One of Havana’s most renowned buildings for its history, its splendour and what it represents for the marvelous city, is the Hotel Inglaterra.

Its privileged location in the historic quarter, in front of the Central Park and very close to the Capitol, allows visitors a comfortable and profitable route through the colonial part of the Cuban capital.

In its rooms have been hosted by many prestigious personalities in the island as the independence leader Antonio Maceo or Jose Raul Capablanca, world champion of chess.

Among the international figures who visited this hotel, one of the most noteworthy was Winston Churchill, an English politician who worked as a war correspondent in 1895.

The Hotel Inglaterra boasts an eclectic style, which is especially appreciated in the facade decorations, and has architectural elements of the last century, which give it elegance and magnanimity.

The design of the menu menu of the Restaurant Colonial of this hotel and the decoration of the interior of its rooms are due to the work of notable Cuban artists, who donated their works to decorate this legendary place.

Since 1981, the formerly named Café Escaurizao, later Le Louvre, was declared a National Monument.

The Hotel Inglaterra has endured the passage of time and the onslaught of weather to continue in the heart of the history, culture and tradition of the capital of the Cubans, its visit means traveling to colonial Havana and enjoying an unbeatable experience.
