Great apartment at Habana Vieja’s centre. Only a few steps from the Capitolio, Gran Teatro, Parque Central, El Chanchullero and El Floridita—home of Hemingway's preferred Daiquiris! Immerse yourself in Cuba’s unique atmosphere from a calm apartment on the 3rd floor of a 1920s Spanish-designed building. Take advantage of the superb location to discover all Havana's got to offer!

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families.

We look forward to welcoming you!

We had a great stay at Alba's place. The location is incredible. The apartment is in Habana Vieja, just few minutes to la floridita and walking distance to the best parts of Habana. Alba and Maykel were very nice and hospital. They were also able to send a driver to pick us up at the airport. The apartment is very clean. Despite being in the middle of August, it was not too badly hot, opening the windows there was a nice breeze all day or night. They gave us enough recommendations for bars and restaurants which are very close. We had a great time!!!

The apartment is at an excellent location to start exploring La Habana Vieja. There are many good places to eat nearby (the guidebook Alba put together for her guests is incredibly helpful). The place is two blocks away from Floridita so that serves as a great reference point if asking for directions. Even before embarking on our journey, Alba was incredibly helpful. She answered all of our questions which helped us plan our trip (we were looking into doing a day trip to Viñales and we had many questions!) She coordinated to have Omar pick us up from the airport (he also drove us back - he's awesome). Upon arriving at the apartment, we met Alba and Arianna. They helped us get acclimated with the area, informed us of things to do, and again, answered all our questions. Arianna helped us find someone who could take us on a city tour, as well as someone who could take us to Fusterlandia (a must-see, btw) and Viñales. The apartment is a third floor walk-up and the ceilings are quite high, so there are many stairs. It's a workout-- you get used to it. Although there is no A/C, there's a fan in each room. The blue room has a window that lets in a nice breeze (the living room balcony also lets in a nice breeze in the evening). There is also a pump that helps increase the water pressure in the shower. Over all, the experience was great thanks to everyone we met along the way. We loved staying in the apartment. Alba, Arianna and Maykel: THANK YOU!

There is no A/C , something I missed on those hot humid Cuban nights. Also, there is no TV or radio in the apartment. Water pressure is a big problem in Cuba, and for that reason this apartment has a water pump to increase the pressure when you shower.

Fantastic hosts and apartment. You're right in the middle of Old Havana. Apartment is spacious and clean. If you're going when it's very hot, it's good to note that there is no AC and it's a few flights up. Still totally worth it!

It depends on how you evaluate this place. I chose to rate it based on the rest of the neighborhood. It has a wonderful location in the heart of old havana. It is however subjected to the same sanction rought poverty & decay that all places in this neighborhood are. The neighborhood doesn't have a lot of running water. So they have to pump water to huge vats on in the ceiling. So there were some challenges with water pressure and hot showers. But who really cares if you've come to experience Cuba with an eager open mind? So unless you are staying in the are super posh tourist hotels then, in relativity to the rest of the neighborhood, this place top notch. But if you are someone used to fine dining and 3 star hotels in NY or London and not open to other experiences, then you might find this place wanting. For me, I felt very comfortable and would go back. Alba arranged a great taxi driver. Alba's associate Arianna is wonderful. It is a safe neighborhood for tourists. You have to get used to locals trying to rope you to restaurants for some sort of commission. But no one will cross a line that is scary. The local bar in the building at the corner is a good place to finish off the night and listen to local musicians. You are very close to El Chanchullero, which is a must. It's a long walk up the stairs because of the cathedral ceilings.

This place is right in the middle of Old Havana. It is perfect for walking all over the town. It's near shops and restaurants. There's public transportation very near too. Keep in mind, there are no elevators in the building and the apartment is located on the top floor. There are approximately 80 steps to climb. But the apartment itself is very clean and tidy. Although we didn't get to meet Alba, she was very helpful before our arrival. There was a taxi waiting for us at the airport. Even though our flight arrived almost 2 hrs later. When we got to the apartment Adrianna was already waiting for us with keys and to answer any questions we had. SHE IS ABSULOTELY WONDERFUL!! She treated us like family!! Like if she's known us forever. She was very helpful and suggested things for us to do and visit. Overall, I would definitely stay at this location again. And I would highly recommend it to everybody I know.
