This was our first trip to Cuba and our first stop hotel after arrival. Faded elegance best describes this wonderful hotel. Fantastic atrium for this place set right next to sea. Rooms huge with good air conditioning and plentiful supply of hot water. Two double beds in room. Reception staff very helpful as are rest of staff - they couldn't... More

Steeped in Cuban history - this beautiful unspoilt icon is a delight! It embraces its' times with Churchill, the mob & Sinatra with photographs whilst immaculately turned out waiters serve your mojitos......probably one of the best weeks of my life!. Old town Havana is a delight - only 5 minutes away - a window into a different world. Went on... More

This is a must visit for any visitor to Havana. The history alone is worth a drink at one it's many bars (pick one outside even on a rainy day). You feel like you've just walked back in time and expect to to Graham Greene or Hemingway on the bar stool next to you. It oozes old time charm. That... More

Staying at the Nacional is like stepping back in time. It is a beautiful, enjoyable place to stay. Elegantly appointed, magnificent grounds, good food, comfortable meeting rooms all make for a wonderful place to stay. It is not as modern as a comparable hotel (due to the economic problems) but it is still comfortable and fun. My 3 stays there... More

The hallway is impressive and reminicent of a busy councourse that leads to a beautiful garden and in the distance... More

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. Driving up the beautiful driveway we thought we were in for a treat, how wrong we were! The staff were extremely rude from start to finish, the rooms were small, in need of major revamp and smelt of damp. The food was the worst I've ever had anywhere in... More

The building itself is worth visiting. There is a terrace with a great view of the ocean with a bar that made the best Daiquiri I had in Cuba. The room is confortable but has nothing especial. The breakfast could be better for a 5 star hotel. The fruits had a bad aspect and the cheese used in the omelets... More

A must at least to visit if not to stay in whilst in Havana. It is from the 1930s, so it only didn't get a five as a few things reflect this - hot water worked in the evening but when I tried to run a bath in the morning the water was lukewarm. The interior is wonderful and you... More

The hotel is very big and it represents a special place in Havana where to stay. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The hotel has many restaurants. The breakfast is very rich and the room service is excellent. It is not very close to the center of Havana (Habana Vieja) but the touristic bus passes from there.

Excellent historical value, but poor quality rooms and minimal customer service. Room was smoky, dank and moldy smelling. The windows in most of the rooms have been blocked from opening (a recent change, due to "security"). We were hung up on many times when calling reception for assistance with the multiple problems we experienced (room safe stopped working, room key... More
