The original Hotel Telegrafo first opened in 1888 but was completely re-built in 1911 when it was considered one of the best hotels in Latin America.

In more recent times the hotel closed down and fell into a state of severe disrepair before finally being saved by Cuban hotel group Habaguanex.

Although the original exterior of the hotel remains, much of the interior had to be re-built entirely from scratch. Certain remnants of the original interior were saved however and this juxtaposition, between the old and new, gives the hotel a stylish, design-led feel that would not be out of place in the major cities of Europe.

Rooms are amongst the best in Havana and benefit from the vast majority featuring exterior facing windows.

Facilities of the hotel are limited to an attractive bar and restaurant but, with its location in the heart of Old Havana, most guests are more than satisfied and indeed, the Hotel Telegrafo is one of the most popular hotels in Havana.
