Security of your money

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 13, 2009

The location is ideal, though it's an extrememly noisy hotel during night. But of most concern was that at irregular intervals our money started disappearing from the safe within the room. We decided to leave only ceratin amounts of money in the safe and take the rest with us. Following our return to the hotel one day we found that even this money was gone. We were now convinced that there had been repeated theft, but on taking this information to the Head of Security we were strongly discouraged to make this information known. We encountered another couple who had experience the same thing. Until the Police resolve the case or the hotel take theft seriously I would encourage you to go somewhere else. I've previously stayed at the hotel Seville with a large group and there wasn't anycase of theft there.

Hemingway's favorite hotel in Havana

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 24, 2006

Ideally positioned two blocks from Havana harbor and the Malecon, just down from the daily artist's market with book and craft sellers in Plaza De Armas.
Could perfectly understand how come this used to be Ernest Hemingway conveniently home as its secs away from all the lovely bars like Floridita, Bodeguita del Medio, Dos Hermanos etc:) I wouldnt mind either:)
We loved the terrace on its roof - breathetaking views and magic in the air while the band plays the cuban music...

Avoid Ambos Mundos!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 8, 2006

Paid $180 for a double room on 26 December. No window, nowhere to hang clothes and the smallest double bed anywhere. The one elevator provides inadequate capacity for the volume of guests. A taxi was able to drop us at the door for arrival but the hotel is unable to arrange taxis to pickup at the door for departure - a serious problem if you have heavy cases or a lor of luggage. Breakfast is served on a roof terrace with a lovely view but the breakfast food is second rate. The only positive - the hotel does have an attractive lobby with an accomplished violinist and pianist a midday. The Sevilla hotel is the same price and is a much better hotel in every way. Avoid the Ambos Mundos!

Hemingway´s hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 1, 2005

Unique Quality: Built at the end of the 20´s in the 20th century is a building of eclectic architecture intimate and welcoming place that stands out for its interesting history.
At the beginning of the years thirty the american famous writer Hemingway stayed here. During his stay he wrote the first chapters of his novel For Whom the Bells Toll, because he said that this it was a good place to write. At the moment the writer's room is conserved with its memories and the restaurant Plaza de Armas makes his favorite meals.
There´s a wonderful cafeteria, the Roof Garden, located in the last floor of the hotel, with an exquisite barbecue and the best look from the heights. Its central location transforms it into an excellent place to admire the values of the old part of the city.

Directions: Near Plaza de Armas
