Our Opinion
A great boutique style hotel that's right in the middle of Havana Vieja. It's charming with lots of ambiance.
Ernest Hemingway's favourite hotel and the most sought after accommodation in the city. Amidst Old Havana narrow cobble stone streets, this little jewel has been lovingly restored.
Location: In the heart of Old Havana. 25 min from Airport.

Fantastic Location ... Lazy Hotel

The Location of this hotel couldn't be better but the service, the attitude, the facilities and the attitude could do with a sharp kick up the bum. We are a family who travels a lot and generally we are really chilled and grateful for the fact that we can travel and go to amazing places. This place was such a disappointment in such an AMAZING CITY.No hot water for 4 days. 'Compute says NO' attitude to everything. Staff looked bored, uninterested and surly. Real bummer.

Only good fot location

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 is decent. The elevator still doesn't work (you can use a service elevator). No Free wifi but you can buy an hour wife for 5 CUC (as this is an internetspot you will see many tourists and Cubans sitting in from of the hotel). There was no hot water for 2 days. No safe in the room. Room was very basic. After all its a simple hotel which charges you a lot of money (The same amount where you could stay in castle in other cities).

Location Location and Ernest Hemmingway!

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 building I was where I was headed. The walk from the parking area to the hotel is long (applies to all old city hotels) so be ready to drag your suitcases over cobblestone but the reward is being in the old city -which is the place to be for at least a few nights. The Ambos Mundo located in the perfect spot to observe everything from street performers that will fool you into thinking they are statues, teens crowded around the hotel purchasing wifi cards undoubtedly posting their share of selfies to Facebook and just enjoying the vibe while sipping a Mojito or a Hemmingway drink listening to music in the piano bar. The hotel is 6 floors, the 6th being a rooftop terrace with amazing views of the city where meals are served. My room was on the 5th floor, next to famous 511 where Ernest Hemmingway lived from 1932-39. His rooms is now a small museum. I loved my little space, was in a single, next to the museum, I had a window with a view, a double bed and the tile floor was to die for; however, there was a bit of noise during any daytime hours because of the close proximity to famous room 511 so keep that in mind. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty. You can purchase WiFi cards for 4 CUC (Cuban Convertible Currency) at Reception which will by 1 hour of internet service that works in the lobby or rooftop terrace but not within the rooms. Loved the old vibe of the lobby, beautiful songs on the piano, towering ceilings, old furniture, cold drinks and warm breezes, it really was like taking a step back in time! Viva Cuba!

roof top bar is worth the trip

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
