    Carmen and Carlos are exceptionally personable, nice, open-minded people who welcome you as if you were a friend. The apartments are incredibly beautiful, very stylish, with a small balcony, large roof terrace and a wonderful salon. Everything is nice, clean and extremely cozy. The location is perfect. And whatever you ask, Carmen has a solution. All the best to you and good luck on your way forward! Andreas & Andrea Kuba (!!!)

    Carmen and Carlos' house is simply beautiful! They've spent a lot of time and effort making sure that the house maintained it's authentic structure and design - spacious rooms, beautiful high ceilings and original furniture. The bathrooms are brand new, there is air conditioning, and I loved hanging out on the balcony at night watching people go by. Breakfast on the terrace is a great way to start the day.

    Carmen and Carlos are wonderful hosts, very warm and ready to help with anything you need. A perfect way to start our time in Cuba! Thank you so much! :)

    We had a very good stay in Havana at Carmen and Carlos' place. The room was beautiful with a nice balcony, private bathroom, good beds and air conditioning. Also, every morning the room was cleaned! Carmen is a kind host who prepared a good breakfast each morning. Good place to stay if you search something in Old Havana.
