The apartment has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shared living room, a kitchen, a dining room, a terrace, a Carpoche and a backyard. Two of the three bedrooms are next one to the other, they are ideal for couples with children or for friends who want stay in the same space, these rooms share a big bathroom. The third room has a privte bathroom and a terrace having communication with the Carpoche and outside too. Two of the bedrooms are double and the other one has two independent, personal beds. The three bedrooms are well equiped with fan and airconditioner. The apartment is provided by the main facilities the guest needs: hot and cold water 24 hrs in the bathrooms, kitchen and backyard, 110 and 220 V energy service distributed all over the house and gas service 24 hrs. There is a TV set in the living room, and there are tv sets in two of the rooms too, a fridge in one of the rooms and another one in the kitchen. In the kitchen you can also find a gas cook with oven, a microwave, a water heater, a blender and the rest of the things of a well equiped kitchen. There is a 4kg wash machine in the backyard. The apartment is located in a nice area, surrounded by woods and trees, it is ideal for people who love safety and quietness and prefer to be far from noisy places. You can find 26th Avenue just 100 meters, and 23rd Ave and Zapata Ave are very near too, just few blocks. You can easily move to Vedado, Miramar and Old Havana from these streets by local buses, by particular and domestic taxis and by using the Bus Tour. Almendares River is very near and you can enjoy visiting the Metropolitan Park located under the bridge that joins Nuevo Vedado to Playa Municipality. In our neighboourhood you can visit the Zoo, The Colon Cemetery, that is a jewel of our Architecture and The Revolution Square. Very important aspects to be taking into account if you decide to visit us is that Via Azul Bus station is just 5 min from our apartment to move to other provinces with touristic attractions, and Jose Marti Airport is just 15 min from our flat.

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.

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 :)

Pedro is a great guy!, This young architect has been visiting our Hostel for some years. A nice and talkative guest, always in love with cubans traditions, the food, the culture. Everytime he stays home, is like having a member of our family with us. It's a pleasure to share experiences with him.

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!

We are very pleased to receive this opinion!!. For us, It's a pleasure to help our guests. When we pick our guests up, it's important to have this first contact because they usually ask general questions about the trip they have planned, about changing money at the Airport, sometimes they need suggestions for going to one place to another and some tips because they are facing new people, new culture and that's the moment we play our role. We appreciate that these nice persons took into account the fact that we dropped them off at Vía Azul Bus Station for free, this is part of our job and we felt happy. We enjoyed chatting with them, it was pitty they stayed just one night.

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!!

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!

We spent lovely moments with Vladislavd!. He wanted to know about cuban history and about cuban people. He visited some of the tourist destinations and on his way back we shared experiences. A nice guy we will always remember. I hope he can come back and stay at Aptofive.

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.

I have to say I dont agree with this review about us.I feel sorry ánd upset about this because people are free to give opinions but usually talk first to the owners, ( they didnt complain about anything )and the most importan thing of all : identify themselves. This is a particular house not a five star hotel. We have all the conditions needed for renting a house. They mentioned the neighborhood was noisy, we live in Havana City, our neighborhood is quiet and very safe but our house is not isolated, the car transit exits. I dont know what they would say if they would stay in Old Havana, there you find noisy neighborhood! Second aspect:The water comes from gravity(in the case of the poor water from the shower they said), we have had a lot of guests in our house and they have never complained about it. Referring the quality of the matress, we ask ourselves,why didnt they anthing about it?, we could change it but again I can say: first time a guest complains about this matter.Another fact: transportation. It's easy to move from our hostel to the Centre and to old Havana. There are several options: bust tour, old cars working as taxis( only cost 1 cuc from Nuevo Vedado to Old Havana), local Buses( very cheap way for travelling 0.40 cents of a cup). You can even take local buses 100 mts from our place to other destinations) and most of the guests I receive, like a lot to walk from.the Malecon to the Center, enjoying the view of the sea. I guess they brought a lot of luggages and very big, so It's very difficult to travel with this situation. We usually tell our guests to keep their big luggages at home with no charge if they want to do that when they travelling to other provinces. We' re responsibles and we' ve had no even one problem with any guest. We even have a car. We offer the service of transfer to any destination if the guest dont want to walk so we dont understand the intention of this review. We are opened to suggestions because improving our business is the most important thing for us. We are sorry this people dont enjoy their staying and still dont know the general features of a particular 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.
