Excellent hotel. Exceeded my expectations. Beautiful lobby, 24 hour money exchange , outdoor space relaxing with bar service and expresso coffees available. Rooms were clean and adequate. Safes in each room closet. Meals available and very good served at hotel. Location not walkable to old town Havana, but a cheap can ride away.

The Hotel Nacional de Cuba is a historic luxury hotel located on the Malecón in the middle of Vedado, Havana, Cuba. It retains much of the atmosphere as it did in its heyday of the 1940s and 1950s when it was the playground of the Mafia and such luminaries as Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Ernest Hemingway could be found in...

We traveled with Roadscholar on what we consider the best trip we have ever taken. This hotel was built by the gangsters and had many famous Americans that stayed there. The hotel has been maintained and it is a beautiful place. The staff was very welcoming and our daily breakfasts were very good. The variety suited many different groups of... More

I went here with my then girlfriend(and now wife) and proposed to her whilst staying here. The staff were very good to welcome us with champagne and sweets. I loved the breakfast and the general grandeur and history of the hotel. Yes, it's a bit worn out but can't be too choosy when in Cuba. I loved it and it's... More

you would think that in this day and age that wifi and water would be complementary ...... not at this hotel! It is very very busy with lots of visitors and it is hard to get a seat at any of the bars due to the general public dropping in for a look around. Its easy to see why as... More

We were keen to visit Hotel Nacional after what we had read on Trip Adviser and also wanted to buy tickets for the Burlesque performance. We took a tuk tuk ride to the hotel and visited there twice for cocktails,the show and also took the... More

Didnt stay here but was advised that this was the hotel where we had to meet our holiday rep - so glad we did. The hotel is amazing - old Cuba with the atmosphere and gravitas of what I imagine to be 1930s Cuba. Have a coffe here or in the wonderefully kept gardens. The place oozes history. If you... More

This historic hotel offers a very beautiful decorum however rooms are old, dirty and noisy. Rooms and services are totally not aligned to the price range... Price for internet access is really a incredible comparing to average in Havana, 7-CUC per hour. Much better to go there and pay a visit than staying overnight Won't go back to this one

This hotel is beautiful inside and out. The gardens in the surrounding grounds are lush with lots of flowers, birds, and views. The rooms are clean and comfortable possibly newly rennovated. Queen sized bed, table with two chairs, bureau, TV, plenty of closet space and hangers. Be aware of street music which lasts until midnight.

An incredible iconic hotel. You must take the in house historic free tour. Superb location with grounds overlooking the sea, and very central for sightseeing. Superb breakfast buffet. Service very good and large clean well equipped room on eight floor with comfortable large bed. The nature of the Heritage accreditation means there is much aged character, and not to be... More
