We went here early evening to watch the sun go down. The lift up is an experience in itself! The band stopped playing just after we arrived which is a shame but nevertheless we enjoyed a beer and the rooftop views. Worth the short visit.

It was very charming. Some things did not work well. If you go - try winter when the AC is not so key

This place was a gem - perfect for cocktails, cigar, sunset watching. Great patronage. The trip up in the classic cage lift with attendant was fun on top of it all. I'll be back!

Take the amazing 1930's original lift (complete with 'bellboy') to the rooftop to discover an altogether more civilised world! Great views of Havana, including the harbour. Super service. Serves drinks and/or food.

We had a great stop over at this bar, restaurant and hotel. We planned to go to the roof top bar but ran out of time. We felt Hemingway's presence in this elegant bar and would definitely go back.

Lobby bar often has a piano player. Also in the lobby are many photos of Hemingway. It was his place of residence for a time

The salmon pink Ambos Mundos is easy to spot as it stands on the corner of Obispo and Mercaderes. Our small tour group caught the rickety old lift to the top floor bar/restaurant to enjoy a couple of relaxing rum cocktails in true Hemingway style....More

I recommend Googling the hotel to get contact information. I'm sure it would be like making hotel reservations. I don't have any other information since we went on a sponsored excursion through the cruise line.
