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 check into angel habana on the 19 nov 2018 without my bag. It was delay. Angel was vety kind n immediately started calling his friends in airport to help. He ask his housekerper Mila to go shopping w me to get things i need. Gave me a toothbrush n toothpaste. When we got news that bag wi arrive 21 nov he arrange for his friend Josh (sorry if name is wrong) to go w me to airport to get my bag. When we got there n could not get it angel call his friend again n eventually got me bag after abt an hour. Thanks Angel without yr help i would not ve been able to get my bag before i leave for vinales. Thanks to mila n josh too. You are one of the truly genuine crowd of people i met in cuba who help me. Yr casa is a beautiful place and very comfortable. You treat yr guest like family and wpuld do anything for us. Mila yr housekeeper is a very nice lady. Pls thank her for me. Her breakfast is very good n thanks for offering me coffee during tge times i did mot breakfast. La cathetral restaurant near yr place has nice food. Chespest mojito n pina colado in whole of cuba. Wifi hotspot is only 4 blocks away so is the hop on and hop off bus. I had a great stay. Will alwsys remember yr kindness shown to me by you n mila. If i come back will certainly stay with you. Thanks for answering all my questions even before i came. Regds yap

My college friend and I decided to put together a DIY (Do It Yourself) Cuba vacation after our alumni tour was cancelled. We picked Angel Habana noting its high TripAdvisor rating. It totally lives up to the rating!! Angel, himself, is a caring diligent person. I loved sitting with him on his veranda where you have a lovely view of the Vedado neighborhood. He generously offers great history of Cuba, and I truly enjoyed learning from him. The apartment is artistically appointed, with a penthouse feeling (top floor of building), Cuba offers tremendous value, and Angel Habana is an ideal place for value-oriented travelers who want a more intimate, home-like feeling. It's professionally run and really a great home base for Cuba travelers. The room was clean, comfortable, and included a large bathroom. We had a fridge, AC, and TV. We could charge our phones easily, and YES, smart phones work fine in CUBA... Angel Habana is a five minute walk to the Hotel Melia where you can buy internet phone cards and sit in the lobby to check in as it is an internet hotspot. Across the street is a little market where you can get bottled water and provisions. Before coming to Cuba, we had arranged for a driver / guide who picked us up everyday at Angel Habana and took us to our tours. That was perfect! Angel Habana is convenient to neighborhood eateries. We liked La Catedral, an informal restaurant 5 min walk...the first time we went, there was a mesmerizing violin-cello quartet of young women playing beautiful music. We also went to LaCocinero (5-6 min drive) which is nice, hipster restaurant next to the AMAZING "FAC" a former factory converted into a huge art studio, museum, club. Go There! We loved it. Cuba is a musical artistic paradise. Breakfast at Angel Habana was a daily treat. Fresh pineapple, guava, papaya, muffin, hot bread, coffee. On our last day, Angel surprised us with fresh mango juice. For an extra few CUCs (Cuban pesos), you can have eggs, sausage. All delicious. We hope to get back to Cuba and we would be lucky to land again at Angel Habana !!

We (my mother and I) had a brilliant stay here this month. Angel is such a wonderful and helpful host. He really looks after his guests and tells you everything you need to know about Havana! We had lovely conversations with him during the course of our stay. He gave us a map of the local area with location of shops/restaurants on it. He also gave us maps of tourist areas/sites and the routes pre-done out and numbered..they are also on his website. He puts a lot of work into this. The apartment is secure, beautiful and spacious. It is very close to the Malecon. You can see the sea from your bedroom window. The apartment is spotless...this is thanks to Milma, the housekeeper. Room and bathroom cleaned everyday. Breakfast was beautifully prepared by Milma every morning. Milma is a very warm and friendly person, we were just sorry we didn't have the language to communicate. The room had a small fridge/aircon/fan/TV. We don't speak Spanish so Angel and his brilliant English were a godsend. He confirmed our next reservation in Vinales. He told us where to go to organise our bus to Vinales. He told us how to get collective taxis into Parque Central (we felt like real Cubans!!) The list is endless. We would *highly* recommend this Casa to anyone heading to Havana!! We hope we can return one day :)

