5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

the casa is not only clean, friendly and with excellent food, but also in the center AND quiet. which is kind of hard to find, because either you have the noise of the traffic or you have music all night long....

very nice people, we enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace it was more than enough, with fresh fruit, juices, eggs at your choice. we had excellent meals, which we choose in advance.
important for us: the parking for our rental car.

We stayed in this casa particular for 4 nights in January,2013. Fresh fruit every morning with breakfast as we had come to expect in cuba and good optional dinners if you chose to eat in. All the facilities worked as planned, plenty of hot water. The two terraces are a welcome addition to the good sized bedrooms, lots of people use their rooftops here and it was fun to join them in the evening while sipping one of Carlos mojitas. Casa is on a sidestreet, "callejon" so the majority of the traffic is of the 4 hooved, two wheeled variety. Also it is only a couple of blocks from everywhere in Trinidad including the bus station. Would recommend this to anyone familiar with casa particulars and for anyone trying to break loose from the resorts.

Room Tip: we stayed in one of the two uptairs rooms ajoining the terrace but the one downstairs room might be...

it was really good experience.
they based right in the centre of the city.
especially loved their breakfasts and dinners (if you will ask for it) on their great balcony.
they have car parking next door from them.

also you can ask them about horse tour - it's good (but could be painful for you butt))))
anyway really recommend!

We stayed in Hostal Marilu y Nelson in Trinidad from 17 Dec until 21 Dec 2012.
Very nice family ( 3 generations) , really interested in their guests and giving all help you need.
Nothing seems to be uncomfortable in their Casa Paritcular.
I will recommend it to all I know travelling to Cuba.

Room Tip: the room next to the terass is the best.

We loved Hostal Marilu and Nelson! We stayed with Marilu and Nelson in August during our 8 days in Cuba and by far it was the most amazing part of our trip. From the minute we arrived we felt like part of the family and very welcomed in their beautiful home. We were amazed by how clean and beautiful the house was and the terrace was amazing. We arrived as the sun was setting and enjoyed a beautiful view of Trinidad from their peaceful terrace. In the morning, we were served breakfast on the terrace and enjoyed the delicious assortment of fresh fruit and juices. Marilu suggested a delicious restaurant for us to enjoy and many local sites. She was very available and willing to support and help us with any questions. She and Nelson both has tremendous patience and genuine interest in sharing their stories and suggestions with us. We felt completely at home and relaxed and so fortunate to have such an amazing experience with a family. As we were checking out there was a confusion with the money and Marilu was very quick to say, that we had made a mistake and that we were giving her too much money. She was very honest and trustworthy and generous at all times. We will surely return to Cuba and visit Marilu and Nelson again. We loved this casa particular!
