We stayed at La Rosa de Ortega for one week and had a fantastic time. Our apartment was lovely, spacious and clean with airconditioning. We were served a delicious breakfast every morning and all the staff are very friendly and will help you out with any questions or requests you have. The pool is great too. There are a few restaurants in the area (within walking distance) and it’s a 15 minute taxi drive to Old Havana. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for a lovely week, La Rosa de Ortega!

We booked based on ratings and we were not disappointed. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The staff were so helpful and friendly in spite of a language barrier. We tried and they did as well which worked out great when needing something. Our hosts however had a very good command of English and always willing to answer questions or make travel arrangements.
Each morning we had a nice local breakfast in the outdoor common area which typically had sliced breads, local fruit and great coffee.
We also would come back to the property and order sandwiches which were less expensive than in the old quarter and safer to eat. We found out the hard way by eating a sandwich off the street and promptly got sick on our last day. This B&B is not in the city center but our host always arranged a local driver to take us downtown for about $10.
The hosts made a good recommendation for a restaurant close by which served good food.
I hope we can go back and stay here again. It was a very comfortable place and a very safe place to use as a base for our Havana travels.

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 perfectly, lovely time.

I’d like to thank Julia, our wonderfully hostess for making us feel so welcome. I’ll see you again, when I return with my husband!

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.
