The Cuban capital, which has become one of the major destinations in the largest Antillean island, has a broad and varied tourist infrastructure that can meet the needs of the most demanding clients.
Big Cuban hotels go hand in hand with small first-class lodging facilities, including the inns in Havana's historic heart, and several hotels that gave the city a touch of distinction in the early 20th century.
One of those buildings is the Victoria Hotel, characterized by its elegance and tradition in a singular city full of culture and history, and accompanied by a colonial architectural style that is present in many tourist facilities.
Classified as Classic, by the Gran Caribe Hotel chain, the four-star Victoria Hotel is a highly demanded option for business trips, incentive tours, tourist groups, weddings and honeymoons.
Built in 1928, the facility was initially known as the Vedado Hotel. It has 31 rooms, including 28 doubles and 3 junior suites, with telephone, mini-bar, satellite TV and safe box.
As other four-star hotels, such as Sevilla and Inglaterra, the Victoria has welcomed many important personalities who have visited Havana during its seven-decade history.
Topping the list is Literature Nobel Prize Winner Juan Ramón Jiménez, who lived there with his wife for three years.
For executives and entrepreneurs who come to Cuba for business, the Victoria Hotel is an ideal place because of its discretion and privileged location in the Havana neighborhood of El Vedado, at a walking distance from many major state institutions.
Taking that into account, the hotel offers a wide gamut of professional services linked to business, such as office lease, computer rents, interpreters and guides, technical translations and the drawing up of documents, among other options.
The hotel can assist in the holding of meetings and conferences, providing logistic support and public relations advise, as well as drawing up and printing documents.
Gastronomy complements the hotel's offers, with a menu in which the Victoria Lobster and the María Pudding stand out as the establishment's flag dishes, accompanied by the best American and European wines.
After a day of hard work, entrepreneurs find optimal conditions to rest in the intimacy of this classic of Cuban hotels, whether in its quiet rooms or at the welcoming Bar Lobby, where they can enjoy a wide variety of international cocktails.
