Welcome to HOSTAL EL CAPITAN
Owned and operated by Chef René Rodríguez & wife Senora Noemi Hernández
This small family with BIG hearts will brighten your days and widen your smiles with their charming, wonderful personalities. They are kind and warm, always eager to please their beloved guests making sure they feel welcomed and comfortable.
Sr Rene is a retired chef at a famous local hotel and will prepare some of the most delicious meals you will likely have in all of Cuba.
This Casa has a beautiful large rooftop patio on the 3rd floor with a stunning south view of the city, the Caribbean sea, and the west view of the beautiful Topes de Collantes Mountains.
Of course the guests always love to lounge up there during the day or evenings, have drinks or enjoy one of Rene's delicious meals on the rooftop patio.
Unfortunately Sr Rene and his family do not speak much English, but they somehow always figure you a way to communicate with their beloved guests.
The entire house is for the guests. Rene and his family resides across the street at a much smaller house.
There are 2 basic guestrooms independently on the second floor, each with own private bathroom and shower inside the room.
The space is of a typical Cuban home, it is not luxury, but its comfortable.
The home is located in the heart of Trinidad just 3 blocks, and 4 minutes walk to the beautiful Cespedes Park where you can access prepaid internet 24hrs a day!
It's also exactly 12 min walk from the Viazul bus terminal and to Plaza Mayor and the historical center.
*Please note, If you are looking for a Luxury accommodation, then you may be disappointed in most Cuban homes and this home is a typical Cuban home offering basic, but comfortable clean accommodations*
Unfortunately some travelers don't have a good idea on what Cuba has to offer and forget that this is still a very poor 3rd world country stuck in the 1950's, and even though the old architecture is beautiful and such it's still nothing close to first world living.
So please do some proper research because Cuba is definitely not for everyone, and you need to be open minded and be able to accept things as they are and prepared to overlook many things, otherwise you will not enjoy Cuba.

Otros aspectos destacables
Please be sure to download the free offline map of Maps Me from Play store or App store. this is by far the best Map for Cuba and definately will safe you lots of headache as internet access is extremely limited so you would need an offline map.
Also most Cubans don't speak much English, so a fantastic translation program such as Gooqle Translate will also be extremely helpful.
Love and Respect are the main rules.
This is a family home, so please treat it accordingly.
Not allowed to invite others back to the house, especially new Cuban girl/boy friends without previous notice.
please no illegal activities, no smoking in the rooms, only on the rooftop patio.

- This is a fully licensed rental home. The government of Cuba requires such licensed homes to record their guests passport info along with arrival and departure dates, so up on arrival you will be asked to present your passports to the host so she can create a log.
