We had originally been undecided about whether we stay here for our first 3 nights and Parque Central for our last night or the other way around. We thankfully decided to spend 3 nights in Intercontinental Parque Central before we travelled to Vinales and one night in the Nacional after Varadero. The hotel is definitely worth a visit. It is...

We stayed here for 4 nights in August 16. Hotel facade and lobby are impressive and check-in was smooth enough. The corridors and rooms look a little tired and are showing their age and general under-investment but this is still THE hotel to stay at in Havana. The dining room seems a little chaotic but there are enough tables and... More

My wife decided to stay in the Hotel Nacional during our last night in Cuba , was a great beautiful Hotel with a lot of history . Small rooms but clean. Beutiful gardens where you can seat for drink facing the Malecon. We stayed during the carnaval days and the music inside of the rooms was so loud like outside

We visited the hotel with Cuban cousins to have a look around and begin to understand this island lost in time. We did not stay here overnight, but simply chose one of the several restaurants to have lunch in after walking around the grounds and sitting in the huge ornate lobby taking in the sights and sounds of a country...

I would recommend this hotel, it is a jewel in the city of Havana. If you are looking for a western style 5 star hotel you will be disappointed as while this hotel is luxurious it is a tiny bit run down in areas (like everything in Cuba). If you want to stay in a true Cuban institution steeped in... More

We visited this famous and old hotel to have a glance at the place where a lot of famous people stayed in the past. We had just a mojito at their nice outside terrace with big sofa's, just a pity that the cushions were of plastic.

Iconic. Legendary. Grand. These adjectives describe the feeling upon arriving at the Hotel Nacional. Unfortunately, it is also frozen in time. The decor is dated and maintenance is just the bear minimum. I still would not change my place to stay to any other place. It is in the most strategic part of Havana, a city and country in transition.... More

The hotel Nacional is absolutely beautiful. The staff are wonderful and very nice, really going out of their way for you. The scenery is just beautiful. I was amazed at the beautiful architecture. I could imagine the old Hollywood stars walking through. I would recommend having a mojito out on the patio area and a cigar whist gazing upon the... More

Hotel quite dated - rooms comfortable- ask for ones 5th floor and above. We got a good rate through travel republic which included breakfast. Although chick in is officially 4 you can come earlier and use pool. Residents have free pool towels. Snack bar has same food as one of the restaurants but cheaper. There is an exchange which 5...
