The hotel first opened on Amistad Street, but in 1888 it was moved to it's present location at the corner of Prado and Neptuno Streets. Just seven years after the founding of the hotel, a merging of Don Guillermo del Toro and Dona Pilar Somoano, merchandisers from Havana turned the Telegrafo into one of the top 11 hotels in Latin America. The Hotel Telegrafo had a fine reputation and many novel services that drew the clients from all over the world. The Hotel Telegrafo boasted a blend of the classic with the most modern facilities in Havana.

Having spent 5 days there last September, I dream of the day when I can return to this marvelous old historic town and enjoy the amenities of the Hotel Telegrafo once again taking a short flight from Key West to Havana. ;o)
