We found A left through an article on Lonely Planet. If we were able to we would have loved to have stayed longer. We were greeted at the front door by his wife's beautiful smile after which she made us feel completely at home. Alexy arrived later in the day and was really lovely to chat with. Alexy's father was up early to make us tea nad coffee before we rushed off for our tour. Would recommend them to anyone and only wish we could have stayed longer!
I can honestly say that my husband and I LOOOOOOVED! our stay with Alexey and his family. They really treated us as if we were part of the family. The room, the food, the rooftop, everything! was just amazing! We had the opportunity to have great conversations with the whole family. Alexey's dad is a sweetheart. Every time we would go back to the house to rest, he'll make sure to come out and say hi! The whole family ws just great. I have nothing else but good things to say about them. We will definitely be back and stay with you guys! Los vemos pronto!
Alexey est une personne formidable et ainsi que sa famille. la chambre est très propre et bien décorée. la maison n'est loin du centre de Trinidad. Alexey est toujours au service de ses invités. ce qui etait plus dans cette maison vous avez la connexion d'internet gratuite!! eh oui pour Cuba c'est une exception:) .. je vous conseille fortement de séjourner chez Alexey! je remercie encore à lui et à toute sa famille pour cette rencontre unique!
We had a wonderful stay with Alexey and his family! They made us feel so welcome and shared lots of useful advice on things to do in Trinidad and onwards travel. The casa is really beautiful with a large terrace where you can sit outside to read or enjoy a lazy breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights in a really lovely bedroom with a big private bathroom. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and very comfortable. Alexey and his family are really friendly and helpful - this was my favourite casa in Cuba!
Your principal host is Alexey, a big hearted man who communicates patiently with a decent amount of English. You will also meet his charming family. We stayed in a range of casas and hotels in Cuba and this casa was best overall. In particular, cleanest and largest room, most comfortable bed, best guest information, most extensive guest services, best air conditioning, best stocked mini-bar, best security arrangements, best terrance/outdoor spaces, nicest breakfast and best dinner. It is also the only accommodation we stayed that had a hair dryer, it is 5-10 minutes walk from central old Trinidad and also does pottery classes for guests.
Would not recommend, told less than a day before arriving we had to move to another Hostal because he overbooked. He increased the agreed price the day we left. Would not book with him again.
We hade a very pleasant stay at Alexeys casa. The room was very clean and Alexey and his wife are very welcoming ! The casa is near the center of Trinidad and the diner at their casa was veru delicous. It was our best experience in CUBA !
My stay with Alexey and his family was incredible - they were very friendly, extremely welcoming and fantastic hosts. They treated me as part of their family - Alexey, gave me a pottery lesson on his birthday and his father even invited me to his birthday dinner, where I met his friends and other family members, who taught me so much about Cuba and life there.
The house is beautiful and well located, the room was very comfortable and had all the amenities you would need (from air-conditioning to fridges). I am extremely grateful and lucky that I picked their casa and I would highly recommend that you try and get a space there (I promise you will not be let down).
Much love and hugs to Alexey and his family!
Fantastic Casa, Family, food and atmosphere. Very helpful Owners and amazing place. If you are there ask for extra breakfast and eat there dinner. The Family will try to help as much as they can and they care you have the best time. I was really great experience. If I get back to Trinidad, I will definitely stay there and recommend it to anyone.
En el octubre de 2016 teníamos días de aventura en la casa de Alexey en Trinidad. Nos gustaba sobre todo el tiempo que pasémos en la Playa Ancon. La casa fue limpia, en el baño habiá agua caliente y frio, el patio fue muy lindo con sus decoraciones. Todo la gente de la casa nos ayudó como podría. Alexey nos ha eseñado un sitio, donde se puede comprar los famosos tabacos. El desayuno también fue rico y hemos recibido un presente de despedida, muchas gracias otra vez ;)
Pasémos buen días en Trinidad.
