Hotel Telégrafo, Cuba’s oldest hotel first opened its doors to the public around 1860, some years after the first telegraph station was established in the country. The hotel moved to its present location in 1888. Circa 1914 the hotel rooms and restaurant boasted telephones that afforded guests both national and international telephone services, at a time when even public restrooms were a rare and novel luxury.
The creation of a third floor in 2001, when the hotel officially re-opened for business, marks the culmination of not only the restoration efforts that began in the late 90s but also of the vertical expansion of the building, which was originally one-story high.
Standing at the intersection of Prado and Neptuno, the hotel is a short walk away from the seawall, close to several and renowned places of interest in Old Havana – the Capitolio is practically next door – and well located for the exploration of the colonial part of the city.
Inside, only the high ceilings and supporting arches offer an inkling of the establishment’s past: the lobby, re-done in a colorful, eclectic style and tastefully appointed with modern furnishings, has the feel of modern art gallery. The style carries over to the large snack bar, where the remains of the original structure contrast artfully with the contemporary décor.
The spacious and well appointed rooms; the hotel’s privileged location and great facilities (including a classy restaurant) will satisfy even the most demanding guests.
