This is a really nice casa in Trinidad with air conditioning (very appreciable during Cuba's hot summers!). It is centrally located and this casa displays the same comfort level (incl. internet) as any other hotel in Trinidad for only 1/5 of the price (30 CUC per night). This casa has an amazing terrace with a view all over Trinidad. This... More

This is no doubt a hostel where you really get a five star treatment. The rooms are big, with individual bathrooms, immaculately clean. They have 3 rooms, which is quite uncommon in trinidad. We had a terrace with a view of whole trinidad and even chairs for sun bathing on the rooftop. The service is excellent, and the food is... More

Many thanks you for your lovely warmth, friendliness, food and help!! My friend and I stayed only one night but it was enough to get to know this wonderful family and their super beautiful Casa particular. It is located within walking distance of Casa de la Musica, which should not be missed!

Every good thing that others have said on this page about Emelio, Fatima and their wonderful Hostal El Chef is 100% true. This is the best 'casa particular' in Cuba, no question about it. My wife and I and another couple from Perth in Western Australia emailed Emilio in November 2012 asking about accomodation in late March 2013. Emilio came... More

Hostal El Chef is the best place in the whole of Cuba. I was in a lot of hotels and nowhere I felt like in this house. It's located 5 minutes to the main place (casa de la musica). Here, you'll feel like in a 5-star hotel, but also in a very family atmosphere. Emilio and his wife Fatima care... More

We stayed 6 nights and experienced a warm hospitality. Nice and clean rooms and the food is something really extra. Emilio is a true chef. Ask for his roasted pork. It's delicious. An extra advantage: The Cubanacan bus to and fro Havanna stops just a block away.

We stayed two nights with my husband in this B&B while in our honeymoon in June 2012. The house is big, the owner and his family leave on the ground floor. The first floor (top floor) is used for the B&B's rental bedrooms. Our bedroom was big enough, clean and in en-suite. One door was opening to a lovely terrace... More
