Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana

Ushering in a new standard of luxury amid Havana’s vibrant city streets and UNESCO status, Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana is a haven of serenity where you need only step inside to feel immediately at ease. A contrast to all that lies beyond its walls, the 246 rooms and suites take a contemporary approach in the heart of the Old Town whilst its restaurants fuse innovative cuisine with the intimacy of a Cuban paladar. Then, there’s Spa Albear by Resense where all but the present moment is forgotten. A stylish springboard into Cuban culture, a stay here is second to none.


Whilst it’s a just a quick 25-minute drive from Jose Marti International Airport, Havana is a place to arrive in style. With a fleet of vintage classic American cars on hand, simply sit back and allow Gran Hotel Manzana to get your stay off to an authentically Cuban start. Elsewhere, the famous Castillo del Morro is just a 10-minute drive away, while the Capitol and the Great Theater of Havana lie just on your doorstep.

Your Room

Away from the faded colonial architecture of Old Havana, Gran Hotel Manzana is a different story. Each of the 246 rooms oozes a contemporary glamor here with bold flashes of fuschia and turquoise complemented by brocade accents. From French doors and Juliet balconies, look out over courtyard and city views whilst sinking into your sumptuous king-size be or curling up in your spacious lounge. This is Havana at its most luxurious.

Why we like it

Whilst the city streets provide an intimate glimpse into the day to day life of the city, no view can beat that from El Surtidor. Set atop the rooftop of Gran Hotel Manzana, where the waters of the Bella Habana infinity pool seemingly flow into the skyline and the modern luxury of your surroundings fuses with the ancient grandeur of that which lies beyond, this is the spot to watch the sun go down. Refuel with a cocktail at Constante Bar, in its celebration of the 10 most awarded rum brands, before turning your attention to the original Cuban cigars at Evocacion.
