JOHNNY AND TERESSA WERECGRET!

It was a bit challenging to locate Teresa. We eventually just yelled "hello" into a random window. I had read another review that said the folks standing around called for Teresa when they saw folks looking for her. I took a chance and it was Teresa's window. The location was fine, just close enough. There is a good place to eat very very close. Sign on the window says Me Gusta and it's a pink building- it was nice to have a place so close. The place was perfectly clean. We didn't always have hot water but it wasn't a big deal to me- VERY likely I just didn't turn the knob enough (my friend thought it worked fine). Yoniel (Johnny) was wonderful. I had read he over stayed his welcome in another review so I was cautious of him. Turns out he's not a creep, not a flirt and not trying to steal at all. He's just trying to be helpful. There aren't a lot of opportunities for employment there and you'll find all Airb&Bs there have a sort of "assistant" to help you figure out the lay of the land (I encountered at least 3 other AirB&B assistants- so it's totally normal there). Random people in Cuba try to "help" you with information and then ask for "a little help". It was actually sort of refreshing to see them try to offer us value before asking for something. I live in DC and it's just not that way here. But you really don't know those people so just keep moving. Get your help from the person connected to your AirB&B. Yoniel (Johnny) made everything easy, we needed a car, he had one waiting for us ($15 for 3 people to catch a ride to the beach- GREAT price), we wanted cigars- he picked them up and brought them to us for much less than what we would have paid in another store for them. I needed a phone charger that was impossible to find there- he borrowed one from a friend TWICE for me and brought it to me.- so you know what I don't mind tipping him for his excellent service. He didn't directly ask but if you don't feel inclined to repay some of this sort of kindness- you might not be a good person ;). In retrospect- Johnny not only made things easier for us he really amplified our experience. It's hard traveling somewhere new and yes you should be cautions of new people but I'm happy to tell you I think you are just fine in this AirB&B and with Johnny. Johnny is the biggest amenity to this place. I think he helped also connect us to other people we wouldn't normally had interacted with- they (like the bartender) knew him and we were "with him" so we were accepted without apprehension. My advice is to stay here and don't be shy, be kind and friendly it will go a long way. I should...

The apt has a Swiss owner and is managed by her mother-in-law who lives near by. When we arrived we could not get into the apt because the manager said she had no record that we had rented and paid for the apt. We found out she had rented it for nearly half the price to some Swiss female students. What followed was a heated argument in the street in the heat between the manager and our guide with the distressed students looking. They said they had had the same problem several times before with this person. It was finally agreed that the students would move to another apartment. If we had not had an assertive Spanish speaking guide, we would have been left in the street with no place to stay after we had already paid for this apartment. I am 74 with disabilities and this was very difficult. There were bugs in the apartment. The electrical wiring runs down the outside of the wall on the staircase to the apt. We checked around and there are better values. I would not stay here again. We asked for a refund and the owner refused.

The accomodation is located in the china town area of Havana. A short walk to El Capitolio. The breakfast was good every day consisting of mixture of fruit, juice, coffee and an omelette or eggs. The air conditioning units in the bedrooms, whilst a bit noisy, were good at cooling the rooms. The balcony is good to sit out on and watch the busy Havana street below.

The apartment was BEAUTIFUL!! We stayed at another apartment for some of our time in Havana and regretted it as soon as we walked into Sonja's place. Not only was it beautiful, it was clean and she was SO friendly. There was fresh fruit and cold water waiting for us. She let us know it was okay to leave the windows open and not to hesitate to ask her for anything if we needed as she lives close by. Would 10000% stay here again and recommend Sonja's apartment to anyone going to Havana.

My group of three (24-29 year old Americans) enjoyed Sonja's place. It was clean, comfortable and secure/safe for our stay. It is proximal to Old Havana and tourist attractions, but not quite "in the center of things" -- so if that's what you're looking for, look in Old Havana. We were a bit confused about the check-in process. Instructions indicated that we should go to the listed address and ask for Teresa. We did so and easily found Teresa. One of Teresa's helpers then walked us around the corner to our Airbnb. My group set off for the day and managed to get lost/couldn't find our Airbnb on return, because the address we had documented was Teresa's and not our actual Airbnb. This was a bit frustrating after a long day. This can be easily mediated by giving guests their physical address upon arrival. Breakfast is offered. One of Teresa's helpers will come to the apt at a time of your request with breakfast of your request and cook and clean it up for you for 3-5 CUC per person (seemed like the price was a bit negotiable). Breakfast was good. You can purchase wifi for 1-2 CUC/ hr from the boys who sit on the street outside/down below the Airbnb balcony. They will enter the wifi password on your phone and then you can use it on the balcony (but not inside) the apartment. We only did this once and the wifi worked, but wasn't the strongest. Adequate to load social media and send an iMessage or two. On our second day, we were approached by Johnny (Teresa's "godson") who is a tour guide of sorts. He helped us out and was useful in making recommendations for places to go and setting up rides. He did overstay his welcome a bit which was awkward. He didn't ask for any set amount of money for his help... but expected significant tips. My advice would be to set expectations with Johnny in the beginning and remember you are in control of how much "help" he provides. Overall, we had a great trip and would highly recommend a trip to Havana to anyone interested in rich culture and interesting travel. Sonja's place was great for my group. I hope the above recommendations/tips are useful for future guests, as they are things I wish I had known in advance.

Deine Gastgeber heissen Sonja und Yoel. Wir sind die Besitzer dieser Wohnung und mit uns hast du mehrheitlich nur für das administrative zu tun. Wir leben gemeinsam seit über 9 Jahren zusammen in der Schweiz und sind verheiratet. Ylena, so heisst unsere gemeinsame Tochter, wird bald ein Geschwisterchen bekommen.

Wer du vor Ort aber antreffen wirst, das ist Teresa. Das ist Yoel's Mutter. Sie kümmert sich rührend um unsere Gäste. Sie bereitet das morgen Essen vor, putzt und wascht eure Wäsche.

Fühl dich wie zuhause und Erfahre, wie es sich mitten in den Gassen Havanna's wohnen lässt. Nuestra Casa es su Casa :-)

Your host name are Sonja and Yoel. We are the owner of this apartement. Because we're living in Switzerland, you've got contact with us mostly only by Mail, reservation, administration things. We are married and Ylena, this is our little daughter, will get soon a little sister.

Who you will find at Place, is Teresa. She is Yoel's mother. She is taking care about our gasts, she is making breakfast, cleaning the house and is doing loundry if you ask for.

Feel like home in our apartement and sense how it feels like to life in the middle of the alley of Havana.
