The colonial building stems from the pre-revolutionary period, namely from 1923, and still emanates the old majestic spirit. Thanks to the high ceilings, spacious rooms and 4 beautiful balconies you can enjoy your stay! The apartment has 4 bedrooms, 1 office room, 2 bathrooms, 1 dining room, 1 living room, 1 kitchen and 1 laundry and storage room. You ma rent the entire apartment or individual rooms, as you wish. Besides, you are only 100 meters away from the famous Malecón boardwalk! In addition to the fresh breeze from the nearby ocean all 4 bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning.
In the central district Havana Centro life is still original and unadulterated: men play dominoes outside the front door on the street, vintage cars and bicycles offer their taxi services and women put their laundry on the balconies. There are also many restaurants in the neighborhood, music and dance schools, theaters, museums and other sightseeing attractions. You are within walking distance of the Capitolio (6 minutes’ walk), the Prado promenade with the old town Habana Vieja behind it (5 minutes) and the Central Park (Parque Central - 5 minutes), where buses bring you directly to the beaches of Santa Maria outside the city.

Reviews of this property
The apartment has a great location, about 10 minutes walk to both old Havana and new Havana(Vedado). It is old stile place, big and comfortable, with authentic Cuban neighborhood. We really liked the atmosphere in the apartment. Junior and Lolly are very pleasant and friendly people. They helped us with everything we needed, and we really enjoyed staying with them.
According to the offer (1 room, 1 bathroom) we assumed the bathroom is private but it isn't. It is actually shared between two rooms. The offer says that the rooms are lockable, but they are only lockable from the inside( if you are in the room). There is always someone of the hosts in the apartment who is watching that no one comes into your room, and the entrance door of the apartment is always locked( you get the key of that). But there is one really annoying thing about this apartment. You can run out of hot water, or worse, you can run out of any water. If that happens there is always someone you can tell it and they will fix it in few minutes, but if you are already in the shower or it is late in the night it can be a problem, especially because the bathroom is shared( you can't finish your shower, you can't flush the toilet etc).
Ende Oktober/Anfang November verbrachten wir fünf Nächte bei Loly und Junior. Wir können diese Casa Particular und die super netten Gastgeber nur empfehlen. Unser Aufenthalt war von Anfang bis Ende angenehm und wir haben uns mit den beiden toll verstanden, wobei uns unsere Spanischkenntnisse sicherlich hilfreich waren. Die Umgebung der casa ist sehr authentisch und man fühlt sich "mitten im Leben", mit allem was dazugehört! Der Malecon ist in einer Minute zu Fuß zu erreichen, was z. B. früh am Morgen, wenn man wegen Jetlag nicht mehr schlafen kann, ganz toll für einen Spaziergang ist. Anschließend einen cubanischen Kaffee auf dem Balkon der casa - sehr relaxed und entspannend! In der näheren Umgebung gibt es auch diverse Möglichkeiten essen zu gehen, und da die casa im Stadtteil Centro und nicht im sehr touristischen Vijeo ist, sind die Restaurants auch entsprechend. Wenn es irgendwann möglich sein wird, Cuba bzw. Havanna wieder zu besuchen, werden wir sicherlich wieder bei den beiden "anklopfen". Herzliche Grüße von Monika y Clemens

We were 2 couples staying in the flat. We all enjoyed our stay there. Frank was an excellent host and he looked after us very well. We also did a guided walking tour with him. Well worth the money as he is like a fountain of knowledge. The flat is in walking distance to the city center. Around the corner on the Malecon there are restaurants that serve superb lobster and fish. Try asking for green garlic sauce with it. Delicious. The blue nearby hotel sells internet cards for 2cuc/1hr. When we had some pipe problems that needed to be fixed in the flat they compensated us very well for that. We felt that they really cared for us and listened to us. The water pressure in the shower is very low..but then again that is to be expected in Havanna. It feels like you see more of the real Havanna staying in the flat rather than staying in a hotel full of tourists. We stayed 9 nights, and we would stay there again if we visit Havanna in the future.
Without doubt, this was by far the BEST private place to stay during our trip to Cuba! The apartment is huge, airy and gives a wonderful feeling of old colonial times prior to the Cuban revolution. It is very central, just 1 block from the great Malecon, and restaurants, bars and casa de la musica are very close.
Our hosts gave us a great welcoming and made us feel like family. We would not have known all the secret places we saw without their help – places we would not have found just in travel guides.
We had a very early flight back and could store our luggage until we could check in at noon.
Loly made a breakfast that was fresh, delicious and unforgettable (with really strong Cuban coffee!). Of course, Cubans have only white bread (and not full grain bread, as I like it) but that’s life. The fruits made it up.
We loved our stay in this casa and would 100% recommend it to others, in particular if you are a big group and want to stay together at a place.
Inspiring and authentic Cuban apartment with beautiful rooms and balconies, perfect location near Malecon and in walking distance to Old Havana. We felt great at this place, we were treated very well, and the Cuban breakfast which was made for us was exotic, big and tasty. Loly made us feel like kings. We can absolutely recommend this place! We will come back, for sure.
Terrific place! This was a huge old colonial style apartment for the entire group. High ceilings, relaxing living room, endless corridor, and enough rooms and bathrooms for all of us, and the best – a big balcony. So everybody could have his privacy and yet we were all like one family spending our time together.
It was marvelous to have all 7 friends together in one big place – we did not want to split to several apartments around the city, but enjoy our time together in one single location.
Also, the place is so central that we could walk from there not only across the 2 streets to the Malecon, but also to the “Calle Obispo” where Old Havana starts.
We loved sitting at night at the balcony, chat, watch people and cars passing by and have everybody around.
The hosts were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome, so that we felt like at home. We enjoyed a huge breakfast they made with freshly squeezed juices and fruits and eggs, more than we could eat.
I can highly recommend this place, it was a great choice and made our stay! When we return to Cuba, that's our first choice.
To stay in the apartment was a great experience!! Very central, very cool and very “Cuban”, as we always imagined it prior to our trip to Cuba. We had a wonderful time there, thank you for making us feel like at home, for answering all our questions, for the “secret” insider information and the amazing breakfast.
Our hosts were very kind and helpful and waited for us till the middle of the night until we arrived from the airport, and helped us getting organized until very late (with all the big group we were). This was a perfect start to our trip through Cuba. Hope to see you soon again!
Christoph was away when we stayed in his flat but shared useful information in preparation and his relatives who welcomed us were kind and helpful. The flat is large in a typical old building very near the Malecon. It can be a bit noisy in the living room but the bedrooms are quiet. The plumbing needs a bit of fixing, but generally we managed ok.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
A good place to stay if you value security. The neighboirhood is very calm and secure with a couple of big hotels and good resturants around. The house is a little old but I you don't go for the Cuban experience in a 5 star hotel
