Wonderful hotel 3 night stay

This is a wonderful historical hotel and I enjoyed every minute of my stay .Begining with this charming man who sorted out my booking and gave me a wonderful historical room 324 ...thank you so much.I stayed here this time in Cuba so I could once again go to the Cabaret Parisian on Friday evening and also had my evening set meal there ...loved the evening and I stayed until 1pm , knowing I was just able to walk back to my room when ever I wanted .On Saturday evening I went to the Buena Vista band show , such a joy to see the various artists once again . Must add that I love the mature gentleman at both entrances to the cabaret and Buena Vista band events , they add class and feeling of the 50's in my view anyway .Lunch at th Cuban restaurant in the hotel grounds was suberb...cost 20 cuc ....worth every cuc. Could not eat it all , but had a good attempt . my breakfast was included and as far as I am concerned it was more than adequate ....loved the fresh fruit too. I also want to say how I loved having a drink in the bar where all the photographs of over hundred artists and politicians were displayed. The two bar tenders Carlos and Lorenzo were just so good , as several large groups enter and they get their drinks ready in record time . I loved this hotel so much and all the facilities , the nearness to the centre , I will return , but next time stay for at least 7 nights .

Lovely grounds, historic hotel, glad I didn't stay there!

This is a lovely historic property to check out while you are in Havana. Reviewers are right that it is moldy inside so if you are sensitive or asthmatic, stay away. I was impressed with the pool area -although no guests were poolside midday on a Sunday. We went to the dining room for Sunday brunch. It was 13 CUC and it was pretty awful. I did have a solid cup of coffee though. Nice to stroll the around grounds, see the hotel but I wouldn't get a room here. I would have liked to go to the top to enjoy the view in the evening which I hear is nice but we didn't have time.

Lovely historic building

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Nacional for a couple of nights last week. We fell in love with the history of the place. My husband really enjoyed having rum and cigars in the gardens with the beautiful view of the mallecon. Breakfast was great with a huge range of food and live music. I personally found the bed quite uncomfortable but overall we had a great time and I'd certainly recommend it.

Hotel Nacional de Cuba - Near The Malecon

While staying in Vedado, I visited and utilized the hotel on multiple occasions.The hotel is located in the Vedado section of Havana; near the Malecon and not far from the U.S. Embassy.I used the hotel travel office to reserve a bus tour to Vinales ($67CUC departs @ 730AM)The hotel has a Cadeca in the basement level, to exchange foreign currency. They offer the same exchange rate as the airport; but without the long line.An excellent place to take in an elevated view of the city & the Malecon, while enjoying a very inexpensive mojito ($3CUC) outdoors. When I didn't feel like walking 30 minutes: Paid $5CUC for small yellow (2-person) cab from the beginning of the Malecon in Havana Vieja (old Havana) to Hotel Nacional.

Amazing Hotel, Snobby Staff

Hi, We were so excited to stay at this hotel. I loved the fact that it is five star, therefore the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was great, and we were very comfortable. I like that it had a European style bathtub. The pool staff was kinda snobby with so many rules for the pool chairs. Drinks are expensive and you pay US $3 for a small water. Go across the street to a club and purchase large water bottles for $1.
