Time Line

  • 1901 - Juan Ramón O'Farrill, the mayor of Havana for those times, he had transformed into civil the –until then military- municipal band of music, that which constituted an outstanding fact for the development of this cultural manifestation in Cuba and, specially, a crucial stage for the future concert bands.
  • 1940 – 1950 - The third storey of the current construction Hotel Palacio O'Farrill is built.
  • 2000 –The restoration process of the Hotel Palacio O'Farrill for the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana.
  • 2005 - Expert Bjorn Ericsson, of the bar The Fummoik of the Hotel Claridges of London won the first place in the IV Edition of the Habanosommelier Competition (selection, court, ignition and combination of cigars), followed by Cuban Orlén Guerra, of the Hotel Palacio of O'Farrill of Old Havana (Habaguanex S.A.).

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Palacio O'Farrill in Old Havana. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2018
