“Going with a rental car? BE WARNED!”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

This is a rather nice Casa Particular but be warned. We were told by the owners that it was safe to park in front their house. We were also charged 2CUCs a day for the guard who ‘watched’ the car. On our third day we walked out to find that the car had been broken into. No windows were broken. It was a cheaper Chinese car that could easily have the locks popped open with a wire-hanger. Our Spare tire and jack were stolen. The owner shrugged his shoulders in amazement saying it must have happened during the day and the guard only starts from six at night. It was all a bit ridiculous as the car was parked directly in front of the place with its large doors open all day long. There are also other Casas surrounding it. Coincidentally I was ill and not sleeping well. So the next night I looked out for the guard several times during the night. There was on one there.
If you rent a car in Cuba the radio and tires are not insured - that includes the jack. The Casa owner said the police would do nothing and we would have to file huge amounts of paper work before we could move on. We didn’t bother. Still we did have to pay a total of 325 CUCs for the tire, rim and jack.
Also the owner was more than happy to charge us for the parking regardless of us being robbed.

Aunque tarde, pero antes no podía tener acceso.
Yo cuento mi versión de los hechos del siguiente modo:
El día de los hechos, solamente estuvieron dos días y fue el ultimo día (lo que le robaron fue algo que dejaron dentro del auto, que no se que fue, Y NO UNA GOMA CON SU LLANTA, como ellos explican), ellos ese día parquearon el auto sobre las 11:00 am. Y lo dejaron abierto con los cristales bajos y vino una persona de la calle a decir en la Casa que el auto estaba con los cristales bajos. Esto fue todo

We stayed at Hostal Bastida for 3 nights. We had the smaller of the two rooms, which was a bit cramped, but everything else about the house was excellent. It is very centrally situated, and is a typical, unspoilt Trinidad house. Looking out from the roof terrace over the rooftops of Trinidad on the warm summer evenings was an unforgettable experience. The welcome was very warm, and the breakfasts and dinners were some of the best we had in Cuba !

A real 'casa' indeed. A warm feeling place where you are welcome and right in the middle of Trinidad. We had the bigger of the two rooms with balcony at the front.

You literally feel the 'back in time' atmosphere. Expect from a few loose springs in the matras and a bit of noise from the road, perfectly fine!
The owners have done their best to make the house into a little museum with so many different old things to create the feel.

The breakfast is really great, especially the bigger one and the two roof terraces with the views are the finishing touch.

We stayed here for 4 nights. There are two rooms, the biggest one has a own balcony with view over the street. The smaller one has a view out of the window over the city till the sea. There are more terraces to share but the ROOF TERRACE is amazing! Beautiful view over the city, mountains and sea! Best place for a beautiful sunset! There are rocking chaires. Very kindly host. Beautiful house and good location, everything walking distance. Lovely place to stay in Trinidad!
