Beautiful apartment in the heart of Old Havana. I almost feel bad about leaving a good review, because then it will become too popular ;) Fantastic stay! cold A/C in the bedrooms, hot water, delicious breakfast, and excellent service. Our host, Ismael, is the best. Makes the best breakfast!
All of the other review's about Clobis's place were on point. Our stay was exceptional! The location is unbeatable!!! If you are taking a taxi in from the Airport (or anywhere else for that matter), just tell them to take you to Plaza Vieja. The apartment entrance is literally inside the square (on the East side). The area is packed with places to eat and drink, and there is a lot going on (i.e. music, dancing, nightlife, etc.). That being said, we couldn't hear any noise from inside the unit (which was a welcome surprise). Side note, there is an excellent spa a couple of doors down from the entrance to the apartment (a one-hour massage was $35, which became part of our daily routine). The apartment was just as described: two bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. There is a clothes washer (no dryer), which we didn't use. There is also a hair dryer (my wife brought one b/c we were unsure). It was clean and comfortable. There was a/c in the bedrooms that works great (this was a must for us). The water pressure in the shower was not as good as we are used to, but it got the job done. I saw an earlier comment about there not being a toilet seat; however, that has obviously been addressed, as there was a toilet seat. The place was clean, nice and had a rustic charm. It is on the 4th floor, so there are quite a few steps (which was not a problem for us). Upon arriving we were greeted by Matthias, who was warm and friendly. We asked him for a few dining recommendations, and his suggestions did not disappoint. He came the next morning, prepared an amazing breakfast and cleaned the apartment (Ismael was away visiting his mother for her birthday). The next day Ismael was back, and lived up to the legend in the previous reviews! He was an exceptional host, and his breakfast was divine (not knocking Matthias - his was good too). His English was good, he was well traveled and a great conversationalist. I feel like we made a friend for life in Cuba! All in all, we were extremely pleased with our choice, and will certainly stay here again when visiting Havana. If you are questioning whether or not to book this apartment, go ahead an book it...you won't be disappointed!
Generally speaking, I don't recommend this place. The main problem is that I got electricity shocks several times when showering, and it happened again after the host asked a guy to fix it and guaranteed it was good to use. The toilet had no toilet seat, we complained, and the host said all toilets in Cuba have no toilet seats, however the second day, we saw the toilet seat installed. There was no air conditioning outside the bedroom, and basically we are not able to stay in the living room unless it's really early in the morning and late at night, or we will be sweating as if we were just playing sports in the burning sun. The breakfast was served every morning, sadly, it's not enough for 4 of us, and the some of the fruits are rotten. There are definitely good things of this place, the location is really good, and we can find plenty of restaurants and bars, and some markets, however, I don't recommend the place we stayed. The electrical shocking is a matter of life and death! Sure we can get better service, better place if we are willing to pay more. In fact, we did, after this stay. We went to a hotel with full air conditioning, and toilet seat, and no electrical shock when showering.
The apartment is in the center of old town near many historical and educational sites and museums. It was spacious and clean. Ismael was a great host and made us breakfast of amazing fruit, egg scrambles, and the best cafe in Habana. Be sure to eat at private Paladars, they are well worthy any extra cost.
