We spent a lovely couple of hours drinking mojitos (among other cocktails!) on the roof terrace here. The view is stunning, and is a perfect place to lose yourself in Havana! The staff were lovely and service was excellent. Remember to have some CUCs with you to pay the lady looking after the loos!!

While doing your walking tour of Havana call into this Hotel which is so famous for the time that Hemingway spent here. Take the lift, an old fashioned cage lift to his room and just get that feel that he is still there sitting at his typewriter penning For Whom the Bell Tolls. The hotel is pastel pink, and the...

The only reasons to stay at this hotel are Location ( right in the center of everything) and the view from the top floor (6) restaurant and bar which was amazing at sunset and early in the morning. We had spent 8 days driving around the island from Santiago de Cuba back to Havana and had experienced the best and... More

Judging by some of the other trip advisor reports I have just read, I think we must have stayed in a different hotel to them. We found the check in staff friendly and they offered to book the early morning taxi for us. The room was fine, no trace of the damp reported elsewhere, the shower worked OK with reasonable... More

we were booked into this hotel as part of a tour of Havana and Trinidad. We paid for superior hotels (4 star) and unfortunately our advertised hotel wasn't available so we ended up at the ambos mundos. The hotel appears to survive off its reputation as being the hotel in which Ernest Hemingway stayed. As other reviewers have already stated... More

We were on a cycling holiday so had experienced a variety of hotels in Cuba, but this was my choice for the worst hotel. The location is the best thing about the hotel. You could search for other hotels and save yourself the time of writing a negative review like this. Stayed in room 403. Water leaked through the light... More

Despite the comments from other travellers and the ranking I chose this hotel based on location. I didn't expect much and got less. Positives are hard to find - the lobby (ignoring the tatty sofas) is nice and compared to everything else the towels were quite nice. Everything else is pretty bad. The room smells of damp that is being... More

Stayed here after checking out of "Hotel From Hell" Quite basic, but in the city and it was buzzing as festival time. Room comfortable, roof terrace restaurant, bar area. For a 3 night stay comfortable and clean. Hemingway used to stay here too, and there are lots of tourist visits.

I and my tour group stayed here for several nights as part of a Cuba tour. As many others have stated, the location is terrific - it is in the heart of Old Havana, just off of Plaza de Armas, and walkable to many other sights. The location is the best part of this hotel. The rooftop dining area is... More

This hotel had a unique character which captured the spirit of Havana- centrally located, we could hear the salsa music in the street once a day as a parade went past. The old fashioned caged elevator was beautiful. My room was spacious with beautiful old fashioned wooden furniture which didn't match. The food was adequate rather than great, the air... More
