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...

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...

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...

We had a mojito in the Hall of Fame bar. It was delicious. Also wandered around the lobby and enjoyed seeing the grounds - would stay here if we return as it looked like a very nice hotel and the cost per night seemed reasonable.

I stayed in the Hotel Nacional de Cuba which is one the best in Havana. It made me feel I was going back in time when it was built in 1930. It has lovely gardens over looking the sea and the art deco is amazing and it worth having a tour around the hotel which is free for guest. You...

We stayed for 2 nights in this iconic hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. There are, however, a few issues that could easily and should quickly be addressed: 1. When we arrived we were given a room effectively without a window (whole window covered with a wooden plank). That is absolutely unacceptable for a 5 star hotel charging...
