thank you for the wonderful time spent in your House . It was a pleasure for us to meet you . Thank you hope to see you again . Jane :)
Jorge and Nardy are lovely hosts, very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The casa is clean and comfortable, and in a quiet location.
Lovely Hosts, super Breakfast. Nice and clean Rooms and really helpful People in every Situation. Couldn't have been a better experience, Thanks for everything!
I love this little place! And Jorge and his lovely wife Nardy are so amazing and are the cutest couple. I miss them already! Great location, cozy house and nice breakfast. Most importantly, beautiful host and hostess. Such wonderful people that make you feel welcomed and at home, and they have a great sense of humour as well. Just overall an awesome experience here. The room is clean and comfortable, breakfast (pay extra) is plenty, yummy and fresh, and the location is pretty central (35 minute walk to old Havana but there are plenty of restaurants around - try the limonada fresca at El Biky - and the university is right there). I definitely recommend this place and will come here again the next time I go to Havana! Gracias por todo, Jorge y Nardy!
Lieber Jorge und Famile! Wir bedanken uns für den angenehmen Aufenthalt bei euch! Bei Fragen habt ihr uns immer geholfen! Wir haben uns so wohl gefühlt, dass wir in den 3 Wochen auf Kuba gleich zweimal bei euch waren! Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Querido Jorge y familia! Te agradecemos la agradable estancia contigo! Para preguntas siempre nos has ayudado! ¡Nos sentimos tan bien que estuvimos con usted dos veces en las 3 semanas en Cuba! ¡Volveremos!
Tuve el placer de estar en esta casa linda durante los primeros 4 días de mi viaje. Jorge y su mujer son tan simpáticos, ayudan con todo (me dieron buenos consejos haha), me encantaron las conservaciones durante el desayuno (que era muy rico!). Cuando llegué ya era muy tarde y eso no fue ningún problema: siempre hay alguien en la casa para atender a los huéspedes. Muchas gracias por todo, me he sentido muy bienvenida!!
My previous review was in error due to a mistake in my clicking. 5 hearts for this great place!
I had the good fortune to spend several days with Jorge and Nadia in their lovely home. It is a quiet location with easy access to Old Havana and other parts of the city. They know the city well and were so kind and helpful in making my trip something I will always hold dear. The only downside was having to leave!
Everything was perfect, from the location, cleanliness of the room to the quality of breakfast! We were really well received by the familly! Many thanks again to make our stay in La Habana enjoyable!
I had the pleasure of staying with Jorge and his family for 2 and a half weeks. My first solo travel accommodation and Nadia was there to greet me with a great big hug at breakfast. We laughed despite the language barrier and she really made me feel at ease. The whole of Jorge and his family were more than willing to help out where they could. From being incredibly patient when I was working on my Spanish, prometo que practicaré! To even finding nearby accommodation for a recent friend I made in Cuba, returning to Havana early with nowhere to stay. The hospitality is second to none, thank you!
