We visited one afternoon, just to have a look around. It is a very old and famous hotel and you can see in its hay day it was the place to stay. Its like going back in time, and in the bar area there are lots of pictures of old movies star and present celebrities who have stayed or visited... More

Very pretty hotel from the outside. Stayed in 1 room for 3 nights that was not particularly clean and the toilet seat was broken. Returned to the hotel at the end of the holiday and had a much better room but still not particularly clean with all types of hair in the bath! Good variety at breakfast but difficult in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in September 2016. Chose this hotel because of its history. Probably would have chosen another more central hotel as everything is 10 cuc's in a taxi. Great history about this hotel, rooms a bit tired, staff a little unfriendly, possibly because they just see so many people for just a couple of days at a... More

This hotel is very historic and worth a visit. The hotel tour is worth doing as it gives a lot of information on times past. The lifts are an attraction in themselves. Breakfast buffet was average for Cuba drinks hit or miss depending on barman. Carlos in the history bar is excellent. The room was clean and cosy with adequate... More

Great atmosphere, amazing surroundings. This place breathes history. Beautiful building. Ok pool. Second pool was closed. Great outside bars and good sea Views from the room (depending on what side you are on obviously). Personnel is generally friendly, however bot everyone is all that competent. The concierge desk do their jobs well. Rooms are big enough and tidy although they... More

We stayed in the Nacional for a week in August. Arrival was not great - no-one willing to help with our luggage and the greeting at reception was not very friendly. There was a mix up with our booking which resulted in much shuffling of paperwork which resolved itself eventually but we were made to feel it was our fault... More

This hotel in some ways depicts the Cuba before the revolution. We stayed in room 626 which was a huge disappointment as it was small with an extremely small bathroom. The real positive is the outdoor area looking towards the ocean. This provides a great location to people watch, drink mojitos and smoke cigars. Also the hotel has an excellent... More

This hotel is a national landmark of Cuba and extremely beautiful from the outside. This is my second time to stay here and I still HATE this hotel. Upon entering in lobby you feel like you are in Grand Central Station in New York. It is very crowded and busy. We were lucky to have the Executive Floors with it's... More

I stayed at the Hotel Nacional for 3 days whilst in Havana, a great stay. To anyone looking to book, the hotels location is a 10 minute drive from Old town and central Havana where all the touristy bits are, and will cost you around 7cuc each way, you can walk it but it will take around 30 minute.

The lobby and common areas of the hotel are beautiful and historic. The outdoor bar and patio areas have lovely landscaping and views. Nice pool areas. This is a good location right on the Malecon. The rooms themselves were nice but nothing special for a hotel so famous.
