I must say I absolutely enjoyed staying with Alex at his Bed and Breakfast. Alex was such a wonderful host. His hospitality started well before our trip to Cuba - we exchanged emails for quite some time and made sure to answer any questions I had.
The apartment is located in Vedado, Habana which is like a 10/15 minute taxi ride from Old Habana. It is also close to a bank which comes in handy to exchange currencies. He is also three blocks from the famous Malecon.
Once we arrived, my six friends and I felt right at home. His apartment is beautiful! We rented all three bedrooms in which all were wonderful. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms were nice, clean and modern.
Every morning, Alex and his family prepared breakfast for us! The breakfast was simple yet delicious - fresh bread and fruit, freshly squeezed juice, and the best coffee I've ever tasted.
Also, Alex was super helpful with advice to make our time there that much better! On our first day, he made reservations for our friends and I at a close by restaurant. He also gave us advice on how to negotiate our taxi rides and even purchased our cigars for us!
I can't thank Alex enough for everything - he definitely played a part in making my trip to Cuba so lovely. Looking forward to staying with him on my next trip back to Cuba.
