Culture & History
Located in the heart of the old city amidst UNESCO heritage sites, the hotel offers the perfect vantage point to explore a plethora of iconic sites including the National Museum of Fine Arts next to the famous Martí Promenade, the grandiose Capitolio Nacional and Gran Teatro de La Habana, the Havana Grand Theatre. Stroll along the area's main pedestrian artery Calle Obispo to ogle brightly coloured 50’s Cadillacs and meet friendly locals selling hand-made Cuban cigars, before ordering a mojito at Hemingway’s favourite bar, El Floridita, just a stone’s throw from the hotel. At Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana, you are also within walking distance to some of the city’s best music venues where you can sip sensational mojitos and Cuba libres and soak up live music. On return to the hotel, peruse the public areas dotted with pieces by contemporary Cuban artists, including iconic Havana images by Claudia Corrales, whose grandfather Raúl Corrales Fornos was one of Fidel Castro’s official photographers.
Dining & Gourmet
A variety of restaurants ensure a range of cuisines can be enjoyed at the hotel. Highlights include San Cristobal Panoramic Restaurant and El Surtidor Pool Terrace and Bar, both offering incredible views over Old Havana. In the evening, the glamorous Constante Bar – with emerald-green walls, tropical prints and a long gold bar – is an ideal spot for sipping daiquiris overlooking the famous El Floridita bar, while the Evocación Tobacco Lounge is perfect for a digestif, where you can sample cigars and rum overlooking glittering city lights and the sublime Capitol Building.
