Inaugurated as a hotel in 1885, It was one of the first to be established in the Villa de San Cristóbal de La Habana. However, the actual building dates back to earlier times, to 1836 in fact. It served as a residence for businessmen and Spanish aristocrats. Because of its proximity to the Port of Havana, for some time it also functioned as a warehouse and provided space for a number of small colonial-period shops and bodegas. In the 1930s, it even served as the headquarters of the Club Británico de La Habana.

In the vicinity of the hotel, you will be able to discover the newest privately-owned restaurants and bars, ideal to mix and mingle with the locals.
