The Cuban capital, a tourist destination par excellence, relies on its work with a wide range of emblematic facilities linked to tourism.
The list of hotels has in its ranks the current Tryp Habana Libre, founded in March 1958 and turned into the most central and highest hostel in the city.
Initially administered by the US chain Hilton, it is now under the tutelage of the Spanish group Sol Meliá, and it has always been a Cuban property since 1959.
The 27-story building was jointly designed by the American architecture studio Welton Beckett and Associates and the Cuban firm Menéndez-Arroyo, and 28 million dollars were invested in its construction and equipment.
After a capital renovation, it has 572 rooms and several gastronomic services, nightclubs and meeting rooms, special history and privacy.
The establishment has rooms of about 50 square meters, a balcony and views of the city or the sea, and a series of amenities typical of a five-star hotel.
Among the novelties, there is a mural by the Cuban painter Amelia Peláez on the façade and artworks in its rooms by visual artists Alfredo Sosa Bravo and René Portocarrero, among others.
With an outdoor pool and sea views, at Tryp Habana Libre guests can enjoy the restaurant of the hotel, which also offers car rentals.
The José Martí International Airport is 9.9 miles from the hotel, while El Vedado is an excellent option for travelers interested in landscapes, tourist attractions and tours.
This neighborhood takes its name from the prohibitions that existed in the 16th century to open roads in that impenetrable area, which was covered with forests that blocked any hostile access to the village of San Cristóbal de La Habana.
The main area of El Vedado is La Rampa, five blocks that include, among its attractions, the famous Hotel Nacional de Cuba, built on a terrace that in colonial times was a strategic military enclave.
As a complement are the attractions of the city, which boasts a system of fortresses, with the emblematic Castle of Los Tres Reyes del Morro in front and a total of nine large buildings that constitute the most notable complex of its kind in Hispanic America.
Among those works, the Castle of Real Fuerza (completed in 1577) opened the way on the continent to Renaissance design in military constructions, with a style that predominated in Spain at the time of the Catholic Monarchs and was also called Elizabethan.
Also about 140 of the buildings located in the historic heart of the capital were built in the 16th and 17th centuries, 200 others are from the 18th century, and more than 460 belong to the 19th century, forming a full mix of attractions for the most demanding tastes.
