  First refuge in Cuba

  A humble unnumbered bedroom located at the Ambos Mundos Hotel turned to be within a few hours the first Cuban shelter of Ernest Hemingway in April 1928. He returned there staying in the same room of the fifth floor of the building where he wrote a few years later (1928) “For Whom the Bells Tolls”.
