This is a lovely looking hotel- made famous because it was where Hemingway stayed before moving off the Finca Vigia. We went in to see the bar downstairs and a very helpful worker showed us to the top bar which overlooks Habana. It is a great spot for a drink. Don't know about

The lobby has a nice bar...but the best spot is on the roof. The view of the bay is quite nice as is the bar and the live band. There is a room here where Hemingway is suppose to have stayed...room 511.

This is the famous Hemingway hotel in Havana and we called in to see the hotel and have refreshments so our comments are limited to that experience only. The building is an architectural gem and so worrying to see internal water leaks damaging the fabric of the building.

Hello we were there in October. The only evidence of any damage was a slight damp smell when you first opened your room. Once the air circulated you got used to it quickly. Loveley hotel well worth the effort, enjoyed our stay.

I was able to get a Visa and flew through Mexico City. You can then rent cars from there. I never felt restricted but I was traveling with a Spanish speaking group. In showing my U.S. passport at various locations through Cuba, as it's required to scan in every hotel, I never got a comment about any restrictions.

"Just lap up the history...."
"Dont stay there!!!"
"We did not stay at the hotel but our impression was that it was clean, centrally located"
