Property Description

The hostel "El Ceramista" is a beautiful colonial house built in the 1940s. The house is located close to the square Carrillo in the same street as the Trinidad Cigar Factory. In a distance of just 600 meters you can find the historical center with all the main tourist points of interest. Upon your arrival you will be served a delicious cold fruit juice for free. The hostel’s neighborhood is very pleasant, central and very safe. In the house there are three air conditioned rooms with big windows: One room is on the first floor, with private bathroom and access to the patio. The two other rooms are located on the second floor. Both rooms can be rented as two separate bedrooms or as entire apartment with shared living room and private bathroom each.

In the house lives a family of 5 people: 4 adults and a boy. Your hosts Omaida and Modest will offer you a service of maximum quality with entertainment, good food and lots of pleasure. Their son Alexey runs a traditional pottery in the house. By keeping alive one of the most ingrained Trinidarian traditions he creates beautiful masterpieces of ceramic art. Of course, you are invited to discover his creations and, if you want, he will happy to give you a free pottery lesson.

If you inform the family about your hour of arrival you will be expected at your personal arrival point (e.g. the Viazul bus station). View House Rules

    In March 2019, we stayed two nights at Casa El Ceramista. We felt immediately welcome, as soon as we walked through the door. Alexey, the owner, is a gifted ceramic artist and has created an oasis of comfort in the casa’s courtyard. We had a beautiful room, spacious, super clean and extremely comfortable. We can highly recommend this casa to anybody who is looking for an accommodation in Trinidad of the highest quality, best service and most charm. We came as guests and left as friends! Udo

    Alexey and his family provided an excellent service whilst we stayed at their beautiful home, and I would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit charming Trinidad. The rooms were slightly separated from the house which meant we had an area to ourselves, with easy access to the family home for any help needed. Great location, clean, with handy maps and tour information provided!

    in few words: like at home! Really a perfect solution to enjoy the city and your stay in Trinidad. Nice room, near to the main square, owner always available to help you (excursions, tranfert to other places, suggestions for the city). It's also possible eat at home: my husband and I tasted the lobster...really don't miss it! The best memory we keep in our heart of all Cuba!

    Our time staying at Casa El Ceramista was without doubt the highlight of our entire Cuba trip. Well-appointed room, delicious home-cooked food, pretty terrace surrounded by avocado trees, great location in town, adorably playful puppy... the list goes on! But what really stood out was the helpfulness and generosity of Alexey and his family, who truly went above and beyond to make our stay special. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!

    Me and a friend went to Cuba in May this year and were lucky enough to stay at Hostal Casa El Ceramista. We had an absolutely amazing stay, Alexey and his family were so welcoming and friendly. The room was incredible, especially the aircon and fully stocked fridge which really helped in the over 30' heat! We ate a delicious breakfast every morning on the beautiful roof top which was a perfect way to start each day. I highly recommend Casa El Ceramista and hope I get to stay there again!

    We had a really great time. The family were really welcoming and lovely and we instantly felt at home. The place itself is also very cool, Alexey is a potter and has put a lot of work into the styling of the courtyard. The location is perfect to explore Trinidad from.
