Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have stayed here twice, also for a bit longer. La Rosa de Ortega is the pure oasis in Havana, beautiful, lush, green, peaceful, decorated with love and a lot of taste - and the most amazing people! I have made friends with the owners as well as with the staff, and it will be my pleasure to always return and visit them! Ever single one warm and welcoming and an own character. I sometimes felt like I was living in a novel... This being said, also for a short stay to catch some air, for a romantic getaway or just a stylish place to stay with great food - La Rosa de Ortega is for you! I smile every time a remember the place.

I visited La Rosa de Ortega as part of a group and had a wonderful time there. Our hostess Julia was so warm, kind, open, and felt like she was welcoming us home. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The pool, dining, and spa area were so gorgeously designed and the inside of the house was like a set from a 1930s movie: so elegant and retro. Next to the spa there's a beautiful view over all of Havana!

Was staying across the street and visited the restaurant at La Rosa De Ortega several times - food and service by Julia and her staff was outstanding! The fish ceviche and octopus cooked in a little terrine were my favorite!

I had stayed here in September 2019 with my boyfriend, and cannot stop raving about how beautiful and amazing this place is. I had traveled to Cuba before, and wanted to stay here for the longest, and I am so happy that I did. This place is not only beautiful, but there's so much character everywhere you look. The staff is absolutely amazing and kind, truly pleasant. From the moment we arrived, they helped with our luggage, as well as settling in and making us feel home. It's very rare to travel the world and feel as if you're home, and this place did just that. The food is fresh and delicious (some of the most fresh fruits I have ever had), the drinks are fresh as well (thanks to Cecilia) and the rooms are so comfortable and clean! The owners are always there to help you with anything, and are there to assist you in booking anything too! This truly was an incredible experience that I'll never forget. Thank you to the staff who treated us so well. I appreciate you. Gracias por todo! Los aprecio.

We just got back from our holiday in Cuba and I have to say our stay at Rosa Ortega was the highlight of our trip. Mr. George was the first to greet us and made every effort to see that we were welcome and to enjoy our stay. Having a personal chef and staff to take care of every need was a treat for sure. If we wanted a taxi service they organized it, dinner out, they gave us lots of places to choose from in the area. Anna (The manager) saw that we were there during my wife's birthday and went and picked up a cake for her. And we were able to share with the other guests. A little piece of paradise, and a touch of class sums this place up. You will not be disappointed. If you do book this place please bring a Toronto Blue Jays ball cap for Mr. George.

An incredible experience for your stay in La Havana! Service is just perfect. Ana is an incredibly warm and hearty, and so professional and efficient. She, and all other staff too, will do all they can to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are large and immaculate, and well furnished with towels and toiletries. You can get food and drinks any time during the day, in a cosy dedicated area in the garden. Breakfast is awesome and a very good deal. WiFi is free (for real, no need for an Etecsa WiFi card as in any other casas in Cuba) and dorks well most of the time. Don’t forget you are in Cuba... The pool area is nice and relaxing after a long walking day in La Havana. The casa is not in the historical district. It was not a problem for us as we had a rental car and the city center is quite easy to commute with plenty options to park. At the casa, we could park just in front of the entrance in the street, the usual way all around in Cuba. We made two stops at the casa during our round-trip in Cuba, and both were simply perfect. All in all, you get similar service just like in a high-rated 4-stars hotel, with the extreme pleasure to stay in a typical Cuban casa, and of course at much affordable prices. Don’t hesitate a minute!

Absolutely love this place . Beautiful rooms , clean , great antiques in the house to marvel over , lovely pool , “bunny” the pet rabbit is adorable , and the fresh fruit , bread , daily “sweet item” and eggs breakfast is just fantastic . The most important for me though is the staff - they are all so welcoming and work so incredibly hard to make your stay so wonderful . I would highly recommend going on a couple of tours arranged by “Anna” - her English is exceptional and she is extremely knowledgeable if you want to learn about the history of the country . The B and B is situated a few miles out of the main town , which for us, was perfect . About 10 CUC to get back via taxi but you feel like you are escaping the busy town and coming back to your little sanctuary - the B and B will call any taxis for you . The views of the town are also fantastic ! You will receive a map and recommended places to eat which are inexpensive and well worth visiting . We loved our stay here and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone who wants to see the real Havana and keep away from the typical tourist hotel .

clean and peaceful casa ,with beautiful city view from the garden. location is acceptable, 10cuc to old Havana. (staff will help you to call the taxi and ask for reasonable price). our room is a suite with living room and a kitchen, but bed is queen size ( next time, we will surely ask for king size bed or twin beds room ). breakfast is good (7cuc) and dinning place opens to night, so we had ordered Cuba style hamburg in the afternoon ( 2.5 cuc?), and asked for hot water at night. All staffs are so nice, especially Anna , I do hope I could stay longer so we can have more chance to chat. The only pity is there is no electric water kettle in room , so we Chinese can not drink hot water or have cup of tea more conveniently.

We stay 6 days at this beautiful and peaceful home on the hill with a to died for view of the city from our rooftop terrace. We can not believe our luck to stay at such a wonderful place to explore Havana. The breakfast with fruit and bake goods every morning was an added bonus. The staff was attentive and even booked an massage for me at the pool house one night. I would stay there again and you should too!
