Guests at the completely renovated hotel can choose from 246 rooms and suites with soaring ceilings and luxury furnishings. The rooftop terrace and swimming pool, has views over the old town. There will be a spa managed by Resense, a choice of three restaurants, a lobby bar, cigar lounge, and a business center.

“The opening is a continuation of our pioneering spirit as the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana will be Cuba’s first modern luxury five-star hotel. And its location within a famous historic building currently makes it the most exclusive hotel project in Old Havana,” said Markus Semer, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Kempinski Hotels.
