Felix and Lidia have a beautiful colonial home with a lovely patio. They welcomed us warmly. The room was big and comfortable. Our room had an ensuite, which was clean, the shower pressure was good, and there was hot water everytime.
Felix gave us a lot of tips and recommendations. Coffee was great and breakfast was made up loads of fresh fruit and home made sweet potato chips.
Unfortunately we had to cut our trip a bit short because of the coronavirus outbreak and they were very understanding and didn't charge us for the nights we didn't stay. Would stay again if we get the chance to come back to Cuba :)

We stayed at Felix & Lidia's beautiful house for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip and the last night before leaving Cuba. we had an amazing stay! the rooms were big and clean and same goes for the private bathroom in the room.
the breakfast is a typical Cuban breakfast( fruits, bread, butter, marmalade, coffee, fresh fruit juice), yet if you desire or need something particular just ask and if they can they are glad to accommodate your wishes. we also had a homemade dinner that was awesome.
Felix and Lidia turned out to be Incredible people! we enjoyed our long talks with Felix and Lidia about Cuban History, culture, general topics and recommendations. Felix booked us also the other casas for the rest of the trip in the different cities according to the dates we asked, and we were very pleased with our accommodations.
They are such welcoming people that open their home and hearts for you that at certain point Abalidia becomes your home away from home.

Thank you very much for everything!!! we will be back for sure!

Even with the reservation confirmed by e-mail a week before the trip, there was no room avaiable when we arrived. Do not trust.
Incluso con la reserva confirmada por e-mail una semana antes del viaje, no había ninguna habitación disponible cuando llegamos. No confíes.

I am just back from a 2 weeks trip in Cuba with 26 friends. Staying in more than 6 different cities and group spreaded in more than 5 locations in Havana, Abalidia was the best place among all.
As others shared Lidia and Felix make you feel at home and take care of you. The house is magnificent and some of our friends requested to come for breakfast. They were welcomed warmly and had great morning with our hosts. It is important to mention that both speak English, but also French and Italian. This is very rare to find in Cuba. There are 2 rooms available (double bed and triple bed) both equipped with spacy bathrooms.
There is colibri nesting in the garden (photo attached). This is for sure a sign that this small the house of good people in order built its own one 
Whenever I come back to Havana this will be my choice again and again!

We went to this house as it came highly recommended by some friends and we read excellent reviews of it on tripadvisor. As we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Lidia and Felix. The house is a nice colonial house in Vedado. Our room was big, although dark and a bit old, and although we had a private bathroom, this was not in the room, which meant we had to walk across the hallway, even at night, if we needed the bathroom. It was a bit uncomfortable. As we arrived, Felix made us sit for a chat and gave us some rum. He gave us a number of recommendations, such as the need to watch out for Cuban men trying to get paid or offered drinks (he called them jineteros) etc. When we eventually went to shower, we found the bathroom was not very clean (something that actually has not happened again to us in Cuba, and that the shower was cold (despite the fact that all houses claim to have hot water, most of the times we only got lukewarm water). We were too tired from the flights in order to complain, but the day after, when we again had to take a cold shower, we did complain. As it was Monday, Lidia told us she'd be able to cook her famous lobster only on a Tuesday night. So we decided to go to see the cerimony of the Canonazo at La Cabana fortress. Felix offered to come with us and we welcomed the offer, as he is very knowledgeable about Cuban history. However, when we came back in the afternoon he told us he had to work till late as he was teaching the day after, so he offered the company of Lidia's cousin, who agreed to come along although he seemed to be extremely shy. When I asked what time he'd come to pick us up, it emerged that he does not have a car, so we'd have to ride a taxi with him, pay for it, pay for his entrance fee at La Cabana, and eventually, on coming back, since we had not had dinner and we'd want to eat, offer him dinner and a drink. In exchange, he was meant to protect us. In practice, we were warned against jineteros but then one was forced upon us. We were so infuriated, we decided to tell them we were tired and left the house saying we'd go have dinner and not go to the cerimony. Instead we went, we negotiated a very good price for the taxi on the way there and back, we enjoyed the cerimony and that was all. No protection needed for sure. The day after, we tried breakfast outside the house. As the coffee was bad, when we got back home to shower we asked to have some, and also some tea. Lidia gave me the only tea she has (green tea, which I hate, and which I drank anyways as it was offered to me as it seemed rude to refuse). She claimed the tea had been actually brought to her by some Italian friend. In fact, the brand was Italian. That night we also had dinner at the house, and Lidia went above and beyond to make sure to cook a lovely lobster that did not contain any ingredients to which we may be allergic (we had warned her in advance). She was very kind indeed. We then asked Felix to call the house we were meant to stay in Santiago to confirm our arrival. Of course he had his own opinion on where we should stay, and instead of saying that the phone call was from Claudia to confirm our arrival on 6 February, he just asked whether there was a room available. The obvious answer was no. Needless to say, I did make a phone call myself from outside, I told the house in Santiago I had made a reservation, and indeed they said they were waiting for me. The best surprise was the bill. You can make sure NOTHING we had in the house was free, not even the green tea I had, for which I paid 1 CUC (yeah, you heard me!!) and which was something the owners never even paid for as they were simply left over bags from other people who stayed in the house. I am sorry, but this is not hospitality to me. I should have been told from the beginning that I was going to have to pay for that - but we learned our lesson and from then on we just asked the price of every single service. Overall, we found the house ok, the room ok although uncomfortable to have the bathroom all the way across the hall, we thought Lidia was sweet but her husband overly pushy towards us.
