This house is very beautiful. The garden is like a place of peace with the mangoes tree. Laura y Ruben are nice persons. We advise to book and to have the breakfast there. That was one of the best we had. The house is situated near the best restaurant to eat in Trinidad.

This is a great casa with a lot of charm and nicely decorated rooms( especially the upstairs room with a great view overlooking Trinidad orange roofs). The hosts are not the most friendly people I have ever met but they were never rude or impolite and always answered our never ending questions. The food they prepare is excellent. If you... More

We very much enjoyed the three days we spent at Casa Laura y Ruben. The casa is within a short walking distance of the historic centre of Trinidad so you can easily stroll into town to enjoy the sights by day, and then return in the evening to visit the many musical venues. The upper rooms in the casa have... More

We have many good things to say about this casa, but some negatives, too, I'm afraid. First, I will say that we wrote an email to the owner of the Patio casa across the road. He was full, but he asked if we wanted him to recommend a casa. Since Trinidad has hundreds of casas to choose from, we said... More

Laura y Ruben's casa in Trinidad is located close to shoppping, entertainment and buses. There is a bus that goes straight to Playa Ancon and back several times a day. The first bus leaves at 9:00 am and by catching this one you can pretty much be guaranteed a shady shelter and recling lounge chairs. The young men who work... More

We enjoyed a lovely new year at Casa Laura y Ruben. The casa is very pretty, clean and comfortable. It is situated in a side street away from the hustle and bustle of the main part of town, which we liked as it meant it was quieter and yet within a few minutes we were able to access by walking...

We had a room on the top floor (1st) and it was fine: clean, tidy, spacious, attractive. So why 2 stars? because the whole point of staying in a 'casa' is to meet 'real cubans' and experience their hospitality. Our experience in a casa 3 years ago had been as such, extremely friendly, lovely people. Here it was completely the... More

We had the room upstairs with its own balcony and windows on either side of the room. Laura was a nice lady, breakfast was good, location is good, about 4-5mins from main parts, but not noisy APART from all the roosters in the morning, but that's in all of Cuba. The whole casa has been thoughtfully extended, you can tell... More

A truly lovely place to stay in Trinidad. Clean, well equipped rooms with minibar and aircon. Our upstairs room had fabulous views of surrounding mountains. Great breakfasts and dinner if required. Helpful and friendly owners.

Casa Laura y Ruben is a very nice house, very well decorated (the owners are architects), and it has an awesome garden. It is near everything but calm at the same time. Breakfast is very good too. The only two bad things about the house: it needs a fumigation (there were thousands of ants and a cockroach in our room)... More
