Although few hotels in Havana are drive-up convenient, it was a short walk across the market Square and down a cobblestone road. Ernest Hemingway stayed here often and every room on every floor pays homage to his free spirit. You can exchange currency at the front desk and have a nice breakfast buffet on the roof. The old iron elevator... More

This was a good location and my room was very nice. They are doing refurbishments there. Unfortunately the lift was broken while we were there. They offered the use of the service lift but it was tiny and many people were trying to squeeze in so I used the stairs instead - one way to get fit! Also the work... More

We didn't stay here but climbed to the rooftop bar for a great view of Havana while we hang around Obispo Street. Hemingway's room is on the 5th floor and it costs 2 CUC to see it. We were told everything was still original from his time but the room seems small from the outside and there were a few... More

Hotel Ambos Mundos is not the 4* hotel you would expect, even for Cuban standards. Granted it has a lot of history and amazing location, which makes up for it, but overall, I expected more. We arrived midday and got checked in swiftly, however the lift in the lobby is out of service, so we were shuffled into some back... More

There is air conditioning in the rooms, but they don't cool completely. There is no a/c in the common areas. Neither the hotel desk nor the bar can make change regularly. The elevator is a retro static display, meaning it is a long walk up five flights, because the guard at the service elevator in the back hallway frequently barred... More

My tour group stopped at this hotel for a mojito during our walking tour of Old Havana. It was cool to see all of the Hemingway memorabilia displayed throughout the hotel. The roof top bar featured a fabulous view and of course live music! While the mojitos were good, the service was a little sketchy. The wait staff might be... More

The main thing about this hotel is the absolutely fantastic location that it has, right in the centre of old Havana. Your taxi can not pull up outside the hotel so keep this in mind if you are bringing heavy cases. It was no problem though you can easily wheel your case across the Plaza to where your car is....

We did not stay at the Ambos Mundos, but did want to visit the Hemingway room. The couple of CUCs to visit the room is well worthwhile. While there, head to the roof terrace for a cooling drink and take in the panoramic view of old Havana. The day we were there, the lobby elevator was out of order --... More

Stayed here with a friend for 3 nights, the hotel is nice and the food was good,better than we had been led to believe. It's very busy with various tours passing through visiting Ernest Hemingways room and the rooftop terrace which has views over the city and where you dine.breakfast was plentiful and the food was good although we would...
