Isel is a hoot! We had a great time with Isel, Maria-Julia and Ileana and stayed 6 nights in total. The apartment is on the first floor in a great location in Habana Vieja. It's easily walkable to everywhere and quieter than some streets (such as Obisbo). It's a small apartment with 2 rooms for rent. We had the main...

Isel is a great host and a very lovable and funny person. She takes care of all your needs and answers all your questions - a little Spanish practice before you arrive here will do wonders as she is still improving her English. Location wise you almost can't get any closer to the action - only 2 blocks away from...

We were picked up from the airport for 30 CUC by a friend of Isel. We stayed with her for 6 or 7 nights and had a lovely time. She is extremely friendly and we felt immediately at ease. She gave us a lot of helpful tips and arranged our casas in Vinales and Trinidad (short review of those casas:...

I loved my stay at Isel and Ileana's Casa. I want to go back to stay there and to see them! The location was wonderful. I wanted to be in Old Havana within easy walking distance of everything and that was exactly what I found. The food that they served me was more than I could eat, fresh and really...

I can't imagine a better place to stay while visiting Havana. Isel's house is in the heart of it all; and Isel has such a big heart! Room: nice bed, spacious, great balcony, accessible bathroom, air conditioning, good lighting. Food: the best rice and beans in all of Cuba (I have to get the recipe), great fruit and eggs for...

Isel, Maria and Ileana are fantastic hosts for you in the center if Havana Vieja. Location is #1, two streets from the center of pedestrian tourist activity in Old Havana. Safe, helpful, friendly. If you are an independent traveller, you will appreciate the local help that Isel provides. They also provide a great big breakfast of fruits and eggs for...

"Gay, no problem. No gay, no problem." Here you will experience Cuba in a way that most tourists never do. Isel and Illeana are two of the warmest people I have ever met.

What a wonderful place to stay. We were happy and lucky to stay in this Casa. They are busy and we were able to get one glorious night in their home. The balcony is a real treat, since you can look down and watch the comings and goings of Cubanos. The breakfast service was delicious and lots of attention to...
