    Rafael and his family were very nice. They gave me very good advices on how to move around in Havana. You should have breakfast at their home. Best one guarantee.

    This stay made our overall trip to Cuba a great experience! Rafael and Magdy made us feel so welcomed and only what we can describe as first class experience! They were very helpful in helping us get around, very friendly. The house is very clean and conveniently located.The breakfast was amazing! We had one morning where we decided to have breakfast at the Opera house and were very disappointed at the quality of the food. We actually came back home and tried to replicate Magdy's breakfast! :) We plan on returning to Cuba with family and friends and staying with them again. Thank you both for your hospitality, friendship and kindness - and your patience in letting us practice our Spanish! Till we meet again...

    Rafael and his family were so lovely and kind! Their house was very clean, great location, hot water. Magdy made us breakfast with hot coffee and freshly squeezed juice eggs and toast ready for the time we requested. The Children were wonderful and very quiet. We would not hesitate to stay with them again or recommend them to others!! Very helpful and accommodating as we arrived very late at night and departed very early in the morning.

    Todo o processo de contato com o Rafael foi super tranquilo e eficiente. Tivemos um problema na chegada ao aeroporto de Cuba e, por esse motivo, chegamos muito tarde à sua casa (3h da manhã). Mesmo assim, a recepção feita por sua esposa, Magdy, foi super acolhedora. No dia seguinte, com mais calma, começamos a conversar. Durante os dias em que ficamos hospedados, Rafael e Magdy foram incansáveis em proporcionar todas as informações e dicas de que precisávamos. Nos disseram como conhecer Havana da maneira mais econômica, nos ajudaram a arrumar hospedagem em outras cidades, e nos receberam de volta para nossa última noite antes de regressarmos ao Brasil.

    O apartamento é encantador, super novo e moderno. Os quartos são muito confortáveis, os banheiros também. Há uma varanda muitoagradável, da qual podíamos ver o movimento na rua. Na esquina da rua da Casa há um dos pontos de wifi do Estado, funcionando perfeitamente. Há também cafeteria, restaurantes e muitos taxis circulando todo o tempo.

    Descrever a estadia na Casa de Rafael e Magdy é falar sobre um tempo muito agradável, quase que com nossa própria família. Os Daiquiris preparados pela Magdy para nos presentear foram incríveis. Os melhores de todo o planeta!

    Rafael foi incansável em nos conseguir bons taxistas, boas indicações, e nos fazer ficar totalmente à vontade, confortáveis e seguros para andar pela cidade. Eu e os 3 amigos que ficamos na Terracita de 12 adoramos. Super indico.
