The Nacional is a Havana institution, exemplified by the legion of famous guests who have stayed there over the years. The grounds and facilities are lovely, the breakfast buffet is amazing and the service is understated yet smooth. We arrived quite late in the evening and, after a short wait at reception, were assisted by a very helpful member of... More

We stayed here 10th - 17th February 2014. Check in took 20 minutes. We stayed in room 466. Room was clean although attention to detail could be better. Our room was made up brilliantly. Breakfast has a great selection. Do try the fresh Cubanita orange juice! Teaspoons can be difficult to aquire though but just ask. Friendly, helpful staff. Tourist... More

We have just returned from the Hotel National and had a lovely week there. We stayed on the executive floor and were greeted in a friendly manner on arrival. The room was lovely - we like the old furniture as it has character. Sometimes shower water was a bit cool but you accept some minor problems when staying somewhere so... More

A very interesting hotel, located a little outside the old Habana. Build by the Americans in 1930s, covers almost a block, it is biuld on rocks in front of the sea and offers some of the most beautiful garden with a bar and sea view. Visited by a lot of tourists for its history but it remained in many ways... More

The Iconic Hotel Nacional de Cuba is a hotel of 'two halves'. The architecture, elegance and opulence of the public areas are not to be missed and the unique sense of history of the famous and the infamous who have visited this hotel are never far away. The Salon 1930 Restaurant is the most opulent with amazing highly carved and... More

Agree with other reviewers that this hotel is trading on it's history. Fantastic building, lobby & gardens. Buffet breakfast was average. But the rooms leave much to be desired. Things like shower and aircon not working. Smell of damp. Clothes felt damp to the touch after one night. However, to stay one day would definitely be an experience.

We stayed here one night on our last night of a fortnight in Cuba. We arrived around 11pm due to a connecting flight from the Cayos. Walked in the lobby and it looks incredible. It's like stepping back in time. The detail everywhere is lovely. Check in was very slow. It's a big hotel, and only has space for two... More
