GRAN HOTEL BRISTOL
The Gran Hotel Bristol is a small hotel located in the heart of Old Havana and a member of the worldwide Kempinski hotel chain. Originally a hotel in Havana’s pre-revolution years, the Bristol, located in a Spanish style colonial building, has been fully restored to its former glory with an added modern twist.
Located in a part of Old Havana that was previously the centre of the city’s social and artistic scene with a very bohemian vibe, the hotel overlooks the iconic Capitolio building and is a short walk from many of the most important sights including the ornate National Theatre and bustling Parque Central. Behind the 1930s art deco style, the hotel is a popular choice for smaller groups looking for a unique and inspiring accommodation venue in Old Havana.
One of the highlights is the fabulous rooftop infinity pool and sun terraces overlooking the Capitolio building, offering fantastic views across the city.
The 162 rooms and suites offer one king or two double beds, are stylish and feature bright colours and contemporary furnishings, well-appointed bathrooms, air-conditioning, flat screen TV, safe and coffee making facilities. There are a choice of upgraded rooms offering views of Old Havana with enhanced facilities and the Gran Deluxe, Junior Suite and Suites offer a range of extras including small balconies, enhanced views, and living/meeting area.
There is a range of dining options, with some options available for special group events and parties. At the rooftop al fresco restaurant, guests can take breakfast or attend a group evening function. Take in the views over cocktails and tapas at El Diamante where local DJs regularly play Latin inspired chilled sets. The La Muralla Club serves a relaxed menu of burgers, chicken dishes and snacks along with a full bar and cocktails, often accompanied by local musicians and singers. The popular lobby bar offers traditional Cuban meals including unique poke bowls with local ingredients, and in the evening transforms to a fashionable hangout.
The Hotel Bristol offers two formal meeting rooms for small groups of 8 – 12 delegates, however all the meeting facilities at the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski sister hotel located nearby are available for groups choosing to stay at the Hotel Bristol.
Enjoy gatherings overlooking Havana at the rooftop pool area with catering and music or a DJ. The La Muralla venue in the lobby area provides a fully air-conditioned venue for events with creative catering and a choice of style. On an informal basis people can meet up during the daytime at the rooftop bars and sun terraces and drinks and a light menu is available. The lobby bar is a traditional focal point in the hotel and a great place for an informal catch up.
WIFI coverage is available throughout the hotel and there is also some basic business support for guests.
