This casa Particular is absolutely astonishing. Manuel, the owner, has remodeled the place maintaining the original architectural features and details, making the ambience elegant and warm at the same time. Moreover having breakfast in the green courtyard it's a perfect way to start the new day! It's definitely worth it

We stayed for two nights in this beautiful hostel. Meals were delicious and filling ( a lot of sweet fruits and traditional dishes). The court is really beautiful. You can sit under trees and plants to enjoy your time. Very good adress!

This hidden gem was recommended to us by a a friend and we weren't disappointed. It's centrally located, but in a quiet street, just a short walk from the town centre. Our host, Manuel, was the proud owner of the family house which dated back to the 18th century.He speaks good English and was extremely helpful. The hotel was crammed...

We arranged online to stay at this Casa and the owner confirmed our reservation after we reached Havana. We took the bus from Havana to Trinidad.

Stayed in the Casa Colonial el Patio in May 2016 for 4 nights with my sister. I can't rate it highly enough. Manuel and all his family and staff were absolutely wonderful - friendly and helpful. Breakfast each morning was excellent and I would highly recommend having dinner here one night - yummy food. The house has some beautiful old...

This is what you are looking for - wonderful house built in 1745 and perfectly revitalised by it's owner. Beautiful interior, magical Patio with old Mango tree, amazing ambience. It's like being Alice and entering Wonderland. You just see and feel the history of colonialism. Great breakfast and best CubaLibre we had in Trinidad. We would love to stay there...

The setting is excellent, old colonial is an good name. Sat in the open inner courtyard, great atmosphere with love music playing. A good, varied menu but the lobster was excellent, cheap, full of flavour and lots of it! Memories are build on food like this. Defiantly worth a visit if you are visiting Trinidad.

We loved this casa! Everything was in true colonial feel and the courtyard was awesome. The location couldn't have been better! Barely a walk to the center, but far enough away to not hear too much noise. The bathroom was old-school, maybe could use a small upgrade but the place was awesome. Manuel was very helpful and organized a taxi...

We enjoyed staying at el Patio for many reasons. Manuel and his team are very nice and helpful, and the house is just gorgeous, filled with antiques and curious objects. The patio is magical, full of lush plants and a great place to have the breakfast (very delicious) or a drink in the afternoon. The room was exceptionally quiet for...

I can't say enough about this casa. The rooms are done very nicely-according to the age of the casa. Bathrooms are modern but the rooms have a lot of charm. Though I don't want to take away from the rooms (there are 3), the garden is spectacular. You can sit in the courtyard and enjoy the quiet with a mojito!...

This beautiful colonial house is located in Trinidad's historical center, just two blocks away from the Central Square and local bars (Casa de la Musica, Palenque, Casa de la Trova). The house was constructed in 1754 by the Spanish with all the architectural elements of colonial houses which have been preserved (internal patio, wooden ceiling, floral motif ornamentation of the door and window paneling). Its two rooms have been refurbished with all modern amenities. The owner and his family will certainly make you feel at home! ... more   less
