Hotel Telegrafo

The ambience of the Telegrafo is definitely one of cosmopolitan hustle and bustle, as opposed to drowsy colonial charm. Located on the well-known corner of Prado and Neptuno streets (opposite a particularly good Italian restaurant) it overlooks Parque Central on one side and the elegant Paseo del Prado promenade on the other. Its pavement café area is perfectly placed for people- and vintage car-watching, and it has an attractive (and much quieter) central bar area in the courtyard where the remains of original columns made of coral limestone and brick contrast pleasantly with modern architectural detailing.

The Telegrafo has been a famous Havana institution since 1888 and during the early twentieth century it was regarded as one of the best hotels in Latin America. It is only a couple of minutes’ walk away from the Museo de Bellas Artes, the Capitolio and the Gran Teatro de La Habana where all Havana’s best opera and ballet is staged.

Recently it was restored, and is now run by the Office of the City Historian of Havana through its company called Habaguanex. All its profits are reinvested in the restoration of the city’s historical centre.
