Lido Hotel: At the Gates of Havana

The Cuban capital, the Island's main tourist destination, offers a centuries-old history and a rich cultural wealth that consolidate its position in the country's leisure industry, providing a wide range of attractions that include excellent beaches.

Officially founded in November 1519, Havana has an advantageous position for trade and communications, in addition to being a clear example of Spanish colonial architecture in Cuba.

Those who visit the city can walk the streets in the historic heart, which was declared a World Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

With that goal in mind, visitors stay in hotels close to the city's heart, where modern amenities for leisure are complemented by a one-of-a-kind architectural environment.

One of those establishments is the Lido Hotel, which is 15 kilometers from the José Martí International Airport and is very close to emblematic buildings in Havana.

The Lido Hotel, whose cozy atmosphere and excellent services invite guests to repeat their visit, is at walking distance from the Galician Center (Grand Theater of Havana), the Museum of Natural Sciences, and the Asturian Center (currently the Museum of Fine Arts).

The hotel is also close to the Revolution Museum and the Prado Promenade, as well as many hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, commercial centers and Old Havana, with its castles, squares, mansions, cobblestone streets, and an active social and cultural life.

The Lido Hotel, an excellent place for tourists traveling alone, offers 65 air-conditioned rooms equipped with telephone and a private bathroom, and provides such services as barbecue restaurant, money exchange, safety deposit box and taxis.

Guests can enjoy a city that is considered a living museum, where several architectural styles meet, showing the different stages in Havana's historic development.

Havana's defensive system, consisting of nine big fortresses, including the emblematic Castillo de Los Tres Reyes del Morro (Castle of the Three Kings of Morro), is – according to experts – one of the most important of its kind in the Spanish-speaking Americas.

One of those fortresses, the Castillo de la Real Fuerza (Castle of the Royal Force), built in 1577, paved the way for the development of Renaissance designs in military constructions in the American continent, a style that reached its peak during the rule of the Spanish Catholic King and Queen, and which was called Elizabethan.

A score of museums, art galleries, theaters and major institutions, such as the National Ballet of Cuba, add to Havana's cultural attractions, since they host many international festivals on cinema, dance, plastic arts and literature, among other artistic expressions.
