Absolutely the best, big house of 3 floor, several rooms, beautiful patio and 3 level terrace. A beautiful yellow colonial house, just few steps walking from Trinidad main place. Owners very helpful, service very good, and abundant breakfast! We had the room at first floor (recommend this one), having breakfast on the terrace in front. one stair up a beautiful... More

Casa Juan Carlos Orbea y La China was a great venue for the few days we spent in Trinidad. The house is very conveniently located, being a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of the old town and a 10 minute bicitaxi ($3-4) from the Viazul bus station. The room was good – powerful fan and new air-conditioning, a sizeable... More

Stayed two nights with Juan Carlos & his wife in a well finished Casa Paticulares. The breakfasts were delightful and the family so helpful. Centrally located for the old town and many paladares in close proximity. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

In easy walking distance to the wonders of Trinidad, this typical Casa Particular is hosted by the charming Juan Carlos and his equally delightful wife. The room was well appointed, the meal both delicious and substantial and the view over the town from the roof terrace in the morning was spectacular. If you are in Trinidad (and if you are... More

We spent 4 nights with Juan Carlos and his family. There was a slight confusion as we were double booked, but Juan Carlos helped us sort it out with the other casa. Our impeccably clean room was on the second floor, overlooking the courtyard. The meals were delicious and plentiful, and the people warm and generous. The tiered terraces were... More

We have spent four days in this beautiful colonial home. Very central located and yet far from the noise of the main plaza. Our hosts - Juan Carlos and his wife China - have been warm and welcoming. They have arranged dance classes for us, taxi drivers, bicycles, everything we asked for. The room was clean and the breakfast delicious.... More

We were booked to stay at this Casa. I chose it because of the positive reviews and the fact it was a colonial building. When we arrived they said that the bathroom was broken and wanted us to stay at the Casa of a "close friend". The other Casa was pretty bad and we refused to stay there. So we... More

There are many colonial homes to stay in in Trinidad and this is one of the best. Juan Carlos Orbea and his family are very gracious hosts. The home is absolutely lovely. It is in a great location. Within easy walking distance to all the major sites, parks and the bus depot. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. There is... More

Amazing little casa in Trinidad. We didn't stay with Juan Carlos, but just down the road. The room was clean with air con, fan and hot water. Amazing breakfast and best prawns in Cuba for dinner! We would go back in a second!

If you want beauty, cleanliness and friendliness, stay at Casa Juan Carlos Orbea y La China. Juan Carlos and La China could not have made our stay any more delightful. Not only was the house gorgeous, filled with pride of ownership and could pass a Swiss Maid's cleanliness inspection but they were able to accommodate our traveling companion who was... More
