Julia and Silvio have a charming home sitting on top of a hill overlooking surrounding neighborhood and Old Havana. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and have modern...

We booked our first three nights in Havana here and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were huge and so was breakfast! The staff were welcoming and friendly and the pool was perfect after exploring Havana during the day. The only thing to note is that it is a little way out of town so a taxi to/from would cost...

This is seriously a hidden gem, and way more like a B&B than the traditional casa experience. Property: A quite large property with modern rooms, an outdoor dining area, gym and massage facilities, and a nice little pool. Rooms were clean and spacious, with modern facilities, fridges, nice bathrooms, wardrobes, lounge areas, and safes. Didn't try the lunch/dinner snacks, but...

As frequent globetrotters and often times travel writers with familiarity with very ‘high-end’ accommodations, we chose La Rosa D’Ortega for our first visit to Cuba based upon its location, reviews, and general ambience via a website. We arrived as guests and, after ten days, departed as friends with several of our hosts. We cannot say enough about the ‘hearts’ that...
