Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wauw ! What a great stay this was. The casa was in a great location, very clean rooms with airco and refridgerator. We were big fan of Maria, our host. She really was the best, spoiled us with great service, super breakfast and the biggest hospitality. We really love this woman. She took time to tell us all about Cuba, giving tips, she listened to our stories. Really recommended.

Rodney & Laura's family were incredibly communicative, kind and hospitable! They had great recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area, provided complimentary coffee and safe drinking water for us (there was a bottled water shortage during our visit), and helped arrange our accommodations and collective taxi in Cienfuegos as well as private taxi rides to/from the airport. You can absolutely trust this family to take great care of you during your stay in Havana! LOCATION: The house was perfectly situated for us; other travelers we met were envious of this AirBnb's central location. From the house, it's a short 4 minute walk to Plaza Vieja to start exploring, shopping or dining in the heart of Habana Vieja, or an 8 minute walk to the streets surrounding the National Capitol Building/Parque Central, where you can easily hail a taxi cab or hire a classic car to visit other attractions. And coincidentally, even though we ate in many different neighborhoods, our favorite paladares and meals in Havana were within a 10 minute walk of the house-- Doña Eutimia, O'Reilly 304, La Pirata and Mojito Mojito are all serving amazing food nearby. AMENITIES: The room itself was very comfortable for the two of us. The A/C unit and fan both worked perfectly, the shower had warm water at a good pressure, and the small fridge was convenient to have for water and leftovers. The safe and locks on the doors were appreciated for added security. Laura and Rodney's family clearly prioritizes the comfort and safety of guests, and we enjoyed peace of mind staying here. As the description mentions, there is no WiFi at the house currently, but I followed their recommendation to get a tourist SIM card ($30 USD to buy ahead of time from Cubacel and pick up at the airport), and found that we didn't need WiFi at any point during our week in Cuba. The 6GB of data on the tourist SIM card was more than enough; I was readily able to voice call family in the U.S. via social media apps and browse the web for travel information. Don't limit your accommodation options based on WiFi, we had a lot more flexibility with the tourist SIM card because we didn't need to plan our day around stops at WiFi access points, and we could quickly communicate with our drivers & hosts via call/text. LANGUAGE: I communicated primarily with Rodney and Maria at the house, who both speak excellent English. If your Spanish (like mine) isn't great, they can help with negotiating collective taxi rates and navigating your stay in Cuba. Don't hesitate to book this room for your stay in Havana, Laura & Rodney's home is very comfortable and their family is lovely!

March 2020 trip. You can expect a great time in an outstanding location, with some of the most friendly and helpful people hosts that you will ever meet. Thoroughly enjoyed my time in Havana - made all the better with the great breakfasts, and the sightseeing ideas from fantastic hosts Laura and Rodney.

Our stay with Laura and Rodney couldn’t have been better. The location is amazing, just a short walk from Plaza Vieja (the Main square in the old town) and the apartment itself was lovely with everything you could need for a stay here. Laura and Rodney were the perfect hosts, recommending places to go and helping us book excursions and transport whenever we needed it. We ended up returning to the apartment during the Covid-19 pandemic as our hotels had cancelled on us. They really went above beyond with keeping us updated on the latest news and guidelines and getting us food and cooking for us when tourists were no longer allowed out on the streets in Cuba. They even helped us arrange a hotel when new legislation meant we could no longer stay with them. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Havana!

Staying with Laura and Rodney felt like coming home. They are passionate about their accommodation and you see the effort they put in it. They treated us like family. They always have been there for us with every question and request, even when we have been to other cities in Cuba, we stayed in touch and she answered every question. Laura speaks perfectly good english. She helped us planning our trip through Cuba, we followed and loved all her recommendations she gave us. She really knows what she is talking about. FOOD: Breakfast was very good with fresh fruits, Selfmade juice, marmelade, butter, cheese, sausage, eggs (however you like them: scrambled, omelette, cooked, with other ingredients) bread, tea, coffee, all you can eat and drink. One time she cooked typical Cuban food for us, we loved it! HOUSE: The whole house was always clean. The rooms are small (due to the district, cause all the rooms in Old Havana are small) but cozy, you could see love in every detail. The house is in a local position. Walking distance to many sights, restaurants... We will come back for sure and can recommend to stay with this lovely couple!

Everyone visiting Havana should stay with Laura and Rodney. They are the cutest couple and best hosts you could ask for. The rooms are clean and the casa is perfectly located in old Havana. Laura speaks perfect English and gives the best advices in what you should or shouldn’t do. She also helps you to plan your time im Cuba. During the Covid-19 pandemic Laura and Rodney did their best to help all their guests and provided us with the latest news and guidelines. When tourists weren’t allowed on the streets anymore they got us food and Laura even cooked for us. We would always come back. This casa feels like coming home. Thank you so so much! ❤️

Laura and Rodney are excellent hosts and one immediately feels good and comfortable in their home. Getting your suitcases hauled up to the room is already a little fun adventure. The staircases are plenty and steep as in most Cuban homes, but once you are up there you feel very comfortable in a tastefully decorated home. We had a nice and quiet room, rather spacious with a private bath room. The rooms to the street are more ‘lively’ as Cubans live outside and some never seem to go to bed! The breakfast is plentiful and tasty. The place is in walking distance to La Habana vieja; everything can be reached comfortably by foot. Laura likes to exchange with the guest, takes her time and has a lot of valuable information and hints to share. We would not hesitate to go back to their beautiful home!
