Havana’s “Little Hotel” For Parlementarians

Havana’s “Little ” For Parlementarians / 14ymedio

14ymedio, Havana, 30 December 2015 — Constructed at the beginning of
this century and known as the Tulip Hotel, it was intended initially to
house patients coming to Cuba under “Operation Miracle,” to undergo
medical treatments and surgery. As the number of people coming to the
island for these services declined, the place was left empty.

Now, the property has had to open its hundreds of rooms to the
market – with little success, given the ugliness of its architecture and
its distance from the historic district – and so it has been converted
into place that houses athletes, delegates to numerous congresses, and
deputies to the National Assembly of People’s Power during their
meetings at the Place of Conventions in Havana.

This week “the little hotel,” as it is known in the Nuevo Vedado
neighborhood where it is nestled, was closed to public access, and not
even pedestrians were allowed to pass along the street in front of the
facade. Meanwhile, its interior welcomes the 612 deputies participating
in the National Assembly’s last session of the year.
