We stayed here for 3 days. Was perfect to visit Havana center but not beeing in the fuzz of the city. A taxi will cost you about 10 cuc. Rooms are spacious, clean and have good beds. Swimming pool is perfect to chill after a long day is the city. Nice restaurants are nearby.
Staff are most friendly and helpful!
Would certainly recommend this and come back when visiting Havana again.
After staying in a casa on the Malecon we moved because we wanted somewhere with a pool. As soon as we arrived we let like we'd gone back into another time. The main house is beautiful with original tiled floors and lots of antiques. The staff were very friendly, especially Anna, whom we could have a conversation with due to her excellent English.
Once in the gardens it is very private with a pool and a lovely outdoor eating area where breakfast is served (7cuc each) and snacks throughout the day. Snacks and Cuban cocktails were very reasonable; cocktails only 2.50 CUC!
Before we arrived we'd been offered a free upgrade to the 'bungalow suite', which was not actually a bungalow but a two storey self contained property consisting of a very large bathroom and TV and seating downstairs and a large bedroom upstairs. All immaculately clean. It even had its own small garden and rocking chairs.
The pool was great after walking around Havana in the August heat, in fact we were the only ones it it so we well like it was our own.
We also enjoyed walking around the local area as it's not in a tourist spot so you get to se the real Havana. We had been recommended a local Cuban restaurant which we at in twice and was very reasonable.
The staff made us feel welcome from the security staff at night (who enjoyed practising his English) to the gardener who was constantly sweeping outside, and of course Anna who told us where the local cafes/restaurants were.
If we ever visit Havana again we would definitely stay here.
This was simply the nicest place we stayed in Cuba.
Anna was fantastic and helped so much with a medical emergency I had. Generous to a fault.
Lovely place with nice pool and bar in the grounds. Extremely helpful and order very good taxi drivers for you. This is important.
We will return as soon as we can
My partner and I have done a fair amount of traveling and stayed in a lot of different places. I can truly say this is one of the most beautiful and welcoming b&b's we have ever experienced. From start to finish staff were very kind and helpful, the breakfast was lovely, and the room was beautiful and very comfortable. The pool was a welcome relief from the heat and quite often we had it to ourselves! My father was unwell whilst we were there and spent two nights in hospital, the staff were so caring and accommodating and even insisted he didn't have to pay for the two nights he wasn't there, despite being allowed to keep all their belongings in the room. A special thank you to Anna, a member of staff who went above and beyond helping us with absolutely everything! We would return simply to see her again!! Recommended 110% thank you all!
We stayed at La Rosa de Ortega for one week and had a fantastic time. Our apartment was lovely, spacious and clean with airconditioning. We were served a delicious breakfast every morning and all the staff are very friendly and will help you out with any questions or requests you have. The pool is great too. There are a few restaurants in the area (within walking distance) and it’s a 15 minute taxi drive to Old Havana. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for a lovely week, La Rosa de Ortega!
