My family and I spent two nights (5&6th Aug 13) at La Ronda which is a stones throw away from the Grand Hotel. We stayed at the Ronda because the Grand was fully booked and it resulted in our best night on holiday.
Food menu is limited but well made
Rooms are spacious and the Towel art is worth the visit
The music from Coincidence (a trio) is outstanding
Laundry service is reasonable priced and excellent, My son's clothes washed and returned on the same day!!!
Did not use the pool (at another hotel) as we spent two full days sight seeing
My son (20) and daughter (15) found Trinidad as the least interesting for them and spent their time on the internet but they liked the hotel and the staff.
Overall service very good especially from the barman called Juventino.
Why was it so special? It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we had a wonderful evening especially when the only people around 22:00 were my wife and the hotel staff when Coincidence came and did an amazing impromptu performance to help celebrate our anniversary. The occasion was made extra special when we were also joined by the off duty chef (who could sing), Eduardo (from reception) with a great voice (as well as being a song writer) and Juventino (the barman) who unsurprisingly could also sing. The only people who could not in the building was me and my wife! It was a great evening which we will never forget and will be eternally grateful for the lovely memory of that night and the warm "heartedness" of the Cuban people who all appear to be able to sing!!!
- 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
