Me and my husband spent three nights here and loved it. We were out most of the days exploring but were happy to come back here at the end of the day. What really made it so lovely were the people who work there. Everyone was so kind and attentive. We stayed in a very charming turquoise colored room with cool original details and an updated bathroom with everything you need. We felt safe (you have to buzz in and someone is always at the front desk) and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, to boot!

I stayed here with my mother during the last week of December. We have always wanted to visit Cuba, and believed that we would never see it. We had no idea where to stay, but after a lot of research on Trip Asvisor, we decided to stay with Julia and her wonderful staff at La Rosa de Ortega. It is a beautiful, clean, and scenic B&B. We felt safe, throughout our stay and truly appreciated the efforts of the entire staff. A delicious breakfast can be had for $7/pp, while lunch is also extremely reasonable. La Heredia is an excellent restaurant, within walking distance. There’s also a nearby WiFi park. I would suggest that you hire a tour guide, if you’d not familiar with Havana. We only toured Havana once, while there, because we both really needed the rest, and we had a

We stayed at La Rosa de Ortega last week while visiting Havana and surroundings. The place was beautiful, clean, welcoming and made our vacation fantastic! Julia and her staff go above and beyond to make your stay an experience! The breakfasts were delicious, we could order beverages and snacks any time. The accommodations were unique, clean, beautiful and extravagant. Julia invited us to spend New Years Eve with her and her wonderful family and it was a fun, wonderful night! They helped us with selecting daily itineraries, calling locations, reserving taxis. We were within walking distance of a wonderful restaurant, called La Fondita, where we had a couple of great dinners and not expensive! We will definitely consider returning to this place again! Thanks Julia!

After so many years, guests have truly become part of our family. Each time the experience of waiting for the new year with the guests is beautiful, and this 2019, once again I felt privileged like few beings in the world. Around me was my beautiful large family composed of people I had never seen before, who spoke different languages ​​but we all embraced with emotion, we wished the best things and we did not think for a second what our differences were, we all felt the happiest human beings on the planet. It's me who has to thank you and your sweet family for staying with us. A huge hug to you in the distance...we all miss you! Julia and the rest.

We stayed here for three nights in December with friends. Our friends booked It based on reviews and it did not disappoint. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. Although our friends room in the main building had a problem with the shower temperature and pressure. It was reported but not solved. Our room was located away from the mail building with a small seating area downstairs and wall to wall windows in the bedroom upstairs with a king bed. The mattress was comfortable although a bit firm. The bathroom had a decent size shower with good water pressure and temperature. It included a hairdryer, soap and plenty of towels. The breakfast selection was plentiful with fresh fruit and juice, eggs, bread and plenty of coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpful and

We started and ended our 18 day holiday in Cuba at La Rosa de Ortega. It was a wonderful start after a long haul flight, jet lag, etc. to find ourselves in this beautiful oasis of calm in the suburbs of Havana. (Taxi 10 CUC into town, well worth it!) We arrived to a warm welcome from the staff and Cuba Libres! The staff are a wonderful team, so helpful and really happy to spend time with the visitors and practise their English. The breakfasts are a feast and watch out for George's wonderful homemade cake! The rooms are all uniquely different and the house has much authentic period furniture that takes you back to the 40's and 50's. We left refreshed, ready to take on Cuba and returned after our travels to such a warm welcome from Julia and the staff, we felt like family. I
