This is a great base to recoup after a long flight to the beautiful Cuba. It is located in a residential area which is quiet and a 15 -20 minute cab ride to central Havana. Liliana the host is lovely and able to help you with transport etc if needed. If you need rest and relaxation this is the place for you. My 2 nights put me in good stead for the rest of my adventure around Cuba

Ileana was an amazing host. Her breakfasts were delicious and filled with fresh fruits and juices! She was so kind and motherly to us and made us feel right at home. Her home is cozy, clean, and covered in beautiful native plants and flowers. So sweet :)

Liliana's place was a wonderful place to stay. Being in Cuba for the first time we were challenged with what to do, how to get there and knowing limited Spanish, not able to communicate well. From the time we booked to the time we left Lili and her mother Ileana helped make us feel at ease with our travel and stay. They helped make arrangements for airport transportation and provided additional references for drivers to help us get around Havanna and out to the beach as well as many other locations. Ileana made us feel at home and treated us like family, putting us completely at ease as a guest in her home. Every morning we were treated to a hearty breakfast of fruits, coffee and omelettes. Liliana's place was airy, comfortable and clean, the front porch is filled with beautiful plants providing for a private outside area to relax. She attended to us frequently but gave us our privacy. The location is in Nuevo Vedado which is a few miles outside of Havanna so it's away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close enough to take a 10 minute ride into the city. We would highly recommend staying at Liliana's place, you will enjoy a clean affordable stay with a warm attentive Ileana as your host.

Our stay with ILeana's place was very comfortable, relaxing and good value for the money and she is an ever dotting grandmother with advice just as you would expect from your grandmother. Communication was strained by our lack of Spanish but we were usually able to make ourselves understood. Her help to arrange a taxi in the morning was a big help, it is worthy to note that travel back and forth to the old part of the city will cost at least 20 CUC per day, so something to consider when booking places. Our biggest issue was hot water - both when it was available and the apparent size of the tank - this being our first trip to Cuba, not sure how widespread this situation is. Overall a good experience both with ILeana and Cuba.

Thank you Dwight. Mom told me you had a great time and visited a lot of places in Habana. We are working to improve the hot water.

Staying with Iliana perfectly fit all of our needs. Her daughter, Liliana, set up for our arrival. She communicated to her mother all of our needs ahead of time and made sure a personal taxi was waiting patiently at the airport for us. I would recommend communicating with Liliana what you are looking for in terms of service and extras. We did not need laundry done and we wanted some space, but we enjoyed having breakfast (fruits, coffee, and toast) made for us each morning. Since Iliana speaks very little English, it was helpful messaging her daughter ahead of time. If you know a little Spanish or bring a phrase book, you will have no hardship. We had access to the kitchen and porch as well as TV and our room. The shower, toilet, and AC in our room were unexpected and amazing as we had many days of walking around a lot. We wanted Cuban life in the suburbs and we got it. The neighborhood is very friendly and vivacious. There were restaurants and food around, but you'll have to ask about them because it is not exactly apparent at first. The zoo was near us as well. Iliana made sure to connect us with a personal taxi service, so we got a nice tour and transportation whenever we needed it. Make sure you ask about prices ahead of each venture, but this was a much needed service to make sure we saw a lot of Havana the first couple days. It helped us get our bearings. Iliana is soooo kind and caring. She is somewhat hands on, but only because she cares about your experience. We were greeting with warmth each day and allowed our space without having to ask for it. She provided a great morning experience and made sure we were getting around to all we wanted to see. She had a beautiful home and showed us the Real cuban experience. If you are not sure about Cuba, are visiting for the first or second time, or just want to see Cuban life in a prime location, I would HIGHLY recommend staying with Iliana (it is a guaranteed great choice). Recommendations: - No internet so come prepared with a map app (I had havana city app, which was necessary. It gave descriptions of many restaurants, bars, and historic locations AND had an offline map that could locate you) - Bring a phrase book or offline phrase app if you speak little or no Spanish. Iliana is kind but knows very little English (but she tries to understand anyway). - Casa de Iliana is registered by the Cuban government to house guests, so you can check off the "aiding the Cuban people" section to get the visa. - Stay here if you come to Cuba!

Lleana ist eine nette ältere Gastgeberin. Die Unterkunft ist sauber und gepflegt. Das Frühstück war inklusive. In der Nähe befindet sich die Viazul Busstation, ca 10 min Fussweg. Lleana hatte auch gute Tipps zum Essen. Das Restaurant la Rosa Negra ist definitiv zu empfehlen und nur ein paar Geh-Minuten entfernt. Der Platz der Revolution ist circa 30 Minuten Fußweg entfernt. Dort halten auch die Hop-on Hop off Busse. Alles in allem ein sehr guter Einstieg in unseren Kuba Trip. Vielen Dank Lleana
