made amazing recommendations for where we should visit. We will miss him a lot!

Patricia and her team of Professors (Rocio and Leo) did a fantastic job of hosting my husband and I in Cuba. It was our first time visiting and they made sure to take care of us from the start. We got picked up at the airport (this made it so easy for us to find the apartment and not have to hassle with others for taxis). Patricia's dad also waited for us at the airport for over an hour (since our baggage was delayed). When we got to the apartment, Rocio was waiting for us with her husband to help us up the stairs and to check us in. Both Rocio and Lester were helpful in explaining Cuban culture and customs, educating us about how much to tip, how much to bargain for souvenirs and taxis, and what places to check out during our stay. They essentially taught us Cuba 101 and gave us great suggestions/recommendations. Do note that the Professors offer tours and experiences and we definitely recommend doing them if you can. We did the Countryside Tour and boy, was it worth it! We essentially spent the entire day with a family living in the farmland areas of Cuba and we LOVED the experience. We made friends with Leo, who was our guide, and he did an AMAZING job of taking us out. A big shout out to Alfredo, our driver, who drove us 2 hours to and from the farm in his classic car. All in all, I would definitely recommend booking with the Professors. The apartment itself was clean, spacious, two levels, two bedrooms with a king size bed, and clean. The maid came in to clean every 2 days. Rocio also gave us a local phone to reach her at anytime day or night if we had questions. All in all, I would recommend staying here. The only thing that we had difficulty with was the address - sometimes, taxi drivers were unable to find the apartment, but with our help and the help of other locals, they would eventually find it. If you don't mind a little bit of walking, and like adventure, I would recommend staying here.

Highly recommend (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication with Yenni prior to booking was so helpful and prompt and once we arrived, David was great at welcoming us and providing suggestions on things to do. The cell phone he provided was beyond clutch! The apartment was nice, clean and the air conditioned. The neighbors were very friendly as well. In terms of location, the Plaza de la Revolucion is only about a 5 minute walk and from that area you can easily grab a taxi. If I ever come back to Cuba I will definitely stay in one of the Professors' apartments because the entire team was great. Also, make sure to check out the experiences that the team offers as well. We did two and they were the highlights of our trip (AfroCuban Experience and Havana on Foot).
