    have problems doing

    (I recall we had problems finding the place.)
    Did we finally find the place?
    Thank you very much.

    We don't know from that sentence whether or not we found the place.

    Re: have problems doing

    And is it the same as 'We had difficulty/difficulties finding the place'? We don't know either from this sentence whether or not the speaker found the place. Am I right?
    Thank you again.

    Yes, that's right, it's not certain.
