Located right on the edge of old colonial Havana and the site where modern buildings were built in the 18th century as a sign of accelerated urban development in Cuba stands the Gran Manzana Kempinski hotel, the first five-star plus luxury hotel in the island country.
Since the property made headlines in May 2017 when it opened its doors, it has gained prestige by conquering an increasingly challenging market and meeting the growing demand for high-quality services claimed by clients from all over the world.
“With this type of luxury accommodation, new customers will come to our country which is always ready to show its cultural and historical legacy as well as its rich heritage,” said Manuel Marrero, Cuba’s minister of tourism.
The building has six floors. It is an architectural relic of Cuban eclecticism built between 1894 and 1917 along the remains of the ancient wall that guarded the city of Havana for centuries.
