The stay at Casa Vivian completely saved our Cuba holiday. After having travelled around Cuba staying in ugly concrete hotels the stay at Casa Vivian was a meeting with the Cuba we had hoped to meet and had been looking for. Great service, good rooms, great and big breakfast and Vivian and Pablo are great hosts and the location -... More

We were booked in here as part of our tour of Cuba and it was by far the best place we stayed. Everything very new and fresh and clean. We stayed in the house across the small street from the main house where breakfast was served and where it was possible to have dinner. We had dinner here the three... More

Stayed a night here as part of a tour with a private company. Superb location with beautiful views over Trinidad. We recommend dining in-house - the food was spectacular and very cheap! Hosts were amazing and we recommend this establishment without hesitation. (our rooms had full air conditioning!)

My husband and I have just recently returned from a very interesting visit to Cuba. Our stay at Hostal Vivian was indeed a good one although we cut it short by one day. We were booked into Vivian's original Casa for two nights however when we arrived we saw people being put into her new, luxury Casa over the road.... More

If you are looking for something more than a few nights in Havana and some time in Varadero then I thoroughly recommend taking a trip to Santa Clara, Trinidad and Cienfuegos. Our hotel offered this as an excursion by coach and it can be done in a day though we would not recommend this – as you will spend more... More

My wife and I stayed in Hostal Vivian on our 11 day trip to Cuba. It was recommended to us by German fellow travellers and we absolutely loved it. They highlighted the high standard - way above what you would expect to find in Cuba's casas, and the amazing food. All was absolutely true. Especially the food! Our room was... More

My boy friend and I were backpacking around Cuba, we stayed in many Casas Particulares and Hostal Vivian is one of our favourite. Great location, nice clean home/room. The host Vivian is very friendly and easy going plus she is a good cook too! Pricing is just like everywhere else in Trinidad. If we ever get a chance to go... More

very nice room upstairs with a view from the small - but not too small - terrace outside. Very fine bath. Situated near the market - touristiq- and the center of the old city and plaza Meyor. They make very, very, very good food. Shrimps are just wonderful. Breakfast is very good. Service is just the best.
