Not very helpful for Americans staying in this hotel. No one spoke English. The rooms needed renovation as did the carpeting in the hallways. Stained and dirty. The view overlooking the ocean was the best part of the hotel.

For the standards of Cuba it was ok, even though the hotel needs renovation and many things in room need to be repaired. Great location (but you'll need to get a taxi every time you want to visit the city and it will cost about 5-10 CUC), friendly staff. Negative: stained towels

While preparing our trip to Cuba I read a lot about this hotel being a monument in Havana with a memorable history and many well-known guests in the past. Unfortunately this was definitely the most disappointing hotel we ever stayed in. Most annoying was the terrible smell on the different floors (we stayed on floor 3 and 4). The rooms... More

I was allocated a refurbished room on a high floor with view of the Caribbean sea which met the expectations of a 5 star room. The service at the hotel was also excellent. The lobby is quite old. The hotel also includes entertainment venues like the Cabaret Parisien and also organises events. If I go to Havana in the future,... More

We loved this hotel. The location is surely the best in Havana and the historical connections are peerless. Take the free tour, twice a day from the lobby, you'll get a great perspective on the history of the hotel, who has stayed there and even an interesting perspective on the Cuban missile crisis form the Cuban's point of view which...

Having recently returned from a two week stay here I feel the need to counter one or two perceptions. Perhaps some reviewers simply like to complain: a well-known English trait! Anyway, here goes. 1. The room was outstanding and not a tad dirty or smelly. 2. Breakfast buffet likewise with staff if anything clearing away TOO efficiently. 3. Staff were... More

Only stayed in this hotel for one night during an over night trip to Havana. Hotel looks spectacular from the outside! Lobby area and grounds are really nice too. However, our room wasn't up to standard. It felt soooo old (I know it is but it felt strange)! The bed clothes didn't even feel or smell clean and there was... More

This is one of my favorite hotels in the world. I've stayed in nicer hotels, sure. But the history and the atmosphere at the Nacional are out of this world. You walk through the massive front doors and it is like stepping back in time. The cool, dark lobby leads you to a terrace I dream about over and over.... More

For all its shabbiness and foibles I loved the Hotel Nacionale and would recommend it unconditionally to anyone visiting Havana. It's in a great location for exploring the beautiful old city and what it might lack in conventional five star luxury it more than makes up for in history, grace and atmosphere.
