HOTELS IN HAVANA WITH TRADITION
The hotels we offer you in Havana reflect in most cases their city's history
and will captivate you with their flair and gracious architecture. Start with
a trip back in time in a domicile, which drew such personalities as Enrico
Caruso, Ava Gardner, Winston Churchill, Hemmingway, or Al Copone. Some houses
were palaces for nobility in past epochs or the ruling houses of wealthy trade
families. These were later restored with great care and are now open for guests

Breakfast buffet with extensive menu
On December 30, 1930, celebrating with an enormous gala in Havana, the Hotel
Nacional opened and is still today the drawing card for famous travelers from
the Arts, Science and Politics. One of the first celebrities was Buster Keaton,
the legendary silent film star. Winston Churchill, whose preference for a particular
type of cigar created the term "Churchill", was also a guest at this
establishment. The list of illustrious VIP's is long and nowadays one can still
spot a famous face amongst the guests. For those who enjoy stylish elegance
and comfort, the Nacional is the best address in the city.
The spacious garden, more like a park, invites guests to enjoy the scenery
from the elegant, colonial style designed terrace and bar whilst peacocks
stroll across the meadow. Sipping at your cocktail or enjoying a Cuban cigar
adds to the pleasure of listening to the regular Live-Music being played.
Hint: try the refreshing, alcohol-free Café Granizado.
The hotel has several restaurants, bars and snack bars offering gastronomically
a first class breakfast buffet, with both hot and cold, local and international
dishes. We recommend the superb restaurant "Comedor de Aguiar" which
offers an extensive assortment of hand picked exclusive European and International
SPORTS AND RELAXATION
Two hotel pools provide relaxation from the hustel and bustle of the city. The
sports oriented guest is invited to use the tennis court and the nearby coastline
promenade allows for miles of jogging with a scenic view of Havana.
Located in the hotel, the Cabaret Parisien is famous for its excellent, lively and sparkling exotic show.