Angel Habana is located in a really beautiful part of Vedado, which is probably the coolest section of Havana. Although the apartment is on the 4th floor, it has a great vista from the balcony. And although it's a little close quarters, Angel and Milma are fantastic. Angel is a former professor and has a ton of books on contemporary and historic Cuban culture and literature. And Milma is a fantastic host and really makes you feel at home. The Hostal is just a short walk to the Malecon and some really great restaurants including the very touted La Catedral. The neighborhood is quiet but still vibrant and very accessible to Habana Vieja or Miramar.

We stayed here for two nights at the start of our trip and again at the end - we could not wait to return to this little oasis of calm for our final two nights. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, and there is a good shower. The room has both air conditioning and a fan, plus a small fridge/mini bar. Milma prepares a lovely breakfast each morning, including the best coffee we had in Cuba. Stefano, the host, is a wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable man who goes out of his way to tell his guests lots of useful information about the country. He speaks very good English, has a fantastic book collection and we very much enjoyed chatting to him over breakfasts and over a glass of red wine. We hope to return!

We had the most pleasant stay at Angels home. He welcomed us very warm and cordially and he gave us maps, directions, routes and lots of important information. Dear Milma made sure we had a good start into each day with a great breakfast. She treated us like her children. The flat is huge and the rooms very clean and comfortable. As our flight back home was around midnight Angel gave us a free late check out which was a great help for us.

I just re-read all of the prior reviews and everyone else had a similar experience to ours. Clean accommodations, warm/kind/caring host (Angel) and hostess (Milma), nice breakfasts, etc. In addition to a room you will also be getting a tour guide, historian, and friends. Being Americans and knowing no Spanish, we were a little concerned with what we might encounter, but Angel helped us every step of the way. We loved our evening chats on the balcony with Angel and our morning breakfasts with Milma. They are truly some of the kindest and most trustworthy people on earth! Angel also set us up with a friend of his to serve as a tour guide for a day in Vieja. Highly recommended as it is a crowded and confusing part of town.

Angel Habana is located near the Malecon in Vedado. It's a quiet area with good restaurants and transport is readily available to visit the sights. I often favoured walking. Angel would highlight a route for the day on my map while Milma served up a wonderful breakfast. He advised me on using collectivos, helping with my non-existent Spanish. I doubt I would have tried this without his encouragement. His restaurant recommendations were very good. Angel also organised a very reliable taxi to collect me from the airport. The taxi waited despite my plane arriving very late. I stayed in the single room with en-suite shower room. A fridge and safe were available in the room. I would love to return to Havana and would certainly try to book Angel Habana as my first choice.

Ángel and Milma are the sweetest and most perfect hosts you can ever imagine. We loved everthing about our stay: the hospitality, the clean and spacious room, the breakfast, the cosy balcony of the living room, the quiet neighborhood, ... Ángel organized the airport transfers and various taxis for us and everything worked out perfectly. He also provided us with extensive information about la Habana and the Cuban way of life, which was very helpful. We also loved his recommendations for restaurants and daily activities. Ángel is very proficient in English so nobody has to be scared of communication problems. Without doubt, this Casa is highly recommendable and we would defenitely stay here again. Thank you Ángel and Milma for making our stay in la Habana so special! Muchos saludos desde Austria, Ulli & Roli

We travelled around Cuba with our 2 small childrem for 5 weeks. We stayed 3 times in Havana and the best place it was Angel house. From right the beginning when he organised a taxi to pick us from airport, to have the TV ready for me to watch the Europe final, we felt at home and looked after. His flat is comfortable, both rooms have private bathrooms. It is very well situated in a lovely area of Havana and it is a quick "taxi colectivo" ride to the old centre, which is the funniest way to get there. We will also miss lovely Milma. Thank you again for an unforgettable stay. All the best. Susana, Lee, Lua e Sol x
