We stayed at Ari and Israel's casa for 3 nights during our recent trip to Havana. Our stay was lovely--the casa is in a great location--a 5 minute walk to Parque Central in a lively neighborhood where we felt very safe walking around at all hours as three female travelers. Our double room was basic but comfortable, equipped with a...

Thank you very much for your hospitality in our stay in Havana. We are pleased with our stay. We visited five cities in Cuba during our visit. The best breakfast we ate was Israel's. The location of the house is very central. The house was clean and the rooms were fresh. We had our own bathroom which was very important....

The location is great: walking distance from many point of interests, the street has public lighting (that is rare in Habana) and there's internet signal in front of the house ( witch is also a luxury there). The room was clean, big, with storage space and quiet. The breakfast was good, and the owners helpful. I liked it so much,...

Thank you so much for our stay Ari! You and your mother truly were incredible hosts and you gave us great recommendations as to what to see, where to go and helped organize taxis and a casa in Trinidad. The room was very clean, had hot water and was well located. We also loved your breakfast, it's the best!

A perfect place for families with great breakfasts. Ari and Israel took great care of us and were very helpful in explaining where we should focus our time in Havana. The room was very clean with hot water and in the centre of old Havana. It was very cool to be staying in a local area.

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Israel. The room was spacious and clean with good AC. Ari helped to sort out our trip onwards from Havana and organised another casa in Trinidad. She also arranged for airport pick up and drop off which were both very reliable. Breakfast was good and only 4 CUC- cheaper than anywhere else we stayed...
