Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski


A fresh hotel overlooking the Capitol Building, bringing an ultra-luxurious choice to Havana.

In the heart of UNESCO-protected Old Havana, the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski is a Havana’s first ultra-luxury hotel set in the historic 20th-Century Manzana de Gomez building. Originally the first shopping arcade to be built in Cuba, the building is not only abundant with character, it also occupies a fantastic setting close to the impressive Capitol Building and the Great Theatre of Havana. Facilities include a state-of-the-art spa and fitness centre, and a stunning rooftop infinity pool with incredible views overlooking the city. This truly is the perfect place for an indulgent retreat following a tour of Cuba.

A variety of restaurants ensure a range of cuisines can be enjoyed at the hotel. Breakfast is served at Confluencias, the elegant dining room and terrace restaurant that has a delicious international-inspired menu. For a dinner with a view, you have the choice between two restaurants. San Cristobal is the beautiful top-floor restaurant specialising in delicious Caribbean seafood. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure a stunning panoramic city backdrop during dinner. The open-air El Surtidor rooftop terrace, pool and bar area combines spectacular sweeping city views with refreshing cocktails. If you fancy an after-dinner beverage, drinking spots include the chic Bar Constante and the Evocación Tobacco Lounge, a classic lounge where you can relax and enjoy an original Cuban cigar and delicious local rum.

The rooms here are all stylishly furnished, with large French windows, high vaulted ceilings and a contemporary white-and-grey design accented with vibrant Caribbean colours. The Patio Rooms overlooking the courtyard are a serene base from which to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy Old Town, while the Deluxe Rooms offer great views overlooking the old city below. The Gran Deluxe Rooms are a little more special, offering extra space and a larger luxury bathroom with a rain shower and separate bath. For even more room, opt for one of the beautifully designed Junior Suites or Suites.
