Lincoln Hotel: A Meeting Place in Havana

The Cuban capital, which treasures many historic and cultural traditions that are complemented by excellent beaches, has become the main tourist destination in the Caribbean Island, providing a wide range of offers for leisure.

The centuries-old city – which covers an area of 172 kilometers, is divided into 15 municipalities and has a population of more than two million – was described as "the City of Columns" by Cuban renowned intellectual Alejo Carpentier. Havana's Historic Heart was declared a World Cultural Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The Cuban capital, once called Village of San Cristóbal de La Habana, is one of the most relevant exponents of colonial architecture in Cuba, marked by a notoriety that dates back to the late 16th century, and by singular characteristics despite a strong Spanish influence.

Also called the Bastion City of the West Indies and the Key to the New World, Havana is a unique living museum showing the most diverse architectural styles, which represent the different stages in the development of the historic city.

Those who visit the city can walk the streets in the historic center, and with that goal in mind, visitors stay in hotels close to the city's heart, where a one-of-a-kind architectural environment complements modern amenities for leisure.

One of those establishments is the Lincoln Hotel, which opened in 1926 on Galiano Street and which has become a meeting point between the capital's modern sector and the colonial area.

Located at walking distance from the famous Malecón (Seaside Promenade), the hotel has always offered excellent services in a cozy and intimate atmosphere.

The Lincoln Hotel has 134 air-conditioned rooms equipped with telephone, satellite TV and safety deposit box, and offers a wide range of gastronomic options in its two restaurants, bars and nightclub, in addition to medical services and taxis.

The hotel has welcomed world-renowned personalities, including the famous car racer Juan Manuel Fangio, who stayed in Room 810, which was turned into a museum.

The Lincoln Hotel is near the Museum of the Revolution and the Prado Promenade, as well as hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, shops, and Old Havana, which is characterized by its Spanish-style fortresses, squares, mansions, cobblestone streets, and its active social and cultural life.

Havana's defensive system, which includes the emblematic Castle of the Three Kings of Morro, comprised nine big fortresses that became the most outstanding exponents of their kind in Spanish-speaking America, according to experts.

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.
