Located in the streets that give it its name and in a privileged area of ​​the capital, the site will have one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city and will be one of the best luxury hotels in the country.

The French hotel chain Accor, the largest hotel group in Europe, and the Cuban tourist group Gaviota take over the project, which is already being executed by the local company Inmobiliaria Almest. It will have 250 rooms, ten levels and a commercial gallery that will connect Malecón and San Lázaro streets.

The hotel will have the Sofitel So La Habana label, the brand of the highest range recognized internationally for its excellent services for demanding tourists, who will enjoy accommodation with maximum comfort and exclusive services.

Prado and Malecón will welcome people from all over the world who will not arrive in tour operators or through the existing sales system in Cuba. They will be individual clients who will make their reservations live. The prestigious French company Accor, with more than ten hotel brands, has been in Cuba since 1995 and with this new hotel aims to expand even more in the archipelago.

The Packard: Very close to there, just a few meters away, just at the corner of Cárcel and Prado streets, is the second of these hotels: the Packard. If you decide to visit it sometime, you will have a privileged location a few blocks from the Central Park, the Capitol, the Obispo Boulevard and the Floridita Restaurant Bar.

But above all, you can visit the Parque de los Enamorados or the Almendras park, right next to the hotel, where a popular legend weighs. All those who enjoy a sunset in one of its banks will find a good love. The project, started in December 2015, is also executed by the local company Inmobiliaria Almest and the International Economic Association (AEI) Unión de Construcciones Militares (UCM) - Bouygues, a world-class construction company that will be managed by the hotel chain Spanish Iberostar, from an administration contract with the Cuban group Gaviota.

Expected to open in August 2018, it will have 10 levels and 321 rooms, distributed as standard, three types of suites, four luxury mini suites and nine corner suites. The Packard Hotel will be distinguished by the transparency of its facades. Level 0, accessible from Prado and Cárcel y Genio streets, will have a lobby, a cigar bar, a tapas bar, a gourmet restaurant, a shop, a piano bar, multipurpose rooms, a patio and cores and public elevator services. as well as several stairs for the evacuation. The first level will be a double level 0 strut with team areas. In the second, there will be the buffet restaurant and a first room area towards the southwest corner.

Levels three, four and five include room areas, technical areas, SPA, beauty salon and medical post.

Here will be the infinity pool to the north, the terrace, snack bar, gym and another area of ​​the room. The four upper floors will accommodate the rooms facing north over the bay and the sea, and to the south and west over the city. The last level, thought like a real plant, reserves rooms with VIP reception.

The Regis: following the Paseo del Prado, right at the corner that crosses Calle Colón, you can see what the Hotel Regis will look like. Next to it, an elegant and front-facing perfumery, the historic theater Fausto, which was once the protagonist of a part of Cuban culture.

A distinction of what will be a luxury site is that its architects and designers have given a very modern vision to the building that already existed in this place. They took advantage of the old style of construction but at the same time they gave it touches of contemporaneity. Unlike the rest that is built today in the area, El Regis in its design has stood out in the patinejos. These spaces have been optimized so that natural light is used to the maximum and gives the installation a peculiar and unique charm.

With a category of boutique hotel, due to the characteristics of the original building, it will have 61 rooms, among which stand out a suite in the attic and five suites. It will also have 50 standard rooms and five standard rooms with terrace, distributed in six levels.

Havana was chosen as one of the seven wonders of the modern world. By 2030, it will double its current accommodation capacity for tourism purposes, backed by the growing flow of visitors in recent years.
