Although the hotel was delivered in June 2021, it is only now getting ready to welcome its first guests following the recent reopening of Cuba's borders to tourists after the pandemic. Located in the heart of old Havana, on the Paseo de Marti, this 5-star hotel with 63 rooms has undergone a complete renovation. The historic building dating from 1860 has been extended and refurbished, including the addition of extra height to accommodate a large terrace with a pool and bar. The Telegrafo is also the first LGBT hotel in Havana. This project is one of a series of historic building renovations in the centre of Havana including Hotel Manzana, Packard, Paseo del Prado, Grand Hotel which have been delivered, along with the Metropolis, Corona or Régis hotel projects currently underway.

After three years of work, Bouygues Bâtiment International Cuba has just delivered the Grand Aston hotel in Havana. The 5-star hotel consists of two 25-storey towers with a total of 600 rooms.

The renovations or complete construction of these hotels in Havana reflects the country's ambitious plans to develop tourism. The Cuban Ministry of Tourism recently restated its objectives: to increase the island's hotel capacity to 95,000 rooms in order to exceed 6 million yearly visitors by 2030. Havana, whose old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, currently has a shortage of hotel capacity, with only 12,000 of the country's 60,000 rooms.
