Hotel Armadores de Santander

Hotel Ambos Mundos


Hotel Ambos Mundos The eclectic Ambos Mundos Hotel was built in the late 1920’s and it is an intimate and cozy place that stands out because of its history. In the early 1930’s, American writer Ernest Hemingway lived here for a few years. In room 511 he wrote the first chapter of ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’, as he found the hotel ‘a good place to write’. Nowadayas, the room the writer keeps some of his belongings and the Plaza de Armas restaurant serves his favorite dishes. Besides, the hotel has a wonderful rooftop bar-restaurant that has exquisite grilled food and the best of the views. The privileged location of the hotel, in the heart of Old Havana, makes it an excellent place to explore this beautiful area of the city.
The hotel is a popular stop on the tourist trail and a good base for exploring La Habana Vieja. The rooms are simple and somewhat spartan, but they are clean and comfortable, and most have high French doors opening to some views of the bustling streets. A few even have small balconies. Most folks love the compact old, iron-grated elevator running up the inside of the central staircase; however, it’s woefully inadequate to meet demand, so if you’re staying on an upper floor, you might find waiting for it frustrating. Breakfast is served on the rooftop patio under shady arbors with a wonderful view of the harbor and La Habana Vieja; this is also a great spot for a refreshing drink any time of day or night. The lobby bar is also popular, and features live piano music most of the day and much of the night.
