Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski

Constructed between 1894 and 1917 as the first European style shopping arcade in the country, this handsome building is now a high-end hotel, located in the centre of Havana that faces the Capitolio building and the Gran Theatre.

Elegant colonial archways frame shuttered windows and walls of vibrant colour, many of which are adorned with contemporary, local artwork. The 246 rooms make the most of their traditional features with high ceilings and some with French doors opening onto balconies. Choose between a peaceful inward facing patio room or a room overlooking the streets of the old town. Take a swim in the rooftop pool by day or sip a mojito at the poolside bar as the sun sets over the city in the evening. There is a cigar lounge, a variety of restaurants and bars and a spa and fitness centre. The roof-top pool and restaurant offer spectacular views over the city centre.


Located in Havana Viejo, amidst the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the old city.

Why we like it

The panoramic views from the rooftop restaurant and bar are wonderful, as are the Cuban cocktails, made using only the best local rum.
