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.

We rented three clean and nice rooms in this very central apartment in Old Havana. The only minus was very loud aircon, and the rooms our two sons had above the kitchen area was very small and a bit "claustrophobic" Hosts vere great and helpful, breakfast was good and the coffe best on the entire trip.

We booked three nights at Casa El Mecanico at the beginning of our Cuban adventure. Yaimara was welcoming and the room we stayed in was small, but spotlessly clean. We felt a little disappointed that the window in our room opened onto a ventilation shaft; there was no view, only a glimpse of the sky several stories above. We were led to believe that we would have our own balcony with a view. However, the casa is adjacent to the wifi spot of Plaza Del Cristo in Old Havana, so when you leave the building you are immediately immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of one of the last areas of Havana Vieja yet to be refurbished; if you want to experience the 'warts and all' reality of life in Havana before it starts to resemble Panama City's Casco Viejo, then Casa El Mecanico is the place to go.

If you are looking for a nice, clean, central and quiet place to stay in the old Havana, Miguel’s house is the place to be. Miguel is an excellent host, always ready to help and make you feel confortable and his beautiful family is the same; they sure will make you feel like part of their family. Don’t think twice, go to Miguel’s house and you won’t regret it.

We loved being hosted by Miguel and his family. Although we stayed in the separate apartment we felt like part of the family. Miguel goes out of his way to help you with anything - from taxi service, recommendations, general tips. While the family's English is not fluent they try their best and between a little Spanish and a little English everything works fine. More is said through their warm hearts and eyes. Breakfast is good and fairly flexible with times. Rooms are clean, good hot water and good water pressure (the best we had in Cuba). While we were there some German people decided the house wasn't for them and left after staying for two nights and not paying anything!!! This broke my heart to see such lovely people treated in this way and that European people could leave without paying anything. Wish we could have done more to help them - did give some extra money for the later check out we had to try and give them some return on the loss to their business from the Germany ladies. Would recommend this house to anyone looking for somewhere clean, central, warm and homely to stay. Miguel, wish you all the best for the future.

I stayed at Miguel's in January of this year and he and his family were a pleasure to stay with. Miguel's please is right in the middle old Havana, walking distance to all the important sites he even provided a walking map with all the spots to see. Miguel also has a car and was very accommodating as we scheduled time with him to take us to various places including santa maria beach right outside Havana which was a nice getaway from the city. would stay with Miguel again.
