Hotel Iberostar Grand Packard 5 * + opened its doors in 2018, a luxury hotel in Havana which features a spectacular location at the beguinning of El Prado, a gorgeous promenade with over 1Km of amazing mansions and buildings including the old Spanish Casino, Havana's Opera House, the Capitol Building, Hotel Inglaterra and more.
Originally opened in 1911 under the name Hotel Biscuit, it changed its name in 1931 to Hotel Packard, as the American automobile firm. Its reopening in 2018 made it the second hotel with a 5 * + category in Havana.
Being located at the beginning of the Paseo del Prado (or Paseo de Martí), where this avenue joins Havana's famous Malecón promenade, the views of the sea, the entrance of the bay and its forts, especiallly El Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro (more popularly known as "El Morro") are quite outstanding.
The pool is on the top floor so the best views can be enjoyed from there while sipping a mojito or daiquirí from the bar.
Its rooms, 321 in total including 4 suites, are modern and chic with very high standards and the possibility of choosing the Cosmos Level services, a VIP area offering special services and perks.
There's also a SPA, gym, shops and a variety of restaurants and bars.
The main reason for choosing this hotel is no doubt its proximity to everything worth seeing in Old Havana, as well as the luxury and comfort of its services. Guests can easily visit all the main attracions by foot or taking a taxi, coco taxi or horse drawn- carriage.
An elegant accommodation option in Havana from where almost everything is at hand.
