O Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana
The Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana has been described as the urban centre of gravity that pulls together Old Havana. Located on a block unto itself, the Gran Hotel Manzana connects the four main streets of Neptuno, San Rafael, Zulueta and Montserrate and facing the mouth of Obispo. The building proves to be the gateway to the touristic and commercial heart of the city. The Gran Hotel Kempinski looks straight out onto the infamous cocktail bar and Hemingway hangout, the Floridita whilst being flanked by the beautiful art deco Bacardi building and the Museo de Bellas Artes. The construction of the Manzana de Gómez (this is the original name of the building) was started in 1890 and taken over by its namesake Andres Gómez Mena in 1894. The building named The Apple of Gómez, has since become the Apple of Havana’s eye.
Finally completed in 1910 Manzana de Gómez initially consisted of one solitary floor, stretching the length of the square. By 1918 the building had expanded to its current capacity, occupying a further four floors. The Manzana de Gómez was initially established as Cuba’s first indoor shopping centre, or ‘mall’. Forming part of the pre- Revolutionary tourist experience of Cuba, US visitors centred many trips around the shopping experience of the Manzana de Gómez, the splendour of which could have been compared to the Galerie la Fayette in Paris. Unfortunately the many passing turbulent years took their toll upon the facade and interior of the building. Post- Revolution the building maintained its commercial uses whilst also accommodating many government offices. The deterioration of the building resulted in the closing of the space and eventual total refurbishment led by the luxury Swiss hotel group Kempinski.
Kempinski La Habana’s planned opening was set for 2016, however the progress has been slightly delayed and opening has been now confirmed for late spiring 2017. The Kempinski group whilst maintaining the essence, rustic beauty and original detail of the building, are bringing the world class structure up to luxury hotel standards. Kempinski have been working in tandem with Gaviota S.A. and the country state-operated Habagüanex in this three year old restoration project. Once completed the Hotel will consist of 246 elegantly decorated rooms, all with internet service, two high class restaurants, a luxurious pool and terrace overlooking the spectacular Havana skyline, a fully equipped gym and 5 star amenities providing clients with the utmost comfort.
Srce i duh Havane su u starom delu, prigodno nazvanim Habana Vieja (Stara Havana) koji je zaštićen od UNICEF-a 1982 godine. Namera je da se zaštiti izuzetna lepota arhitekture i naglasi istorijski značaj oblasti.
Zanimljivosti stare Havane, izmedju ostalog, su: Plaza de Armas, trg sa mermernim klupama i bezbrojnim prodavačima antičkih knjiga, ujedno i prvi javni skver izgradjen u prestonici. Plaza de la Catedral je možda najlepši trg na Karibima –primer koliko barokna arhitektura može biti krasna. El Templete je mali hram, sagradjen u neoklasičnom stilu, gde je održana prva katolička misa 1519 godine. Castillo de la Real Fuerza je jedna od najstarijih tvrdjava na američkom kontinentu, a trenutno se koristi kao muzej moderne umetnosti. Palacio de los Capitanes Generales je nekadašnje sedište vlade koje je, posle pobede kubanske revolucije, preobraćeno u muzej grada Havane. Museo de Arte Colonial je lepa palata napravljena 1720 godine sa žutim predvorjem i zanimljivim arhitektonskim rešenjima. Ulica Obispo (calle Obispo) je najveća pešačka zona u Havani.
