One might say that the Capitolio Nacional, Havana’s most singular, outstanding and historic building might present visual similarities to the Washington, DC Capitol Building.

With the aim to fill the city’s slight defense niche on the east side of Havana’s harbour, the Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña was constructed from 1763 to 1774 upon the order of the Spanish King Carlos III.

With high ceilings and light flooding in through French windows, there’s a feeling of space inside bedrooms. Silvery chandeliers hang over beds with comfortable mattresses. Aside from a statuette of La Girardilla (the symbol of Havana) and local pictures – such as one of a cigar-smoking Afro-Cuban woman in my room – there’s again not much sense of Cuba in the décor. Perhaps you don’t need it, though, when the balcony looks out onto daily life in Havana itself. The greatest difference between the rooms is whether it has a balcony, or it looks inwards into the central patio (entry-level rooms). There’s a feeling of space inside the bathrooms, too, which are surprisingly large given the central location, with a large mirror hanging over a sink that’s set in marble and a walk-in rainshower with a mosaic of more glittery tiles, with Kempinski’s own toiletries throughout.
