The hotel is nice. It's old but well-kept and clean. Each floor is a little different. We stayed in two different rooms (one at the beginning and one at the end of our Cuba trip). A/C worked well, plenty of room, nice bathrooms. Staff was always ready to help. The pool was nice. The restaurant for breakfast buffet had lots of options including filtered water.

We have zero complaints about this hotel. Yes it is old, but there is a ton of history there. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Breakfast was phenomenal. Wait staff was attentive. Concierge was super helpful and called local restaurants to make reservations for us. Cigar shop was amazing. Mariela was our maid while we were there and she was so sweet and friendly and did a great job making sure our room looked great when we returned each evening. I highly recommend this hotel.

Thank you very much for your report, it is our satisfaction that our clients prefer us, leave happy, return and also recommend through their experience so that other travelers know about the hotel. The ¨Hotel Nacional de Cuba¨will be 90 years old next December and there is really a lot of history to tell in this "enchanted castle" as described by an important Cuban writer. That is why one of our main attractions is to show our heritage values ​​among others as example , the cannons that belonged to the Battery of Santa Clara located in the hotel garden. We are encouraged to continue improving our services reading that you were happy with your room and breakfast. Much more satisfying is reading positive comments about the service from our staff. They are very committed to the service of the hotel and have been working here for a long time. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to your return in the future. Please , take care , we wish you good health for you and your family.

This is an iconic Havana location, and not to be missed. There’s no problem about non-guests visiting, and you’ll probably want to stay for a drink anyway. It’s great to sit above the Malecon with a cocktail, which will cost little more than you’ll normally pay elsewhere in Havana. As well as taking in the views, take a chance to see the huge gun emplacements, with guns manufactured by Krupp’s still in situ. Inside the hotel be sure to visit the area dedicated to the numerous famous guests who have stayed at the hotel, including Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner. This room also includes statues of Compay Segundo and Nat King Cole.

Good morning, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with other travelers. We are very grateful that you have chosen us for your stay in Havana. The ¨Hotel Nacional de Cuba¨ is one of the iconic places of Havana inaugurated in 1930 where we currently preserve the atmosphere of the initial years. We have 426 rooms including standars, suites and superior rooms and a wide range of services including restaurants, bars, swimming pools, nightly entertainment and a tour dedicated to telling the history of the hotel. External customers can also enjoy our offers. In normal times the offer of the Galeria bar is 24 hours and the mojitos of our gardens are the favorites of our clients as well as the mafia cocktail in the Bar Vista al Golfo where the History Gallery is located with the photos of the personalities who have visited us since 1930, some of which you refer to. The view is beautiful from our gardens, guarded by large canyons that are a World Heritage Site and belonged to the Bateria de Santa Clara in charge of defending this part of the Havana coastline during the colonial era. We hope you return and have a 5-point stay with us. Take care, good health, greetings,

This hotel was amazing! What a great location. The restaurants were varied and delicious. Especially enjoyed the Churchill bar. The grounds are well kept and an easy stroll. Don''t miss the tunnel tour, with it's main area of historical maps about the missile crisis, to the interesting, twisting tunnels.

Good morning dear nbellef, Thanks very much for your review , to read possitive descriptions is very important on this difficult times of sanitary crisis. As you say we are just located in front of the ocean , in the Vedado area, 15 minutes from Old Havana. Our hotel has several restaurants and bars where Cuba is our hallmark. We greatly appreciate that you have met and enjoyed our hotel, which is also a museum. On the tour we do every day except Sunday, we show and explain our heritage values and one of them is the Taganana cave, where there is the exhibition of the Crisis of October or Missile Crisis. It will be very pleasant for us to welcome you again at our hotel. Thank you

As all will be aware certain travel restrictions apply at this time. Our flights have also been cancelled and understandably so. We have booked a suite at the hotel for our time in Havana itself and prepaid the full amount. I have corresponded with the hotel on 5 separate occasions requesting either a cancellation or a voucher as we still will visit Cuba in the next 12 months if all is well. I have to date not received any correspondence re my request. All our other accommodation bookings in Cuba were unbelievably helpful with vouchers or cancellation without penalty. Poor service probably meaning we WILL NOT stay at the Nacional when we go.
