There are so many cases in Trinidad (have been told over 500 rooms available) but this one was a highlight. It's an old colonial building with large, clean and comfortable rooms. The food was great and staff always happy to help whenever needed. Internet is available and half the cost to what's offered in town. Great location.

Gigantic and old fashioned room! The hostess, Iris, is very cheerful and helpful. She was always ready to help us on making phone calls to our country and giving us advice concerning the Trinidad night life and restaurants. The breakfast was pretty complete and tasty. In the first night we had dinner there and it was served a big and... More

We found this casa particular through the Rough guide, in which the place was enthusiastically promoted. We couldn't agree more. Both Iris and her cousin were very warm, welcoming and honest. They even invited us to Iris's birthday. The house is clean, the rooms are spacious and the private bathroom a real plus (compared to other casas). Perhaps the only... More

We stayed for a couple of nights. The bed was comfortable and the terrace and garden areas were nice. Trinidad is a beautiful city and the casa is in a good location for exploring both during the day and at night.

The owner was super friendly and the room was huge with all the colonial furniture. We absolutely loved it here.Breakfast was very... More

It was our one and only casa experience during our 1 week stay in Cuba. So not much to benchmark against. However: - great location, just perfect to stay in this Cuban jewell that Trinidad is - we had room #2, and it was overall ok, even if the electrical installation would give a heart attack to any UK tourism...
