After almost 3 years without going to Cuba I decided to visit Havana for a few days before going to visit my family on the East of the island, well all I have to say is that I will never stay in another place in Havana , the energy and vive of the home and hosts are unmatched, I highly recommend anyone to stay there , quiet place and yet not far from old Havana and malecón. You will totally feel at home here :)
Aptofive is an excellent option for people who want to visit Havana, Cuba. I stayed last week. The hosts are very kind, helpful all the time, they give several tips to the guests related with the change of money, where to go, places to be visited etc. The hostel is located in Nuevo Vedado, one of the most beautiful places in Havana, Cuba. The neighbourhood is quiet, nice, with a lot of amenities around: there are cafeterias, restaurants, shops, and if you want to visit the Center or Old Havana, you can take a taxi or a bus ( near the Hostel) and got there in less than 15 minutes. There' s a place I truly recommend if you book in this place and it's Fábrica de Arte Cubano: a cultural institution in which all the arts converge, the experiencie was fantastic!, Also the Metropolitan Park with different amenities, mainly for families with children. I enjoyed very much visiting Cuba, people are friendly and nice.…
They really help you with the things you need to know when coming to Cuba as a tourist, changing money, etc. Very nice people, nice pleasant neighbourhood, not far from old havana. Very close to Fabrica artes havana. I loved this neighbourhood and casa, was probably my favourite part of the trip to Cuba
I had an amazing stay at Hostal Aptofive. Patricia was so helpful sending me a message after I booked to welcome me. I was very fortunate to visit Viñales as well, something that would not have been possible without the help of Patricia and Estrella. I’ll certainly be returning again when I visit Cuba again in the future!
We slept here for one night after landing and further exploration off the island. we where picked up for a small fee at the airport and welcomed with open arms and a big smile despite waiting for bags and currency exchange. The place is in the outskirts of Havanna, but a cosy neighbourhood and a nice restaurant nereby hit the spot after a long flight. A nice bed and our own bathroom and a home cooked steady breakfast the day after. Pati and Luis really make their guest feel welcome and "at home". They even gave us a lift to the bus station, free of charge. A would highly recomend this place for a stay!
My husband and I have stayed here for 4 days when visiting Havana (first days in Cuba). Patricia and Luis made us feel at home immediately, very friendly and helpful people. At arrival at the airport they picked us up. The casa is situated in a good neighbourhood and the center of Havana can be well reached by taxi or bus. We found it very nice to have some good restaurants in the vicinity (walking distance). The rooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent. Certainly highly recommended!!
Last week I stayed in this nice apartment and I really had a good time. The owners were very polite and make me feel comfortable after muy long walks visiting the city. The location is excelent and It is a quiet zone. Recommend this place for sure!
The service quality is great , it’s in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, and also it is a service to pick you up from the airport which makes everything so much easier for tourists, so you won't get any additional headache when you will be complaining on how to reach your hotel. Communication was not a problem at all because one of the host (Patricia) speaks English very good! Definitely will recommend this place fir staying as long as the prices here are in a very acceptable Level!
noisy, poor shower (so little water its impossible to take a shower) and mattress so so soft and worn out like sleeping in a hole, poor transportation options (hard to get anywhere except by walking - but there's bad exhausts all over every street in cuba so its not ideal to do any walking). Good points is that the hosts try to give you direction of some places around the house.
We stayed at Hostel Aptofive for multiple days to explore Havana. We loved it! Patricia and Luis are wonderful people and love to tell you all about their country and the places to go in Havana. We got lots of good tips from them about where to go and what to do! Definitely visit the restaurant "La Rosa Negra" when you're there. They are also really close to the Colon cemetery (Necrópolis) which is a must see. We stayed in the family room which was very nice and clean. Patricia made us a lovely breakfast in the morning or even packed it for us when we had to leave early. When we made our reservation they also helped us out with bus tickets and a hostel in Trinidad. Luis also gave us a ride to and from the airport and the Viazul bus station. We had some lovely conversations together. I definitely recommend staying with Luis and Patricia when you plan to go to Havana. …
