This is a trip back in time to the glory days of Cuba before the revolution. A very large hotel with beautiful grounds and bars right on the waterfront. Very well kept up, as opposed to most other parts of Cuba. There is a Hall of Fame bar filled with hundreds of pictures of all of the world celebrities that...

Several restaurants, one that is open 24 hours, with basics like pizza and burgers. A great poolside cafe, with drinks and delicious food! Also really nice elegant formal restaurant among others. The hotel also has the...

At a rate of 300GBP a night expectations are certainly inflated but this is Cuba and then expectations have to be re-adjusted accordingly! I stayed here for 5 nights to attend an international conference that took place at the hotel grounds. The hotel was paid for by my employer and it was the obvious choice given that the conference took...

So many reasons to stay at this historic hotel. The hotel and grounds are worth a visit. The outdoor bar is a relaxing place to have a cool drink, visit, and enjoy the ocean breezes and views. Location is great, on the famous malecon, close to restaurants and entertainment. Rooms are musty and staff had some challenges checking in our...

This place really rings the bell for any trip to Cuba. Crown jewel. Definitely of a period, grandiose, large, more than full-service. The rooms were dated but fit with the rest of the ambiance. Biggest breakfast buffet in the world, probably. It was fun sampling the different offerings, some for folks from cultures other than ours. Several restaurants with varying...

When you walk into the Nacional, you take a giant step into Cuban history. You can breathe it. You can see it. You can feel it. No attempt has been made to spruce it up - how can you give History a makeover? Don't try. The rooms are clean, well maintained and... Historic. Don't expect anything fancy. The staff are...

I t is very easy to imagine this hotel in the hay day of the Mafia and it still is a great place to visit. I particularly like the La Barraca restaurant and the patios and lawn facing the sea. The food in La Barraca is always good while the service can be a little chilly at times.

Absolutely engaging atmosphere, great grounds. Most staff members were extremely courteous and helpful, especially when I was trying to solve a wifi access problem. The outdoor restaurant staff could have been much better.

My husband and I recently visited Havana and were excited about the prospect of purchasing quality Cuban cigars. After reading recommendations and feeling the reputable Hotel Nacional would be a trusted place to purchase them, we purchased a box of 25 Upmann No. 2. The box cost us approximately $230 US dollars. Upon opening the box, my husband was mortified...

The hotel from 1930 has the great tile work, beams and architectural details you would expect. Situated on a knoll overlooking the water the outdoor patio is a beautiful place for morning coffee or afternoon drinks. The rooms range from cozy to spacious and have the basic amenities required. There is a very good cigar shop and they have two...
