HO­TEL NA­CIONAL DE CUBA THE BEST VIEW TO EN­JOY CUBAN CUL­TURE

Excelencias from the Caribbean & the Americas - - GLAMOUR -

De­clared Na­tional Mon­u­ment and World Her­itage by UN­ESCO, this Span­ish-style eight-story prop­erty is one of the most vin­tage ho­tels in Ha­vana. Opened in 1930, it fea­tures a welle­quipped busi­ness cen­ter, cur­rency ex­change of­fices, nine meet­ing halls where trans­la­tion and in­ter­pre­ta­tion ser­vices are pro­vided, a floor for ex­ec­u­tives with in­stant check in ser­vice and cy­ber­cafés.

The charm of the pres­i­den­tial suite –two be­d­rooms, a huge ter­race and panoramic view of the city– has en­thralled celebri­ties from the arts, sci­ence and pol­i­tics.

The ho­tel in­cludes three restau­rants, a ca­sual cafe­te­ria and three bars, as well as two swim­ming pools, a ten­nis course and a gym with sauna, massage ser­vices and live shows.

The prop­erty re­cently nabbed the World Travel Award 2017 –the Os­car of the in­ter­na­tional travel in­dus­try–, a distinc­tion awarded by the main travel in­dus­try pro­gram to high­light the ex­cel­lence of prod­ucts and ser­vices.

Out­stand­ing boldface names of world his­tory have been se­duced by this ma­jes­tic ho­tel, such as the Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Win­ston Churchill, moviemaker Steven Spiel­berg or the man who dis­cov­ered peni­cillin, Alexan­der Flem­ming.

When walk­ing through its cor­ri­dors, we can presently feel the pres­ence of great Cuban cul­ture fig­ures, like fab­u­lous mu­si­cian Com­pay Se­gundo, whose bronze sculp­ture in­vites us to en­joy an au­then­tic Cuban cigar.

That is what Cuba and its peo­ple are all about. Au­then­tic­ity, rhythm, his­tory… cigar, rum, cul­ture. This na­tion has left its mark in the world. But don't you let other peo­ple tell you about it. Live it by your­self, start­ing with this ho­tel, a gen­uine ex­pres­sion of Cuban cul­ture.

THERE IS NO BET­TER PLACE TO OF­FER ONE OF THE MOST GOR­GEOUS VIEWS OF HA­VANA. PERCHED ON A HILL A FEW YARDS AWAY FROM THE SEA, HO­TEL NA­CIONAL DE CUBA IS A DELUXE PLACE TO FEEL COLORS AND SOUND OF AN ONE­AND-ONLY CUL­TURE IN THE WORLD
