“Great casa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We were intending to stay for two nights, but we liked Trinidad and this casa so much that we spent three nights there. Melvis was a wonderful hostess and her cooking was excellent. She spoke English and was helpful with everything. We had almost all of our meals there and I am sure it would beat any restaurant in Trinidad. The room was great and you could access a balcony and a rooftop terrace. Thank you for a great stay!

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in March 2013. We had a room with private terrace, a very comfortable bed (there was also a single bed in the room) an immaculately clean bathroom. The food in the Casa was so good we did not think that the local restaurants could match so ate in each evening!

We stayed at casa Colonial Carlos for 3 nights and it was the best casa during our stay in Cuba. Our room (we could change room after 2 nights which was very nice of the owner to offer us such option though all rooms are good) was beautiful and clean, the house in general was the prettiest in Cuba. There is a fantastic roof terrace where you can see the town, you can also sunbathe there on the chairs if you are too lazy to go to the beach. We had breakfast and dinner at the casa and it was for sure the best food we had in Cuba. The table was full of food, but most importantly it was really tasty as well. The owners of the casa where always there if we had any questions or requests, but the good thing was also that we had our own key to the house, so we had enough privacy as well. We would recommend this casa for everyone who likes to experience real Cuban casa and eat tasty food.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor where you can have private terrace. If you can't have a room...

This casa was by far the best place where we stayed during our trip in Cuba. The room and the private bathroom were very cosy, clean and with lots of atmosphere. The owners are very warm and friendly people. They also have a very cute and funny parrot with which you can play.... One evening we had dinner at their place. The food was the best which we had during our two weeks trip in Cuba!

This is one of those property which is worth a visit only for the kindness of people like Carlos and Melvis, who care about their guests.
We had a room with private bathroom and a private terrace, the opportunity to use a spacious terrace with a stunning view on the city. A very good location, comfort and cleanliness, a simpathic friendly parrot called "Lola".
Melvis is a very good chef: well presented tasty food, attention to details.
Carlos picked up at the bus station with a bici taxi and has been nice and ready to help us throughout our stay.

We traveled Cuba with our young family (2 adults and 4 children under the age of 8) in June 2012. We booked our accommodation through a Casa Particulare agent only a week before we arrived, so we weren't really expecting much. How surprised we were when we arrived to a beautiful colonial house in the center of Trinidad de Cuba. The place itself is very close to Parque Cespedes (the newish town square), a short walk to the internet cafe, down the road to the train station and a lovely stroll to the old part of town.

Carlos and Melvis were very welcoming and attentive to our childrens' needs. We needed two rooms and they gave us the two rooms on the second floor. Both rooms had it's own private courtyard. In addition to these courtyards, we had the use of the upstairs landing. Which came in handy when viewing the famous Trinidad de Cuba sunset.

The rooms on this floor had just newly been renovated. It was tastefully, yet traditionally decorated and the bathroom facilities were brand new (bonus!).

We loved staying here.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in the newly renovated rooms on the second floor.
