Staying at a five-star hotel is one of the items on everyone’s bucket list – and some of them are definitely worth it. Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski in Havana fits the description, and it offers stunning views at the Cuban capital that can’t be found anywhere else.

This is actually the first luxury hotel to ever open in Havana, and it’s located in the very heart of this beautiful city. The building that houses the hotel first opened its doors to the public in 1917, and it served as the first European-style shopping arcade in Cuba back in the day.

Those days are long gone since the building undergone a complete renovation before becoming Havana’s most luxurious hotel. If you’re lucky enough to spend a night, you’ll be surrounded by the most stunning historical buildings of this vibrant city.

Havana’s Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski features a total of 246 luxurious rooms, including 50 suites. Staying in one of them will set you back by between $440 and $2.485 a night, but it’s certainly an experience you’ll never forget.
