We spended 4 nights at Mariselas place and had a most enjoyable staying. Location is great for staying in Vedado, the place is carefully held and Marisella is a most warm, helpful hostess. Nice breakfast, lovely staff - a big hug to Michel who helped us a lot and became our friend. We recommend it truly.
Marisela is a wonderful hostess! She arranged our transportation from the airport and was there to check us into our room. The place is colorfully and comfortably decorated with a private room (with comfortable beds) and private bath, pretty dining area with delicious breakfast (great coffee, fresh fruits, fresh juices, breads, eggs, etc ) offered for a small charge daily. Michel helped us by calling cabs for us when needed and helping with directions. All the staff was kind and helpful. Highly recommend if you are solo or a couple.
Bedroom and ensuite were well decorated and really clean as were the common areas. Quiet even with the window open all night. Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff. Returning from the best Jazz in Havana two blocks away at 1.30 am the only risk was tripping on the sidewalk! Several cafes,restaurants,bank, nearby. 1.5 km walk to Old Havana along the Malecon returning through Central Havana gives a good sample of the city . Regular buses- no hassles. Napoleon Museum in a restored mansion near the University is worth a visit.
Two girlfriends and I booked all 4 rooms of the apartment for our 5 day trip to Cuba and it was the most amazing experience. We were hosted by Marisela who made us feel like family! The apartment was quaint, clean, and charming. Every morning we were greeted with breakfast with fresh juices, fresh fruit platters, eggs, and pastries. The staff was extremely attentive and kind. Each night there was someone hired to stay at the house to open the door for us. There is air conditioning in all the rooms and a mini fridge stocked with water, soft drinks, juices (this is like a mini bar so you are charged for what is consumed). Please note that there is no internet nor wi-fi in the apartment (and most of Havana). Which was an actual great disconnect! Marisela speaks English and is the perfect host! I would recommend her apartment to anyone visiting Havana! The apartment is also in a great location-- for photos you can see on my IG: @tmm1015…
I stayed here with a group of singers, and had an excellent experience. Food was good, and they made a good effort to accommodate specific food issues. Proprietor speaks English. Very friendly people.
When in Havana, Cuba last November we stayed at Marisela de Colores located at the center of Vedado and close to El Malecon. Very safe area even late at night. The service was excellent which included breakfast every morning. Very delicious w fruits, eggs bread and coffee. You can request to have lunch or dinner at whatever time. But if you decide to go out there are many restaurants around. Also there is a lot to see close by like the University of Havana. Taxis are available close by. Marisela was very nice and very helpful to our needs. So if you go to Havana I recommend this Casa. You will enjoy it very much being close to everything.
Marisela is a warm and attentive hostess, and her staff are great. Breakfast was included in our stay, and was superb! - an interesting pastry (sort of filo with a layer of chocolate), fresh fruits, eggs and - our favorites - housemade marmalades (guava, papaya and pineapple) and fresh juices (guava and pineapple). As others have noted, you must take a cab to La Habana Vieja, but it is only about 10 CUC. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood at Marisela's, seeing how real Cubans live. And, there are three excellent restaurants nearby: El Biky, Fonda La Paila (outdoor patio with chickens and cats roaming during the day, and excellent wait staff) and Wa-woo (a bit fancier). El Biky is also upscale. Prices at all three are very reasonable. We had a pizza at Biky for 3 CUC. At La Paila I had a leg of lamb for 7 CUC. Overall, we recommend Marisela's very highly, and look forward to returning.…
Since my first trip to Cuba I had the luck to stay at Marisela’s house and every time I go back to Havana I only feel comfortable to stay in this place. I consider it not only warm and welcoming but a true, unmissable experience, like the city vibrant streets or the beautiful iconic views. The atmosphere really makes the difference: besides Marisela, whose energy and ability to always understand her hosts needs and to give the right directions and advise it’s unique, the staff working in the house is very friendly and skilled and the service they provide is impeccable. The rooms are always extremely clean and attended every day and the food served is high quality with very generous portions. Don’t miss the breakfast I truly recommend it. The four rooms are all beautifully decorated and in immaculate condition and they all have en suite bathroom, fridge and safe. The location as well is perfect, in the Vedado area. I can guarantee this place will leave you with very special memories or with the desire to come back again.…
