We had a lovely four night stay in Havana at Rosa de Ortega. The room was great, with a nice swimming pool and breakfast. Breakfast included fruit, eggs, bread, as well as a variety of local dishes that varied daily - definitely worth the 5CUC. The location is a 20 minute taxi from Old Havana and this was not a problem- for your return journey do make sure to take the Casa map of the city as the taxi drivers may need this. The staff are very friendly and helpful and can book taxis and restaurants upon request. Would definitely return.

We did not have high expectations of finding a charming, fairly priced, professional bed and breakfast in Havana. Fortunately we were wrong. Rosa D'ortega is a beautifully decorated, colonial house. Others have called it more like a boutique hotel rather than a B and B which is correct. We booked the the ground floor suites and they are decorated on par with high end B and Bs in Tuscany but a bit damp. So if you have sensitivity to damp book a room higher up in the house. Very fairly priced. We stayed in the Hotel Nacional, for example, and we found Rosa D'ortega much better value.

The swimming pool is spotless, small but well sized for the property and a rarity in a B and B. The breakfast was delicious and varied. Staff were beyond accommodating especially the breakfast staff and the security guards. The neighbourhood is safe. Having a security guard at Rosa D'ortega is more about travellers' paranoia than the actual reality of Cuba which is super safe. They recommended a neighbourhood restaurant that turned out to be fabulous. Chic 50's decor (think decco not Vegas) and a super grill. The neighbourhood La Vibora is an easy location to find in a rental car or under $10 CUC cab ride to the boardwalk.

This review is a little delayed we stayed as we stayed at La Rosa de Ortega for 5 nights in August of this year and we had the most amazing stay. Julia was an incredible host and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful, clean and spacious with a nice outlook. The house itself was a beautifully restored old casa and the grounds and view were amazing. The pool was nice to cool off in after going into central Havana. The breakfasts were very nice definitely the best we had all trip. Even though this casa is a little out of central Havana it was easy to catch either a taxi or collectivo in and out of the city. There are also some good options for dinner within walking distance. This was by far the best accommodation that we stayed in during our 10 days in Cuba, only the way back through Havana we had to overnight and stayed in one of the famous hotels in central Havana and I can definitely say that La Rosa De Ortega far surpassed this hotel in every way, we have and will continue to recommend this place to friend travelling in Cuba. Thank you Julia for your kind hospitality during our stay!

By coincidence we booked this hotel. A very nice and charming place. Beautiful garden, quiet and good air to breath and after being in La Havana an Oasis. A must for all the individual people. Very nice rooms and they are all very individuall. Great stuff and all are very helpful with all your needs. Great breakfast place and we would definitely go back to this hotel.

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.
