Not the prettiest street in Havana, and the building could use a little repair on the outside, but this is a truly lovely apartment with gorgeous deco detailing. Clean, spacious and comfortable.

Maria Elena is indeed one of the nicest people we have ever met. Her apartment is extremely clean, rooms are spacious, and the place has a great location in Vedado neighborhood. Maria Elena took great care of us, provided with useful information and good advice, and we really felt at home.
