This legendary little hotel was established by a Russian émigré (and princess) and former dancer, Mima Rubenskaya or "La Rusa de Baracoa". She had settled in Baracoa after fleeing the Revolution in 1917 at age six. There she is in black-and-white, framed on the wall in the lobby. She converted her three-story home into a hotel – the Miramar – in 1953. Supposedly it hosted several illustrious guests, among them Errol Flynn and the poet Nicolás Guillén; and over the years La Rusa became active in Cuban revolutionary politics and later played host to Che Guevara, and Fidel and Raúl Castro.
Until recently this big yellow house right by the sea didn't really live up to its storied past. But major restoration works were completed in 2009. So right now La Rusa Hotel is looking quite swish.
