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

We were on a day trip to Havana. Stopped in here because of the history of Ernest Hemingway having stayed here and frequenting the bar. Enjoyed a Mojito but did not go to the rooftop bar as it was pouring down hard while we were there. Loved the ambiance of the piano bar but would have much preferred if CNN... More

The rooms were damp and smelt of a old musty odour. We were there on a group walking holiday that was fraught with changed hotels and an almost aborted flight after an inferior Aircraft was rejected by our very excellent guides who thankfully had their fingers on the pulse.. Out of eight hotels we stayed in most were below standard.... More

I was placed at the Hotel after my reservation at Hotel Telegrapho was lost.This was over Christmas and my first trip to Cuba. After I read the Trip Advisor reviews, I was not happy. I stayed in several rooms while I was there and the ones on the inside do not have windows and do smell musty. But I was... More

Anosmia=loss of sense of smell. Well, I just came back from staying at Ambos Mundos for a week. The two rooms we rented both smelled HORRIBLY of mold and mildew. The smell made it hard to sleep, and I had to brush crumbling limestone off clothing in the small closet before wearing them. The same mold problem wasn't true for... More
