Friendly staff that really seemed to enjoy their jobs. The upstairs bartender was especially welcoming and interesting to talk with. The public areas were comfortable and the internet service (you have to buy an access card) quite reliable.

I had a great experience in La Ronda! The hotel is downtown within walking distance from many different landmarks. The rooms are spacious, clean and most important very quiet. The maids are one of a kind, they can do art with the towels! There are two bars in the hotel, one on the ground floor and one upstairs, in any...

We visited Trinidad as part of our honeymoon and booked this hotel at the last minute after we found that our original hotel (the one on the hill) was not to our liking. The staff here are warm and friendly and the service is provided promptly and with little fuss. We would highly recommend Hotel La Ronda to any couple...

Quaint hotel, clean and comfortable. I never did figure out the air conditioner and to stop it from blowing on my face all night long I just shut it off. Basically there are no windows that open but even if they did it would have been unbearably hot. Had a surprise visitor on night just inside my door - a...

While traveling in Cuba on a people to people tour, we stayed at La Ronda. I was in mortal fear that this hotel was going to be horrible like the one we stayed at earlier in the week. Much to my pleasure this boutique style hotel was a gem in such a small town as Trinidad. The rooms were small...

This is a good comfortable hotel in a charming period building. Our room had a balcony at the front of the building with good views and we weren’t disturbed at all. The breakfasts were good though, like with reception, the service was erratically Cuban. The cleaning staff were charming and helpful, taking the local tradition of forming art from your...

Stayed here as part of our tour of Cuba. Comfortable. Good location. Very friendly staff. There is a little bar upstairs and a restaurant, a lovely group of musicians serenaded us. Prices seem reasonable. This hotel is very near the main square and you can walk everywhere from here.

We were booked here for three nights on a "people to people" tour. The organizers had warned us not to expect American amenities in Cuban hotels. Frankly, we felt the warmth and charm of Cuban hospitality far outweighed any of perceived limitations. La Ronda is an attractive small hotel with rooms arranged around a central courtyard with tables, fountain and...

Fantastic location, thoughtfully decorated rooms, attentive and helpful staff. Probably the best Mojito we had in Cuba served in the upstairs bar. Checkin and checkout handled very swiftly compared to other hotels in Havana and Vinales. Breakfast was OK but a bit of a shame that it didn't match rest of experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The small La Ronda Hotel opens onto Parque Cespedes and offers a value-priced budget alternative to the deluxe Iberostar a stone's throw away, while having the advantage of a heart-of-affairs location compared to the similarly priced Hotel Horizontes Las Cuevas up the hill. The concept is fairly simple: take a 19th-century townhouse, fix up the plumbing and install modern bathrooms, give the rest of the building a sprucing and open up to foreign tourists. Hotel Cubanacan (formerly Islazul) La Ronda is located in the centre of Trinidad which has been declared a world heritage site by the UNESCO. Nearby is the Romantic Museum, the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), the Santa Ana Church the Cantero Palace and much more. The 17 air-conditioned bedrooms are on two levels opening to an atrium patio with palms and potted plants. Furnishings are somewhat meager, and the mattresses and pillows are second rate. Nonetheless, the rooms are the equal of most private room rentals (the most popular options in Trinidad) in town. The high ceilings and colonial tile floors help keep rooms cool, and those facing south have tall French doors opening to balconies overlooking the lively plaza. Satellite TVs, telephones, small refrigerators, and in-room safes are standard. The small restaurant and bar here are charming, albeit simple. Continental and criolla meals are served. For a splurge, the ritzy restaurants and bars of the Iberostar Gran Hotel Trinidad are literally a 50-pace stroll away. La Ronda hotel has been recently renovated. ... more   less
