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.

We stayed in a twin room off the courtyard and had a pleasant stay. The hosts are very friendly, the meal for dinner was fantastic! The beds were very hard, but we slept ok anyway. Very close to the centre of Trinidad and markets etc The view from the terrace is beautiful, and it's a great place to sit and... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 4 days on our honeymoon. Everyone that works here is very friendly and helpful and make you feel at home. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the food was AMAZING! I don't think we ate as well as when we stayed here and ended up eating here each night of our... More

I stayed here with my two friends.They had a double room in the courtyard area and I had a single room on the roof area. My room was ideal for me - I was very comfortable and had a fridge and my own bathroom. Beautiful views from the rooftop terrace and a lovely home-cooked meal one of our nights stay.... More

Hostal Vivian is conveniently located very close to the centre of Trinidad. It is run by very friendly hosts, who are always happy to help. The rooms were quite spacious and the beds average, but the bathrooms are a little small and the air conditioning is rather noisy. The breakfast was ok, but the dinner was sensational and very good... More

Wonderful Architechture. Amazing house. Very convenient location with short walk to squares etc. Pity the beds aren't more comfortable. Very hard & felt like springs poking into you. Didn't fit with this quality house. Nice people. Markets just along the road a few metres. Very good English guide available - Guillermo. Didn't find beds a problem in Cuba generally over... More

We stayed at Hostal Vivian y Pablo for 4 nights and found the staff to be very nice, the place clean and in a nice location (once you got your bearings). The value for money for food if you eat there is great because the meals are huge. A fruit plate, salad plate, massive main and dessert for dinner is... More

This is a lovely casa in a perfect location. The food - both breakfast and dinner was truly outstanding and the hosts could not have been more welcoming. The only downside was the beds and pillows. Very very uncomfortable hard and lumpy even by Cuban standards.
