Hotel Details


The historic city hotel was established in 1860 and was then located on Calle Amistad. Around 1888, it was relocated to its present position on the busy corner of Prado and Neptuno streets. In 1911 the hotel was completely rebuilt, and when it reopened it was regarded by the press of the day as the most modern hotel in the city and ranked amongst the top eleven hotels in Latin America. The hotel of today combines modern and colonial elements in its architecture to create a wonderful unity of present and traditional styles. On offer are a total of 63 comfortable guest rooms with excellent views out over the city. The inner courtyard with the original brickwork of its arches forms an interesting contrast to the new design features. The hotel has a large ceramic mural in the form of a collage, showing elements of Havana's colonial architecture and a fountain which appears to magnify the courtyard and its surrounding ruins.

Great view of the square

We loved our stay at the telegrafo.
room was clean and good size beds.
the bathroom was clean but the toilet seat was broken , also the ceiling in the bathroom was not installed properly. every time we opened the front door it made a loud noise. i guess it was the presuure.
although the hotel has wifi, the hotel does not sell internet cards, some hotels do sell them.(inglaterra)..i think they need to sell them in the telegrapho. also they need to have money exchange in the hotel.
the courtyard was very nice to sit and have drinks. and the restaurant was good for breakfast.
location was great, with the old cars out the front and good view from our room.

A pleasant stay at hotel telegrafo

I had a great stay at hotel telegrafo in june 2015. to start with, they let me check in far earlier than the set check-in time, without any extra payment, which was a pleasant surprise and really convenient. the hotel staff were always helpful and the room was clean and had everything i needed. breakfast was fine as well.
the hotel is centrally located in the main square, near a lot of the other major hotel, and a short waking distance to the pedestrian road, museums and other squares. it is also beautiful and very easy to spot!
