Had a 3rd floor room quite large with high ceiling and dark wood furniture. Smelt rather musty but was very clean. Aged facilities in the bathroom (you get better in Travelodge) AC worked very well but was noisy at full blow. Hot water ~ get up very early or leave your shower until after midday. Breakfast on the 6th floor... More

At the end of a long day touring Havana, we stopped here for while to enjoy some drinks and the view. Lots of Hemingway history throughout, vintage looking elevator and stunning views...Mojitos were pretty good as well ;)

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights whilst in Havana. We chose this hotel because of its history and it is just what you imagine of hotel in Havana to be. Location is great, right in the middle of the old town. Yes the hotel is old and has broken lifts and banisters and seen better days but this... More

Located in the center of Habana Vieja (Old Havana), home to Ernest Hemingway for 7 years back 1930's. The whole building itself is like a museum, embedded with lots of pics and belongs of Hemingway. Very close to Plaza de Armas and Castillo de la Real Fuerza, you may find some interesting small shops to buy your souvenirs and fancy/good... More

This should be one of the better hotels in Havana and for Havana Vieja. The price they ask for a room is just not worth it. Quality/price just doesn't match at all. The location is perfect to walk around Habana Vieja as you can walk everywhere. Service by the staff at the rooftop restaurant is good and the breakfast buffet... More

My favorite part of this hotel was the location in the old city. Havana is amazingly beautiful and the variety of architectural styles blew my mind. I know nothing about architecture, but loved the variety of style and detail. The hotel is a beautiful salmon color and my eye was drawn to it far before I knew it was the... More

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
