This “Classic Modern” honors the roots of the best of Cuban style, a reminiscence from when Havana was America’s latest fashion. It ain’t right to call it ‘luxurious’, but instead ‘traditional’: All cuban original mahogany wood, natural lightings, true comfort packed into an exquisitely private accommodation. This lite version of a residential penthouse sports an exciting modern touch along with a good-old-fashioned sensation; the heritage of Cuba’s Golden Age in a up-to-date cuban apartment.

Ricardo is the BEST host I have ever had with airbnb an de I truly mean that! He was there for us whenever we needed him. His English is excellent for Thai who don't speak Spanish. His apartment is very nice and even though it's a bit far (a solid hour walk) from Old Havana area, we actually enjoyed staying outside of the touristy areas. Food was MUCH cheaper around us. Like $3USD for a full homecooked delicious meal! We loved staying here. And again, Ricardo is so great! He set up dinner reservations for us and gave us a very detailed info about the area when we checked in. I also highly suggest downloading maps.me as he suggests!

Ricardo's place is away from a lot of the action and hustle and bustle of Old Havana but it was absolutely perfect for me. It's a short cab ride in to Old Havana or even the other areas like Vedado. I also found that there are a handful of tiny restaurants nearby Ricardo's place that you have to go check out! Don't be afraid to explore the area, the stronger your Spanish the better off you'll be. The little flat upstairs is great for one traveling alone or for a couple. I enjoyed the rooftop patio upstairs as well where I did both yoga and worked out! Almost every morning I had breakfast there at the flat made by Ricardo and it was great! I highly recommend ordering it, for the price of 5cuc a day it's totally worth it. I wanted to be able to have an authentic Cuban experience of all of Havana. That's exactly what I got but being there instead of the touristy areas wasn't the best part. The best part was the wealth of knowledge and information that Ricardo possesses. He also knows where you can get a private ride to the countryside for other excursions, be sure to ask! He was warm and friendly and above all extremely helpful. Everything is exactly as it looks in the pictures and is super clean. I highly recommend Ricardo's place and would definitely stay there again.

Ricardo is a perfect, available, kind and very reliable host! He helped me alot to get around easily and his permanent availability makes really one feel safe and at ease to explore and enjoy La Havana and have a great vacation! The appartment is very cosy, confortable and perfectly clean as in the pictures and the air conditioning in the bedroom is very nice! Also, there is a large private terrace as the flat is on a rooftop which is very pleasant to enjoy the sun and a nice View! Finally, I really loved the fresh breakfast composed of simple and delicious fresh produce and bakery and served daily by the host in the apartment! In one word, I highly recommend Ricardo's flat!

The appartment is great! We stayed 2 times during our trip trough Cuba, and is was the best we had in our trip. Next to this is Ricardo is a really great host. He is very communicative, you can ask him really everthing. The appartment is a bit out of the busy city, which is Nice for relaxing times and long sleeps. Ricardo explained How to get the Cuban way to the center (cheaper than taling a taxi). Thanks again for everything Ricardo really enjoyed also the great conversations we had!!

The communication before our arrival was easy and we got some helpful advice for our first stay in cuba. The flat is perfect and very clean. Ricardo was the best host we could have wished for, always helpful, uncomplicated and really nice. Breakfast times were variable, depending on our plans for the day. The flat is located in a friendly and quiet area of havanna, not far from old havanna. All in all this was the perfect host for a good start to our journey. We would always come back. :)

Hello, my name is Ricardo Tamayo, I used to be a physician in my homeland Cuba before committing full time to Airbnb. I’m in love with this country, the people, the history, the energy in here. This is not just an island, this is a place where miracles happen. You have to be here to see it. It's a joy to me to be part of this great community called Airbnb, it's amazing, people gather here to share experiences more than just to look for a place to spend the night. There are so many incredible things listed here; from all across the world, and I hope that people from all across the world like mine as well. My hobbies include reading, mostly scientific topics (science is my passion) and fitness like jogging in the morning is a must for every week. This is a great opportunity to share with other people and not just your home but also to get them involved in your culture, to me guests are the most important and I really care about giving them my best, to make them feel as family by providing the most warm and welcoming experience of Cuba.
