Our stay at Roberto's casa was very enjoyable! First Roberto was very kind to meet us at the airport to guide us to the money exchange and to accompany us in our taxi ride where he pointed out landmarks as we rode to the house. A mini tour as soon as we arrived! The house is very nicely decorated and spotless. Our bedroom had a beautiful modern, private bath, a mini fridge, and excellent AC which was greatly appreciated in the August heat. We met Lili, his assistant, who was so warm and cheery. She doesn't speak much English but that doesn't stop her from being engaging and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and Lili makes it with love (5 CUC).
Roberto was very helpful, guiding us and suggesting things to see and do. He found himself with a free day and joined us for a walk in the city and we learned so much. We came to Havana for a musical experience and found out Roberto is a musician as well so we had wonderful conversation about Cuban music and more.
The house is located with easy access to the bank to exchange currency (about 2-3 blocks). There is no wifi in the house but near the bank is the kiosk to purchase wifi cards where you can connect along that block. The next block over is the Malecón. Blocks to Hotel Nacional, a small market for souvenirs, a popular jazz club (La Zorra y el Cuervo). Robert recommended Jazz Café where we saw an amazing show, had great seats and AC!!!
We highly recommend a stay with Roberto and Lili.
