Not worth the money and the local area has little to offer. It's a 'guest house" run by countless staff and the owners show their faces, but nothing more. We booked the 'Penthouse' for a 4-night stay and only stayed one night. It was hugely expensive even at UK prices at just shy of £200 per night, and we were...

Lydia and Tony: I'm so sorry, but you have been building up troubles to avoid payment. You booked the most expensive room during high season in our property 8 months in advance, and 1 week before the arrival date you wrote me that you had no enough money to afford it: that's what's all about. Eventhough, we were so kind...

It was a dreamy photo on Airbnb of one of the blue rooms at La Rosa that caught my eye and sparked the idea of going to Cuba. I can't say enough nice things about La Rosa de Ortega and the totally amazing hosts, Sylvio and Julia. The staff is also very awesome! Our room(s) were all truly lovely. (they...

Beautiful, pristine, and very comfortable property outside of Old Havana. This property is like a B&B rather than a Casa Particular. It is a 10 minute ride to Old Havana and a taxi will cost $7-10 each way. At the property they will call for the taxis for you. Returning back was a little difficult finding for lots of the...

This is a unique one-of-a-kind B&B for many reasons. If you review the numerous accommodations available in Havana here on Airbnb, you won't find a rustic, well furnished and upscale site better than La Rosa de Ortega. The house is built on multiple levels, with a couple of small chalet-type rooms built as add-ons.The high end furniture, many are antiques...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 stays at Rosa's. We chose this casa because of the good reviews and its location near to the airport. The rooms are very comfortable and come with a fridge (in other casas the fridge was fully stocked whereas this one was empty). The outside space is rustic but comfortable, complete with outdoor dining area and...

If you are visiting in Havana, you cannot stay in a better place. All the rooms are incredibly clean and beautiful. There is a lovely patio area where breakfast is served.

We stayed here for our last night in Havanna and we could not have picked a better place!!
