Other Tips

- Even when is winter in Cuba you should be aware of sun burn. Bring Sun block.
- Cuban language is Spanish but a lot of people speak or at least understand English.
- Any kind of drugs is highly illegal in Cuba. Even when in some states/countries are legal for medical/recreational purposes Cuban laws wont allow it and it will be considered as trafficking.
- Internet Connection is located in public areas (WIFI Hotspots). No ADSL. The price starts at 1.50 CUC /Hour. You should buy Nauta cards (there are several points of sale near the hotspots), connect to the WIFI_ETECSA spot you find and, after trying to browse any page, a user and password will be asked. You will find it by scratching the card. At Hotels, rates can be higher.
- Tap water is not drinkable, buy bottled water or treat tap water with chlorine drops. Usually in the accomodations in Cuba the guests has acces to a fridge whit beverages, sodas, beer, water, and juice. Guests can consume all of this by an extra cost. The cost for each item is in a visible place of the house or in the fridge door.
- In Cuba regular voltage is 110V. Some rentals have 220V though. Outlet is type A or B (plane). If you have gadgets with round plugs try to bring Outlet converters.
- Cuban are friendly, so do not hesitate to ask away. In any case you will probably experience too much help!
- Download and install OsmAnd App in your phone. After installing, download Cuba-centralamerica Map to work offline. It works well with GPS and has lots POIs.
- Visa cards made in the USA doesn’t work to retrieve money in Cuba, so the suggestions is bring other visa cards or money in cash. The only visa card that works in Cuba is Visa International and the places for retrieve money from it is National Hotel and Melia Cohiba with these cards. If you bring european, mexican or canadian cards you can retrieve it in any ATM.

Didn't get to meet Giselle but the lady who looked after the apartment was incredibly hospitable. She was very friendly, informative, and easy to communicate even though my Spanish could use some work! Location is great - very centralized! And in the very hot months of Cuba, we were very thankful for the AC in the bedroom.

Giselles place was great and she responded quickly! Walking distance to Central Havana. Very close to the hotels, restaurants, bars, little shops, wifi parks, and more! I would definitely recommend. This place can easily fit 3 people. The only thing that made it kind of difficult for me was the AC, but you just have to keep it on for a long time for the room to get cool so I did not mention it. Definitely not a deal breaker, everything else was great! The fridge is stocked with beer, water, and juice! I would recommend the stay!

Apartment was in the perfect location. We were within walking distance of el capitolio ,local shops, restaurants, fruit markets. There were tons of local street cafeterias where the locals eat which I highly recommend. There is a beautiful view from the balcony which was a big plus. Transportation was never an issue because taxis were always available as well as bicytaxis for close trips. We were three woman traveling alone for a family visit and decided to stay at a private apartment. We felt very safe during our stay. Giselle and Alieda were amazing hosts that went above and beyond to help us in whatever we needed. Highly recommended !

Giselle was not immediately present but the host of the home took great care to make sure we were comfortable and also offered to arrange a taxi to/from the airport. The host does not speak English but we were able to communicate. The air conditioner worked best when the doors were closed to the main bedroom and the fan ran simultaneously. Hot water is plentiful and the home is spacious. Comfortably slept three. The best aspect of this home is its location -- very centrally located in Habana Vieja with a beautiful balcony view of the street life. Would definitely return and stay again!

We had a great stay in this apartment well-located between Plaza Vieja and El Capitolio. We never met Giselle, but her stand-ins, Aleida and Basulto, were excellent hosts. They aren't really English speakers but with some high school Spanish and their very cheerful efforts, we managed to communicate. The apartment was supplied with plenty of water, soda, beer, crackers and cookies, and even wifi cards with a mini-bar type pricing which was very convenient. Note: they don't have wifi- no one does-but you could use the cards at street spots or hotel lobbies. The airport transportation arranged was excellent as was the beach suggestion by Aleida and the transportation provided back and forth by Basulto. If anything, I'm sorry that we didn't ask them for more taxi support because those we arranged on our own weren't that great. Definitely would recommend if you're not averse to a few steps, as it is 3rd/4th floor and not staying alone. It was great to feel a part of the old Havana experience out on the balcony and the apartment was clean and had everything we needed including a working window AC in the bedroom which made for comfortable sleeping on hot Havana nights. Best thing though were the hosts, Aleida and Basulto.
