Enjoying a mojito (or whichever drink you prefer) in the Hotel Nacional terrace is a real pleasure. Besides, the hotel is really beautiful and a true Havana classic

A rich history and beautifully restored hotel, we stepped back into history upon walking into the lobby. We walked right on through to the outdoor area -- and kept on going to the tables overlooking the ocean and the main road. A cool breeze was coming in off the water and we enjoyed the last mojitos, pina coladas and cubatas... More

We wanted to dine at the historic Nacional Hotel due to the history. They have 2 restaurants. The inside restaurant was closed when we arrived so we dined in the outside restaurant. Food was just ok. I had the roast pork which was overly salty and my husband had the filet which he said was ok. Drinks were average quality.... More

Even if you are not staying in this hotel it's still worth visiting. The Hall of Famous Guests is well worth a visit just to see the famous people that have stayed at the hotel over the years, then after that walk through the garden and down to the end where you can enjoy a relaxing drink while looking out...

Walked from our "casa particular" to the Hotel Nacional and decided to have breakfast downstairs where the buffet was set up. The venue was fairly dark and gloomy. Windows weren't clean. The guy at the door asked our room number. Told him we would pay cash. Found a table as no one pointed us to one. Then after a long... More

I didn't get the chance to stay in this hotel but it was a good spot to relax, use WIFI and grab a drink which was the best one I had...and it was STRONG. Gave me a nice kick for the rest of the night.

We popped in for drinks and a rest after sightseeing so we can't comment about the rooms. The terrace area was cool and comfortable with great views, and the drinks were not expensive. It was very relaxed as lots of Americans staying and they always dress down. We walked down to the end of the terrace, but it was disappointing... More

You can't visit Havana without at least dropping in to see this place! I did not stay in the hotel, but I can report that their namesake cocktail was as good as any I have tasted. I was in sheer ecstasy sitting on the plush couches and enjoying this timeless masterpiece. We strolled the grounds and took a peek at... More

In the morning, have coffee on the beautiful terrace and stroll through the hotel lobby. In the evening drinking cocktails with a nice view of the sea. Prices are OK, staff good and friendly.

This was once th hotel in Havana and has a history going back to before the revolution It is big, dated and anonymous. It has a story that it shows off in a picture gallery about gangsters and politicians. Our visit was on a guided tourist trail where we went to look and not to stay. Can't speak for the... More
