We had a great time with Aurelio and Alicia recently on our trip to Cuba. From our initial emails we knew this was going to be a great experience, so we could not recommend them more.
We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of our trip and 1 night at the end. The rooms or rather a private apt were fantastic (if you are wanting to cook, there is a kitchen with all utensils required), extremely clean and each featured a balcony which looks onto the street - an essential in Cuba.
Located in centro Habana close to the Malecon and Hotel Nacional this location is perfect to have a break from the madness that is Habana Vieja. The walk to Habana Vieja is a great way to get to know the daily happenings of the city as there are little tourists and loads of locals. If you need to book tours or exchange $$$ there is a Cadeca close by and the Havana Libre hotel is not far.
Aurelio and Alicia will help with anything you need to know and will absolutely go out of his way to ensure you have everything you need. For our arrival it was my partners birthday and Alicia and Aurelio had organised a surprise cake, flowers and few other things for a very festive reception. We thoroughly enjoyed the morning breakfasts (aside from being beyond delicious) where we would be greeted by Alicia with a big warm hug and kiss and would chat for sometimes two hours (I am fluent in Spanish)! As I mentioned it was like staying with family, we felt very comfortable and well looked after.
Don't think twice, this is a very good casa particular where you will have a real Cuban experience. You will not regret it!
