Nigel's Special Hotels
Much is made of Ernest Hemingway’s predilection for staying at the Hotel Ambos Mundos. He wrote the first few chapters of ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ in room 551, which is now maintained as something of a shrine.

The rooms are comfortable and this also applies to the ground floor bar area, with its cosy, squishy modern sofas. The roof terrace has great views of the Plaza de Armas and environs; for the main advantage of staying in the Ambos Mundos is proximity to all the best and most beautiful parts of Old Havana.

Clients can derive a warm philanthropic glow from the fact that since the hotel is run by the Office of the City Historian of Havana through its company called Habaguanex. All its profits are reinvested in the restoration of the city’s historical centre.

From 15th June 2014 the Hotel Ambos Mundos will start renovation on their 5th floor. All rooms on this floor (including Ernest Hemingway’s museum room) will be closed. The renovation will last for at least 6 months.

Details of Standard Room  
The 49 Ambos Mundos’ standard rooms are quite small. Function is the keyword – these are rooms for people who only want to come back to their hotel to shower and change before heading out to the next adventure, for this accommodation is clean and comfortable but not in any way glamorous. The beds and furnishings are modern and the cream-tiled bathrooms are clean. 36 of the standard rooms have matrimonial beds and the other 13 are twin bedded.

Details of Junior Suite  
The 3 Junior Suites at the Ambos Mundos are the results of a very unsuccessful partitioning of what were previously attractive corner rooms. Now in each ‘suite’ a single forlorn day bed and a jumble of inappropriate ceramic interior embellishments are placed behind a looming wooden screen in a fruitless attempt to create an adequate seating area set apart from the bedroom. The bathrooms are larger than those of standard rooms and the views of the Palace of the Captains General and the port are good, but it is Cubaism’s opinion that these suites really don’t deserve their classification as such.

Guide to Old Havana
The heart and soul of Havana is the old town Habana Vieja, declared a Heritage of Mankind Site in 1982 by UNESCO. It was keen to preserve the beauty of its architecture and promote the historical importance of its role within the region.

The following are just some of the interesting places to visit: Plaza de Armas, centred around a statue of the patriot Cespedes and emcompassed by shaded marble benches and second-hand booksellers, is the first public square built in the city. Plaza de la Catedral is perhaps the most beautiful square in the Caribbean which is surrounded by examples of the finest baroque architecture in the country. El Templete, small neoclassical temple which marks the spot where the first Mass was said in 1519. Castillo de la Real Fuerza is one of the oldest forts in the Americas, it holds modern art exhibitions downstairs and the battlements afford good views over the harbour. Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, the seat of government and governor's residence was transferred from the fort to the built. The presidential palace and then the municipal palace until Castro seized power it is now Museo de la Ciudad de la Habana. Museo de Arte Colonial, fine palace constructed in 1720, its yellow courtyard and little-altered architectural features are complemented by a large collection of 17th- and 18th-century furniture. Calle Obispo is Old Havana's most important and smartest thoroughfare, pedestrianized with missile heads as bollards.
