This is the perfect place to stay in Habana Vieja, close to everything. We stayed for 3 days and walked everywhere from the apartment. Isel y Maria Julia are wonderful hostesses who were unbelievably helpful in every way. Isel helped us with travel plans around Havana and even arranged a cool casa for us in Vinales. Basically, she was there...

Isel, Ileana and M. Julia gave us the opportunity to truly live Old Havana in its many flavors and colors. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, Isel was available to answer our questions, give advice, and share her culture with us. We took advantage of Ileana's tasty recipes and ate breakfast and dinner every day in...

Isel is an amazing hostess! From the second we walked in she was very welcoming and so helpful. She will give you all the tips and advice you need. She is super accepting of everyone: straight, gay, families with children. Her apartment is perfect for visiting Habana Vieja; just a short walk to all major sites. She was very helpful...

We were greeted with open arms the minute we walked in! Isel is a fantastic host and Illeana a great cook. Both rooms have their own bathrooms and access to the balcony. You look down on to the colorful streets of Habana Vieja. Breakfast is available for a small fee and it is plentiful and delicious- same for dinner. The...

The highlight of our visit in la havana is the time with Isel, our mama in la habana. She spent time with us to explain us what to do and not to do. The two rooms are not too big but perfectly clean with some antiques. They both have a private small bathroom. Location is perfect! 100m from main street...

Isel was friendly and attentive and made us feel very welcome in her casa. Clean, tidy room with some lovely antiques and a balcony for some necessary people-watching. Good location. Very close to all main Havana Vieja attractions. Would definitely stay again. Thanks again Isel! love Gayle and Sam xx

The house is centrally located in Old Havana, near the tourist spots but also a bit off the main drag so you can get a feel for the town. Everything is comfortable and clean. Isel was absolutely the highlight of my trip. She has tons of energy, is very positive, and has good advice (and is always willing to help)...
