Simple yet well-appointed and comfy rooms, very quite. The rooms are named after traditional Cuban songs. Bar on top could have better appeal but it is well-stocked. Did not try the restaurant as we had meals somewhere else. A good choice for the traveler in Trinidad

We arrived at this hotel after being on the bus from Havana. We arrived to be welcomed with fresh juice by the potter and he also took our bags up the flight of stairs.

This was the friendliest hotel we stayed in in Cuba. We received a lovely welcome and when we discovered that the safe in our room was broken, we were upgraded to a bigger room. Nothing was too much trouble and as the previous reviewers have written, their 'towel art' was fantastic. Those chamber maids have a great sense of humour.... More

This is my favorite hotel in Cuba - even compared to the famous Hotel Nacional de Cuba in Havana! Great location, clean rooms, lovely courtyard, terrific, welcoming staff and fun art made of towels each day. Food is good too.

The location was ideal as it was on the edge of the historical centre. Nice room and the 'bed art' with the towels made us smile! Friendly staff and breakfast was excellent. The rooms opened on to a balcony overlooking the pretty courtyard. The air-con was very welcome as was the large umbrella!

Our tour group stayed here 2 nights. Warm welcome. The rooms are spotless.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The small La Ronda Hotel opens onto Parque Cespedes and offers a value-priced budget alternative to the deluxe Iberostar a stone's throw away, while having the advantage of a heart-of-affairs location compared to the similarly priced Hotel Horizontes Las Cuevas up the hill. The concept is fairly simple: take a 19th-century townhouse, fix up the plumbing and install modern bathrooms, give the rest of the building a sprucing and open up to foreign tourists. Hotel Cubanacan (formerly Islazul) La Ronda is located in the centre of Trinidad which has been declared a world heritage site by the UNESCO. Nearby is the Romantic Museum, the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), the Santa Ana Church the Cantero Palace and much more. The 17 air-conditioned bedrooms are on two levels opening to an atrium patio with palms and potted plants. Furnishings are somewhat meager, and the mattresses and pillows are second rate. Nonetheless, the rooms are the equal of most private room rentals (the most popular options in Trinidad) in town. The high ceilings and colonial tile floors help keep rooms cool, and those facing south have tall French doors opening to balconies overlooking the lively plaza. Satellite TVs, telephones, small refrigerators, and in-room safes are standard. The small restaurant and bar here are charming, albeit simple. Continental and criolla meals are served. For a splurge, the ritzy restaurants and bars of the Iberostar Gran Hotel Trinidad are literally a 50-pace stroll away. La Ronda hotel has been recently renovated. ... more   less
