La Rosa de Ortega is the most beautiful place to stay in Havana. As many people have pointed out, you are away from the centre of Havana and a Taxi to get to the centre is a must, however you won't regret not being in the hustle and bustle. We stayed 3 times during our 10 day trip, using the Casa as our base and somewhere lovely to return to after adventures elsewhere. Whenever the car pulled up outside I felt like I was coming home. The house is a beautiful, 4 storey mansion, reminiscent of the old school glamour of the city. You breakfast outside on a covered terrace, and if you're lucky you might get the coconut pie in the morning. Cuban food is nothing to write home about, but somehow Julia's team pull it out of the bag and deliver fantastic eats every time. A lovely team who went out of their way to make us comfortable and Julia was an absolute hero on a number of occasions when we found ourselves ill, lost or at a rural airport without a taxi...
Cannot recommend La Rosa de Ortega enough.More
