About Hotel La Rusa

City Centre Hotels
Historic Hotels
If you are looking for a charming hotel in Baracoa, one of Cuba’s lesser known gems, then you will enjoy La Rusa – particularly if you are a Che Guevara enthusiast.

Hotel La Rusa has changed little since Che Guevara stayed in the early 1960s & you can stay in the same room if you book in advance. Other famous ex-guests include Errol Flynn, Fidel Castro & Raul Castro.

La Rusa was established by an immigrant who fled the Russian Revolution in 1917 & there are plenty of reminders on its walls. Despite refurbishment in 2009, the hotel remains rather basic with a small lobby & reception. However, it is clean, well appointed & looked after by great staff. La Rusa hotel has a small bar & restaurant which serve decent quality food & drink, particularly the mojitos & coconut desserts. There is also car parking & a laundry service for guests.

Whether you are interested in its famous ex-guests or not, La Rusa is a charming hotel in a great location, where you will be guaranteed a warm welcome & a comfortable stay.

Details of Standard Room  
La Rusa has 12 standard rooms with mainly twin beds, as well as air conditioning & satellite TV. The rooms are well kept by friendly maids, though some guests have found their bathroom a little small. Some of La Rusa’s rooms have outstanding sea views, though be warned as there can be leaks from the spray of larger waves against the nearby sea wall. But the views more than make up for this & you can lie back in bed experiencing the same sights & sounds as those famous former visitors.

Guide to Baracoa
Cuba's remote Baracoa really has it all, for plenty of awe-inspiring experiences. It has Cuba's biggest rivers, mystical jungle mountains, biodiverse tropical wildlife, hillside plantations of coffee & chocolate (cacao), secluded beaches, coral reefs, the longest history, ancient traditions, vibrant culture and general spellbinding charisma.



Baracoa City is situated on a bay close to the eastern tip of the island of Cuba where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Founded in 1512 by Diego Velazquez, Baracoa is Cuba's oldest European settlement. Things are pretty laid back in this town and the abundance of palm trees along this coast give it a South Pacific feel.

The fact that this was an important Spanish outpost is evidenced by the three impressive forts: Fuerte Matachin, now housing the museo municipal; Fuerte de la Punta, now refitted with a restaurant; and El Castillo de Seboruco, which is now a pleasant hotel.

On calle Antonio Maceo, you'll find people queuing for hot chocolate drinks in the baking tropical sun at the Casa del Chocolate, opposite is a lovely Casa de la Trova, holding rooftop performances and you can't forget to visit Plaza Independencia (it is the focal point for community life in the city), Yunque de Baracoa and The Stone Zoo, which comprises a multitude of stone animals.
