A century ago, the press called the Hotel Telégrafo one of the city’s – and region’s – most modern hotels. A recent restoration from top to bottom has the Telégrafo vying for the same praise.
The overhaul of this hotel was purposely designed to combine the old with the new – take a look at the original, exposed brick arches, which contrasts nicely with the colourful, minimalistic Italian furniture in the reception area and bar.
The Telégrafo has always been pre-curve: in the early 20th century, the property had Cuba’s only telegraphic cable (hence the name) – making it a favourite of visiting businessmen, who could call New York directly from their rooms. Back in the day, this area of Havana was also a hotbed of intellectual and artistic activity, when luminaries from the world over came to Havana to write, jam, paint, and enjoy the inimitable café and cabaret culture. The painting in the restaurant (said to serve the city’s best burger), proclaims that once you’re a guest at Telégrafo, you’ll never stay anywhere else.
Located at the intersection of Prado and Neptuno, along with other hotels including Parque Central, Plaza, Saratoga and Inglaterra. The Telégrafo is just steps from the Gran Teatro and the Capitolio and within walking distance of the historic centre. The famous El Floridita bar and Museo Nacional de las Bellas Artes are just a stone’s throw away.
The standard rooms are comfortable, stylish and modern, with well-appointed bathrooms. Double glazed windows filter sounds of horn happy drivers and late-night revellers. Contemporary artwork adorns the walls.
