Casa Rafael
Address: Fernando Hernadez Echerri #26
Tel: + 53 4193154

We have stayed 2 nights in lovely Trinidad in this centrally located casa, opposite casa de la Trova and close to the Plaza Mayor and the stairs with live music. The price was 25 / night with 8 for a dinner and 4 for a breakfast.

The host (Rafael) speaks both English and German and is a little eccentric but is definitely very friendly. He gave us some advice on where to go and even some lessons about cigars! The room is clean, has airco and ventilator. The bathroom is spacious and also clean. The food was ok. The best part of this casa is that it's so close to the stairs next to the church where they have live music which you can hear all day long (first the practice sessions, and later at night the performances)

'Breakfast is prepared with delicious fruits'

Casa Particular Smith, Odalis Gonzalez
Address: Callejon Smith 3
between Antonio Maceo and Jesus Menendez
Tel: 041 994060

We can only recommend Odalis' casa in Trinidad.
It is located right in the centre of the town, only a few minutes from Plaza Mayor. We found it difficult to get around in Trinidad by car but once you are there, you can book a garage upon request.
Odalis and her father Jorge were extremely friendly and hospitable, and did everything to make us feel welcome.
The casa has a wonderful patio where you can enjoy the meals or just relax.
The room was comfortable with AC and its own bathroom.
Don't miss the food - breakfast is prepared with delicious fruits, some from their own garden, and they also cook dishes like lobster for dinner.
We give Casa Smith 5 out of 5 stars and look forward to return.
PS: Just an advice - owners of Casa Particulares pay many taxes every month, regardless of whether they have guests or not. Therefore, remember to treat the Casa owners with courtesy - for instance by remembering to cancel your booking in case you can't make it, and by not trying to haggle over the prices. It is great value for money anyway.

Casa Familia Miguel A. Suarez del Villar Mauri
Address: Calle Gustavo Izquierdo No. 119
entre Simon Bolivar y Piro Guinart
Trinidad, S.S. Cuba C-P 62600
(opposite to the famous fancy restaurant called Don Antonio)
Tel : +53 5 2474272

Hi all,

My partner and I have come back from our 8-day Cuba trip.  We went to Trinidad from Havana via Viazul bus as many backpackers do.

I would like to recommend you a terrific casa - Casa Familia Miguel A. Suarez del Villar Mauri.

It is a beautiful colonial house right next to the bus station and opposite to a big restaurant called Don Antonio - the house is really big, pretty and eye-catching with its yellow window frames.  For sure no one can miss it!

We have stayed there for one night.  We had a real big room (2 double beds, private bathroom with hot water - btw the bathroom is bigger and cleaner than any hotel bathrooms I have ever booked!  I was really impressed).

The good things about this are that it is extraordinarily clean and tidy, very peaceful (the owner Miguel has 2 obedient dogs and some birds, you can imagine how great it is to just sit in the courtyard / garden in the house and enjoy the time & the serenity of the birds), comfortable, convenient and price is reasonable (CUC25 - CUC30 per room - given its perfect location, size and cleanliness, it definitely worths more than the price range!).

Miguel speaks English.  He is a very friendly, generous and nice host.  He's a bit shy and he never goes to the bus station to drag tourists to stay in his casa (unlike some of the other casa owners in Trinidad).  Both my partner and I like this gentleman and his house a lot.  Too bad that we really wish to stay in his place for a bit longer but we got to continue our journey to Varadero.

It is noted that his dogs are not those threatening hostile type.  I personally scare of dogs a lot (seriously, I am really afraid) but the two little dogs are just lovely and manageable.

If you happen to go to Trinidad, you may want to check out this casa.  It is the best casa in Cuba we have stayed in.  It might also be the best accommodation I have ever had through my backpacking travel experience.

Enjoy Cuba everyone =)
