Arrived at hotel after long taxi drive from Havana and told they were not going to honour our booking and we were not the only ones!! We had booked in August! Disgusting attitude. Beware other European travellers who have booked or are thinking of booking this hotel.

Nice hotel, we had a big room on the ground floor - they all surround a nice atrium with tables and chairs set out. No windows, big shuttered apertures, and aircon, but people on the atrium balcony could see into our room with the shutters open, no daylight with them closed. Good bathroom, place to sit on the edge of...

Lovely hotel, great location from which to explore Trinidad by foot. Rooms comfortable and very clean, not luxurious. Wonderful staff - especially if you make the effort to speak a few words of Spanish .Rooms at front of hotel noisy ie street noise

After a small panic that our reservation hadn't been received, we found that this hotel was a great place to stay in Trinidad. The staff were lovely, breakfast was great and the room was fine.

We had a 2-night stay here during our tour of Western Cuba. A 'boutique' hotel with rooms centred around an internal courtyard, this was a treat to stay at. The staff were so friendly, and efficient (Yes, I am not making this up), and dealt with express laundry, Wi-Fi, and currency exchange all in one go. The jolly barman (nice...

Simple yet well-appointed and comfy rooms, very quite. The rooms are named after traditional Cuban songs. Bar on top could have better appeal but it is well-stocked. Did not try the restaurant as we had meals somewhere else. A good choice for the traveler in Trinidad

This was the friendliest hotel we stayed in in Cuba. We received a lovely welcome and when we discovered that the safe in our room was broken, we were upgraded to a bigger room. Nothing was too much trouble and as the previous reviewers have written, their 'towel art' was fantastic. Those chamber maids have a great sense of humour....

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
