Gran Hotel Bristol by Kempinski Re-Opens To Welcome Guests Again, Cuba

Doors are re-opened again, at the Gran Hotel Bristol managed by Kempinski, after a longer hibernation period caused by the pandemic. Having opened first time in February 2020, the all-new Gran Hotel Bristol had to close after a very short 4 weeks opening period only, due to the health-related shutdown of Havana.

Located in the heart of Havana, just steps away from the National Capitol Building (El Capitolio) and within walkable distance of the hotspots and hidden gems of the Cuban capital, the newest addition of Kempinski Hotels welcomes first guests. Nestled between Old Havana (La Habana Vieja) and Centro Habana, Gran Hotel Bristol is the ideal urban escape for a modern traveller. Inspired by the legendary Art Deco style of the 1930s, 162 comfortable guestrooms' interiors are stylishly appointed with bright accents, clean lines and contemporary furnishings. Each room features a flat-screen TV, an individual control panel and complimentary WiFi.

Four unique dining experiences feature a rich kaleidoscope of cuisines and entertainment. Crowning Gran Hotel Bristol are two unique restaurants, El Capitolio and El Diamante. For a casual fare with impressive National Capitol Building views, El Capitolio restaurant serves breakfast and dinner in a stylish and bright dining room as well as al fresco on the rooftop terrace, whilst El Diamante restaurant and bar boasts panoramic views of Old Havana, serving Latin and Cuban tapas and light snacks throughout the day. As the night falls, a live DJ spins the latest tunes and sets the mood for the cocktail hour over the bright lights of the city. Pasos Perdidos lobby bar is an ideal spot to start or finish a day. Open throughout the day, the lobby bar serves a choice of daily continental or traditional Cuban breakfast with a freshly brewed cup of Cuban latte, also known as café con leche. Come nightfall, the trendy bar invites guests to indulge in a nightcap. Global cuisine awaits at La Muralla Club, which will open its door in late November. The menu will feature a wide selection of traditional and creative burgers, and chicken wings complemented by an extensive variety of beers and crafted cocktails. The night's entertainment will be headlined by a live jazz band.

A destination of its own, the rooftop pool is destined to be one of the most iconic spots in Havana. Guests can enjoy a refreshing swim with panoramic views over the city, or admire the reflection of the golden dome of El Capitolio while lounging poolside and sipping one of the handcrafted cocktails. For those who like to stay in shape whilst travelling, the hotel gym is fully equipped with the latest fitness equipment. Located on the mezzanine floor, the gym provides a modern space for an easy and convenient workout. Adjacent to the gym is a salon that offers a variety of professional hair and nail services, with dedicated stations for ladies and gents, and skilled staff to provide a seamless glam-up routine.

Strategically located on the mezzanine floor, the meeting room is designed for intimate meetings and creative presentations. The flexible space can accommodate up to 12 people and features a large LCD screen.

Steps away from the National Capitol Building (El Capitolio) and within walkable distance of the hotspots and hidden gems of La Habana, Gran Hotel Bristol has it all. 162 comfortable rooms and suites are stylishly appointed with bright accents, clean lines, contemporary furnishings and modern conveniences. Four unique dining experiences feature a rich kaleidoscope of cuisines and entertainment - from a wide breakfast spread in El Capitolio, relaxing moments in Pasos Perdidos lobby bar to delicious tapas in El Diamante and global cuisine accompanied with the notes of live music in La Muralla Club - while a rooftop pool boasts direct views of El Capitolio. Inspired by the Art Deco style of the 1930s, Gran Hotel Bristol is the ideal urban escape for the modern traveller.
