“Casa dulce casa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Ricardo and Dianelys are the main reason we extended our stay for a few days in Trinidad boot in 20 days. What we decided to stay, was the atmosphere of the house and Ricardo Leon.Nu Dianelis I thought that in a short time, in a very distant country of Romania, with a different culture, and Ricardo Leon Dianelis we can makes us feel like acasa.Casa, an exhibit of colonial architecture, is a real museum, where you pay ticket and you and privilejul inauntru.Intrebati the fridge to live 300 years old (in good condition) that is a jewel of ancient paintings, the furniture that seems just out of ambalaj.Cele 3 rooms where you can relax are very spacious, clean and well furnished with what is colonial.Despre style food, I can say that not compromising on anything - neither the quality nor the quantity. Fabulous breakfast - eggs, butter, jam, sandwich, natural juice, fruit, cookies, tea, natural milk from the farm, coffee, lots of coffee, although I'm not a coffee consumer, according to my husband after the fragrant smell of kitchen-coffee is great, the morning is great Leon.Cina House for who choose to serve Leon House will not regret it. Portions are large and contain fresh food. About diversity ... not to mention, little can be added to any meal Cuba.Solicitati top terrace is extraordinar.Au very careful when they cook everything to be clean, and are paying attention to the smallest details from from cleaning the kitchen to arrange on the plate, everything I do, I do it with soul and a lot daruinta.Miradorul, about the highest place in Trinidad, is the location where a Mojito, a Cuba Libre served at sunset, make Ricardo Leon House Dianelis and secure a place you can not forget it all his life. The location is perfect - in the center, close to shops, museums, House of Music, near the bus station to go to Ancon beach (for us, more beautiful than Boca Beach) The world we live is the speed and money and these two wonderful people and their families do everything to heart and put daruinta and beyond customer convenience than a feeling noble material interest .... I have no words to thank them for everything they did for us will respect the dedication of we have received and accepted at home and in your souls Enia & Vio (not Bio, not Luis)

Ricardo and Dianelys were the reason we stayed in Trinidad so long!! I was originally staying in Brisas Trinidad del mar which is a fancy all inclusive resort on Playa Ancon for 2 days, but ended up staying with The Leons for 5! Friends of mine were staying with Ricardo and Dianelys.. I joined them on the first night and was treated like I was part of the house even though I wasn't staying there the first night. Ricardo organized me a taxi with his friend and made sure I was safe and never ripped off.

He helped me get out of my depressing resort and stay with my friends in their room, hence saving money and able to have a great time enjoying the sights and beauty Trinidad has to offer. The location is fabulous. You're close to so many paladars, restaurants and most importantly- la casa de musica and la casa de trova. Both must sees!!

Ricardo and Dianelys treated me and my friends like we were apart of the family and we had so many inside jokes, it was hilarious to come home after a day out and talk with them. Really beautiful ppl and an ultra lovely and clean home. They have hired help which they treat like family also and you end up doing the same. Mercedes is an absolute gem.

Don't doubt this place. The reason it doesn't have a bad review is because its so amazing! I've even recommended my best friends to stay with them in a couple weeks time.

Mil gracias para todo Ricardo y Dianelys. No pude pedir mas de una casa particular. Su hospitalidad ha sido inolvidable y ustedes son aparte de nuestras memorias siempre. Besitos.. Mangón!!

Our stay here was excellent. We had a great time. The casa is almost in the middle of the center and therefore it is not far away to any of the interesting sights. The rooms are very nice and clean and arranged around a lovely patio. Our hosts were very friendly and offered us delicious food. We could even choose what we would like to have for dinner. We would definitely come back.

We have been staying at Dianelys and Ricardo for 2 nights. First, we have been searching for one of Trinidad's old colonial-style casas that are always recommended in the travel-guides. Since everything was booked out, we looked at this casa.

After the whole trip through Cuba, I need to say that this casa is now one of our favourites: not colonial-style and a bit kitschy (the paintings), but we had a spacious and very clean room upstairs, the casa has a beautiful roof-top terrace with a hammock and rockings chairs and the view above the city is brilliant. Furthermore, Ricardo has been working on another smaller terrace and an outdoor-shower one floor up and I assume it will be finished in the meantime for an even better view.
I absolutely have to emphasize again the cleanliness and comfort of the room: in contrast to the "colonial-style" buildings, the mattress was very convenient and the room absolutely not outworn.
The familiy was very friendly, breakfast great and dinner (if ordered) as well.
It is roughly a 5-minutes walk to Plaza Mayor (only straight walking) and parking in the quiet street is possible.

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms in total: - 2 on ground floow, accesssible through the patio (1 large room =>...
