Manzana Kempinski was officially opened in Havana
Last Wednesday afternoon was historical for the Cuban tourism with the official opening of the five-star plus hotel Manzana Kempinski just across from the Central Park and near the Capitol in Havana City. 

With the presence of Cuban minister of tourism Manuel Marrero and Markus Semer, chairman of the management board and chief executive officer since March 2016 of the Swiss Kempinski Hotels SA, the six-story building with 246 rooms opened its doors the the first guests. 

“This day is a special occasion, as Kempinski resumes its presence in the Americas in a market ready for luxury services,” Semer said.

In addition, he expressed gratitude to Gaviota for undertaking the restoration of this historic building that now displays a modern style.

He also thanked the association between the Union of Military Constructions (UCM) and the Bouygues group, one of the world's leading construction companies, in the execution of the work begun in 2014.

Havana City historian, Eusebio Leal Spengler, noted the happy coincidence that the opening took place when the building celebrated its centenary and just two years shy of the half millennium of the Cuban capital, a marvel of the modern world.

This eclectic hotel is reborn in an environment where other buildings of great heritage value such as the Gran Teatro de La Habana Alicia Alonso, the National Museum of Fine Arts and the Capitol are rebuilt, said the intellectual.

Leal Spengler meant that the restoration of the old Manzana de Gómez constitutes a significant contribution to the reconstruction of the Historic Center, declared a World Heritage Site in 1982.

Manzana Kempinski has a variety of restaurants and bars, a public swimming pool, business rooms, a gym, a spa and a terrace with panoramic views of the city.
