“Best place ever!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We got the adress to Carlos and Marisel from a guy we met in Costa Rica who told us that we had to go and live here, and so we did.
Carlos and Marisel are loving, friendly and helpfull. We were supposed to stay here for just three nigths but ended up staying longer. The house is lovely and have a beautufull balcony on the roof. We ate breakfast and dinner here every day. Nice and comfly room, great familiy and a memorable stay. It was sad to leave, and we highly recomend this place to everyone thats going to Trinidad.

When you go to Trinidad, stay at Carlos and marisel. They are the nicest people I've ever met, and their casa is make you feel like home, when you are far from home. We intend to stay only two nights there, but because the hostess personality we stayed 5 nights, and wish we would stay more. Make sure that you are eating in the casa breakfast and dinner, as marisol is a wonderful cook, and Carlos is a perfect waiter (I recommend also to order Carlos's mojito - the best in Trinidad)

This is the best casa we and our friends had stayed in all Cuba. Carlos and Marisel are very welcoming and made us feel at home. The food Marisel made for us was very good - specially the sea food. The casa is clean and close to everything . I would recommend this casa to any one who is coming to Trinidad!

When you want to go to Cuba or already are there don’t hestitate to visit CARLOS AND MARISEL in Trinidad. They give you the feeling to be at home. Their warm hospitality and willingness to help you is melted.
Our room with twin beds was comfortable and clean and the beds were excellent to sleep on.
Your own private roof terrace (see photo) is decorated by flowers, plants and herbs and you have a great panoramic view on Trinidad and its surroundings and a romantic sunset.
Both breakfast and dinner were excellent in quality and large and in assortment.
It is situated a few minutes from Plaza Mayor and if you arrive by bus a few minutes from the Viazul bus station.
We recommend Hostal El Xique to everybody!

We had a really big, actually massive, bed in the big room. The breakfast was really nice prepared by Marisel, possibly the best breakfast we had in a casa. Their terrace is really nice with a very beautiful view of the old town and church. Carlos and Marisel are really sweet and wonderful hosts.

Carlos Xique and Marisel Montero are wonderful warm hosts who are thoughtful and kind. Their home is welcoming and clean and their double room is comfortable with a great outdoor roof balcony. We paid 25 CUC a night for two people which was cheap and well worth it.

The Hostal location is great in the centre of town and close to the Old Historic town with all the restaurants and music that make Trinidad famous.

Marisel makes great breakfasts and will cook you dinner if you want. We found them to be intelligent, honest and lovely people. I highly recommend this Hostal if you are visiting Trinidad Cuba. Playa Ancon is a 12km taxi ride away

Room Tip: Only one room available in their private home but lots of space outside on the terrace with great su...
