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

Hi strongly recommend to spend few days in Trinidad, and this house is for sure the best one I found in my time around Cuba. The family is lovely, I spent much time with them. The house is located in the center of the city and the room has every comfort needed. Great experience for a honest price.

We stayed here for a couple nights and had a lovely stay. The place is nice with an amazing rooftop and in a good location. The breakfast was great! Would definitely recommend this place if you're staying in Trinidad.

One of the best casa particulares I have been in Cuba. I spent 2 nights there with my sister and a friend. Juan Carlos, Isabel and their son are lovely and very chill out. For the first time we didn’t find the host pushy as previous cuban experiences and they didn’t try to sell you everything! If you spent time... More
