We really enjoyed our stay with Maria! She was a great host (despite being under the weather during our stay), and the room is as described, in an excellent location both for getting a feel for a more residential neighbourhood in Centro Habana, and for getting around to other parts of Habana (we mostly walked everywhere from here!)

Fantastic location in a traditional Havana building with high ceilings and a wrap around balcony. A short walk from the Malécon and direct route into the centre of town. Maria the host was always on hand with recommendations, coffee and beers! Laine sent us a great info sheet with tips and recommendations before hand which was really helpful.

Maria is a wonderful host who will make you feel like family and truly cares for her visitors. Breakfast was great and the rooftop has a great view of the city. The quality of the location depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking to experience the "reality of Havana" then this is the place for you! If you want to stay in a place that feels more like a fancy hotel, Verado or Miramar would be the right option. It's a close walk to Verado and the Malecon, the street fills up with locals early in the morning to the night- a true experience of the culture. Definitely an area where the real Cuban life is visible.

Maria was amazing (and her cool apartment)! I had a great time at her house and it felt like HOME. That's hard for me to say so that says a lot in itself. The apartment was super clean and super comfortable. There is no A/C, but you're in Cuba so that's about right. She does have a fan available in each room and that does the trick. The location is also great and very central. Once you learn the ropes of Havana you will quickly realize how centrally located this apartment actually is to everywhere you need to be. This is a walking city so have some comfortable shoes on and plenty of sunscreen. Maria's house is located about 25-30 minute walk to Old Havana but you can quickly catch an inexpensive ride down there that takes about 5 minutes and about $0.50. You're also very close to the posh Vedado, which houses some great restaurants and entertainment. Overall, a really great experience with Maria on a personal level as well as an amazing stay. I would highly recommend staying at Maria's casa you're take away will be far more than a comfortable place to stay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Maria's casa. Her home is very centrally located and close to places for a quick coffee in the morning or food. The casa is in Cental Havana, which is great because it is away from the hustle and bustle of tourist life in Havana Vieja, but close enough to have an enjoyable walk to it. Maria was a great host during my stay at her place. Before arriving, Maria went out of her way to book reservations at two really beautiful restaurants for me (San Cristobal and El Cocinero). She also provided a lot of insight and invaluable knowledge to Cuba. This helped with getting around places and being comfortable with Cuba's cultural nuances. Additionally, Maria sought and provided me with such a special experience into the Afro-Cuban religion of Santeria by not only sharing her experience, but introducing me to people that shared with me so much. Something I couldn't have imagined having. All in all, if you choose Maria's place, you will be well taken care of during your trip to Cuba. Its a great place to introduce yourself to Havana. I would definitely stay here again, if i had the chance to! Thank you Maria for everything!
