Spent 4 nights here in February as part of a wider tour of Cuba. Excellent location in the heart of old Havana. in the pedestrian area, so short walk to hotel, but porters normally meet taxis. Reception was efficient, but lacked warmth. You can change money here, but at about 10% worse rate than a bank or cadeca. Also have...

Place needs better customer service and the room I got didn't have a working Safe, and had spider webs. I had to beg them to come change the sheets since the room felt dusty and smelled like it had been closed off for a while. The beach setting is nice and the events and music are fun.

We arrived here from the Cayo's on the coast at 11.30pm after a long 6 hour transfer from the coast. We were spending two nights here before flying home after three and half weeks travelling round Cuba. We were told that we had the last room as the hotel was full and we were taken to that room that nobody...

Didnt stay here -just stopped in for a drink and wifi. Apparently supposed to be Hemingway's Hideout? but was absolutely awful. Cocktails were very watered down - the pina colada was like dishwater and overpriced. Likewise the mojitos were no where near the standard we had elsewhere in Havana. Don't bother going in for a drink if you only want...

This hotel certainly survives from it links with Ernest Hemmingway, every day from 10- 5 tourists stream through its doors. The room we had 311 had no windows & as we arrived at night were totally shocked the following morning to not have any daylight, we were still in time for breakfast!! The buffet breakfast is served on the roof...

Although we didn't sleep here, we did visit this beautiful old hotel. We browsed around the floors and bars and had lunch on the rooftop restaurant. The floors are really cool with kinda like an inner courtyard in the middle where these long vines are growing all the way down from the top. There is a sky light over it...

Ambos Mundos has an unbeatable location in Old Havanna and is well within walking distance of many Havanna tourist must sees. The hotel is old, faded, a little worse for wear, as is most of Havanna. The rooms are comfortable, and a number have very nice views, especially from the fifth floor. Breakfast is served at the rooftop bar on...

Surly female receptionists for whom the words 'please' and 'thank you' don't exist. Inside room was dark (obviously), musty and the sockets didn't work. Outside room less musty, sockets worked but loo didn't! Food very average. Male staff much friendlier.

We came here because we heard its cocktails were great. We eventually found the place then had to find our way to the rooftop (which is up lots of flights of stairs, and the lift had a very long queue). It took quite some time to get any of the waiters attention, but when we did the service was then...

My son and his friend stayed at this hotel ( my wife and I at another), and it was generally a disappointment. I had a major problem when I needed to make a small change in the reservation. Getting a response took over two weeks, multiple phone calls to London/Turkey and Havana and multiple un answered emails. I finally got...
