Enjoy a mojito in the hotel where Hemmingway stayed. I didn't try the food but the atmosphere was great, full of olde worlde charm. Great view, pleasant live music and attentive staff. Shouldn't be missed!

The rooftop bar is a great spot for a happy hour drink after a long day in Havana. $3 mojitos and cuba libres.

The drinks were good, but the views of the city during the sunset were amazing. Also loved the lobby and lounge downstairs. One of my favorite places to kill time in Havana. Can't comment on food since I never ate here. Will be back!

We came here to stop for a quick drink, the staff were lovely and there was a live band playing! The views are well worth it! Pina colada was lovely!

Cubans are proud to be connected to the famous American writer Ernest Hemingway. The hotel has a room where he sat and composed some of his writings. You can look out his favourite window and take in the view he enjoyed. There is a typewriter he used and other memorabilia on display.

The view from the rooftop especially at sunset is lovely and differently check out the hotel out. But apart from the view avoid the bar. Drinks are overpriced, staff are indifferent and food is very average. So much could be made of this space on the roof with a good Cuban music but its a shame that instead of having... More

Do not go here!!! Tasteless food! Worst service!!! Only good thing was the atmosphere of the courtyard and people watching!!! There are 7,000 other restaurants on Barcelona. Go to one of those...seriously!!!

Never knew hot dogs were for breakfast. Good pastries and cheeses. Lovely breeze on the rooftop. Fun place for a drink at night, especially when the cannon fires at 9 across the harbor.

We had a great time on the rooftop deck here. The service was probably some of the best we had in Cuba. The food was just ok, but fine for a quick lunch. Come for Hemingway and the views and maybe stay for lunch.

This is just so cool of a hotel with an Epic history. There is a Hemmingway museum on the fourth floor is the room he always stayed in. It's worth the $5cuc per person to enter the museum on the fourth floor. After walk up to the rooftop and soak in the havana sun shine while having lunch.
