Casa Lachi y Yeni

My review: En febrero de 2014, del 6 al 21, estuve de vacaciones en Cuba. El viaje fue maravilloso en todos los sentidos, salvo por el problema que tuvimos en el alojamiento (casa de familia) de La Habana, el cual reservamos vía internet desde octubre de 2013. Estuvimos alojados en dicho lugar los días miércoles 18 y jueves 19, y salimos el viernes 20 al encontrar una rata en el baño.

Paso a relatar la experiencia:
1. Nunca nos pidieron nuestros pasaportes para registrarnos. Cuando preguntábamos al respecto nos decían que la dueña, Yeni, “había salido”. Al retirarnos tampoco nos dieron el recibo respectivo. No obstante, cuento con todos los correos electrónicos que confirman la reserva.
2. La habitación (en la planta baja) ni el baño no tenían NINGUNA VENTILACIÓN. La única ventana de la habitación daba a un pasillo interno de la casa, por lo que era imposible abrirla. El olor a humedad era insoportable.
3. El baño no tenía ducha (o regadera) sino sólo la manguerita manual. Evidentemente, la ducha se había roto y nunca la arreglaron. Nunca nos dijeron algo al respecto, era evidente que ya lo habían dejado así nomás.
4. No limpiaban la habitación.
5. Había gente de la casa que dormía en un sofá en el comedor, haciendo bastante incómoda la entrada cuando se volvía tarde de noche.

6. En internet tienen propaganda engañosa, ver foto ( con la leyenda “Vista al Morro desde el apartamento”. En la realidad, el apartamento (o la casa) NO tiene esa vista, para ver el mar hay que subir a una sucia azotea que se usa como tendedero de ropas y bodega de cosas arrumbadas, y que no está acondicionada como para que el cliente disfrute de la vista.
7. La “cereza del pastel” fue encontrar una rata (viva) en el baño, de la que adjunto foto. Esto ya fue el colmo y decidimos retirarnos, abonando las dos noches que dormimos ahí, así como los desayunos que tomamos. Ni siquiera nos pidieron disculpas. Antes de terminar nuestra estancia en Cuba, hicimos esta misma denuncia a través de una encuesta del Ministerio de Turismo, que respondimos en una caseta del mismo en la calle Obispo.

Casa Lachi y Yeni

My review: We were excited about our stay at Lachi y Yeni's - it looked great online. Unfortunately, we were only there for about 2 minutes. Lachi apologetically told us that the previous guests had just decided to extend their stay for a month. I suppose that's a pretty good verdict on Lachi and Yeni's casa! While it was a bit disappointing, I understand it happens that way a lot and the reasons why. Anyway, Lachi and Yeni referred us to their next-door neighbour at no. 63. All good, we thought. But no.

Do not stay at 63 if Lachi and Yeni are full. Yes, they are also licenced, but it's a bit of a mystery to me how, as neither of the main requirements for renting to tourists (air-conditioning, hot water shower) were met. We showered out of a bucket between the two of us. I'm used to camping, so it was no big deal, but it was disappointing they still insisted on charging us the standard 30 CUC for the night. The room smelled like petrol and had no window. The guava batido served with breakfast was off. At no stage did they engage in conversation in either language, or even tell us their names. We were treated like an income source, pure and simple.

In short, easily the worst casa I've ever stayed in. We upped sticks to Vedado the next day.

My review:

While walking along the sea front Malecon I came across Lachi and Yeni's house. They have a sign noting they are a licensed Casa particular. I knocked on the door and Yeni greeted me, speaking good English and showed me the two rooms she rented out. They were both immaculacy clean with on suites and essential air conditioning.
As I was not happy with the apartment I was staying in I reserved a room with Yeni and moved there two days later. I had a fabulous time at my new accommodation and after a few days felt like part of the family. Yeni would cook breakfast and dinner if required and her black beans were the best I had in Havana.
It's just a short walk to Havana Vieja, the Revolution Museum, etc and there is a good choice of restaurants near too. Or you can just sit on the sea wall and watch the local fisherman with a cold beer.
I can thoroughly recommended this busy house if you want to immerse your self in authentic Cuban life.
I have made new friends in Havana and am sure you will too.
