This was our third visit to Cuba and our second stay in Havana. We have had mojitos in the terrace bar here before so we thought it might be a good place to stay when we went with friends earlier this month. As the hotel is in the old town and there is no bus / taxi access we had...

While we did not stay at this hotel, we did visit the roof top bar twice during our week long stay in Cuba. We enjoyed the fantastic views and amazing Pina Coladas. Served in Coconut Shells, and only $5 CUC, they were the best that we found in the city!

Hotel ambos Mundas is a place to visit but not stay in old Havana There are much better properties in Havana proper (ten block walk away) The lobby is lovely with the old Hemingway photos and lovely statues and tile work The exterior is also worth seeing but the rooms are literally look like they have had no upgrade since...

We spent one night at the Ambos Mundos after spending 3 nights at the Telegrafo. After the Telegafo, this hotel was a bit of a comedown. The door to our room needed a bit shaved off the bottom, as it was very stiff to open & close. There was no hairdryer provided and the safe wasn't very safe at all....

Hotel Ambos Mundos is a historical hotel in Old Havana with a nice top roof bar. In every corner of the hotel you can see the tracks of Ernest Hemingway who lived in this hotel between 1932 & 1939 as his first residence in Cuba. The room 511 is still kept in its original form today and open to visitors...

I won't take points off, but the hotel is your typical older Havana property in the usual state of disrepair. Leaking faucets, stains and dirty walls and old 50s type furniture. That being said, the staff wasn't the friendliest, and it's on the busy Obispo street, so if your room faces that side, you will hear people, music and noise...

Having completed a cycling holiday staying in Casas we asked for a last minute upgrade on our last night. Agreed the price with our agent and taken there by taxi. Delighted to realise Ambos Mundos was the mystery hotel. Delight grew when we were taken to Room 406. This room is immediately below Hemingway's 511. It's a corner room with...

This was our first hotel in Cuba, because we wanted to stay in the old city, this was one of the few hotels that was still available . It is a beautiful building full of memorabilia of Hemingway. The rooms are with TV and a/c, with bathroom en suite, but a bit somber, Our view (room 418) was towards backyard...

The hotel is gorgeous and the historic value is wonderful re Hemingway's stay there. View from the rooftop is lovely but the food was awful Just go for drinks! The ability to use wifi is always a treat too.

We stopped here for several reasons, our airbnb was right down the street, it is in a happening area of Old Havana and Earnest Hemingway was fond of the place so it was on my list. The lobby has great, old tile and pictures, I wish that someone would explain that cleaning and maintaining pictures would keep them from getting...
