This apartment is charming and spotlessly clean. It is very convenient for the tourist attractions of the Old Town. The breakfasts cooked by Calentina are superb - and everyone associated with it was super to us throughout our stay.
We loved our stay in Maykel's flat. Valentina was great host. The apartment is surprisingly spacious & the surronding area charming; walking distance to the spots in the old Havana. We would stay there again.
Convenient location in a very authentic Cuban neighbourhood. Lovely high-ceilinged apartment.
Thank you Nancy & Maykel! This is a charming apartment and we were very comfortable here. We especially appreciated the pickup service from the airport and the breakfasts & help we received from Valentina (whom I miss already!)
Be prepared for a truly authentic experience. The street is alive with sound and friendly people! Make sure you eat at Don Lorenzo's down the street (the fish filet is so good). It is a short walk to the Malecon (turn left from your door and continue down the street) and there are many beautiful sights to see.
The apartment has 3 bedrooms (each with a double bed) and 2 bathrooms. The showers have hot & cold water. There is a full kitchen, and a furnished living / dining room. The security of the apartment is a little different from what you experience in Canada but we felt completely safe once we acclimatized. We are a family of 6 with our youngest child 12 years of age. We stayed here for 4 nights in January 2016 and hope to return someday!
Everything about this house was great. Apart from being well maintained and beautiful, there was an ac too for when it got too hot!
The locals are friendly and the neighbors downstairs are helpful. I would totally return to this house. The balcony is beautiful! I only stayed with another person, but this house could easily accommodate many people. I truly enjoyed my stay here. I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
The place was clean and was situated in the center of Havana. Contact with Maykel was very good and he helped us with transport from the airport. The downside was the price. It was twice as big as in other places in the center of Havana.
The place was perfect. You could see that Maykel put a lot of love and effort in the rebuilding of his beautiful colonial apartment. The apartment is really spacious and we loved the neighborhood. It is in the heart of old Havana. We almost walked everywhere. The apartment is located in a small street where you can experience the typical Cuban live. Old man playing domino in front of the house, salsa music across the street and friendly neighbors next to us. The breakfast at Makels place was delicious and rich in variety. Maykel showed us the beach, recommended us awesome (local) restaurants and helped us with all our questions for our further trip through cuba. Before we even arrived he offered his help with everything. It was so nice that he picked us up from the airport. I travel a lot but a never had such a nice host. Thank you Maykel for this great experience. We definitely come back. You are such lovely person with a beautiful apartment.
Nach anfänglicher verwirrung bzgl der bezahlung und mehrerer emails und telefonate konnten wir uns über eine gut gelegene wohnung mit wahrlich kubanischem flair freuen. Kein vergleich zu meinem früheren aufenthalt in einem int. Hotel. In der wohnung ist man im Kubanischen leben mit allen vor- und nachteilen angekommen.
Charmant appart de type colonial ....vraiment très romantique dans un quartier populaire du Vieux Havane...j'y retournerais! La voisine du feu est charmante et la cocinera également très gentille!
Eine der besten Unterkünfte die wir bei unserer Rundreise in Kuba hatten. Die Lage sowie das Flair dieser Wohnung ist super.
Sehr zentrale Lage. Schöne Wohnung, bestens geeignet für eine Gruppe/Familie mit 6 Personen. Für uns zwei eigentlich zu gross und entsprechen zu teuer;-)
Great appartment (considering Habana standards). Very well situated in a typical (lively)street and within walking distance of most major visiting sites. More expensive than in a casa, but then again, we had the full, 3 bedroom appartment for just us.
Very well located within close to the sights of Old Havanna.
Bei der Ankunft nicht vom Äußeren Umfeld abschrecken lassen, einfach überraschen lassen! Kontaktperson vor Ort sollte zumindest englisch sprechen können. Gerne wieder!
We were twice in this very spacious flat when we touring Cuba. The host is very friendly and helpful. The flat is well equipped and is very handy located for all sights in Havanna Vieja. We have missing in the kitchen for boiling water a pot and a small cooking pot and at last a toaster.

Die Wohnung hatte ausreichend Platz für 5 Personen und es war erstaunlich ruhig in den Schlafzimmern. Mitten in Alt-Havanna gelegen, waren alle Wege kurz und wir waren mitten drin im Leben. Wir haben uns ausgesprochen wohlfgefühlt. Ein schöner Endpunkt für unsere Kuba-Reise
What a flat - very spacious, tasteful decorated, very clean, furnished with a very good taste - its much better than the photos show! The area is perfect - everything we wanted to see in walking distance - and still not loud even its in the middle of havana. nice an helpful neighbours.
