If you are coming to Havana definitely stay here. The apartment is massive and in a good safe part of old Havana. Karel's mother Maxima cooked us breakfast every morning for $5cuc each and it was a real highlight of our trip she is amazing, there is also a good restaurant up the road called "5 Esquinas". Highly recommended.

This is an extremely clean and well kept house. The street is quiet so it is very restful. It is located in a place in the city where there are some incredible restaurants. I will definitely be stations there next time!

Excellent location and approach of Karel , Maxima and Yuri. The stay in Havana was a bit more expensive I would have excepted, but it was worthy of it.

My friends and I had an unforgettable stay at Karel's place. The apartment is situated in Old Havana near the Malecon. Bedrooms are air conditioned and there are 2 full baths. 3 sleep quite comfortably but 1-6 could easily stay in the 3 double beds. Maxima made snacks for us upon arrival, fresh lemonade and juice throughout each day, provided bottled water, and made breakfast for each day (at an added cost at the end of the trip, but only 42cucs- which for 3 people over the long weekend was great.) Delicious cappuccino and biscotti, fresh tostones, fruit, eggs, bread, jam, queso, avocado, veggies, and ham. Yuri, Karel's brother, picked us up from the airport and provided us with a wonderful day tour of all the sights where we really got to experience the Cuban culture and learn about the rich history of the island. He also was great at arranging transportation and directing us to nightlife and the beach. He speaks English which was very helpful as we adjusted to practicing the native language on our own. We were not prepared for different taste of the bottled mineral water of Cuba so we suggest for American visitors to check their own water in their checked luggage. We also suggest extra toilet paper because it cannot be flushed and extra tp to toss in the garbage would be helpful. Paper products are a rarity in general so bring your own Kleenex or paper towels as well. Maxima also provided fresh towels for the beach upon request and cleaned the apt while we were out each day. We got to see and speak with Karel on our last day and to hear about his experiences abroad was truly fascinating. This family is amazing and we cannot wait to stay with them again. The warmth they provided by welcoming us into their home and their family is like none we had experienced. We are so blessed to have stayed here. This apt is highly recommended and a tremendously great value. Viva Cuba! Mucho besos!

Staying at Karel's place was the highlight of our Cuba trip. I and two girlfriends staying 5 nights at this charming apartment in Old Havana. Yuri, the younger brother of Karel was a great travel guide and very helpful. He arranged for an old car tour of Havana and a day trip to Vinales - both of which were great. He turned out to be our English/ Spanish translator for most of our trip as well! Maxima made us breakfast every morning - and they were delicious! I miss her warm Good mornings and cappuccinos already! All in all - a perfect stay in Havana!

Great location and apartment but that the star of the show was the people. Maximas big smile and warmth upon arrival and Yuri's knowledge of Cuba was invaluable to me. He showed me a good time and was very attentive to all my needs! Made some Cuban friends for life! Good job guys, be back soon!
