Great location if you like that city vibe! A quick 8 minute walk to cool places like Fabrica de Arte (sp?), an art gallery that's also a night club w/ quite a few different rooms/themes. El Concinera is like a New York open-air based restaurant located directly next door! You're also a 6 minute walk from the ocean where a few ocean front restaurants are. They're all definitely worth checking out as well, but I digress.
Raul was our driver from and to the airport, that didn't speak much English but he was very helpful and patient w/ us! The airport ride, which was a reasonable $30 CUC (please study the money exchange and how it works before traveling) was about 20 minutes. Upon arrival to the apartment the heat was SWELTERING, to the point where we didn't think we'd be able to cool it off but MAN were WE wrong! The 2 A/C units did a beautiful job at keeping us cool the entire stay...except when the power went out those 3 times... Granted 2 times were solved within about 20 minutes but there was once it was cut off from the cities activities from 7:30am-2:30pm. Still, this wasn't a huge problem for us because we were close to a wi-fi park literally a block away and also had daily activities planned. Also, Yanisi (who I assume was the cleaning lady) was PHENOMENAL! Super nice lady that also speaks very little English but has a smile that makes you feel like she understands every word! She came by twice to clean during our visit and also assisted w/ the power outages. I would request bottled water for sure in advance via Maria, we were never able to find a market, but we weren't really searching for one.
Lastly, you have to keep in mind that Havana is the city, and with major cities comes problems...wasn't the people, the people are SO nice that it's almost creepy! So...when entering the apartment, which is very secure with 2 locked doors before you get to the actual apartment door, we noticed fumigation smells...however after Raul "assassinated" the cockroach, it was the only one we saw the entire visit so I openly welcomed the fumigation smell :)
With all of that being said, everything was as described and looked exactly like the images provided. The place was GREAT, location was GREAT, cleanliness was GREAT, A/C was GREAT and the HOT WATER and WATER PRESSURE...BETTER than my own home! I'd DEFINITELY stay here again in a heartbeat!
