For those interested in visiting other provinces, contacts in other houses can be made.
In the house, there is a map of Havana, big enough to identify the places where you would like to go.
The neighborhood is safe, surprising for its variety of architectural styles, baroque, neo-gothic, neo-classical, eclectic, art nouveau, and art deco, modernist and post-modernist. Streets that are both, ancient and modern, extraordinary and authentic, just waiting to be rediscovered.

Fanny is the most perfect human being in the world. I couldn’t speak more highly of her. She was like our Cuban mum whilst we were travelling from Australia.
Fanny & her family were very great hosts. Very warm welcome, good recommendations and nice and funny chats. Very good breakfast, clean rooms in the center of Havanna.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Fanny could not have given us a more wonderful experience. It was our first time in Cuba and she immediately made us feel welcome and reassured. She gave us a well of local knowledge and advice and could not have been more patient, kind and humorous with our constant questions.
The bedrooms are clean and the location is simply brilliant as it is 10 seconds from the Prado from which you can easily orientate yourself around the city's highlights.
The breakfasts were huge and delicious.

We stayed at Fanny's beautiful, clean and spacious casa for 2 nights in the beginning of our trip. We liked it so much that we added another night at the end of it. The casa is perfect for exploring Havana. Many sights are withing walking distance. But the best thing is that Fanny and her family are absolutely warm and welcoming. Fanny speaks english fluently and helped us a lot with directions and recommendations. Moreover we had good conversations with her which also helped us to understand Cuba. Thank you very much!!! We felt like home at your casa :)
