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.

What an amazingly beautiful place to stay. It was exactly what my family and I were looking for. Being right in the center, walking distance to the water and to the center. Great advise on local restaurants. A calm haven in the middle of one of the greatest cities in the world. We certainly hope to return one day!

Puertas Azules is a dream— and for a brief moment in September, we were lucky enough to call this gorgeous space a home! Perfectly situated in Havana, Puertas Azules is fully furnished with AC, the comfiest beds and a lovely bathroom. With its classic architecture preserved, the space is ideal for a trip, however long or short, to Cuba’s gorgeous capital city. As beautiful as the space is, it could not compete with the grace, hospitality and love of our incredible hosts Maidy and Bárbara. Committed to ensuring our experience was rich, real and joyous, both went above and beyond. From the tastiest breakfasts to start the day, to being available to help us plan our day trips at any time, Maidy and Bárbara are the reason we will all be returning soon!! If you’re traveling to Havana, make sure you stay here— there is no way you will regret it!

Puertas Azules is absolutely terrific. The hostesses, Maidy and Baby are the kindest and most considerate and interesting people that you could hope for. The rooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds, air conditioning and a great bathroom. The location is perfect; it's in old Havana but not in the touristy part. Therefore you can really see daily life in the most beautiful part of the city without all of the hassles of the touristed sections. Maidy and Baby did a beautiful job restoring this apartment which has an amazing amount of charm and beautiful fixtures. They also serve a delicious breakfast and are available to help out with anything that you might need. I absolutely loved staying there and the price was extremely reasonable. I would recommend this place to anyone without the slightest hesitation (with apologies for writing this in English as my Spanish is not up to the task).

Maidy and Barbara were the most gracious, loving, and trust worthy hosts I have ever met in my life. Their home was so beautiful and welcoming and I would recommend this to anybody and everybody I know. I had never been to Cuba, and did not know what to expect until I ended up experiencing the most amazing trip of my life. Myself and the three other people I stayed with have made forever friends with these two wonderful women and are anxiously awaiting to return to lovely Havana. -Nina, Li, Amie, Tim

If you want to get a feel for real Havana, this is the place to stay. The home is very comfortable and better than the pictures. My husband and I stayed here with our 16 year old. You can walk everywhere and enjoy the life and sounds of the city while being a little ways away from the tourist spots. The main reason I chose this place was the reviews about Barbara and Maidy. They are incredible and made our trip. They remind me of favorite cousins. We spoke to them so much about life in Cuba, how things work, changes, advice, etc. They are so much more than hosts. They were helpful every step of the way, even when I had to see a doctor. The breakfasts we had there were delicious (too much food) and so much effort was put into them. We are so happy we stayed where we did. We love Barbara and Maidy and Puertas Azules and would highly recommend.

Bárbara & Maidy were amazing hosts! They gave us lots of great information and a map to the local area of old Havana. The location is excellent for walking everywhere. Their home is lovely, and the breakfasts were very nice. We would definitely book here again on our next trip. They went above and beyond to be helpful for our group.

Maidy and Babi are the best hosts! As soon as I got there they explained everything that I needed to get around the house, the neighborhood, and La Habana in general, and were always willing to help with whatever questions I had, regarding food, places to visit, how to go there, etc. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. Also, they helped me organize the rest of my trip to other cities of Cuba, arranging lodging and transport. Not to mention that they were super friendly and were always willing to chat about life in Cuba and its cultural history, both old and recent. We became very good friends!
