My partner and I spent two nights at this hotel at a cost of just over $500 CDN. Our room was on the 5th floor and quite noisy in the morning. It sounded like we were in the kitchen immediately above us. Bring earplugs! The breakfast on the rooftop was included in our rate. I know that Cuba is not...

We only spent one day in Havana but stopping by the hotel to enjoy a Hemingway Daiquiri was a must do. An easy walk from the port, soak in the history. His favourite bar nearby, the Floridia is also a must. You won't be disappointed.

I do recommend the terrace restaurant with nice view, and the Hemingway Room with small collection of his belongings accompanied by a brief but informative presentation of his experience in Havana. I did had difficulty with one of the personnel. We decided to go to the hotel lobby to get a drink about 8pm, while we are waiting to meet...

This was a very quaint old place to visit. Getting into the lift which is still manually operated by the attendant gives you an idea of what is to be expected. Lunch date is simple but very tasty. I settled for a simple meal of rice and black bean soup which was simply delicious and cost $2 in total. Great...

This hotel is amazing, theire elevator has an old feel with an attendant which was really cool. I loved their restaurant at the top, the view was breath taking and the food was really good. I absolutely loved their paella!!!

This hotel is in downtown Havana. It is where Hemmingway stayed before he built his country home. Great for Americans. Safe, clean and in the heart of the city. The roof top deck was beautiful. City and sea views. There was shade and sun. Great service.

We enjoyed a mojito on the rooftop bar while waiting for our turn to see Room 511 where Hemingway began writing "For Whom the Bell Tolls". The memorabilia in the room is rotated periodically and we saw the telegram sent nofifying him of winning the 1954 Nobel Prize.

The Hotel Ambos Mundos, built in the 1920's, was the hotel frequented by Ernest Hemingway, and it's rooftop bar and restaurant makes the best Pina Colada I've ever had, in a freshly cut pineapple. The views from the bar, over the old city and the harbor, are some of the best in the neighborhood.

There is a bit of a melancholic atmosphere reigning with the ageing paino player in the lobby. However, once you reach the roof top terrace on the antique elevator you will have a great view and might be lucky to actually see one of the big cruise ships passing through the narrow passage to the bay.
