We stayed 4 nights in casa Nelson in February - 1st night we had to stay in the downstairs "blue" room before transferring upstairs for our other 3 nights. The terrace rooms are much newer & more comfortable. Breakfast adequate, not the best we had in Cuba. Unfortunately I suffered from food poisening one day ? from a local restaurant...

We stayed 4 nights at Nelson's 'casa particular' in March 2012. The hostal is just around the corner from the bus station and a stone throw away from the town centre. Senior Nelson, his family and staff were extremely friendly, cheerful and accomodating. We stayed in one of the rooftop rooms which was lovely, spacious and quiet, with en suite...

Credit to Nelson for meeting us at the bus station. Good locale. Had dinner the first night, soup was great the rest of the meal including the rice super salty. Breakfast was unappealing, needless to say only ate there these 2 times and rest of our meals were at paladors. He has 1 woman working for him not so friendly...

In February 2012 I stayed at Hostal Nelson for three nights. I found the overall reception of the host family to be warm and inviting. While being friendly, I never once felt they were imposing on my privacy. I stayed in one of the rooftop rooms which was bright and cheery and very quiet at night. The breakfast is served...

The room was very good, with nice decoration, AC, fridge, and well equipped bathroom. Very good food and...

My name is Segio S Esquerra. I was recently in Cuba and spent a week in Trinidad and Madeline's house. This was a wonderful week in this beautiful city but above all accommodation in this hostel turned out to be amaizing, very comfortable, great food and a breathtaking view from the terrace. The family that owns the hostel are very...

My sister and I stayed here for 5 nights and we loved it. The food was some of the best we had in Cuba, and very reasonably priced. Nelson and his family were so warm and welcoming. They were so lovely to me when I was feeling sick one day. The casa is very clean and well located in Trinidad....

“All rooms are air conditioned and extremely clean. Beds not overly comfortable but we soon learnt that they are very typical of all beds in Cuba, even in the 5 star hotel we stayed at in Havana.”
