Mengenai Hotel Packard
The Hotel Packard located on the Paseo Prado, the most important street in Old Havana, was erected by a US company during the 1920’s hotel boom in Havana, following the establishment of hotels such as the Hotel Saratoga. The Hotel backs onto the stretching canal of the Havana Bay and the looks out onto one of Havana’s most important structures, the Forteleza. Situated in one of the most important parts of the City, the Hotel Packard invites clients to discover the rich colonial past of Havana and delve into the development and transition of the country from the Pearl of the Spanish Empire to the Revolutionary State of Cuba.


Over the past two decades, the Hotel Packard has lain in ruins in Old Havana, the glorious facade reflecting the grandeur that used to exist in place of the shell of such a magnificent structure. Currently occupied by viny trees and plants, carefully wrapping themselves around the beautiful scaffolding, the Hotel Packard still reflects the splendor of it’s time, combined with the slowly decaying charm of Old Havana. The structure, seen as one of Havana’s most important, was given a new lease of life by the two Spanish architects Oscar Garcia and Teresa Luis from the years 1997 to 2003. The two architects developed a floor plan and architectural reinforcement plan for the building, however this was then passed to architect Rafael Moneo to complete and see through. Construction of the building has still not commenced.

The new hotel plans aim to integrate the Hotel’s original charm, coupled with new and striking luxury strands to firmly reinstate the Hotel Packard amongst Havana’s most luxurious establishments.The design incorporates the Museum of Cuban Music History, a performance and practice facility for music, as well as a two story jazz club on the corner of the site. Along with musical benefits, the Packard will also house retail spaces, a world class restaurant, performance spaces, exhibition spaces, spas, stretching swimming pools, music gardens and conference rooms. The hotel will consist of 300 rooms, making it one of Havana’s biggest hotels. The three types of rooms available shall be: one bedroom loft style rooms, two bedroom apartments and one bedroom, one level apartments. Each room will feature a front and back porch, one of the signature elements of the Hotel’s design.

The project will be financed by Spanish hotels company Iberostar as they seek to add another five star, classic building to the list of hotels they are currently running in Cuba. The brand currently contains hotel Parque Central, the only Iberostar hotel in Old Havana up to now.

The city eagerly awaits to see the reconstruction of this wonderful building, ensure you are the first to experience the space and its history when it is reopened!

Guide to Old Havana
The heart and soul of Havana is the old town Habana Vieja, declared a Heritage of Mankind Site in 1982 by UNESCO. It was keen to preserve the beauty of its architecture and promote the historical importance of its role within the region.

The following are just some of the interesting places to visit: Plaza de Armas, centred around a statue of the patriot Cespedes and emcompassed by shaded marble benches and second-hand booksellers, is the first public square built in the city. Plaza de la Catedral is perhaps the most beautiful square in the Caribbean which is surrounded by examples of the finest baroque architecture in the country. El Templete, small neoclassical temple which marks the spot where the first Mass was said in 1519. Castillo de la Real Fuerza is one of the oldest forts in the Americas, it holds modern art exhibitions downstairs and the battlements afford good views over the harbour. Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, the seat of government and governor's residence was transferred from the fort to the built. The presidential palace and then the municipal palace until Castro seized power it is now Museo de la Ciudad de la Habana. Museo de Arte Colonial, fine palace constructed in 1720, its yellow courtyard and little-altered architectural features are complemented by a large collection of 17th- and 18th-century furniture. Calle Obispo is Old Havana's most important and smartest thoroughfare, pedestrianized with missile heads as bollards.
