Hotel Ambos Mundos
- What's Included
Our OpinionA great boutique style hotel that's right in the middle of Havana Vieja. It's charming with lots of ambiance.
We have been there just or lunch as it is a must in Havana (one of the Heminway spot!)!! What a disappointing lunch!Service very slow, food taste terrible, high price!In spite of this the roof restaurant was crowded of cruises group at fixed lunch menu!Never again!!
The rooftop bar is a nice place to stop for a drink while in Old Havana. Going up in the old lift operated by an attendant was an experience - like going back in time 50 years! There were a group of musicians playing when we were there, which made for a very nice atmosphere. Worth going for the extensive views across the city as well. In the lobby area are some old photos of Ernest Hemingway who stayed here in the 1930s.
Firstly excellent location and very historic. Main areas beautiful original style even the lift is ornate if not unreliable. Overall good but the rooms, suposedly updated 2 years ago are dark shabby and not very clean. There is a horrid musty smell in the room (301) The bathroom is really dated and some dubious stains on the wall and toilet area! Shower had no hot water for 2 nights. The rooftop restaurant has excellent views we only had breakfast which was a buffet style and although a huge choice it was pretty awful! All on display outside in the sun with no covers or refrigeration and weird offers such as cold burgers cut in half with cheese!? There is a chef who cooks eggs to order and some cereals and fruit. On the whole recommend for location and history but if this was refurnished 2 years ago I would hate to have seen it before !
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 known for its food, but this meal was particularly bad. Finally, our toilet broke in our room (it would not flush), and despite telling the front desk about this twice, it was never fixed. The location is great, but I think the hotel is skating off their Hemingway connection. If we did the trip again, we would have stayed in our casa the whole time. *Far* cheaper, more personal touch, and way better breakfast.
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.
