stopped here for a drink on the roof top bar after walking around old Havana, elevator was under repair - the 6 flights of stairs was worth it for the best view of the city and best pina colada!! Staff were super friendly and service excellent

This is a great place to be based for a stay in Havana, this 1920's hotel is well located in the city, easy access to all main areas. OK the hotel needs a little cosmetic work, but hey this is Havana and it all adds to the Cuban experience. Good Coffee/bar area on the ground floor, but the roof terrace... More

Built in 1924 on a site that previously had been an old family house...It is a frequent tourist destination because it was home to Ernest Hemingway for seven years in the 1930's. His room was on the 5th floor. Hemingway rented the room for $1.50 per night until he transferred his winter residence to Key West,FL. Hemingway began his novel... More

On a professional research trip with an organization that put together all activities and hotels, I stayed at Ambos Mundos for 5 days. During my stay the main elevator was being repaired leaving only the small service elevator in the back of the hotel available for guest to use. I must say the reception desk is very accommodating and helped... More

So Hotel Florida sent us here due to 'air co problems' and so we spent our 1st night in Havana at Hotel Ambos Mundos. The room was ok, rather dark, small and decorated completely in brown, but functional although you couldn't swing a cat in the bathroom. But the next morning, arriving at breakfast on the roof terrace with stunning... More

This is a nice hotel based in a great location in Old Town Havana. The lobby area and rooftop terrace are very pretty however the rest of the hotel is fairly dated. Breakfast was nice and they have a left luggage service. We paid 125e in total for a triple room and it was definitely worth that. The area around... More

Great location in old Havana. Hemingway lived on 5th floor (3 rooms) many years, our room was on that floor where they have made a small museum of Hemingway's rooms. Nice music bar on ground floor. Elevator one of oldest in Havana) was not working so had to walk or take small service elevator that was a pain. Nice and... More
