Where do you start? We booked our 4 night stay here prior to a cruise from Havana. From the initial email enquiry right up to saying goodbye our experience was fantastic. I'm normally quite sceptical about reviews on TripAdvisor but everything I read about La Rosa de Ortega was spot on. We arrived in Havana late in the evening where...

The whole "crew" is extremely friendly (but authentic) and helpful. We stayed 4 nights and came back after 1 week for another night and it was like coming home ! Everybody is doing a perfect job. The Villa is like a little museum and has so many nice details. Each room has it's own style. Only negative point: some rooms...

I stayed here for only one night my last day in Havana, and I wish I would have booked more nights now! The staff was super friendly and accommodating, and the property couldn't be any more beautiful!!! I would definitely recommend if you're looking to relax or for a romantic night.

La Rosa de Ortega is a beautiful B&B...However, I would like to call a "Villa" instead of just Bed & Breakfast...or resort like atmosphere...with the ground is impeccable tropical greenery, swimming pool, massage room, and kitchen service which is really gear to put you in a relaxing mood ... At the end our 9 days-ladies-only Cuban Tour, we spent 2...

We just returned from our first trip to Cuba and it was wonderful! Part of why the trip was so great was La Rosa De Ortega. I've been fortunate enough to travel all over the world, and this little gem is, by far, one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. In a quaint, friendly neighborhood high up in the...

I wrote a review of La Rosa de Ortega in January and do not see it anywhere on Trip Advisor. This casa is amazing! We were worried when the taxi was driving through the neighborhood that it was too remote and it was in an unsafe location. We were wrong! As Julia explained. Her casa is in a typical Cuban...

We stayed 4 nights with our 3 sons in this B&B. Following all of the great reviews, we booked well ahead and got enough connected space for the five of us so we could all be together. The rooms are very pretty and bright with nice sheets and mattresses. The breakfasts are made with care and are plentiful and fresh....
