Hotel Marques de Prado Ameno

Travel back in time to the eighteenth century, as you walk through the interior courtyard, surrounded by the well taken care of simple and elegant decoration. A recently restored aristocratic mansion, which boasts the three key points s of colonial architecture (courtyard, pillars and blinds) to ensure a pleasant climate inside the house even during the hottest summer day.
 
In this house the talent of Juan Francisco Manzano was born and cultivated, a black skinned boy, slave of the Counts of Prado Ameno, who ended up becoming one of the first Afro-descendant authors in the History of Cuba.
 
When you go through the door, out into the street, whatever direction you take, you will find history and stories. One block away you find Obispo Street, a commercial pedestrian boulevard that functions as the main street that crosses the historic center. Walk, just walk and let yourself be carried away by the giants that will dance on stilts; by the curiosity that is provoked in you by the books and old objects that are for sale in the adjoining Plaza de Armas; by the music that you will hear coming out of any shop.

Just two blocks away in the Callejón de Chorro of the Plaza de la Catedral you will find Doña Eutimia, one of the most prestigious private restaurants in Havana (it is necessary to book in advance). Consider also the excellent O'Reilly 305 menu or the New York atmosphere of 'El de Enfrente', located on the path next to two hotel blocks. Walking away from the hotel in the direction of the Bay is another must see option, the restaurant 'El Templete' is located on the avenue Avenida del Puerto.
 
Its safe bay and its proximity to the current of the gulf made Havana the point of convergence of the convoys of riches of the Spanish Empire, and the most fortified city became the gateway to and from its overseas colonies. One of the best-preserved historical centers of America, which has more than 900 buildings of historical value after five centuries of history. Declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, it is a melting pot of culture and traditions where centennial traditions converges with the latest global trends.
