We have visited this hotel as a stop on a Havana Tour. They do indeed make very nice mojitos and we have had more than one. Lovely! We haven't stayed as a hotel guest so cannot comment on the rooms. They also have a very nice live music played during the afternoon.

Not sure I would stay here having read some of the reviews, but stopped at this iconic building whilst on an outstanding privately guided walking trip around Havana - organized by the excellent Cuba Select Travel. This is where the great Hemingway lived and worked for many years pre the revolution. Riding the roof terrace and the cranky open lift... More

A warning should be posted staying at in this hotel built in 1924. Visit it for a drink not more. If you suffer from mold-allergy, the hotel is stuffed with it, it is all in the ventilation system! Our pre-booking by internet was for two nights, so everything was payed for. We arrived late and got our room. Took a... More

I have stayed here for a few days at a time over the past couple of years - and I tried again to book for 2014, but the hotel was full. I suppose, trying to book it again must mean that i liked it here! I do, but comments about it being dated are true; but so are comments about... More

I'd booked three nights' stay for myself. I arrived with my Cuban daughter and her mother. I wanted to place my luggage in the room before heading out. My daughter was going to accompany me to see the room and drop the bags. She was disallowed by the hotel staff as she is 'Cuban'. The attached letter suggests otherwise and... More

We visited Ambos Mundos in July 2014 as part of our "Hemmingway trek", and as many reviewers have already commented upon, we really didn't stay very long. I must say the air conditioners in the lobby bar worked masterfully, as they provided a welcome respite from a steamy Havana day. Otherwise we walked in and around the lobby, took some... More

Everybody in Cuba tells its so great! Just don't do it. Expensive, loud and dirty... Building and Lobby quite nice. Rooms are poor and over time. Nice terrace with bar and restaurant on the roof. Drinks are ok, food expensive and bad.

Visited here for drinks and snacks during a 3 day visit to Havana from the Cayos. Amazing roof bar with panoramic views of Old Havana and excellent Pina Coladas served in hollowed out pineapples! And we have to mention the live band, Grupo Son Pelegrin, who were superb. I bought a CD of theirs and still listen to it a... More

What a shame! This hotel could have it all, the history, the location and the premises. But it seems that the Hemingway-connection has curbed any initiative or energy to maintain this hotel. I visited this hotel ten years ago and was back this summer and nothing seemed to have changed. Im not even sure if they had washed the floors... More
