Ambos Mundos Hotel

Old Havana - Historic Center, Havana

Hemingway's favourite in Havana


Ambos Mundos

The Ambos Mundos Hotel is a Havana institution and an obligatory stop for anyone appreciating the historical testimony of the city. Starting the visit at the lobby, History of its illustrious guests exudes throughout, including the famous North American writer Ernest Hemingway, who began penning his novel “For Whom the Bell Tolls” at room 511 (today´s museum on his honor). Rooms are comfortable and have high French doors opening to some view of the bustling streets and the Harbor. Breakfast is served on the rooftop patio under shady arbors with a wonderful view over Habana Vieja; this is also a great spot for a refreshing drink. The lobby bar is quite popular, and features live music most of the day and much of the night.


The Ambos Mundos Hotel is located at the intersection of Mercaderes and Obispo commercial streets, in Havana´s Historic Center, declared by Unesco as World Heritage Site. It is also very near to the General Customs Offices and the Terminal of Touristic Cruises.
