Our first nights in Havana, Cuba

This was a great place to stay for our first few nights in Havana. La Rosa D Ortega is a BB on a hill over looking Historico Havana.

The charming owners Julia and Silvio and their staff are on hand with very good english to organise your restaurant bookings, taxis and advise you about what is wonderful around Havana. Take advantage of this to book as much as possible. English is not widely spoken.

We would start our day with a very hearty three course breakfast, great coffee and then order our tradition taxi – example in the opening picture – roll down the hill while Havana woke up and revealed herself in full blown colour and chaos.

Ours days were spent walking so it was wonderful to return to the poolside at La Rosa take in the afternoon breeze. Maybe a Mojito or twenty……..

  2. What a wonderful place this was. Perfect introduction to wonderful Havana.

    Beautiful and comfortable house, wonderful food and drinks, fantastic owners and staff helpful with tips about Havana. About a 10 minute drive into Old Havana.

    Very rare for a B&B or AirBNB in Havana is the pool …… perfect for a relaxing cooling down after a hot day wandering Havana – with a Mojito, of course, or a wonderful cold local beer.

    Sadly we were only able to stay 2 nights … it is very popular and heavily booked.

    Would stay there the whole visit to Havana the next trip if possible. ***** 5 star Recommendation from me
