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.

I spend 4 days in Tmaras' house la casa de Obrapía, it is located in the very center area of the old Havana city, very convenient to all the sites. The house is clean, cozy, and even has a cute balcony. I enjoyed the local lifestyle living there!!! Tamara gave many many useful bits of help! She sent an old car for picking up at the airport, and I tried 6 restaurants recommended by her, they are incredibly tasty! Really appreciated these unforgettable experience :)

Tamara's appartment was just perfect ( we were two couples) , good location, good style, clean and tidy, everything worked well. Nearby to main Havanas attraction. On top of it Tamara helped us to organize all needed for first 3 days in Havana and even more importantly for whole stay in Cuba - we came only with rough planing - Tamara helped us to choose good locations, arrange taxis and good quality accomodation for next two weeks. It realy helped us to enjoy entire holidays. I can only recommend!!! Thanks a lot Tamara and we hope to see you soon :-)

Friends and I stayed this past week at Tamara & Chen's Mi Casita de Obrapia property in Old Havana and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment, the kindness and attention of Tamara and her team, and our time getting to know the people and sites of Cuba. The property is charming and perfectly situated in the historic district just a few blocks from the Capitol and the Gran Teatro de la Habana, making it easy to visit all the sites of Old Havana or take transportation to other parts of the city or island. The furnishings and decor are all well appointed and we had everything we could possibly need for our stay. Tamara was an absolute gem and provided us with excellent recommendations for restaurants as well as excursions and tours during our star. Just below and next door to the apartment there is a charming place called Bar de Luca which is open from 8:00am to 1:00am each day and that is perfect for coffee/breakfast in the morning or food and drinks throughout the rest of the day. We will always think fondly of our time in Havana and look forward to returning in the future to bring much needed support to the Cuban people and economy!

When we first stumbled upon this flat on AirBnB, it seemed almost too good to be true. There must be a catch! But everything was as perfect as it seemed online. Tamara is the most thoughtful, gracious host. She provided us with all the information we needed and showed us around. The flat is just perfect! Kitchen is compact and contains everything one needs. The bed is very comfortable, bathroom and terrace are excellent. Location is incredible. And it is very very clean!!! We had a 5 Star Standard from Europe in Cuba at Tamaras apartement :) Tamara had excellent restaurant recommendations and was of great help. She organized all the taxis that we can come from one place to the other place in Cuba. Tamara went way beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable she is very professional! Thanks Tamara and Casa Tamara&Chen at mi Casita de Obrapia for a wonderful stay in Cuba!

I come again to Havana and of course I came again to Tamara´s house (now a new house). I simple would like to share that all the reviews you see here from other people are all true! The house is nice and new and Tamara is 5 stars (because there is no more than 5 stars)!!! I was here 5 year ago and this year again and my feeling when I stay here this time was that I was visiting a great friend I have met 5 years ago. As usual Tamara took care of everything I needed! if you go to Havana and need to stay in a house, do not hesitate a second! Trust me!

We stayed at Tamara’s San Juan de Dios apartment in Havana Vieja for 4 weeks. The apartment is centrally located within easy walking distance of all places of interest within the historic centre and Centro Havana. We found excellent restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the apartment. It is located in a very lively part of old town facing the street. On the ground level is a living/dining/kitchen area at the front with a second bedroom and a bathroom at the rear. Upstairs is the main bedroom with an en suite bathroom. The apartment is kept immaculately clean with good quality linen and towels provided. We had a very nice cleaner, Osmel, who did a full clean every 3 days. Tamara as our host was amazing. She was very helpful in responding to all our inquiries. Any places we wanted to go to outside of Havana Vieja, Tamara organised a driver. We also were very grateful to her for personally taking us to a number of places which we otherwise wouldn’t have seen. Given the difficulty of shopping – ie, limited choice at supermarkets and the need to deal with the local currency to buy fruit and vegetables – Tamara organised for Nana to come and provide breakfast each morning at the apartment for 5.50 pp. The breakfast was usually fruit salad accompanied by a beautiful freshly made fruit smoothie, followed by an omelette and/or toasted ham and cheese sandwich and coffee. This was more than enough to last us until an early dinner at one of the local restaurants. Nana was great company and almost taught us Spanish during our stay! Over the years we’ve booked many holiday rentals in various countries and we have never enjoyed the level of support and friendship which we received from Tamara. We had a wonderful experience at Tamara’s apartment and would highly recommend it to fellow travellers.

We stayed at Tamara’s new casa, and it’s fantastic absolutely amazing. Tamara is the best host ever super friendly, super great at helping you with restaurants, wifi you name it, she is brilliant. The casa itself is beautiful, great rooms, beds, shower, balcony. It’s amazing, I can’t stress enough how great it is, location everything stop searching and book this place! Nana who comes to cook breakfast is such a gem and is super lovely she does not speak English which is the best and is so fun to communicate with, she cooks a great breakfast as is really lovely. I still miss Nana now, but will be making one of the cocktails she taught me how to make. The whole experience of staying there was perfect.

Tamara's home is wonderful and offered all comforts we needed at the end of our Cuban trip. It is also very well located. Tamara was very precise and available. The house doesn't offer breakfast, but there is an exquisite bar they suggested us with amazing sandwiches. We hope to come back soon!

Wow. Our stay and time in Havana with Tamara and in her beautiful casa was perfect. My friend and I stayed in Tamara’s home Casa de Obrapia, which is newly remodeled, clean, comfortable, and in a great central Old Havana location. I highly recommend staying here, it is really a beautiful home! We corresponded with Tamara ahead of our trip, and she took care of EVERYTHING for us. Airport transfers, logging, maps, internet cards, a local phone, private tours, daily transportation with extremely friendly and reliable drivers ( shout out to Andres and Didie, the best drivers ever) and daily breakfast provided by Nana, who is so sweet, attentive and has a heart of gold. Nana’s morning bocadillos and Cuban coffee are the best way to start the day! We had a private tour of Havana with Ricky, who knows more information about everything in Havana than you would ever think possible! Excellent tour guide. We also took a day trip to Viñales, which is a beautiful small town out in the country with an amazing cave, rock formations, fresh air, and a great little town. We even had private salsa lessons, which was so much fun! Tamara herself is extremely helpful and a great resource, but also she is a genuinely warm, kind, and fun person. There were a few times she spent time with us on tours, made us dinner at her home, and we even saw a local band performance at Fabrica del Arte (also highly recommend). You won’t be disappointed. I hope to return to Cuba for longer next time, and Tamara will be the first person I contact and she will be my first recommendation to anyone I know of who would like to go to Cuba. Also, to any American citizen who is nervous about visiting Cuba, don’t be. We had zero issues and everyone was extremely friendly. We felt very safe all the time! Thank you so much for everything Tamara! Besitos y abrazos muy fuertes! Liz

It is difficult for me to start off with how unbelievable Tamara made my time in Cuba. Her absolute commitment to her clients is unlike anything I've ever experienced & for that, it was probably my most favorite trip to date. Not only did we have a fabulous place to stay with a very central location, Tamara set up everything for us from restaurants to events and had a Cuban phone for us to call her or anyone in case we had any questions and always made us feel so comfortable. It is very apparent that she loves what she does & will greet her guests with open arms to a beautiful country - a must stay!!!
