Cuba’s first true luxury hotel brings European flair to old Havana. Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana houses 246 rooms and suites in a refurbished shopping arcade, which was originally built between 1894 and 1917.
This historic structure is surrounded by UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Capitol, and the Great Theatre of Havana – so there is no shortage of things to do right out the front door of the hotel. However, with the contemporary amenities and elegant atmosphere at the hotel, you might not want to leave.
The newly opened hotel features a stunning rooftop pool and a one-of-a-kind cigar lounge, where you can enjoy an expansive view across the old city. The San Cristobal Panoramic Restaurant specialises in Caribbean seafood, or sample a refined Cuban breakfast at Confluencias. You’ll also be able to indulge in state-of-the-art spa treatments for an even more luxurious experience.
A perfect blend of modern furnishings with traditional architecture and boasting a classic urban feel, the new Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana is the ideal destination for a visit to “Havana Vieja.”
