Country: Netherlands

Casa de Mirelys Dapresa y Alioski
Address: Colon 355
City: Trinidad
Tel: 041-994334

Great casa - very friendly people, lovely roof terrace and, mostly, fantastic food (they cut roses out of the tomatoes here!). I heard many people complain about being hassled in Trinidad, but since I went straight to this casa (just a few blocks away from the busy square, but maybe that was just enough distance from the hustlers) that wasn't my experience at all. The house provided quiet and coziness at the same time, and host Alioski will join you to the Cueva discoteca if you ask nicely!

Casa specifics: Quiet, Fantastic hosts, Comfortable, Hidden gem, Safe, Garden
Amenities: Private bathroom, Laundry service, Balcony, Garden, Dinner service, Bathroom with shower
How was your room?: Perfect. Very bright, very clean.
How was the food they offer?: Excellent. See above. Go for the chicken, I don't remember the name of the sauce they prepare it in but it was a winner.

Casa Tamargo
Francisco Javier Zerquera 266
e/ Marti y Maceo

Staying with Matilde and Felix was wonderful.
We experienced such warm hospitality, they are such wonderful, kind people and they treat their guests like beloved family members.
We also loved Trinidad. We have both travelled a lot, and it was one of the most beautiful cities in Cuba we have been to.
One thing to be aware of is that Matilde and Felix do not speak English. We practice a lot of Spanish.

Casa specifics: Quiet, Fantastic hosts, Comfortable, Cozy, Charming, Beautiful, Patio
Amenities: Airconditioning, Private bathroom, Minibar, Laundry service, Garden, Ceiling fan, Breakfast service, Dinner service, Queensize bed, Extra bed available
How was your room?: Accommodation was very comfortable; we stayed in big room with access to the lovely shaded patio with tropical flowers and chairs to relax on. The bathroom was good - very clean and no problems with hot water.
How was the food they offer?: Matilde made amazing dinners and breakfasts for us - the food was delicious and there was a lot more than two people could eat.

Casa Mireya Calderon Zulueta
Address: Calle Maceo No. 540
Tel: +53 (0141) 992230

Our first impression of the house and the hostess was great. Soon we realized one should not judge by first impression.
We had several problems with this house. The most important was the water - the water was either dripping through the shower head or there was no water at all. When we contacted our landlady and asked her to do something about it, she promised she would and despite her promise did nothing about it. I have to stress that she advertises her lodging as, and I quote, '' agua fria and caliente 24 horas''. I guess we should have asked if the water was RUNNING water or DRIPPING water.
After (once again) drawing our landlady's attention to our problem that has not been solved, she agreed to charge us 25 CUC for one and 20 for another room (it was supposed to be 25 CUC each).
However, when the day of our departure arrived, she served us with a bill completely different of the one we've agreed on (tried to charge us 6 CUC for coffee, and another 5 CUC for one room).
In the end she was not happy with the amount of money we gave her and slammed the door on us (accompanied by swearing and hoping we had an accident on the road). NEVER, EVER STAY HERE!

How was your room?: Rooms were nice and comfortable, with A.C.
How was the food they offer?: The food was the only thing that made me rate this place with 2 stars. It was amazing. However, the landlady made us think we were getting a great deal by paying 8 CUC for dinner (later we learnt it was a usual fee for dinner). Breakfast was OK, but not so good as dinner.

Casa Nancy Ortega Lopez
Address: Calle Manuel Solano #17 (Pimpollo)
Trinidad, Cuba
Tel: +53 141993734

Nancy is a very enthusiastic and friendly woman. She has a comfortable clean basic room with private bathroom for hire. There is a 2 and a one person bed, but we heard that 4 persons also have stayed there before.
The house is situated in "downtown" Trinidad, 300m walking from the centre of the town.

Nancy speaks little English (and we stupid tourist little Spanish) but she talks with hands and feet so understanding has not been a problem at all. She is more than willing to help you to have a great stay in Trinidad you just put forward your desires so she can help you realising them.

The gem of the house is the airy patio which is providing a spot for relaxing and enjoying you Cuba Libre after a day on the beach or strolling around in the city.

Casa style: Quiet, Fantastic hosts, Elegant, Comfertable, Hidden gem, Beautiful, Safe
Amenities: Airconditioning, Private bathroom, Minibar, Laundry service, Garden,
How was your room?: The room is clean and basic with a newer type of airconditioning (which is quite) and an extra fan. The private is directly connected to the bedroom.
How was the food the offer?: Nancy or her relative is able to cook a very tasteful  dinner or a standard breakfast. As everywhere the choice for the "meat" is pork, chicken, gamba's etc.
Certainly recommendable  to taste the cooking style at least once.
Other services they offer: Nancy is able to arrange you all kinds of things. Just ask.

We used the laundry service and the bike service of the neighbour accross the street.

Casa Albertico
Address: Ernesto V. munoz #75
e/ Fco. J Zerquera y Patricion Lumumba
Tel: +53 41993721

lovely casa, with a very friendly host.  2 rooms available.  very close to the centre of town and the bus station, but also nice and quiet.
we stayed here for 3 nights.  there is a nice roof terrace where we had dinner each night. 
a small amount of english spoken, but with our small amount of spanish and sign language everythingw orked out just fine.  alberto went out of his way to help us arrange laundry and accomodation on our next stop in camaguey - a fantastic host.

Casa style: Quiet, Fantastic hosts, Safe

Amenities: Airconditioning, Private bathroom, Laundry service, Balcony

How was your room?: The room was downstairs.  Clean and tidy.  2 beds (double and a single) and airconditioning (which we didn't use as it was winter).  Ensuite bathroom with a good shower.

How was the food the offer?: Food was great.  We ate breakfast and dinner here each day during our stay and both were great.  The only problem was there was far too much food!  my wife battled with an enormous lobster one evening, but i think the lobster got the upper hand/claw.

Other services they offer: We were running out of clean clothes, but we were able to arrange for our laundry to be done here.  We were a bit disorganised and didn't give much notice, but even though we were leaving on an early bus, the laundry appeared - fantastic service.
